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

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? ).

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

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.

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.
