Default Tau Questions.

Hey I was thinking of starting Tau, and to that end, making some nice proxies to playtest.

So,

what are the dimensions of a Tau Devilfish? length, width across the front "wings", width across rear, width across engines, please?

I don't have mine in fron of me, but, IIRC, I'd say about 4 inches wide by about 8 inches long.

It's 6 inches, nose to tail. I measured it once trying to figure out how tightly I needed to pack the fire warriors behind it to do a proper fish of fury.

Yes if you stand it on it's landing gear

If you mount it on a flying base it'd depend on which stand you used and if you have it tilted

Maybe he needed certain dimensions for a strategy to work

Oh god, I instinctively hate any strategy that revolves upon such details... there's planning, and that's all well and good, but it can go too far.
