Default Vespid?

Just a quick open ended question. What does everyone think of the Vespid? I am thinking of adding some to combat the necrons(deny their 3+ save).

from what iv seen and have been told- they suck.
Cant deepstike and get no armor save vs a bolter. WTF is that. Maybe with +4 saves and 18range for 20 points would have been the better vaspid?

I like them allot . They can be difficult to use properly but there is nothing like melting a Marine Squad . Just remember like all Tau units Vespid will need to be supported by other units .

i havent used them on a game yet, but the mpdels themselves are ok. i had heard that the would have air bibbles and such, but they were good and fit ok. a little filing is required to fit them to the base, and you must remove the stuff between the toes or they look dumb. Be carefull, the models are VERY top heavy, i am not certain if the lead weights i will add to the base will be enough. Also the anteni are quite fragile.

If you do not like the Vespid model you could also use Necromunda Yeld Spyrer Hunters or buy some Kroot and add wings .

My main complant about the Vespid models are that they are cast one piece so the tab that goes into the slot base must be trimmed , and its hard to get the Vespid head off with out damaging the antennas.

You are obviously new here, otherwise you wouldn't have known of the existance of PAGE 2.

For on PAGE 2, there is a nice Tactica about Vespids written by Helio. Rather than ask everyone else, you can form your own opinions.

Don't be harsh, if he is new then you are being a jerk and if he is not new then you are still being a jerk.

They are meant to be a little suicidal if you ask me, taking advantage of the terrain as they gun enemies down wit their guns.

Actually, that's a very neutral way to point out to people that there's a search engine, too. Being a "jerk" usually involves calling someone a name... Move along, nothing to see here.

Vespid are great, but like anything in a Tau list, you have to know how to properly use them, and how to ideally use them.
