I doubt it'll be that much of a threat. They will most likely be a Elite choice, and won't be able to field that many of them.

1) Less of the "!!!!!" business. One exclamation mark is more than sufficient.
2) I guarantee that a Heavy Bolter will slaughter Vespid. Three shots, two hit, 1.66 kills (rounded to two).

The only great thing about vespids is that they instant kill toughness 4. Wow, lets keep out commanders away from them......

In short from what I as a Tau player have heard is that Vespids or (stingwings) are going to have a 12" move, either an assault 2 or flamer weapon with str 2 ap 2 but it counts as str 8 for insta kill purposes. The vespids will most likely have a 5+ armor save and will be a fast attack choice from all appearances.

So in short you may be able to take them down without too much trouble, thing is you may be taken out first...

...except that you can't find two people who agree on the weapon's stats :

Oh, and most people agree that it's no longer a flamer template.

Hm....

If a 5+ armor save, Vespids could be tooken out by bolter fire and hevy bolters.

So basically you have to keep some room in between you and them. As soon as they get within 24", they'll get creamed. Just make sure you include some bolters and heavy bolters and such. You prabably don't want to get close to them. Also, using vehicles to take them down might help. A S2 weapon ain't gonna do much against a Dreadnought.

In review, just focus you anti-infantry fire on them first.

I have heard they will have small units too, so a HB Dev Squad will ruin their day...

Then again, if they can be hidden untill they are used they could be quite devastating on a single squad. But after that who knows. They are likely to be shot down.

I just saw the pics of the vespids on the UK site and I'm not sure what they are. At first I thought they were Kroot who had Tau armor on but when I looked at them closer they I knew they weren't Kroot. Are they supposed to be another ally race like the Kroot for the Tau? Does anyone know they'er backround?
