  The rumor mill is churning once again and speculation is that once GW gets Age of Sigmar going the next new dex will be Tau.  Personially I hope that this is true with a caviat. I want them to give the Tau a similar treatment to the Space Marines. The Tau are a very good army now  with cool unit design and I don't want to see a major shift in how they play or look.  I would love to see some formations, buffed flyers, and please, for the love of the greater good, a surperheavie with d weapons, like the bipedial walker of pain shown by forgeworld.

I saw the new TAU walker FW sculpt a few weeks ago. I'm not sure it won't be a Gargantuan Creature and not a Superheavy. I only think that due to the lack of walkers in the TAU army.
I also think there is a new D weapon trend. Making a weapon act as a D weapon on a roll of some kind and not directly by profile. Like the Shock attack gun or the Land Speeder Vengeance.
I may be wrong on that but it would be plausible.

usable super heavy?!
I still consider the riptide to be arguably the best legal unit in the game

Wish I did. Speculation is very soon though. My local game store says that GW is not restocking crisis suits or fire warriors and usually the new des drops around the same time as the new models

Sooo, the new xv128 supremacy battle suit is ridiculous. 18 bazillion guns, can stand up to Tyranid monstrous creatures, has 10 wounds, and mitigates str D.
Don't try making a unit unkillable. its a waste of time and the dice gods laugh at you for wasting your time. Dedicate a unit to a job and make sure it does it til it's either dead or running.

It looks good and sounds fantastic.
It's out of my price range right now. With the codex release and a few new large models to come.
I have an army that all painted but don't play them. (longish story there.)
I've been thinking about getting the new stuff to add to the army I have to encourage the sale.
Funny thing is I suspect that adding the new units, book and card set will come up to the price of the XV 128.

Yeah, for the price of the storm surge you can probably get the new book, objective cards, and perhaps the new battle suit commander if you're feeling up for an update to the command structure.
