Default XV8 gear....

okay, I vaguely remember tau weaponry being described with accompanying drawings in the codex, but what about the other stuff? multitrackers, target locks, etc? I'm sitting here in Baghdad looking at a sprue...and the weapons I can figure out just fine, it's the other stuff that has me scratching my head...is there a resource somewhere that interprets the sprue for you? I'm really disappointed not to find anything other than the drawing on the back of the box. I coulda figured out for myself how to attach the head and the legs even without the cute little tutorial on the website...help, please?

Ok, the Target Lock is the hooded sensor that looks a bit like a thinner, taller version of the suits' head.

The antenae with the big, knobed base doubles as either a Multi-Tracker or Drone Controller. <-- Edit: Typo, my bad.

The Shield Genorator is obviously the flat domed peice.

The interactive description at the bottom of the page should show you everything you need to know.*

Hope this helps!

Default Re: XV8 gear....

this could be fun:

Flamer: the burner tip gives it away

Plasma: the smooth barreley gun with the Vented Barrel Tip (flash suppresors?)

Fusion Blaster: Big Boxy over/under double barreled gun

Missile Pod.. erm.... (deleted smart alek remark)

Burst Cannon: the Gatling

Target Lock: as said the Hodded smaller than head head.

Multitracker/DRONE CONTROLLER(prev post was a typo): the Knobby pod with the Antenna

Shield Gen: the Shield

??? is that everything?

thanks, guys, I already know the weapons, and the shield generator seemed obvious, I just couldn't tell the difference between the magic 8-ball with the antenna sticking out and the second head. Also, it seemed that there was a piece missing. since the drone controller and the multi-tracker are identical looking...that solves it.
