Here's your second dose.
T?au Empire Tactica - Part 2 - Warhammer Community
T'au being the sept they chose "so you can get Aun'va" is hysterical. Unless Aun'va somehow got *amazing,* he will remain the stupidest, least useful model in the game. Vior'la all the way, guys. Darkstrider just ain't that good. Hey, how about Vespids!
They've gotten so much better! And by that we mean they sound as though they've remained exactly the same!
One thing I will say for 8th edition is that combat has become far less deadly for the Tau. I mean, it's still bad, but whole units evaporating when they were touched by the merest tactical marine is a thing of the past, thank god. The prospect of using your Devilfish to assault
your shooting target (thereby making it impossible for that target to assault *you* next turn) is pretty huge.
Overall I'm bullish on the mechanized firewarriors in this edition. Always have been, really. Is it as good as the Bork'an 42" pulse rifle wall? Well...no. Not remotely. But it does look playable, which is important.
As usual, I find the "tactical" insight in these articles to be vague and generally short-sighted.
