Freedom gundam style cannons from Gundam Seed would be cool. I'll think of more afterwards.

I'd like to see more use of rail technology, only not as weapons. You could shoot a ship from the surface using a railgun and it would go faster than sound, making up for their microscopic abilities in the warp. Also, maybe something similar to drop pods (but larger and more restricted) that are dropped from a Manta and can carry any unit, and more than 1 unit, as long as it is under 30 models. That way I'd be able to shoot those Kroot right behind the enemy.

None can step before them, they are the first, proud in their strength and jealous of their renown.

I'd expect it locked... it is vague to the level of pointless.

Too vague frosty.. Did you intend to discuss the workings of existing Tau tech.? Or speculate over what people want/would like to see?

What would be really, really cool would be a little toaster oven that fits in your backpack. Not a microwave tho, I hate those things.

But yeah, you could be a bit clearer.

What a waste of a thread.

In urban combat, the Tau can deploy a existing drone type. The toaster drone, it has no BS or WS but it makes toast, make a leadership test to stop and have some toast when in CC with the drone. I has some jam with it too! You loose any attacks you have.

Sorry to good to pass up.
