Default That odd piece that comes with the stealth team...

Can anyone tell me what that odd piece that comes with the stealth team is supposed to be? The oddly shaped object that just seems to sit on the ground.

No one knows for sure what it is. Most people use it as an objective marker, or as a vehicle accessoire, or whatever.

BTW, there are about ten threads like this already; this would be an excellent oportunity to use the search function of the boards...

Cheers,

Indeed, Search is your friend...

As I posted in this thread, according to UK White Dwarf #319, it's an "Objective Marker."

I wasn't really sure what to search for. "stealth" or "stealth team" pulls up a lot of results related to the units themselves, and "thingny" seemed vague ;D

Yes indeed the search for such a thread would be hard.

I seem convinced that the pointy thingy is the part used to model a markerlight meant for the stealth commander but I have yet to hear of someone else who shares that view.

I remember the last such thread quite clearly(the names have been replaced to protect the [mostly] innocent):

newtotau: What's that stealth thingey

tauvet: nobody knows, use the search

tauvet2: Maybe an objective, use the search button, there's like a billion topics like this

newtotau: If I don't know what it's called, how can I search for it?

History repeats itself; we have come full circle.

It's similar to the one that comes with the old Loyalist termies. (I'm not sure if they still come with it, I don't collect them anymore) I like to place it down before they deepstrike, and pretend that they are using it as a beacon, although, I just do that for fun :P

I suppose you could use it as a markerlight token...

Maybe we should just write a short paragraph and have it added to the "important topics" thread or somemat. Then we could just refer the person to the article.

Speaking of weird sprues stuff. My buddy got a Cloudstrike Boxed set, and one of the sprues had some weird stuff on there...Like something that looks suspiciously Tauish. Anyone know?
