if I remember right the new Spess Mahreen codices are rather bad for Tau.
How so? *Looks worriedly at his Tau army*
Terminators with Insane saves against everything. even more then normal, and that appeared to make them soak up XV 88 Fire and Hammerhead submunitions like nothing.
Granted this is Hearsay
Edit: Not to be confused with HERESSSSSYYYYY

So I can forget about that Necron army of mine...
Crons are getting dated, not that I have a problem with that, I play Tau, Crons sort of super crimp my style. almost as bad as the Tyranids against crons.
As I recall from most every single game I played against them back in the day, the space zombies where ruthlessly overpowered.
I'm no Warhammer player but hasn't Move-And-Shoot been a problem with the game with the recent stuff? Even with the Chaos Spess Mehrens, who are supposed to be insane and tentacled and probably more interested in hitting things with axes and clubs rather than calmly retreating and firing?
Also, Bill - that has to be the first fsjal I remotely enjoy.

I play a move and shoot army. tau that stand still are usually dead tau.
As a Tau player who fihgts mosty Marines, the only thing they have to worry about right now is drop pods, the best I would do is use fire warroirs to tie them up and keep them tied up with a ethereal
but yeah KEEP MOVING The Tau are not the IG

Oh, I'm not implying that isn't a valid tactic, just that some armies that shouldn't, thematically, use that tactic, do.
I think GW would kill me if they ever heard I bought a Death miniature to use for my Nightbringer model
By the way, does GW like ironic names or what? The Necron Flayed Ones are the one doing the flaying, and the Unfleshed are more flesh than anything else...
Oh HELL yes! Just recieved my Ork Goff Rockers on the mail!
I totally want to get the Goff Rockers and then pretend that they're Nobs or something just so that I can actually put them on the field.
I myself figured they might make for good weirdboyz or flash gitz, due to their antics.
I could afford a small Malleus army, but painting things reeks of ART, and ART makes me ill in the pants. Also, the thought of actually going into the public with a 40k army is frightening.
I'll stick to Dawn of War and Warhammer Online.
Seriously. I hate drawing, music, and pinting.

I need to finish painting my Tau army. I inadvertantly made them Kel'Shan. that's gray with black accents and blue detailing. metal is all silver. optics all red. Squad markings in green, but I may change to coloring to depict their roles.
I collect Tau too! But I Haven't had time to paint them 'cos I've had a lot of stress hmm'kay

so the guy with the ultramarine avvy plays the Space Weeaboos?
My Tau were mainly a concoction of Dark Angels green and Scorched brown on armour with white and blue highlights for decals and lights respectively. I liked to think of them as jungle fighters, so I was always liberally spread bush and flock on their bases. Somewhere in the depths of the Photos thread is a picture of one of them I posted months back.
mine are SPESS TAU
I know this question may seem a little silly, but is the Milky Way the only galaxy in the WH40K setting that contains native life? I know, the Tyranids are explicitly extragalactic and said to have come from the Andromeda galaxy to our own (and may not even originate from there!), but other than that, is there anything the official fluff (or Word of God) that asserts the inexistence of any other life-bearing galaxy?

Well, the tyranids are technically proof that there are life in other galaxies, right? Other than them, I see no reason to bother with arguing about life in other galaxies, except if members of some race decides to leave the Milky Way for some (hopefully) less fucked up galaxy. Makes me wonder if the Chaos Gods or C'Tan have any influence in other galaxies too, by the way. It wouldn't surprise me if the Chaos gods at least had some kind of influence outside of the Milky Way.
Anyway, I am happy to see some diversity finally on the space marine pages on the GW webpage now. Yesterday 90% of all non chapter specific model sets had the goddamn Ultrasmurfs representing them. Now at least I see Blood Angels on about a third of the showcase images.
There is speculation that other galaxies may have their own version of the Warp, or that the Warp actually extends across the entire universe, but is mostly "deathly calm" in the lifeless voids between life-bearing galaxies (although I wouldn't rule out the existence of some really wierd Eldritch Abominations [even by WH40K's standards]).
Maybe other galaxies have their own "Daemons" and "Chaos Gods"... and maybe there's another galaxy "far, far away" that is even worse than WH40K's Milky Way.
And since the C'Tan are described to have been born with the birth of the universe itself, I'm firmly convinced that extragalactic C'Tan do exist - they just may not have been "awakened" like the Necrons did with the ones we're familiar with.
On another note: The very presence of Blanks/Untouchables are anathema to Psykers and Daemons (as well as other psychic/Warp entities), right? Then what happenes if they were to conduct Warp travel? Are they even able to do that in the first place?
