Default At43 Firetoads as Sentinels?

Has anyone seen the new AT43 models. I think some fire toads with a new camo pattern might make good sentinels for my armored company. I would have to equip them with the correct weapons but that shouldn't be too much trouble. What do you guys think?

Wow, you're just chock full of good ideas. It's a great model, although it looks more heavily armoured than a conventional Sentinel and you'd have to buy the 'armoured crew compartment' for it.

Agreed. I've just placed an order for one to see if it'll be worth building a squadron of them. It might not fit in with the clunky and mechanical Imperial Guard; it looks a bit sophisitcated for them, but we'll see.

Perhaps it's a new experimental Sentinel.

I've just remembered what this thing reminds me of: The Sectopods from UFO: Enemy Unknown, the bigass robots that accompanied Ethereals and scared the hell out of me when I first saw them.

It looks like an overgrown stealth suit, it suits the Tau more than the imperium, its too sleek to be imperial

My guard are not confined by imperial dogma. I think a few sleek modern units help them to look less antique and more able to combat the many nightmares in a hostile universe.

I was about ot order some. Tom, if you do get a couple let me know what you think.

Worlds are often cut off by warp storms for long times no? Perhaps these guys figured out the toaster wasnt controlled by the sun god.

Would go nicely with a stormie heavy army fluffing the fact your kits slightly better on average. The thing about guard is you have models varying from WW1 veterans with frikin lazer beams to the old style stormies that look more in place with a wayland yutani sign in the back of the photo.
