  1. So why were all the rumors for $75 Crisis suit packs?

    1. Because $75US is whats next to the picture of them in the leaked WD pics. Maybe they changed it to 65.

    2. and also, the current pricing on XV-8 would lead you to believe that they would cost 3x$25=$75.
      It's hard to believe that they knocked off $10 for 2 packaging boxes (and potentially 2 decal sheets)

  3. Wait a minute, did I read that right...

    The new Tau Battleforce coming out is going to be resin?

    Did I miss something?

    1. Pretty sure it's listed that way cuz the commander is resin, so that magically labels the whole thing "resin" for some reason.

    2. That's exactly what jumped out on me.

    3. CastJ- good catch. I hope that's an incorrect entry.

    4. im sure its because of the commander.

      This is the form that retailers are getting.

    5. It doesn't list the commander in the battleforce. Just 3 battlesuits+ drones, 3 stealth suits, 12 fire warriors + drones and a piranha. Unless its only 2 battlesuits plus the commander but wouldn't they say that. I mean having a resin $41 dollar figure would be a big selling point. Also whens the last mixed resin plastic battleforce been. I think its a typo.

    6. The battleforce is in black like the rest of the plastic, all resin is either blueish or red. So its probably just a misprint, seems GW is full of those when it comes to Tah

    1. i agree, im curious, but i really really doubt its blanche, hes never drawn tau art before i dont think

    2. It'll probably be the same as the normal cover but on a dust jacket with the army's symbol on the hardcover beneath.

      That's what my DA codex has.

  6. I thought White Dwarf picture clearly shows that the crisis team is $75 USD?

  7. The kits that are being updated, aside from the Hammerhead and Battlefore, are now off the GW site.

  10. Will the limited edition codex be available at my local hobby store (non-games workshop) if I preorder with them. Or will I have to order it separately from the Games Workshop site?

    My best guess is no and that is why it is in red font but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

  11. What do the different colors mean? Is the black and blue just trade plastic and resin kits, and the red direct only? I wonder what the shoulder pads look like. Thats kinda cool the Tau didn't really have bits be for just extra drones and the command frame.

  12. I am putting together a bunch of Tau information right now. Apparently someone has the White Dwarf in hand.

  13. Man, I can't wait to field Thrain in my Tau list.

    1. I think gandalf the grey would be much better for psychic defence and duelling balro... I mean, bloodthirsters. Not sure about bilbo, but I hear he has a 2+ cover save xD

  14. I hate GW's pricing staff. I know we all do, (especially those of us in Australia) but really. 85$ US to 100$ CAD? Who came up with that?
    *goes off to sob quietly at lack of funds for 40k*

  15. The items in blue are 'splash releases'. They're orderable for a limited time through trade sales, then move over to direct. Unlike items in red which are only ever available through direct.

  16. Annoying that they've repackaged the Sky Ray/Hammerhead into one box and added $10 :/

    1. No, this is the worse thing of all - The Skyrays always had all the parts for a Hammerhead in them, it just didn;t say as such.

      So they have literally added a word on the front of the box (Skyray to Hammerhead / Skyray), swapped an image on the back of the box to show both, and slapped $10 more on it.

      Its not even a freaking redisgn in anyway. Thats cold GW, very cold.

  17. Farsight enclave shoulder pads? All the reason I needed to redo all of my fire warriors. (that and they look like garbage)
