Just got my starter box and have a few questions if anyone could help:
Would anyone recommend the Shield generator for my Shas'o?
If so he'd have a hard wired multi tracker - would you use the add on to show this on the suit? I think yes as even if it was hardwired then it needs sensors to multi tracker. I ask 'cause I don't want to have an 'illegal' tournament model with too many hard point items (he'd have a plasma and a missle also).
I really like the fusion blaster - I was thinking of having a suit with missle, fusion and multi-tracker - really bad idea from a gaming point of view?
I've also got a Broadside but worry what glue to use to attach the metal to the plastic - I have some plastic glue that came with my Citadel started paint set or do I need some kind of super glue - if so what type?
Thanks for your help
You can read the Tau codex on page 18 regarding hard-wired support systems. "contained within the battlesuit helmet...implanted" etc etc
So you don't have to use that add-on =D, IF its hardwired.
(better explaination about hardwired systems by T0nkaTruckDriver)
Hardwired options do NOT take up hardpoints. They are essentially brain implants that Tau veterans and commanders have had inserted into their bodies. That's why you can't hardwire a weapon for example... it's hard to implant a plasma rifle into your brain! However, because of the difficulty of the proceedure, only Team Leaders of rank Shas'ui and above can have hardwired wargear. Again, it describes all this in the Codex! So the good news is that your Shas'el is legal!
Theres a post sticked at the top of the board, written by Tonya Tau that talks about making magnetic mounts for your crisis suits and vehicles so that you can swap your weapons and parts on the fly, this should solve the problem about having too many hard point items, or wondering what weapons and support systems you should use. There are also other guides out there that talk about using magnets with your models just g00gle it =D.
The Complete Guide to Magnetic Mounting and Vehicular Conversion:
About crisis suit configurations check out the guide to Mech Tau website written by another member of this forum T0nkaTruckDriver, a really really good read =D. Talks alot about Tau and the uses for the different units. Also theres a section dedicated to the different crisis suit configurations.
On modelling and glue etc you can check out this article I googled out.
Thanks for the post.
Yeah, I did read the bit in the codex - but what I was also sorta' askin' was surely a multi tracker needs sensor ports to track everything even though the main part of the device is in the warriors brain. Plus I didn't want to have an illegal and you guys are my main source of info on such things!
I've read the magnet thing several times - it's very cool but I don't think it's for me. Even though I've rebuilt most of my house I'm not THAT confindent with a drill!! (and I don't own a pin vice or dremel) Plus being in the UK means the magnets are harder to get hold of sadly. So I think glued is the way to go for me.
Thanks for the link about glueing BTW. After spending so long waiting to get hold of my army I didn't want to ruin the broadside with the wrong glue!
