OK, here's the deal. I am getting pretty tired of the fact that GW hasn't released a Tau FAQ that deals with some key issues. I am also getting a little tired of watching Orks, Space Marines and Imperial Guard getting updated models like the Killa-Kan and Dreadnought when all us Tau players are waiting around, getting punked by 5th Edition Codices. Latest news on BOLS is that there will be another splash release of more Ork and Space Marines with the new Spearhead Expansion.
So I am calling out to all of you readers out there to help me in an email campaign to Games Workshop. The point of this campaign will be to firstly get all those niggling questions about the Tau Codex answered. The second and ulterior motive to demonstrate that the Tau Empire has a legitimate fan-base and dammit, we want a new codex.
So what I want to do with this first post is to collect questions that need answering. Please comment and leave me the top questions you'd like answering. Questions that are not covered in any rulebook or Codex. Here are my 3:
Number 1: How do flechette dischargers work in vehicle squadrons?
Number 2: There are two items of wargear in the Tau codex that ignore line of sight when targeting, the seeker missile and smart missile system. While the smart missile system is clear in how cover is worked out (pg. 27 Tau Codex) but the seeker missile entry on pg 30 has no explanation of how cover is worked out. Does the seeker missile work in the same way as smart missile systems? How are cover saves determined when firing seeker missiles?
Number 3: With the absence of Target Priority Tests in 5th Edition, how do Target Locks work when equipped on infantry and battlesuits?
You post me your questions and I will draft an email for all of you copy, paste then fire off to GW. We'll do this everyday until they release a new FAQ or a new Codex whichever comes first. Sound crazy? Never underestimate the power of your voice. Hopefully this will show GW that there is a fan-base of an army that really needs some love like all them Spaceboys and Orkboys out there.
