Hell, play our cards right and we might just see 3+ cover if we jump back and forth between ruins.

I can remember when Tau did not exist. Hopefully they'll be less of a Star Wars / Anime ripoff this time around.
Simple answer to the problem: Beat them with a dreadsock, then refuse to play them anymore.
Unless you play them in a tournament.
Longstrike looks like hes trying to be a DJ
Darkstrider looks lie the legs are to wrong way round. Thats just my opinion on the pose. They look unstable, and likely to fall over if they fired their Carbine.
I'm concerned the new Comander kit is not very posable. All the pictures show the same leg pose, and the arms seem to have the hands molded on.
Farsight looks ok, but Anybody with the old pieces could have pulled off the same pose. Again, he seems to be pre-made to have a single pose. Not very customisable
Cadre Fireblade looks like hes about to throw his Bonding Knife down in disgust. And anyone else notice that the Bonding knife, looks more like a combat knife, rather than a Ceremonial Blade?
The Pathfinders are just a collosal "Fuck You" to any person (Like myself) who used the Fire Warriors box to covert their own Pathfinders. It isn't need. The Drones could have been their own little box, along with the PF special Weapons. Oh, would you look at that, one PF is holding an infantry size Ion weapon. So much for Tau not utilizing "Heavy Weapons" on organic troops
Looks like they have simply combined the Hammerhead and Sky Ray into one kit. Anyone who can do math would have seen this coming from years ago, and its surprising they've waited until now. Oh wait, it isn't a surprise, the price is probably £10 more just for being the same as before.
Broadside looks cool. I admit, I never tried to convert my Broadsides to this design myself, mostly because I never bought the actuall Broadside Kit (I convert my own Railguns, god dammit).
Now we're getting to something which is shocking. The XV8 Crisis Team, is actually cheaper then buying three battlesuits individually. Holy Shit GW, maybe ther is hope for you yet!! But one kit among many is not going to save your ass.
The Riptide isn't my cup of tea. From a design point of view, it just doesn't really "work" in my mind. That waist joint just screams "I'M THE WEAK SPOT, FOCUS ATTENTION HERE!!!"
On the subject of the "Collections." GW seems to havelearnt its lesson from the Flyers release. The Recon Team is cheaper than buying seperately, though the Kroot Merc collection just about matches seperate pricing.
To my knowledge of the new DAs, they can't do that. I don't have the DA codex, so I could be wrong.
If he's "Deep Striking" from "Reserve" than he does forfeit, as nothing is on the table for him turn 1. Reserves are always from Turn 2, I'm positive on this.
DA have the ability to chose to ds on turn 1 or 2 if they are ds with specifc terminator models. He writes down on a paper if he is ds on 1 or 2.And can these "specific" units be taken as troops? or is it an army wide ability? Or as Terms can be taken as troops, do they obviously come in turn1, and his more specialist units (HQ, Elites) come in first due to SRs?
