    Huh, I guess Fire Warrior squads are now 5-10? I always liked how the older rules/fluff paid respect to the idea that a four-fingered, two-handed species would use base 8 counting (although I suppose Battlesuit numbering abandoned that a bit ago. And yes, I'm not satisfied with "Translation issues" as an excuse :P).

    Still, I recall a thread complaining that having a box of ten models serve a 6-12 unit represented GW trying to gouge customers, so I guess there's no pleasing everyone.

    Fire Warrior Strike Squads are still max 12.
    Those are Breachers on the pic.

    Cool, thanks! Kinda funny that the Tau are varying up their squad size like that, but no big deal.

    Seeing that the dual box only has 10 men, I doubt they're still up to 12 strong.

    By buying two boxes to make 12, which means you'll need to buy another box to add 2 models to the second box, another to add 4 models to the third box and another add infinity to get squads of 12.

    So I highly doubt they're 12 anymore.

    Six boxes gets you five squads.

    Math is hard.

    If you're not prepared to drop 300 bucks on 5 squads, you're probably not the kind of customer GW wants...

    12 and 10 have 60 as their lowest common denominator mate. If they'd moved it down to 10 maximum, existing Tau players would be complaining instead. Can't please everyone!
