We have been waiting to see what the cover art is going to be, and get a chance to see it. It's always a big deal when it hits, and Tau will be no different. While this morning we are not getting a look at it..... at least not yet, we are getting a description of the artwork.


Please remember that like always, information before a release are always considered rumors, so add in a little salt.

The new cover is of a Crisis suit. The suit is posed with one leg on a boulder, whilst shooting a target to the suit's right with a fusion blaster.

  1. Sounds like the cover of the old battle force

  2. I'm pumped. The new codex covers have all been incredible.

  3. The new books in general are amazingly produced, the art and covers are some of the best they've ever done and the overall quality justifies the high price...Just needs more fluff, but I say that about everything.

    1. A bit of proof reading wouldn't go amiss but I'm inclined to agree.

    2. Yeah I agree with both points. They sure look amazing. But two pages of printouts to fix all the mistakes is uncool. Proof read!

    3. The Art is for the Most (apart from 2 pics) all Old stuff with a Splash of paint. Its Not like they put in work or Money for that.
      The Cover Art has gotten much better.
      But the Proof Reading has gotten worse. And its Not like they are changeing much Text of the Old dex. A few Point costs Here & there and a Hand Full of New Units. Old Units so far have Hardly changed rules.
      The Hardcover and the Cover Art are the only Real improvments & they are chargeing for that. Would be much nicer if i didnt' Need 2 extra Pages of FAQs with the dex.

  4. Really? I was expecting the cover to have a fire warrior on the cover because all the other covers had troop choices on the cover. This still sounds pretty cool none the less.

    1. Well the Dark Angels cover has a company Master on it. Seeing as only HQ choices can use iron halos.

    3. You could argue that the daemon codex has a herald on the front judging by the bling/armour as opposed to being a nekkid daemon :P

  5. 100 Dollars says that it's also done by Raymond Swanland (like the last 3).
    Only Swanland can paint truly grimdark.

  6. That image for this post looks suspiciously like the imperial command image that includes lord general lord commissar etc that's in the guard codex

    1. Pretty sure that's from either the first tau codex or the Eye of Terror campaign
