Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've come to the conclusion that the plastic Piranha must not be selling good. Just look at the new Tau Megaforce, http://store.us.games-workshop.com/s...8613&GameNav=9 why else on earth would they give you THREE piranhas. I could see one or two, but THREE! :wacko:

Aye, but it could also be that to be at least decent, they need a fairly decent unit size. Just giving one in it would be somewhat pointless to that end.
ANd only two Crisis suits. Yeah, not like Crisis suits are central to a Tau army or anything.
Yeah, Gw employees kept on trying HARDCORE to get me to buy some Piranhas, too. I actually kinda like the models, though I like FW Tetras (which I own) better. But the rules just ain't up to snuff.
They really need to give them some snazzy special rule. Even better yet, you should be able to Networked Markerlights for them.
Agreed.Originally Posted by Sir_Prometheus
I think every member of staff at my local must have tried to get me to buy one of those boxes of three. XD
I guess the Pirahnas just aren't good enough... I think that the majority of Tau players could have told them that they just were not interested in Pirahnas. They just don't have that extra that's needed for a unit to be efficent, even with fusionblasters.
I know for sure i'm never getting one. They just don't cut it!
Remember remember the fifth of November... Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason... Should ever be forgot...- = Always watching = -
And is it just me, or does it seem more efficient to but a battleforce, then speratly buy some of the other stuff later, instead of wasting money on getting those 3 pirannahs?
i could see putting in one of them for some cheap AT (fusion) but 3 is ridiculous. Prometheus hit it right on, only 2 crisis suits? wtf? the old battleforce had more than that.

Definitely more cost-efficient to get a battleforce; before the revision when there was the smaller and older battleforce for $90 I bought about 3 of them to expand my army when I first started... and now I have more drones and kroot than I know what to do with o_0Originally Posted by Jakester
On the piranha note, I certainly haven't even given them a thought... just not my type of unit, and I think it seems kind of out of place among the rest of the Tau's wargear, too

I don't see how 3 is ridiculous. If they want to try and get people using them they might as well put in a decent number of them to try and make a effective unit size of them.
If I was a new player I'd rather that, then buy any extra XV8's which I beleive are cheaper than the single (And even 3pack) boxes of Piranhas.
