Default Shadowsun up on Advanced Orders

Shadowsun is up. I think that just leaves the Stealth Suits?

I've seen it on Oz (http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=21275.0), along with some other things like the Skyray and Battleforce.

And yes, I believe that just leaves the XV25 Stealthsuits.

I was looking at the US, but nevermind, that proves it.

Is anyone gonna be getting her? I think I am gonna pass since I can field a Shaso for less points. Plus I am getting the Space Pope just because of how cool Aun'Va looks. He is on pre-order to be released on the 27th of April here in the US.

I am getting her so I can field a 19-Stealthsuit army.

Technically you can have an army maxed out with 70 stealthed models.. (Shadowsun, 3 maxed squads of stealthsuits all with 2 drones each, and max sniper drone teams)

Very tempting - though I think I'll be getting the Skyray first.

No space pope for me, but I will get shadowsun so I can field a crisis-free tau army. Not that I always will. But her leadership bubble is larger than the leadership bubble of a shas'o AND it applies to everything, not just targeting priority.

So she can jump forward and nuke tranports This gives the occupants the option to disembark in front and accept 2 turns of tau shooting before they can even move in exchange for one turn of shooting at shadowsun before she slips out of sight...or bail out behind, having that much farther to walk to tau lines under fire, and losing the chance to shoot at shadowsun...but saving themselves the pain of two free shooting phases for the tau. Meanwhile, she falls back to tau lines to provide leadership when the assault force gets close, or slips off in another direction to hunt another vehicle. But the beauty is that she gets to hit these enemy transports from the front and present the occupants with a lose/lose situation...without exposing herself to fire from the rest of the enemy force, due to the stealth field.

No way in hell I'd buy her. Fusion blasters.
They gave her Fusion Blasters.
And denied her IC status.
