Question The great Tau Manta!

Yes the Titan is just the little brother, there is something bigger, nastier and more expensive! The great Tau Manta! It has a 36" wing span and is 26" from nose to rear and I'm getting one! 926 of 12kg resin carring 2 hammerheads 2 devil fish, 8 Xv suits, six drones, 48 fire warriors, 1 ethereal, and 12.5 kg is without the contents! The fire warriors are seated and so is the ethereal, but the suits and tanks and drones are game useable. And b4 you ask I'm 14 and have just got a job and will have it in 2 months time XD. From scratch 0$!! Yay and I'm getting an airbrush kit. Can any 1 with 1 post a pic and I will when I get mine!! Off forge world http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Warhamme...TAU-MANTA.html and the most awesome painting of one

If your going to spend that kind of money on warhammer get a pro painted army instead it represents a much better investment long term and you'll use it a lot more than that thing.

but if you do get one please do NOT destroy it with a HORRID paint job like that pic.

I'm not going to paint it with that style, but I don't think it's horrid... I'm going to paint it planetary colours and the bottom with space, or get a big army

The size and cost of that thing I almost wish they would just produce one that was a remote, more than enough size and space to put in the engines and controls even if you would not be able to carry troops anymore. That or at least build in compartments and a hide away carry handle so you could use it as a carry case for your Tau army...

Oh yeah, and i liked the paint job, not my preferred style but still nicely done.

Hey man, I understand how easy it is to buy models when you live at home and have a job, trust me I understand, I own 10,000 points of tau, 6,000 eldar, 3,000 Space marines, and 2,000 imperial guard, I have bought a lot of models. I regret not having the money I spent on all those models now. I need car insurance money, I don't have enough money for college or books, let alone gas to get to school. I was in your same boat 5 years ago when I was 15. There is no problem with buying models but do so in moderation and a tau manta is the oposite of moderation.
Just my thoughts.

Don't suppose your willing to part with any of that if you need money.
