Default Neat idea for stealth squads....

Dunno if you guys have seen the latest movie for the Dark Crusade addition to Dawn of War, but it was interesting how they handled the XV15-25 situation: They grouped 15's as the main troopers and '25s as the squadron leaders.

I thought it was an interesting idea, and since 15s are still around in my local store it seems feisable. And since there can only be one fusion for every three troopers, anyway...

Anyone else see that video or want to comment? How do you handle 15s and 25s (or would when they're released?)

I have a HUGE amount of tau and I fell in love with stealth suits so I have enough XV 15s to have 3 units of 5. Then when the new XV 25s came out, i got the limited edition battleforce, I used them as my 'vre or as a team leader, each with fusion blasters. I have also made it so 3 XV 15s have fusions also but with shawdow sun's arm instead of the normal burst cannon.

Well, somewhere in a WD, they showed how you can covert a 15 into a fusion 25 by cutting 1 of the arms an dreplacing them with a Shadowsun fusion arm.

I was also thinking and wondering if somehow I could have one counts-as for my commander. There's no saying you specificly have to have an XV8... I'd just say the stealth generator was turned off on the '25 and re-wired to power the jets or something.

Wonder if somehow I can get one of the 25's flying, also. For some reason I'm falling in love with these little suits even if I resisted initially...
