Default New FW Pirahna Conversion Kit!

Since main GW nicked their vehicle design it's only fair FW come up with some new varients for it: http://www.warseer.com/forums/showth...t=31507&page=4

Personally I'm loving the twin-linked Rail-Rifle version - gona have to get me a few of them

And is that extra armour covering just decorative or might it be an upgrade cancelling out it's open-topped-ness (here's hoping!).

edited to add: just noticed - no gun drones, that's weird, but probably still worth it.

It will be a VERY long time before we see any changes to the prihannas rules however, so unless forgeworld bring out some nifty new rules - which require your opponents permission - it'll be pretty pointless other than looking pretty.

EDIT: Where are the pics then?

Most of my opponents are perfectly happy for me to use FW units and I have plenty in my army already.

My bank balance isn't going to like it though - was just about getting to stage where I was thinking I had everything I wanted for my Tau army and then they go and release more cool things - curse them

And if you follow the link and scroll slightly down the thread of the forum you should hopefully see the picture.

I think i'm either going blind or senile in my old age - at 17! I can't find the blooming picture anywhere....

Are FW actually bringing out new rules for these upgrades or is it just rumoured?

Thakns FeralPenn, just found them as you posted it, sod's law and all that!

If you take a close look you'll see that it's basically a pirhanna and a "tetra" combined together. I don't quite now where I stand on it actually...

Sadly not - those are most definitely just fusion blasters.

They are markerlights. Compare the images of markerlights and fusion blasters and you will find out that they are markerlights. Also, they are are equipped with railrifles by the look of the new pharna.

Also, it looks like a phranaha/tetra conversion now.
