Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've been playing around with the idea of slightly modifying the Shadowsun model (both physically and rules-wise) to use it as my army commander in 1000-1500pt games. I got the idea from the upcoming Dawn of War expansion Dark Crusade. The Tau Commander looks awesome (especially with the shoulder mounted missile pods ). Does anyone know of any experimental rules that could be applied to such a thing?
Well, I don't know of any "official" experimental rules, but I believe if you search for a thread in this forum titled "New Tau Units" and "New Tau Units 2.0" there should be something (in 2.0 I believe) that is a Commander, with the option to take either a Crisis, Stealth, or Broadside Battlesuit.
I'll see if I can look it up, but you should search for it too. :yes:
Or you could just model it after the DOW commander and use the normal rules...
That way you have a cool new commander without breaking the rules
