Default My Ninja'O


This is my Ninja'O I made from a extra XV8 I got off an eBay purchase (Supposed to get 3x XV8s got 4 instead ).

I could have added more highlights and detail but I just needed a model I can get out onto the table. Maybe in the future I will add some Highlights and Details. The Base needs some work too, That will be done in more detail when I get onto the Highlights and Detailing. Possibly get rid of a few mold lines I have just noticed in the pics.

For those of you who don't know what a Ninja'O(/'El) is: XV8 Shas'o (or Shas'El) w/ Plasma Rifle, Shield Generator, Vectored retro-thrusters, Iridium Armour, Stim Injectors - Cost = 155pts (or 130pts 'El)
Its basic Aim is to annoy and slowly wipe out squads like devastator squads. It can move, shoot, assault then retreat in the defenders assault turn to do the cycle over again.

A ninja'o/el should have a positional relay if I'm not mistaken. They are the foundation to the Ninja Tau army as he is the one who directs the units that are in reserve.

"Ninja" O/El is a much older term than the new Hybrid offshoot tactical approach named "Ninja" Tau.

There is a new one?

I suppose this is a Mk.1 Ninja'O in that case. I thought that the Ninja tau tactic used a plain XV8 commander with a Positional Relay.

The "original" Ninja'O was a 4th edition combat build.
You'd generally shoot, run in and hopefully be out before the little stuff swamped you.

Ninja Tau now refers to a style of play in which an El/O is given a Positional Relay and used to spring traps and feints on the opponent, usually by manipulating the reserves rolls.

And thus, the small Tau history lesson has been finished.

In that case all I need to do is take out the Needle and put some lenses and sensors on the Shield Drone to make it look like a hand held positional relay.

Why? ???

I thought I was making it clear that Ninja'O/El's were very much different from Ninja Tau.

Just if I wanted to alter it to dabble in the Ninja Tau Tactic, thats all. It works well in my mechanised army at the moment. The whole shield/needle assembly can come off the arm, so it shouldn't be too much of a bother.

Ah, okay. That's a good notion to keep in mind.

Versatility is one thing we still can do okay with.
