We’ve got the book in hand and we’re going over all the units that are listed in the new Codex: T’au Empire!

Sit back and grab a snack as we take you through all the units listed in Codex: T’au Empire:


While many of the units stayed the same stat-wise, there were quite a few tweaks to points, power-levels, and perhaps more importantly to weapons stats. We covered a lot of those changes to the weapons HERE. Over-all there were a few standouts in the new book, Coldstar Commanders with 4 Hard-points and the ability to move up to 40″ in a turn (with the Fly Keyword) means there won’t be anywhere on the board those guys can’t go. Plus if you have the “old” T’au Commander models you can now use those with all 4 hard points AND fancy armor to make them a tough nut to crack!

Overall, we think this is codex is very similar in release the Eldar book in the way it has been changed from the Index. Much like the Eldar book, not a lot changed rules-wise, but it just received a bunch of little tweaks to bring it inline with the new edition.

We’ll be covering the Relics, Traits, and stratagems in a future video. The T’au codex is up for Pre-order today and will be available next weekend!

Codex: T’au Empire


The T’au Empire is spreading, its boundless ambitions yet to be checked. Although world after world has been subsumed under their control, the T’au believe it is only the start of their new unified order, the first steps of a long journey that will end in a better existence for all. In their hearts they know it is their destiny to bring the light of truth to a galaxy drowning in darkness, and none have the right to deny their progress across the stars. If resistance is encountered, negotiations are swiftly and aggressively replaced with a purely military solution.


Do you have a favorite unit from the T’au book so far? Which one do you think is your “most improved” unit?
