Does FW sell resin parts separately? Like plasma rifles?

I actually put that thing together. It's a bother. I rank this as the hardest tau model I put together so far. Especially messing with the ammo fed belt.

I know where Direstrike is at. Forget the belt feeds, just having plastic RG that will glue in place.....what a fantasy

I think the BS with SMS looks better, or at least more intimidating :-\. For PR toting BSs I'll stick with the regular GW mini.

I wished they came out with this model sooner. I'm gonna use plasma rifles with my teamleader. I guess I'll get me one of these puppies.

The ammo makes it look cooler though. But I thought about applying glue the belt on the main model first would probably be easier. Also gonna try using green stuff to hold the railgun together.

Those plasma rifles look atrocious like that. As far as I'm concerned, Plasma rifles only good good mounted in the "arm" position. Prefer the shoulder Missile Pods.

I agree. It would be good to see a shot of them fitted underneath the railguns.

It looks 'Ok'. It's rather Predator-esque with the shoulder mounted plasma weapon (that said, there's TWO and there's railguns as well ). I prefer the SMS one though, and the body section on this seems to be rather plain.
