Default New Type Crayfish

Well I created a new type of Crayfish.

Pretty simple really.


Just take a few of these on the battle field and all your worries will be blown away.

Here is a highly classified photo of it in an assemble of other already identified Crayfish.










I give you the Seeker Crayfish.

Um, what other armaments does it have? After it launched the missle? Or does it ride along with the missle?

When I move into my house and can actually get my armies out on the tables I shure will.

Although only like 1% of my tau stuff is even painted.
Oh maybe 2% at best.....

Sad to say it I just never play anymore.
And if I do its with buddies so they dont care if my armies are painted or not.

I will prettycoon when I get that new house and my games table! ;D

I just gotta ask. Where in the heck do you get all these bits? I can only imagine that your eccentricly wealthy or that you plop down half your paycheck each week on random models. Either way your conversions are great.

Heres some rules maybe,

The crayfish support system is commenly seen on the battlefield, it's wide range of wepons and tactical flexibility make it an important part to the Greater Good

Now are these classed as vehicles or infantry?

if its a vehicle....


type F S R WS Bs S I A
Crayfish walker 9 9 7 0 4 0 1 0

Type: Walker

number: 1-3 in a squad

Weapons: The crayfish may take up to one weapon from the following list- rail rifle 25 pts, rocket launcher- 20pts, twin linked pulse carbines 15 pts

special rules:

heavy weaponry- most crayfish are equipped with heavy weapons, that are difficult to fire accuratly at even a slow pace. To represent this, the crayfish may not move and shoot if the weapon it carries is a heavy weapon.



Thats all I got.

0-2 Crayfish - 15pts

WS BS S T W I A Ld Sv
2 3 3 4 1 4 1 7 4+

Squadron: Between 3-6 drones

Equpiment: twinlinked pulse carbines, jetpack

Options: may buy a seeker missile +10pts, a plasma rifle +16pts or a missile pod for 14pts
Each drayfish in the unit must take the same weapon.

If its doesnt take any upgrades it counts as a fast attack choice. And if it does it counts as a troop choice.

Special rules.
Walker/jetpack - They crayfish can make use of either thier walker legs or the Tau jumppack each turn, but may not use them both in the same turn!
In walker mode the crayfish may move up to 9" in the movement phase, but not make any kind of move in the assaultphase.
Using the jetpack allows it to move just as a drone! However if it uses the jetpack it may not use its extra weapon as they are not built to lanch them in the air!
