Welcome to Librarium Online!
I think it's quite obvious that GW has been looking at japanese mechanical design (from manga and anime) when constructing the Tau army. And when you look at the Tau codex and see the battlesuit in the background it seems to be a real giant, but it's only a suit. I want the super heavy walker - a real mecha! Like a Hammerhead with legs or something. :rolleyes:
That would be really brutal, dont know if they will do it though
Of course it's brutal, but, I mean why not? Take the Ork super heavy Battle Fortress for example - why couldn't Tau have a really big war walker?
I saw something really crazy on ebay along those lines for the tau. It was massive
I want a gestal suit, like the "Devastator" in the Transformers
now THATS a mech...
as i said in the "we need a new battle suit"-thread:
...What I would like to see though, is some kind of multi-legged walker. Like the spider tank from Ghost In the Shell. Tau military philosophy is all about mobility, and a spider tanks legs makes it able to move easily through dense forests (if not very quickly, but wth). Flamers or burst cannons would look nice, dunno about the usefulness, depends on point cost of course. Ion cannon would be kind of sweet. Or whatever. And if they wanna stick with the sea-creature-theme in vehicle names, why not name it... Mega Shrimp of Death, Doom, Destruction and Complete and Utter Ninja-Bonanza Madness of Horror and Decay (or just "Crab")?
Have you seen those Sabol Battalion transports? They have a gaming gallery with some cool pictures...
It looks like they took the 28mm resin Battletech model from Armorcast and used a Devilfish body for the Torso. So sweet!

Yeah! That's what I want! :wub:I read that in the suit-thread and I am very much familiar with the tank in question. It is a mech alright, but I want the humanoid type. But I totally agree with you - I think tau should have more big vehicles....What I would like to see though, is some kind of multi-legged walker. Like the spider tank from Ghost In the Shell.
You guys are power greedy. Wait!! Aren't we all, hehehe.
