Default Forgeworld xv battlesuits and co.

In an earlier topic, it was said that the new XV81, 84 and 89 commander battlesuits have the same stats and weapons as the older ones.

What I would like to know is: is that true, and the site(http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/acatalog...RE_TAU_15.html) says that the XV81 has a smart missile system, the XV84 has a spine-mounted target lock, and the XV89 is supposed to be more heavily armoured. Now how can it be the same?

I`m ordering one, but I`m not sure of the stats, and I can`t wait for imperial armour volume 3 to come out and tell me

Please help.

PS: there are more than just new battlesuits available...

You're going to have to wait b/c, AFAIK, the only place those rules will appear will be in the new IA.

damn, the old suits look really weak compared to the forgeworld ones

my commander deserves to look good.

But, something else, does anyone know when they will appear in europe(the netherlands/germany/france)?

The way I see it, the Forgeworld suits looks fantastic. I'd love to replace all my suits with them, but I can't afford that hefty price tag (That's around $360 to do that, since forgeworld's suits are double the price of a GW suit).

They will no doubt have increased abilities, better weapons, or just more weapons, better armour or better stats overall. Maybe even more wounds, etc. But remember, this will all come at Forgeworlds points.. which are generally going to be hefty. If you think a 65 point suit is expensive, these boys will no doubt be quite expensive, compared to this for sure.

I'd love to aquire a single model, just for the weapon bitz and to be able to have a commander that is apart from the other than by colours or poses. Just a better suit in general to show off his stats and rank.

Love the models, hate the price.
