You might have a problem when the battlesuit half of your tau army is 8pts shy of 8k
And like I said, that's only the suit half of my tau collection

I probably have that much in infantry/armor for my tau - and easily that much in my BA

Hi @alphalas, how do you plan on handling Inquisitor Coteaz? In IA his profile is almost identical, except that he has a new special rule: Lord of Formosa. Will there be two versions for him as well, or will the new rule be added to the old profile?

there will have to be two versoins of him, as both sources are legal currently

@deanofcool @FarseerVeraenthis Simon can you please explain to Dean the formation attachments? I think that is his issue is he is using the elite slot selection which is the inquisition not Codex imperial agents

There - walk through is posted
Oh, @FarseerVeraenthis, IA does let you give one DW vet squad ObSec if you take the formation- hell if you take a full 10 man you can combat squad to 2 5 man ObSec DW vet squads
All this is via Coteaz, obviously

Super, that should answer all of everyone's questions... And yes, I did think about that but I am building a rather large Deathwatch army atm...
But thanks :-)

FYI, eldar leaks are out I think... Just seen a far-too-blurry-to-read shot...
Looks like a formation with avengers and wyches so, more multi codex shenanigans...

@Thairne I tweeted the uvoice link to Jon - he accidentally responded to a BS user's tweet to me regarding inq issues with his account, then deleted and reresponded with the BS twitter

@FarseerVeraenthis Got some eagle-eyed Faeit 212 readers that think they saw: "Yeah, the sword or emissary gives +1 BS and WS to a unit in the formation. Furious Charge to any unit if x" from another unit in the formation. And a bonus to a new rule in this book" and "The 2nd formation with wyches, storm guardians (or black guardians which get their own rules in this book), and harlequin troupe. Something about start of the assault sub phase grants hatred, or preferred enemy if something really good happens".

Jan 25 2017 20:56
Black guardians are back? Awesome

Who knows, we might even see some more craftworld-specific units. Would be nice. But I'm not getting my hopes up for that.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jan 25 2017 21:25
Well from what I say it's specifically Ulthwe so there's not much else craftworld specific there - now if it were Il'Kaithe and bonesingers were coming back that would make my gf and I happy
I had that commission painted for her
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
Jan 25 2017 21:32
That's pretty neat! Bonesingers would be awesome, but I think we'll be seeing something entirely new instead. Perhaps not yet in Gathering Storm II (apart from that triumvirate), but sometime later in the year.
Or with 8th, of course.

Might see some Biel-Tan specific units/formations, what with it being called The Fracture of Biel-Tan ;)
