nice boy, daft though !
Oh FFS let me just buy and mix and match forgeworld :cray: I want a knight, with the regular knight head, a castigator bolt cannon, the chainsword from that new acheron knight and the shoulder pads from the mechanicum one...http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Events/FWeuro-openday.html
plus a new tau riptide variant plus other stuff
The Riptide Y'vahra has some form of triple barreled Plasma and from my limited Tau knowledge, an Ion weapon of some sort, although someone more knowledgeable can correct that.
Rule of cool? I'm not sure all I know is that they have a nick on the sides of the piece sticking out that looks like the same as those on a battlesuit's flamer. I prefer this one's head+body.Edit; cheers locust. Why have one barrel when 3 will do? Why didn't they have a single igniter in the middle branching out to all 3 rather than sticking them on the outside? Ah well. The R'varna is a much nicer model.
