Default Vespid Equipment

So I started filing away mold lines on my Vespid, and so this is the first time I've had a really good close look at them. Now for those of you lucky (or rich) enough to posses some of these minis.. have a look at them.

What do you suppose that little thing hanging from their belt is? every model has one, but not in the same spot, lending to believe its some sort of equipment.... so why, do you think... does it look like a Tyranid Ripper curled up like a hand grenade??

;D Sure, I know its just equipment, like a canteen or so, but the armadillo scaling of that particular gizmo is a little different from the spikey seashell carapace of the Vespid, and a lot more, as I said, Tyranid ripper looking.....

not a truly serious post, just wondering everyone elses opinion of what maybe it could be. Personally, Id get a kick out of "Hibernating Ripper Hand Grenades".. just poke it right 'here', and for gawds sake throw it quick!! ;D
Though I walk through the valley of the swarms of the clueless, I shall fear no idiocy, for the M-STAR flagged them 12 seconds ago, and the JDAMS are already freefalling.

;DOlol. I can imagine it, the Marine seargent is like "Avenge our brothers! Chaaaarge!!" and then a Ripper hits him in the face... Oww.

Oooh. That's sig-worthy.

It is wrong always, everywhere and for everyone to believe anything upon insufficient evidence.

Vespid = Wasp
Tyranids = Bug

Allies? I think the question should be why not! I mean, "borrowing" some rippers is ok if it serves the Tau'v... oops, Emper... oops, C'ta... Hivemi... Warbo... damn, who do we follow? Cheese is our leader![size=1pt][/sarcasm][/size]

Why oh why can't Vespid take photon grenades? This would be handy as they will almost always be assaulted after they shoot.

As for what it is ... His baby, his wife told him to take him some where ... so he did >

no no no, the trick with vespids is to actually charge after you shoot. if you are lucky you will hold out in teh combat, if not, then you will run. If you can hold out, then you will run in teh opponents turn...

but you do want to run... that way you can fall back away from teh enemy... 3D6" over and past terrain before regrouping and then coming back at the enemy for a second go! this works really well once you field 8/9 models and also have an ethereal on the board!

try it out... it takes some getting used to... but once you have the knack for it, you will own!

oh, and as for the gribbly thing...

its an alien mars bar
