Default Solo Piranah

Someone please copy paste all the rules for the prana plz. I never bought codex, andi want the statline!
DONT REALLY! That was a joke.
On a more sereous note, how effective do you find a single fusion pirianah to be, if you've ever tried it? I'll be running 2 Railheads, and one Broadside or Sniper Drone Team. I think that this should be effective enough as far as anti tank goes, but should I maybe still run the Piranah as a 24" blazing fast distraction?
Point levels are unknown, but probably 500-1500 (casual game)

It couldn't hurt really. If you have the spare points it could be fairly useful.

but yeah. you spelled piranha differently/wrongly every time

Just a note, I didn't know the right way, so all 3 where intentional mispelings. I wasn't sure about the 1st one though, I thought it might be right.

If you did include said piranarah, how would you use it?
Assume a 1500 point Hybrid army, how would you use a Solo Fusion Pirnara?

Very speedy tank hunting, with the melts rule and the additional speed, tanks had better stay the hell away from it. This also serves another propose, in an army of that size, I'm assuming alt least a hammerhead, if not two. With the piranha, Tanks have nearly nowhere to hide. They have to choose between the speedy piranha, or the very deadly hammerhead. The fast skimmer may force you opponent to move his tanks, if you use it correctly, he'll move them where you want them to.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

Seriously, use spell-check. It's there for reason
ahem…

On topic: I use a solo fusion Pir-anh-a as a Seeker platform and tank hunter.

On that same topic... The description for seeker missiles say that you draw the firing angle (for the purposes of determining the facing armor) from the vehicle using the seeker missiles. However, since the seekers have no designated mounting point, is this drawn from anywhere on the hull of the vehicle/wherever you have the seekers displayed, or from the center of the vehicle?

I don't have a reliable source of Markers. The only way I could fit them in is if I put them on my Firewarrior Teams.

Pi-ran-ha, remember those 3 words and you should be well on your way to spelling Piranha correctly. Or you can just use the spell check button.

I'd say go for it, a piranha is a very different beast form anything else in the Tau army. It should really give your opponents a good kick in the pants.

Personally I say wysiwyg, so the point they're mounted on the vehicle.
