Welcome to Librarium Online!
The new stealth suits. They are either loved or hated. Personally, I think that having them in plastic, and twice the size is great. Its just that MASSIVE head I can't see past. Anyone else think they're a bit ugly? Or have you already ordered six boxes !
How did you already order six boxes o.o I thought they don't come out until august?
Anyways, I think they are pretty awesome. I like both the old and new. The new provides a heavier look, and being plastic makes it even more great for posing =D.
The new ones aren't to my taste, I can see how they fit in more with the fluff etc but the older ones look cooler.
It is hard to get past the "they don't look stealthy, they are way to big" as most people assume stealth means being small, sneaky (probably to much metal gear solid) but thats not what makes them stealthy.
Regardless the new ones look horrible, I think they look more static than the old ones- which is not a good thing.
I like the new uns better than the old XV15 reasons:
- Bigger, easier to paint
- Battlesuit support options
- Fusion blasters

Thinking of rules for La'Kais
I am not personally a Tau player (I play 'Nids) but i think the new ones look WAY better. They look like they are in a suit that can actually carry stealth machinery (It cant be that a stealth pack thingie can fit in such a small suit as the XV15) Also they get more of a fierce look toshow they actually have power.

To me, the old models never looked all that stealthy (except for the colour scheme). In my view, being stealthy was not about being small and un-noticed, but the Tau's excellent technology to create invisibility fields (it was in one of the WD soon after Codex Tau was released - Not Empires). So I reckon that the new models actually look more stealthy, because now it looks like you could fit a stealth field generator in the suit (I imagine that such an item would need to be large and require lots of power)

I like that the new stealths come in plastic now. I also like that they looks more like suits now. But I liked the old look way better, I find the new suits too bulky and big to be stealthy.
So IF I buy them I'll convert them all so they are being a bit slimmer and more stealthy.
But I don't think that I have to buy any since I already have more than 18 stealth suits and I really don't think that I'm going to use anymore than that.
I personally prefer the older ones but a mix between the bulky body and the older one is a conversion idea I want to try.....maybe when the plastics come the bulky thing can be left out easily and the body converted slightly to look like the older ones.

exactly it will be much easier to convert them now when they comes in plastic and I do believe that they good look awesome with right cutting, cluing and modeling
