1) um. I DID a forum search first.

2) I have IA3, and know the rules.

3) The question in my post was "Is anyone getting one going to get/use one of these, and if so, HOW? (considering it is half the size of most tables.) There weren't any posts that I found duplicating this question...so I'm assuming its valid... and if not, I'm sure a MODERATOR will let me know and/or shut it down. Thank you though for your good citizen vigilance.


So seriously everybody....is anyone planning on getting or using this thing? I really can't picture anyone dragging this into a GW store and pulling it out of a bag before a game....

would be nice to have... that way when that arrogant Smurfmarine player brings his thunderhawk to the table, I'd be back in five minutes with all eyes on me as I bring in the manta.

"OK, I'm flying this puppy in."

Then again I could also bludgeon my opponent with it, but that would be a waste of a good model.

Prolly the biggest aircraft forgeworld ever produced. When is it going to be released?

Personally, I think they did a great job of the upper hull, but the belly bulge is remeniscent of a female sumo-wrestler pregnant with quintuplets.

Yea the beasts belly is horrofic !!!

The upperside however should be turned in a pin up calendar lol

I love the storage of tanks in there, and playing a 500 pts battle on top of the same time lol

Cast it out of hearty plastic, change the FW deck to be more accomodating, attatch straps and metal locks to the doors, and you have yourself the best Tau Case This side of the Universe.
