Default XV89 CRISIS BATTLESUIT : Speculation on tactical usage?

I'm really interested in this unit, seeing as how I don't think the current crisis suits are worth using for most purposes. Something about a 60 point figure with a 3 BS rubs me the wrong way.

Anyways - what will you guys do with the new suits?

It sounds like the XV81 can mount a smart missile system, and the XV84 can use a markerlight - which on a HQ might be useful. From the description of the XV89, it just looks like a 2+ save.

I disagree. A heavy weapon on a Crisis Suit? No thanks. I'll take my Tetras please.

We are not sure how the heavy weapon is going to work yet in terms of firing rules. The suits do have jetpacks, so they may write something weird in.

A) This is concerning Tau units, so it's not ridiculous to have in the Tau section.

B) It seems like you guys would rather just post to say something is in the wrong section, rather than help the thread along. Good job.

C) If the markerlight is cheap, you don't necessarily have to fire it each turn. Why do you automatically assume that you would be firing it when you need to move? I've noticed this board suffers from group-think a lot.

then why post here :.

and you put "any Rumours abound?" in the title ......... hence it realistically should be in the rumours forum if your asking for rumours.
