    1. I am sure there is going to be an FAQ coming soon. After all with the last several months, the release schedule has been insane. There might very well be a small gap, where things like this are updated.

  2. I think I'll stick to just a normal codex. The limited edition one is $120 CAD.

    1. Without ANY additional material to compensate, yeah not worth the investment when new toys are a must.

  3. Don't like the look of the limited edition codex. Crisis suits got cheaper!

    1. I noticed that too. Interestingly, the sigle suit is still available. Of course it now seems silly to get it - $41 Au for 1 XV8, or $80 Au for 3 XV8s! Behold, GWs first ever discount! I'm surprised they aren't milking the hell out of the price drop.
      Also, $90 Au for a Riptide, $76 Au for the Flyer, and $48 Au for Pathfinders; GW are putting out great Aussie prices for this release. If this is a new trend, then I'm stoked! :D. Even the Battleforce is cheaper, and it has more stuff. Thank you, GW!

    2. Any idea if XV8s will be redone later on as a second wave? The new pics show a new and similar design to the enforcer armor. Namely the waist. Any whispers, Natfka?

    3. Parallelogram- When metal blood crushers and metal chaos knights got to plastic, they were cheaper.

  4. Let the typos commence. The xv8 commander page says we have access to a "psychic ion blaster".

    1. Well maybe he does! Nothing in the codex has been leaked to prove otherwise. I'm crossing my fingers for new and interesting weapons.

    2. And here they said the Tau didn't have psykers or show up on the warp.

    3. I'm gonna keep calling it that anyway, just to see if opponents notice...

    4. Deny the witch ... wait uh what?

  5. I wonder whats up with the battleforce box? We saw the pics of the one with 3 xv8s, 3 stealth suits, piranha and 12 fire warriors but I didn't see it on GW's site. The old one is still there and available. Did I miss it?

    1. Order list for stores showed it being available a month late. No clue why. This bit was published here a day or so ago.

      Delete
    2. Yeah I must have missed it. Made my order online from on of the resellers and saw a may 4 release on it through there site. Kinda stinks but I will stay busy with the other stuff I ordered.

  6. Pathfinder page shows at least two ion rifles come in the kit if the picture is to be believed. Wonder what this means for their rules.

    1. Correction: sprues show three ion and three rail. Maybe a single box can create a three man sniper team as well as a 7 man marker team?

    2. while that would be amazing i highly doubt it.

      Delete
    3. It would make both except the min squad size is 4 as of right now.

  7. I love the alternate cover, to bad it's so expensive, I'm going to have to debate whether or not I want to get it...

    1. I debated...the cover lost.
      Maybe a down payment on a riptide :-)

    2. It does look very cool, I thought about it for a while, but had to decide no in the end. I'd probably have ended up buying a copy of the standard one anyway since I wouldn't want to throw a LE book in my bag for gaming, so it'd just be a £60 book to sit at home and look nice on the shelf. That £40 saved bought me an extra flier and character model ;-)

  8. Also they are overcharging for http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat440286a&prodId=prod2000017a by like a good $20US

    1. ok i think i know what the problem is i think there is a XV15 Stealth Armor Shas'ui that isn't listed. if you add that it comes out right.

      but i wouldn't risk. if you want all the models just add them to the cart individually. i may call GW monday and ask about it even though i don't need over half of the models anyway.

    2. The report on the front page says it comes with those god awful colours. So they probably forget to mention that.

  10. The Riptide is the size of a Hammerhead!?! Oh my Jebus! :O

    ReplyDelete
  11. Models-wise, the Pathfinders are my new favourite unit - some of the poses are sweet. Not sure about the Cadre Fireblade tho. The GW photos show the models from some unusual angles. I posted some here.

  12. I'M THROWING MONEY AT THE SCREEN AND NOTHING'S HAPPENING!!!!!

    Way to drain my wallet with ANOTHER price increase GW...

    Sigh..such the price to play...

  14. Such a shame the Battleforce isn't available just yet.

  15. My opinion on the Tau models:

    Riptide: SOOOO much better then I thought it would be, the double jointed legs and the head not being as tiny as I originally thought really make me like this model.

    Flyer: hahaha no. The one without the retarded missle pods on it's rear is passable though.

    Pathfinders: These guys seem to suffer from really seemingly strange proportions. I like the new weapons and drones, but the pathfinders themselves look strange.

    Commander: Looks good, a little disorienting when compared to the regular Crisis battlesuits.

    Farsight: this guy's feet make NO sense. They are like horse's but horses have four legs to help them balance.

    Overall: Not a great release. Might be worthwhile if the price was right but that is certainly not the case.

  16. Who is the author of the Codex by the way? I seem to have completely missed it.. Is it Vetock?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Is the one click collection a deal? Adding the individuals looks like you get the LE book at a savings.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Interesting note: Longstrike is listed under Heavy Support while Darkstrider is listed under HQ on the GW website. Longstrike is thus an upgrade like Seargent Telion and Darkstrider may have more chapter tactics type rules.
