RUMOURS-Tau

They should be this epic.

The ‘facts’

-Battlesuit Commander: shifts ONE battlesuit unit to a Troops FOC slot.
-New Close Combat Battlesuit
-New Ethereal named character
-Ethereals will get upgraded to be the “leader” role in the Tau Empire army. (so not the best BS, or WS, but other interesting army-support tricks)
-New deepstriking Dropship (an Orca-ish platform on par with the IG valkyrie)
-Up-gunned Drone variants (specific anti-tank and anti-heavy infantry options) which can be attached to almost every TAU unit in the codex

Thoughts:

The way this is shaping up, it should be a brilliant Codex for the blue Communists. The improvements to the Ethereals may well mean that the Space Pope stops sucking and starts selling, which I’m sure is what GW wants to happen.

Also, it’ll be good to see some more drones, as they give the army a character, something that it defiantly needs.
