My army is from the sept world Dal'yth, and being right between Pech, the Imperium of Man, and the Tau Empire, i think it is fitting to use large amounts of auxilleries (sp?), in a dal'yth army. I am playing with the thought of using a squad of Gue'vesa as cannon fodder, and since i have a spare ion cannon from my hammerhead, i thought i might as well make something of it. This vehicle is meant to be a converted chimera, a little something to go with my gue'vesa squad. It is made using the Tau VDR. Would you let me field it, if you were playing vs. me?
Also, how do you think i should paint it? Should i use the colourscheme of my army, or an imperial colourscheme with tau transfers, and perhaps a couple of banners (i have a banners on my shas'o, my shas'ui(s), in my FW Squads, i am planning on adding banners to my broadside and hammerhead) saying stuff like "Go back to YOUR emperor", and such?
Anyway, here's the stats:Code:Name.......Pts..Front..Side..Rear..BS Stingray...109..12......11....10....4 Type....Size....Speed...Special..........Category Normal..Normal..Normal..Targeting Array..Heavy Support Weapons: Ion Cannon (i'm going to remove the turret, and place the ion cannon a tiny bit further backwards, facing forwards) Two Pulse Rifles (instead of the hull mounted Hvy Bolter/Hvy Flamer)
Its good except wouldn't you rather a heavy bolter that a pulse rifle, or do u mean plasma rifle?
Think of it this way. If they were guardies, they would be totally Tau, or they would kill themselves. Make the Stingray Tau colored. And to the weapons. A Chimera chassis would not be able to support an Ion Cannon, unless it was heavily modified. Maybe put in some pistons or something. I like the idea of pulse rifles, only there would only be one because it is pintle mounted. How about a Rail Rifle?
Henceforth no man shall set foot upon the world, and all around shall be set sentinals to ward away unwary spacecraft. We must accept that this place is lost to us forever, and is now the eternal habitation of abomination.

I would let you play it and I think the chassis can handle an Ion Cannon. It is a reasonable creation. I think the pintle mounted rail rifle is a good idea also.
well, according to the tau vdr, i can't have a pintle mounted railrifle :/
I think hull-mounted was meant rather than pintle-mounted for the railrifle. And I thought the Gue'vesa kept their own IG weapons, so although I like the idea of this vehicle I'd like to see how you support it in fluff. I'd let you use it in a game with me too, though.
Id let you use, but id either keep the heavy bolter, as its still a human vehicle, or a burst cannon since its kindof the equivilent.
