Welcome to Librarium Online!
i was just checking out forge worlds elysian drop troopers and thought
"hey, wouldnt tau drop troops be cool"
one could argue the spot has already been taken up b other tau units, but i reckon there room for them
oh and by the way, goto forge world, the orca drop ship and look at more pictures of it,
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/orca.htm (copy paste to htm browser)
on the bottom picture in the gun rack the gun closest to the door... what the heck is it.. im thinking rail rifle.. but why would that be on a dropship with no pathfinders on it... interesting, maybe a tau sniper rifle.. who knows... anyone who does reply please...
You could argue the point as tau do have a dropship!
yes but its a drop ship not a drop trooper dropper, "orca drop troops"
What i meant that it was possible for tau to have drop troopers. With a drop ship, and many other flying vehicles etc. i can't see why they couldn't and wouldn't have drop trooper droppers. Unless it doesn't meet the needs of the greater good.
The weapon is a rail rifle as the orca was made up for the fire warrior game, just like the rail rifle for kai to use as a sniper rifle so forgeworld decided they liked it and made one for sale (Orca that is).
*sighs* The guy in Firewarrior is called Kais, not Kai. If you bothered to read the book you would know the correct spelling. (The book is a must read IMO)
I still say Firewarriors should have access to Rail Rifles, only reason they dont is that because marine players would bitch.
There once was a Lord named Vlad,
Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
He killed and he maimed,
He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
And the fact that he's legal makes me glad
