Thats a link to the rules, its legal if the opponent agrees to it!
Agreed, if I am shelling out £200 on a model I am 1) wanting a hell of a lot more detail on the sculpt 2) buying something which has GW support slapped on it so I can at least take it near a GW or supported club without the "wtf is that" look from all around melooks too lumbering for the tau, not really in keeping with the rest of the army in my opinion, tau would be far more likely to have a large mecha style suit or a skimmer.Would also like far more detail for that price, its not really screaming Tau to me, i grant you FW is some expensive stuff but when you get to that price (£200) you get detail and bags of it.
Although the "ask nicely if you can use this in a game" or better known as, "ANIYCUTIAG" :biggrin: rule is still in effect, quoting the 3rd Ed. rulebook "rules" are not. Time to update your BRB and join the rest of us Fallen! :biggrin:pg 270 of the 3rd Ed. Rulebook states:
...this rulebook is not carved into tablets of stone with biblical weight and profundity. We absolutely reserve the right to change, adapt, complicate, confusticate, simplify or modify any part of these rules out of sheer devilment - and so should you! We've explored a lot of ideas in this book but it's ultimately you, the player, who knows best what you want from your wargame rules. (Andy C.)
Muahaha! a loophole exists :yahoo:
Nope. I snap on that. Not to mention that the Tau don't use Titans, as stated in Canon - they have fuck off huge great Manta or Broadside Phalanx for those duties - and both do those jobs excellently. Fuck the Failanx =(.Am I the only person who thinks that looks really.. lame?
The Design is hideous; It looks tau, but I'd have picture a Tau-Titan as a Large Battlesuit; opposed to something that looks like some awful Mordern Art. The 'Leg' joints, are so huge, It's like someone who's incredibly skinny, with really fat thighs.
I'm very shocked I'm the only one who feels this way.
Maybe It's just the position it's modelled in.
