What about the heavier armour though? It already has 2+. I assume because there is no shield generator it will manifest in an invul save, say, 4+?
Both riptides heads are crap, but this one is even crappier. They made the original one to small and this one doesn't have a head it has a sensor block, someone at GW likes Pacific Rim. If this ones head was smaller and had a neck I would like it,it looks like the tau made this specifically so the pilot had to turn the entire thing just to see if someone was coming from the side.

Got gunz?
FUCK YEA!


I like it, the question for me is what is "heavier armour" for this. Must mean better IV save by default, right?

It's a stealth suit head assembly. Maybe it'll get stealth. I don't dislike the head, just to buck the trend.

Lol... oh, Forge World. I wonder which one of their design team went, "You know what we should do? Once every Tau player has had a chance to buy a Riptide or two for their armies, we should release our own version that's much cooler looking, and comes with -two- guns instead of one. And let's only make it a tiny bit more expensive than a regular Riptide model, while we're at it. Somebody pass me my troll face."

Whilst I'm not a fan of the head and think the guns have too much kibble on them it does look pretty cool

If they do this to the riptide, what are they going to do to the Wraithknight?

I would tolerate it if it was a giant stealth suit, but they said it's a heavier version of a riptide not stealthier.

Heavier armor could be It Will Not Die or Feel No Pain.

I personally hope the guns can throw out a ton of shots. Heavy 20 or something. I always liked the idea of a single weapon throwing an insane amount of dice rather than a few blasts.

I have all of you guys to post up everything in them. ;)

this has been forge worlds MO for years have you not noticed?

But on another note, maybe we will see more Dark Eldar? (I doubt it as we get ignored so much its saddening)
