Default a really cheap way to make stealth suits

so, when i started collecting tau, i decided that i liked the whole stealth thing of the stealth suits. but i thought that in the game your opponent would easily see where your units were, even though they would be alerted to the squads movement everey turn.

I decided to use the base stands with some vegetaition and whatever else you would put on the base. And then make foot prints where the suit is standing. So in theory the model isnt there at all.

i know this is a really scabby way of not paying ús but i thought it were quite clever, its worked for me. my opponents forget that they are units because they arnt there. ^^

what do you think?!?

Doesen't sound stealthy, just not-there-y. Stealth suits are stealthy, but that doesn't mean an enemy can't shoot them close up or assault them.

The REAL cheap way to make stealth suits is this.


Mage Knight, Magestone Knight + Mechwarrior, Rifleman.

I don't know, like, $2 apiece if you buy a few in one order?

EDIT: Welcome to the 'realms, by the way.

I have to show you the "Invisible Wizard" from Golden Daemon '89... that'll be right up your street.

Awesome idea, certainly.

Linkage ?
The same sort of principle could be applied to Space Marine Scouts, 'Nid Lictors etc

same here... but i like the idea of the model not being there! i think a shadow of a stealthsuit on the base would make it a bit more obvious as the enemy would know something's there.... but if you're an ork, its invisible!

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

Actually, if your opponents forget that they're there you really should use models!
