Hello everyone !!

UPDATE : GW forgot Shadowsun points in the book.

here we are, again, doing a review on a Psychic Awakening chapter. This tiresome series of books that has been running for far too long. But at last, we are close to the end! This chapter focuses on Tau, Imperial Guards and Genestealer Cult, but mainly on tau as the blue aliens occupy half of the book ^^

The book itself is of very good quality (as usual) with a hard and beautiful cover depicting Commander Shadowsun in her new suit. Yea lovely image I hope they make a wallpaper out of it.

for the greater good warhammer 40000 cover

Tau Fluff

Fluff about the Tau is the good part of the Greater Good Chapter. It explains (briefly) the launch of the Fifth Sphere Expansion, how they miraculously connect with the survivor of the Fourth Sphere of expansion. Only one-quarter of the fourth survived the dive into the Warp, with survivor incapable of explaining how they escaped it. No human auxiliaries were found alive and all Tau that survived really hate humans now and commit war crime on them regularly. Some stuff must have happened in the warp but GW didn't expand on it ...
Also in the Nem'yar atoll, an immense Death Guard armada engaged the Tau Fifth sphere. The situation was so bad that Shadowsun decided to send a call to arms to the Tau Empire in case they were destroyed. But suddenly the Death Guard fleet ran away....(yea they learnt they were not in this book so...)
All the action happen in the Chalnath Expanse, a new random place in the Ultima Segmentum. Nothing really interesting about this war apart from the Cult forced to act because they see Tau as direct competition. Authors insist on the Fourth Veteran massacring human. Shadowsun is leading the war with great success but has some trouble with Emperor Faith accomplishing miracle through Priest and turning human Auxiliaries against them!
Not much to say about the fluff and as usual, my favourite part is the Echoes of Awakening, look at the next two images and see what you can make of it!

Tau Rules !!!

The greater good brings new tools and options to the Tau as :


  • A Tau Name Generator !

  • Commander Shadowsun new profile

  • Sept Tenets : allowing to create your own Sept

  • New Prototype weapons

  • More stratagems (of course ^^)

  • The Eight

  • Farsight Enclaves !

Commander Shadowsun

Shadowsun get a new model with a new XV22 Stalker Battlesuit and off course a bunch of new rules ^^

Warhammer 40000 for the greater good Echoes of Awakening

is it I or this Datasheet is super crowded? Shadowsun gets a lot more dakka with 3 extra weapons. Still, it's sad that High energy and Dispersed fusion are not the same weapons with 2 shooting profile :/ Also shield drone get a 4++ instead of a 3+

Sept Tenets

In line with the different codex that got the option, you can now build a customized Sept by choosing 2 powers from the list below. There are 10 options. Some bad, some good, one auto-include like Stabilisation Systems, Battlesuit withs this options ignore the -1 to shoot with Heavy weapons after moving.

Warhammer 40000 for the greater good Echoes of Awakening
Warhammer 40000 for the greater good Echoes of Awakening

yay more min-maxing ^^

Prototype weapons systems

Instead of giving a Signature weapon to a character you can give a Prototype Weapons Systems a unit. For example :

Warhammer 40000 for the greater good Echoes of Awakening

Off course the combination of the Tenet previously mentioned and this weapon is interesting, to say the least. But I also like this Riptide Ion Accelerator ^^

Warhammer 40000 for the greater good Echoes of Awakening

A lot of fun stuff, as you can equip whole units, with a prototype weapon.

Moaaar Stratagems

Modulated Weaponry was already leaked buy GW and it's quite possibly the most powerful stratagem in the book. But maybe Coordinated Engagement could help Crisis being played again ^^

Warhammer 40000 for the greater good Echoes of Awakening

Warhammer 40000 for the greater good Echoes of Awakening

it's funny there are so many stratagems available these days but it's always the same that are played ^^

The Eight

The biggest Datasheet in the world !!!! still at 1120 points, to be honest, I have no idea of what changed with the CA version.
Used with a super auxiliary detachment that gives -3cp and using 8th prevent you from giving any Signature System.
Bad presentation and massive datasheet really make it hard to read it unless you have very good knowledge of the Tau Empire Codex ^^

Improvement : Kayvon is reroll hit roll instead of failled roll (good for fishing 6).

Fartsight Enclave

Greater Good campaign book also includes updated and improved rules for playing Farsight Enclave. The section is short with only a few extra options.

first : All unit in the army gains Aggressive footing buy can't use more than 2 commanders per Detachment.

Warhammer 40000 for the greater good Echoes of Awakening

Second : 6 extra Stratagems in case you didn't have enough ^^
These 2 seems very good :

Warhammer 40000 for the greater good Echoes of Awakening

Conclusion

Another book that doesn't change anything...The story or setting didn't change, the additions to Empire Tau codex are fine I guess but that's it...
At least we did get a new Shadowsun model!

Hello everyone !!

The Nuremberg Toy Fair is a massive event happening this week in Nuremberg. At this occasion GW revealed new models & books for multiple games : Necromunda, Titanicus, Aeronautica

house of chains

Skies of Fire and the Taros Air War

The second boxed set for Aeronautica Imperialis is prepping for takeoff, and now we can finally show you the new models for the Imperial Navy – including the Astra Militarum – and the T’au Empire Air Caste!

Alongside Skies of Fire, there will also be a new campaign book detailing the war to retake the world of Taros from the T’au Empire.

Necromunda House of Chains

it’s time for some of Necromunda’s core gangs to step up their game with some reinforcements, and the Goliaths seem to have pushed their way to the front of the line…

Goliath gangers respect physical strength above all else, and sometimes that results in an obsession with growth and combat chems. Such is the case with the massive Stimmers – over-muscled brutes wielding massive weapons as though they’re mere playthings.

The House of Chains is a crucial expansion for all Goliath players, digging deep to explore their might-makes-right culture and offering new options for every level of play.

This new supplement details the Crusade of Iron following the Betrayal at Calth, expanding on the background for various Legions. It contains rules for the Psi-Titans of Ordo Sinister, new Knight Houses and maniples, narrative missions and campaigns taking place across an entire sub-sector or solar system. There’s a lot of content packed into this book – we’ll take a deeper look closer to its release.

PSY TITAN !!!!

Lot of good news

Psychic Awakening : Tau Getting corrupted by Chaos ?

Hello everyone !!

New fluff extract for the next PA chapter :

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/01/13/psychic-awakening-beyond-the-startide-nexusgw-homepage-post-2

I am sure we are not going to get any more precision soon but some Tau are getting corrupted? Or maybe it was auxiliaries of the fourth sphere?

What do you think ?

Warhammer 40000 : New kill Team Starter

Tags : tau space marines warhammer 40000 kill team

Small thumb megbattlereveals aug3 ktstarternew4uhcgerg

Hello everyone !!

The new box features a kill team of Space Marine Reivers (the Fangs of Ulfrich) pitted against the Fire Warriors of the T’au Empire (Advance Team Starpulse) across the amazing Sector Mechanicus terrain.

Ferocity and formidable combat skill faces off against deadly ranged weaponry and coordinated fire support – it certainly makes for an exciting dynamic!

Rules wise

If you’re already a fan of Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team, fear not – we think the rules are awesome, so haven’t changed a thing!

/Cheers.
