Default XV38 Battlesuit

Hi.

I drew this today, still thinking of a name that doesn't scream 'cheese!'.

I blinged it up a little on Paint (gems, battle damage).

It is designed for close quarter fights.



What do you think?

It looks very like an XV8 but with a tabard - which does fit the Tau feel quite well. What rules would you create for such a battlesuit?

I'm not sure. I was thinking with the shield with target lock that it could point it around corners without exposing itself and see through the camera.

I imagine it is slightly smaller than the XV8, but larger than the XV25. Sort of a light crisis (Str 4).

Dunno really.

I can see it being used in buildings, with the size and seeing round corners aspect. But definitely not giving it a Stealth generator, I prefer the shield thing, and I like Tau as they are with only one Stealth unit.

Ok. I suppose it could be there, but there is an oppotunitie for fluff and rules here, so it is sort of best here I think.

Any ideas for fluff, I'm thinking it was developed for Medusa V.
