Nice! ;D

In recognition of this new creation, modified Crayfish rules:

* * * * * * * Cost* Ws* Bs* S* T* W* I* A* Ld* Sv
Crayfish* *15* * * 2* * 3* 3* 3* *1* 4* 1* *7* 4+
Squad: 1-3 Crayfish may be taken as a Fast Attack choice.
Weapons: TL Pulse Carbine, Burst Cannon.
Options: TL Pulse Carbine may be replaced by a Shield Generator at +5pts, or a Missile Pod at +4pts.
The Burst Cannon may be replaced by one of the following: Crayfish Railgun at +15pts; Plasmagun at +6pts; Fusion Blaster at +4pts; Smart Missile System at +10pts.
AI: Crayfish are highly intelligent drones, more so than standard Drone units. Their Leadership is worked out as if they were a normal unit.
Crayfish Railgun: Range: 48" Str: 8 Ap: 3 Type: Heavy 1.
Jump: The Crayfish can jump about the battlefield, allowing it to move as if equipped with a Tau Jetpack.
Farewell, Kangaroo Joe, you shall not be forgotten.

The crayfish could be known as Fio'vesa as oposite to other drones because it doesn't move by jetpack but on ground.
(also it could be named Shas'vesa because it is primarily combat vehicle but it doesn't sound so good)
Also it the drones are in my opinion named Kor'vesa because it uses antigravitic propulsion so it mean something like flying helpr.

See I always thought it was Kor becuase of aircaste.
Liek they where air cast helpers.

They fly and help the tau.

But I like the fio'vesa thats cool.
I think that goes really well nice one I might have to borrow that.
Thank you.

Next on the Fio'Vesa list is my Burst Crayfish but I think I am going to add hydralic pistons to the rear arm instead of just a piece of bit holding the weapon?
I think?

But ya that should be next if a Marine project doesn't take me first.

Oh wait actually my Kodiak DIY army is next....
