Default Crisis Battlesuit Upgrades

Hi,

I was just going through the IA3 book, and noticed the Crisis suit upgrades for Shas'o and Shas'vre. If I could afford it, could I place all three upgrades on one battlesuit?

If not, which one would you suggest? I liked the idea of the XV81 and 89, but is the 89 worth it?

Thanks,

rider_eragon

You can't put all three on one suit, as they are different patterns of suit rather than wargear upgrades. But you could probably cobble something together if you wanted to use it as a House Rule. One of them made it into the main Tau codex in the form of Iridium Armor. The other two variants got better with the introduction of Relentless.

Ah. Thanks. It sets me back a little, but points-wise it's good. I think I can work out what the Iridium Armour is... =)

Thanks again.

and it's Shas'O and Shas'El only who can take those variant...so being HQ, you could only have 2, and they cannot be of the same type since they are all 0-1.

I would say the 81 as your main HQ and your 84 as your seconday HQ would be the best combo.

Or R'ymrs suit can have those special suits as his body gaurd ;D well in IA:3 at least. SO R'ymrs, 81, and 84. But I believe those are taken as 'Vre Rather than 'El or 'O... It be insane have a squad of 3 'Os XD

I would have the 84 as a second HQ choice so he's not locked in with the first HQ choice.

3 Shas'O in one slot sounds pretty sick... But now that you've pointed it out; it does work that way! :-*

Waa? Do you mean it works as those suits being 'Vre or those suits being an 'O/'El? I get confused very easily these :P
