Here is a nice rumor set detailing some of the rules we have been discussing. It also looks like those that were declaring Power Weapons to be AP3 were wrong (BoW). The next big thing is that the psychic powers that you get out of the rulebook are indeed just minor powers that you get in addition to the ones you purchase in your codex. I know this was something we discussed here previously on Faeit 212. (there are counter rumors to this though, I will be posting later)

So a Lot of details are coming in fast regarding the new rulebook, and I hear my supplier already has my order. Need to make that call to verify.... Other cool things, are aegis defense lines, are very cheap pt wise.... Looks like time to pick one up or make some of my own.

One other thing incase you don't read between the lines.... Tau Firewarriors, Rapid Fire is now half range, which means extended 15" rapid fire, just like back in the day.
