Default Terrible truth about those nice tau models

Hey hey, as you can imagine this isn't good news. The tau pathfinders, and the fantastic farsight model, and the shaper....they looked great, right?

Unfortunately, I asked when they might be released at games day and one of the designers told me that they were essentially showcases of the trainee designers work - therefore, they probably won't be on general release at all, if they are then it will be for ages. Having said that, the shaper will probably be available as a direct sales special or whatever.

Damn, is all i can say.

What's really that different between pathfinders and normal firwarriors (except the head)? You can't just make some carbine carrying firewarriors and call it a day?

Well, if you saw those pathfinders at GD....they were brilliant....nothing i could convert lol. Besides i like the pathfinder heads, they look good. Or maybe i'm just lazy :

Yeah, sure, anyone could technically convert anything they need for their army, but I don't see why Space Marines should be the only ones to get all the plastic kits. I don't care how easy it'd be to convert fire warriors into pathfinders (in my opinion it isn't, really, not if you want them to look "right"), just because we can doesn't mean we don't deserve a kit for them.

There's a lot of differences, too, not just the head. But in either case, I could live without plastic pathfinders if it meant getting new battlesuits, but apparently that's not gonna happen, either. That Farsight looked awesome, I would seriously replace every suit in my army to get ones that looked like that.

They are in Elle's picture thread. GW brought a few of them to GWUK to taunt us with, apparently.
