None - there's no such vehicle or unit, unless you're refering to one of GreyDeath's superb conversions, in which case all stats would simply be house rules.

Check out just plain old Tauonline and go to the convertion part of the site. He's there under crayfish.

Welcome to the forums!

I am not sure if I have ever seen rules for the Crayfish. There might be something in House Rules, but the Vehicle Design Rules are probably your best bet if you want to make and use one.

i think it would actually be best to give him drone stats and a big gun for the fun of it...well minus the Jetpack of course.

I'd go for something like this:

Heavy Support
1 - 3 Drones per unit.
40 points per drone
WS:2 / BS: 3 / S: 3 / T: 3 / W: 1 / I: 3 / A: 2 / Ld: 7 / Sv: 4+
The Crayfish is equipped with a targeting array* and railgun from the tau armory, it does not come equipped with a jetpack or count as jump infantry.
*This bonus has already been added to it's profile

Special Rules:
Targetting Inteligance Relay: Crayfish drones do not need to take target priority tests as per regular units. It is assumed that these drones will carry out the orders of their commander reguardless of the cost to their battlefield functionality, due to modifications to their drone core processors.


Feel free to verbaly slap me if you think this is foolish or shouldn't have been posted.
