There are just too many Tau pics that do not do the race justice. They look a little too cartoonish, or rather weak. So this week for the Pics of the Week, I am throwing down my favorite Tau pics. Many of which I am sure you have already seen, but hopefully there are a couple new ones here.

Pics of the Week, is a weekly article that is scheduled for every Tuesday, but sometimes is delayed or forgotten. The pics come from the community at large and or my vast pic libraries that I like to collect.

  1. I love these little blue aliens and can't wait to see what they'll be getting when their codex is updated.

  2. Is that a space marine in tau colours in that 2nd to last pic?

    1. No not a Space Marine. Its a power suit that was made for humans originally made by inquistior, but his fellow brothers deemed it heretical. He sent the plans that basically got lost in the warp. The Tau found the ship and plans, and made the suit for their human auxillary, but the nids attacked the planet and the Tau are trying to get the plans off world. There is a website with the brief story and the suits specs. Once I find the link I will post it, but you can look up Tau from here, Natfka used the pic a few times and the link is posted. On a few of those.

    3. That looks awsome if you take a closer look at his right arm it looks very bionic. I am looking forwars to the new tau dex and I'm also interested to see if thd Demiurge are a part of the Tau or not. There are some really good pic's of the Demurige floating around as well.

  3. Looks like its a Lamenters marine to me.

    Tau have always been a cool army, but they've just been missing that edge in gameplay that makes me want to spend the time (and money) completing a list. I hope that is rectified when ever the new codex come out, I'd love to paint some of the suits.

  4. Those are some cool pictures! My favorites are the first one (by far) with the hazy, bloody battlefield and the huge monster yet to deal with, and the blood-spattered samurai. The tank picsture is really cool too -- is that an enhanced photo of a miniature?

  5. Fun fact: the picture at the very top is a commission my girlfriend got for me for Christmas and the original picture size is 9562x5312.

  6. Truth be told, the Tau aren't that bad. They have a good amount of firepower if you are willing to try and use it.

  7. I'm finding Mech Tau quite challenging to play against. The combination of Jink and there wargear that gives them shrouded gives there vehicles a 3+ cover save if they move. It takes time to try and punch through and take them out.

  8. I would play tau in a heart beat except the suits are rubbish models. I've had people say its to differentiate between tau and mecha but regardless they look stupid and make no sense from any perspective especially a technological perspective.
    The codex also isn't bad but it requires a lot of synergy and is obviously outdated now.

  9. I played tau in 3rd and 4th and had a blast with them. If they get a decent new codex I will be hard pressed to resist getting some as either allies to my eldar or a small.army in their own right.

  10. Tau are brilliant in 6th, I have destroyed chaos marines new dex with them, they have so much shooting it is unreal. Obviously they are very frail when assaulted but most assault units will struggle to get anywhere near a castle tau army. 3 up cover save to the tanks make them the most resilient mech army in the game. I haven't played necron with them but I would imagine they can possibly out gun even them.

  11. i dunno why people keep thinking that each codex is way awesome than the one before, in all this time each codex is based on the last and is a little improved it has some new spacial rules a new unit or 2, in this case a we ''must have a flyer'' but generally ''the apple doesn't fall that far from the tree''.

    as for the second, yes marines can be admitted in the tau for ''the grater good'' if the wish too i think there is also a picture of a tau terminator somewhere.
