    I was just zipping through the forgeworld site today when I spotted the nice air caste models...

    Now have any of you here ever considered using these model as part of a game?
    What characteristics would you use for them?

    If any of the mods find it absolutely wrong for me put a link to the site...so be it just lock this post if you wanna...at least i then know what I can't do...

    Check the models Forgeworld

    I'm not too sure about any charicteristics, but my friends got the Tau Codex. Look near the froont, and it says about the different castes. (is the air one pilots and stuff? I know Earth is the Builders, Fire is the \Warriors, and Water the Polititians?)
    Merssage back on this...? :blink:

    The air caste models are suposed to be piolets that ejected from a Barracuda or Tiger Shark. They can eject if you buy a escape pod for the flyers.
    It works like the crew escape mechanism for IG.

    Yeah I'm fully aware of that.
    What I mean is what though have you had on using them in a game.
    They'd be perfect for a rescue mission right?
    I mean just the look of them...
    Or think of them as the ground crew at some tau landingzone that's under attack, and they desperately have to defend themselves...

    I have had fun buying the models and making the five castes for my Tau so I can use them as people who are in danger and need rescuing. We have some developed missions like he has to kill off as many of my running folks as possible while troops come on and try to help them escape. Kinda like what you see in the book but they can be convereted very easily and they are great models too.

    Your civilian character models sound cool. To tell you teh trueth I was thinking about doing the same sort of thing, and have even gon as far as getting an air cast ground crew. Any chance of a pic of your models for inspiration?

    What you mean you got models from the earth, air and water caste as civilians running away?

    That sounds just awsome!
    I'm dying to see some pics of that!

    I highly doubt they will ever come out with Tau Manta in regular size, the thing is just to big! Im happy just gazing at the tigershark in wonder!

    Shaselmudd- how did you make them look different then reg. troops, did you buy the air caste from forgeworld?
