Default This is a celebration post

I just advance ordered the New Tau Box Set. So here's my army all in all:

1 Tau Ethereal + 1 New Tau Ethereal and Shield Drone
2 Broadsides
(1) Tau Crisis Battle Suit Commander (2) Gun Drones
(4)5 Crisis (+2 Crisis)
5 Stealth (+3 Stealth)
12 Pathfinders
(1)3 Hammerheads/Devilfish (+1 HH/DF)
(20)24 Fire Warriors + (12) Tau Fire Warriors
(4) model Tau Sniper Drone Team
24 Kroot + (16) Kroot
Kroot Shaper
(6) Vespid Stingwings
16 Gundrones
+ additional gundrones

Note: Bolded Entries are Table-ready, so I have a lot of work to do...
I'm gonna try the magnetized tweaking with my remaining hammers(so i can choose whether to go heavy transport or heavy shooting)
With my suits tho, I'll probably have a majority strictly for Fireknife.

My color scheme is going to resemble the Tau warrior by Keith Robertson and the O'shovah style for my suits, as done by Kirsten Mickelburgh.

On the premade ones, I have a fusion blaster/ missile pod mix, a plasma rifle/missile pod mix, and another plasma rifle/missile pod mix. With my new ones I'm thinking of going TW PR/ MP or TW MP/PR (1 point less expensive), or maybe magnetizing the new batch.

i think magnets are the way to go. You have two new weapons that your army can only field one of
Now I don't remeber all the stats so I may be wrong

1. str 3 ap4 assault5( the assault 5 is correct and the 18" range) also on a roll of 6 the ap becomes a 1
2. Str5 ap4 or str4 ap5 guess 18' large blast temple also don't have to roll an addional d6 due to moving.

If youre going to go magnets anyways, consider magnetizing your Broadsides as well, making them convertable to a Crisis!!! you get the Crisis model complete with each broadside kit, no reason to deny yourself 2 more Crisis suits if you may want to go that way....

Ah too bad I already made my broadsides. But now I have two very nice looking, solid Broadsides to use.

Not Blue. Maybe a tyrannid esque color scheme, my army so far is red and black (i'm gonna make some FW's red and vanilla silk colored) so perhaps a red-purple color scheme for the vespids, boltgun metal for the guns. I'll see in march.

I like the sound of your vespids, I think I'm gonna paint 'em white and a light blue (I have a snowy scheme.)
