Default any photo gallery of tau wargear?

i was wondering if there is something that describes tau wargear in simple way like:

name : photo : stat : units can use it

or would it be nice idea to publish online by "tauonline" for all races ..!

;D

Posting stats would be illegal and against the forum rules of Tau Online.

At best name and photo.

Stats and who can use it, would be a breach of Copyright, thus not allowed.

Besides if you own a codex you already have all this info. And as a Tau player it is your duty to inform your opponent what the wargear do if you play a Full disclosure game.

It's not a bad idea, unfortunately or fortunately (depending on how you look at it) Tau Online err on the side of caution when it comes matter of GW Intellectual Property.

then could it be .. something like

name : photo

...
note:
when i started to read codex of tau i was completely lost [ the part that that talks about the weapons was a hard to follow for me]

moreover, is that when you see the drawing or photo while you are reading that part talking about that thing .. then you will catch it much faster than .. look here and there ..

e.g( when i was trying to find how does "EMP grenade" looks like, i used google!!!!)

which is a shame!! .. because i have 5th ed Rule book + tau codex but i can not tell what is that thing this tau is using!!!

....

i thought something like that will make it easier to people new to game...

Or just look at page 52 and 53 in your codex because that has labeled pictures of all the wargear (at least for suits). Also remember that not all wargear has a bit associated with it.

Heh, since most Tau "Wargear" is Hard-wired, it isn't necessary to show it on the model. But you do have a good point, sometimes we are required to kit-bash some of the support systems and Vehicle Armory, as we have no freaking clue what they look like.

That model you just linked is not an XV25 Stealth Generator...

That's just a random bit they threw onto the sprue because they had extra room.

The Stealth Generators are actually on the stealthsuits themselves, and are not represented by any other wargear item that can be glued anywhere.

Farsights' profile is on page 44. The sword is the "dawn blade" and its stats are on the profile page. The disk on his left arm is a shield generator, the weapon on his right arm is a plasma rifle, and that thing on his back is just a detailed paint job.
