On May 21st and 22nd of this year, the Alamo GT took place in San Antonio, Texas, and something unprecedented happened. Tau won the GT! There were some really cool-looking armies present, noticeably several very large models (several Lords of War, FW Superheavies, etc). But, I'm not counting it as a win for the codex or the army (despite the fact that it clearly did). Why?

Man, oh man, what a ride! Very recently Tau was the center point of conversation in the 40k community thanks to the latest ITC FAQ (as I discuss here). Then that post happened to get linked to a Dakka thread where 20 pages later people are still whining about how OP Tau are and are being extremely childish about the whole thing. But hey, that's the internet! This isn't another post about that ITC ruling but rather about generalship, practice, and other things I talked about here. So let's dive in; are Tau really overpowered? Should we all call it quits because they can't be beat?

The ITC polls regarding the Tau Coordinated Firepower rule in the Hunter Contingent detachment are in. With only a 3% difference between the yeas and nays, the guys over at Frontline Gaming (the ones in charge of the ITC rulings) decided to rule with the majority and ban the sharing of special rules (codex or core rules) granted by the Rules As Written which I covered in my last post here. In a not-surprising sweeping majority people also showed they have little understanding of the English language by ruling against how Target Locks work (and other interactions including Gargantuan Creatures, etc) in conjunction with the Coordinated Firepower rule. So, what does this mean for YOU? Well the answer is not so simple...
