Episode 108 – Show of Force: The Greater Good

sofgreatergoodEpisode 108 of The Independent Characters is all about The Tau! We cover it with our patented (not really) Show of Force approach. This time it's Show of Force: The Greater Good. We talk about everything Tau, from the history and details of the race, their reliance on futuristic technology and weaponry. We go inside the background, rules, supplements and excitement of the youngest race in the Warhammer 40k Universe!

We will discuss our experiences playing the Tau and how they perform on the tabletop in comparison to their backstory. To help us through all of this, we have brought in Jason McCurry of our local gaming group. Tau were his first army, and although he isn't actively playing them right now, he helps walk us through the confusion of marker drones, and ethereals!

Additionally, as recommended by Reece Robbins, we have Israel Sanchez to walk us through playing Tau in the competetive environment.

We hope you enjoy this episode!

    Thanks for such a great episode! T'au were my first army when I started back in 2004 and are still my favorite force. You thought 5th ed was hard on them, you should have tried 4th! I've only been able to play once or twice since the new codex. This episode got me excited to get them out and shooting again.
