Default "New" Tau Commanders: Sneak peak for Dark Crusade

Check it out. Info on in-store Tau commanders across the US. Some nice conversions, some that make you go "Wha????" (also Eldar, Orks and Imperials)

<Edit> Some of the conversion bits here: http://us.games-workshop.com/news/wh...iecesWD312.pdf

Thanks for that, I just saw them yesterday :P I'm particularly interested in the XV8 Commanders that use the tomb spyder body (which I have in my bitz box). A lot of interesting conversions though :P

Yea... interesting.

My take: Worthless... except the guy with the bent knees. Thats it.

I want a Tau commander box NOW!

I dunno about some of those guys... The only REALLY good model in their is the rail rifle path-finder riding the 'ox.

There are some nice models there, but none of the Tau caught my eye as much as that Ork warboss based on a defiler, great conversion!

Better than majority of the marine ones. Only one maybe 2 caught my eye there.

i dunno. Marines just don't seem like a army with allot of conversion possibilities. Feel free to prove me wrong tho
