Default XV89 Crisis Battlesuit from Forgeworld

[size=20pt]HOT![/size]

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/cgi-loca...dTAU_2dD_2d003

To quote the website:

Quote:
Built for Tau Commanders, the XV89 features heavier then normal armour for a Crisis Battlesuit. Fully poseable complete resin and plastic kit including a choice of weapons. Models designed by Daren Parrwood
More pictures are available here

Full background and rules for these Battlesuits will be in the forthcoming Imperial Armour Volume 3: The Taros Campaign.

Price: 18.00
Anyone have any idea what they mean by heavier? Could we possibly see a 2+ armor save on our Commanders or perhaps 5 Toughness? This model looks TIGHT! The rules havn't come out yet (I think) though.

Anyone else interested?

One of the quotes mentions better armor. Either a 2+ save or an invulnerable save built in.

Rumor has it that the new suits will have an addon that allows you to fire heavy weapons on the move.

I'm right behind you!

Never look back at what you have done. If you do you might not see the tree in front of you.

I'm not sure what you asked, but a markerlight is also heavy. One of the suits sports that in the picture. I don't think rail rifles will be options.

Railguns, SMS, and Markerlights are also heavy.

We wont know anything official rule wise, until Imperial Armour 3: The Taros Campaign hit shelves.

And, dont expect everyone to buy one....

Its gonna be expensive. Like arround $100, like the other main IA books.

Why so pricey? Well, Im guessing, it will be full of all the new Tau vehicle rules to date, plus detailed pictures of every Tau unit, as well as plenty of flavor text. Kind of like the other Imperial Armour books. They are eye candy, as well as play candy.

Pricey... Yes.

Im going to wait to see what all is in it before I buy it.

If its going to be 300 pages, but only 100 pages of Tau stuff, then Im not buying it.

But, if its all Tau, then, I can justify it...
