    New Sentinel Options

    Lately I've been hanging around the Tau forums (I'm looking at a Tau Army) and I have noticed some cool toys that their Battlesuits have. I also began to wonder "Why can't we have those? They seem simple enough..." Surely the Tech Magi have created similar items?

    So, I think that these two are the best for us.

    Firstly, the Targeting Array. This gives +1BS. No explanation required.

    Secondly, the Target Lock. This allows Tau Battlesuits to fire at a different target than the rest of their squad if they pass a leadership test. This would be handy for those who have many sentinels, or 2 hellhounds and a few sentinels.

    Thoughts?????

    ......Go Play Tau.........

    lol JK, they are great ideas and all, but eldar war walkers dont get abilities either..........neither do dreadnoughts

    basically im saying that battlesuits are more like characters than walkers, walkers should not have acess to more things than vehicles, so sorry to say it but I dont believe we should get access to special things like that, it doesn't suit guard, its too elite.

    personally i want sentinels to have their armor upgraded by 1(at least on the front, or maybe the front and the side) and i want sentinels to have acess to more heavy weapon types(heavybolter? Multimelta? Plasma Cannon?) well maybe a plasma cannon might be overkill(3 sentinel squadron killing 15 marines in 1 turn.........or even a whole squad of terminators..............) personally I wish a sentinel could take pintle weapons.

    Well... some people have the opinion that sentinels are expensive for a vehicle that have paper thin armor. I agree to some degree, so I keep them cheap with zero upgrades.

    But... if I can get some cheap upgrades, maybe sharpshoters in the Command Platton. Is more credible having a squadron of veteran pilots than special targeting systems. Hmm... I cant imagine the sentinels with pintle weapons, the pilot have the hands already busy with keping the walker standing. Maybe a Heavy Stubber in a coaxial mount with the Heavy Weapon.
