Oooohhhh plenty of dakka, I like it, but generally I like tau models a lot, if I ever go xeno, I would go tau

It looks to me like they got the gun placement a little off, the shoulder gun should be mounted to the front of the waist for a proper D weapon :grin:

Nasty looking piece to add to the Tau's ever growing arsenal. That massive gun seems awfully short range at least (looks like the D only has a 10" range...which I guess is well above average I can't stop..) but that double-tap rule when you forgo your movement is pretty ripe. Don't want to move with your Tau super-model? Get to shoot twice! I guess this is what GW intends when they try to balance their models (was that too much? :laugh:).

You need to stop now. I'm calling your mommy.

Personally I think it's meh. Beyond meh. It's got too many varying ranges, it has missile launchers that fire Fire Warriors shooting their pulse rifles, a crappy destroyer weapon, and it's only 3++.

For 400 you can give it a Shield Generator, park it in the back, use the giant ordinance gun and fire repeatedly with it. That's the only use I see for it, personally. just... meh.

Thankfully for my troops, the ordnance blast isn't barrage-type.

Would be awesome looking without the stupid, stuck-on gun.

Also, still not sure on the point of this particular model release.

Xabre 09-28-15 06:16 PM

The point? Not sure what you mean. Tau is getting their new codex next month.

I like the concept, but I really think it needs some arms. I know if I ever bought one I'd have to try and transplant arms onto it somehow.
