I've been stewing a bit more on what to do with my armies.
My Tau army is better off. I can probably make it work with Marine or Ork Allies. Even then though I've still got to spend some cash. I need another squad of fire warriors, a dakka jet, some nobz, and an aegis line. That's over a 100 bucks.
My space marines at least need to get some Storm Talons. Stupid flyers.
I'm stuck until GW expands on units with skyfire. If and When Tau and Eldar AA and fliers drop, it makes things a lot different. I don't want to spend $100 now for some units that are only going to get a month or two of play. I really hate GW's 1 week product announcement policy. All it does is keep me from spending money on their stuff.
The other choice is I can play with sub-par lists for a few months. It sucks to be a xenos player. It really sucks to be a Xenos player with codexes 2 editions out of date.
The thing is: I kind of like 6th edition. Except that the edition is forcing me down the path of having to buy fliers for all my armies. Why can't I have units with g-d skyfire?
