These Biggass dudes in the background here are the size of mountains desu. Though given how light they are in lore they probably wouldn't shatter mountains, due to their hollow bone structure and psionic lightness.

They are nonetheless however in the right size scale. Keep in mind all those jumping tau they completely dwarf are 12 foot tall battlesuits, and that puts these boys at substantially above Godzilla scale.

Tell me more about Tau. Are they good for casual play? How do you think their codex will change them?

T'au once again prove that they are the good guys. In unity lays the true defeat of the Tyranid menace.

Canonically this image is of gorgon, even though the scheme looks like kraken. I assumed they were more of a mottled grey with spots, as they are more adaptable.

This and that picture of Vostroyans vs Tau from the Apocalypse book (I think).

Best pic I found of that is this one
If anyone has a better pic, it'd be appreciated if it was posted

Okay what if the Tau's lost Fourth Sphere Fleet materialised above Baal and they (with or without Girlyman's crusade) helped the Blood Angels defeat the Tyranid fleet? The Tau and Imperials would forge an alliance afterwards to pacify/cleanse the Dark Imperium.

Would this make it better?

What about the Tau doe?

>> No.53317135 [View]

It's grimdark for the imperium because the period has all worlds of the Imperium besieged and war torn. It will last for centuries of suffering and bloodshed.

It's only noblebright for the Tau who are in a Great Crusade mode launching Expansion Sphere after another. With the Imperium ravaged by the Great Rift and its countless enemies, the Tau surely will make massive gains in east and wherever the Fourth Sphere Fleet will materialise in. The Tau have nothing to look forward to but expansion and progress a brighter note than the downer note that was given to them by "Mont'ka" and the Firewall.

Have any stories like this from when you first started playing?

So you think it's fluffy that 40K armies stand in lines mere meters apart and shoot at each other?

I wasn't thinking anything with the battlesuits.

What I had in mind was something like the German WW1 soldiers in Sucker Punch that are powered by "steam and clockwork" only the Tau use plasma power and (I dunno) gyros(?) to reanimate the corpses of Fire Warriors. Especially to fight against the Tyranids - no fear and the degraded biomass would be of questionable value to the Hive Mind.

>> No.42290504 [View]

Is there any conceivable way for all (at the very least the most reasonable) the races to fight the Tyranids together? As a combined effort? Obviously this is heresy, but why would GW introduce such a destructive faction if no one race could beat it? Do you think they will write-in some undiscovered superweapon for the IoM? Or perhaps the Eldar create a super-webway portal and escape out of reach of the Tyranids? Discuss your ideas.

Tau. I got into wh40k after finding dawn of war in a bargain bin, but it was seeing the tau that convinced me to get involved in the tabletop stuff.

I like their mechs and appreciate how they are actually trying to constantly push their technology forward. From a fluff point of view I also like how their combat doctrine works. Go in, kill stuff, take the important bits and leave. I also like to think that they know the greater good stuff is bs and are just proficient students of intergalactic realpolitik, but that's just my headcanon.

>> No.33342350 [View]

It's sad to say that as a Tau player, but the Tau are doomed from start. Even as the young race they are there's already division (Farsight) and in the massive shitstrom that is 40k "order" can never prevail.

Their only chance is to be persuasive enough for the imperium to join them, but i don't see that happening.

They will expand far enough to be in a constant war in the borders of their realm with the Imperium and nids.
They will lose so many lives, time and energy and all that they will come to hate the technology that only brought them misery and they'll be back to being primitive spiritual people, and their galactic expansion will be tales of legend.
