Default Which Tau unit would you be?

This is just a spin off of the "which space marine would you be" thread so i thought i would make one for us

I would probably choose......damn there all good

but i would choose a XV8 Crisis suit because your well armored and equipped for any situation plus you can jet pack round the battle field

If not that then a stealth suit member

I would be an XV-88 because i could sit away from major combat whilst blowing some tanks up with my Railguns I wouldn't want to be in combat if i were a fire caste member because Tau are pretty weak in combat.

yeah broadsides would be good too, and yes tau do suck in close combat that's why we got to gun everything down with our superior fire power before anything can get that close

I would be a vespid, Just because I can fly without being stuck in a big metal machine and I get a weapon which is too dangerous for other people to use

BTW, glad we finally have one of these, the marines get all the fun

I chose a broadside as i like railguns. Though i would pester the earth caste workers till i get a jump pack to go with it, and so my railguns are in my hands (think forgeworld ones).

The Forgeworld Broadsides are a lot better than GW ones- How can you aim with something that has been strapped to your back?

I would be a 'Vre Crisis team leader. Bonded, of course.

That is one of the most honourable positions in the Tau army.

Turn.

Anyways, Broadside for me too, because railguns pwn all. Although it'd have to have an SMS, just because they're cooler (& probably more effective in reality than Plasma Rifles).
