Bordering on the edges of space and the immaterium, we are surrounded, our very existence is threatened, as we are pushed the brink of a total collapse and annihilation. Although our future looks bleak, there is a break in the enveloping darkness, a dimming light. It is that light that we must reach out and embrace, for only through the Emperors vision is salvation within reach.

Tau Dreadknight Rumors
There was a lot of confusion this week regarding rumors for a new Tau Battlesuit on whether or not it was for a Walker or a Dreadknight like monstrous creature. Obviously we are looking playtesting options for what is probably the same unit.
So following that line of thinking I’ve collected all the Tau Battlesuit rumors for the week, so that they can be seen in one place, and readers can get an idea for which options they would like to see. After all you never know who might be reading in the comment sections.
Anybody who might be interested in what tau models (or at least one of them) you can really expect next year might want to type “Fil Dunn tau” into a google image search.
Just to clear things up there IS something very similar to that image coming for tau.

I do have sources telling me there is a bigger suit, which has been reported from others. Reports have it being a ranged beast(metaphorically, not literally) with 2 twin linked rail cannons and a missile option.
Basically according to my sources it’s pretty much a Dreadknight sized suit with dual (note not twin linked) rail cannons and SMS with a rule for something I will call “hail-fire” in that it shoots massive barrage of weaponry if not moving in the movement phase.

Finally towards the end of the week, there were some information regarding a possible Ork model wave early in 2013, placing the following releases somewhere along these lines from Shaso Iceborn over on Warseer
January: Dark Angels
February: Chaos Deamons
April: Ork Model Wave
