    XV07 Rapid assault battlesuits

    Pts/mdl WS BS S T W I A Ld Sv
    Shas’ui 25pts 2 3 4 3 1 2 2 8 3+
    Shas’vre 25pts 2 3 4 3 1 3 2 8 3+


    Team: A team consists of 3-6 battlesuits

    Equipment: XV07 battlesuit

    Character: One shas’ui may be designated as team leader at +5pts. They may then select items from the tau armoury. A shas’ui team leader can be upgraded to shas’vre at +5pts.

    SPECIAL RULES
    High powered jet packs: The XV07 battlesuit may move up to 12? in the movement phase and may always move up to 6? in the assault phase

    Bonded: The team may be bonded by the Ta’lissera at a cost of +10pts for the whole team. They will not carry a bonding knife but will have a knife design painted onto their battlesuits.

    XV07 BATTLESUIT HARD POINT OPTIONS
    One weapons system may be chosen for each battle suit
    Flamer +6pts
    Burst cannon +10pts
    Plasma rifle* +16pts
    Fusion blaster +12pts

    *The XV07 battlesuits do NOT count as stationary when using rapid-fire weaponry

    Well waddya think? I felt i wanted to do this for 2 reaons

    1) We need more battlesuits
    2)We need more fast attack (Well we need more of EVERYTHING but hey...)

    I'd imagine them to look simlar to stealth suits but instead of having jet packs i see them having a manga inspired set of jet wing thingies... You know what i mean ^_^

    I really like the idea, great flankers to help our mobility. You're right we do need more of everything.

    I think i balanced them pretty well, The only change i&#39;d think to make is making them all choose the same weapon mebbe, to stop having and uber unit, Thats not to say that 6 Fusion guns isn&#39;t NASTY ^_^

    (Edit: Sorry forgot to mention, they&#39;re fast attack, but you knew that didn&#39;t you ^_^)

    Fun idea guys. Other than the movement, they are pretty much like stealth with different weapon options. The extra movement is a big thing though. I would definitely call it fast attack.
