OMG, they have horribly mangled the coolness of the Tau stealthsuits. They should be ashamed of releasing these new suits as they are the most horrible thing I have ever seen!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! What do you think of 'em? LINK BELOW!
on a more pleasant note, plastic bits mean more conversion potential!! ;-)
Besides, the stealth suits look beefier - could prove fun for auxilary increased armor, the sniper drones mean more weapons mods. This could be fun! Now that GW is releasing the Skyray and Pirahna, hopefully the prices wont be as bad as FW's resin models! Think positive!
I like the improved stats and even though I collecting SM I am probably gonna get some more tau as they were my original army. I would just try to get the gun bits for the new commander as I already have an old commander/crisis suit. I still hate them. One thing I don't get............ it does not matter what kind of technology you have, a 15 ft metal construct running towards you isn't gonna be very stealthy (thump....thump...thump... BLAM!!!!)
No wonder... My friend has been playing them as T4. Not that it made a difference when they got charged by a 10 man assualt squad. Filthy aliens.
Something that big can be very stealthy. The F-117 Stealth bomber isn't all that small and it manages to show up as the size of a small bird on radar. Also, consider the fact that Stealthsuits move with the help of cloaking technology and a stealth jet pack to keep it quiet, giving it a presence like the wind.
I love them. I'm operating from a different perspective, however. I'm not a Tau player lamenting the loss of the elegant XV-15. I'm not a Marine player staring down a new, rather tough-looking option. Noooo. I play the abominations who only see wonderful new parts for their Tactical Dreadnought armor. Mmm...Think of the conversions...
I think Orison squad is going to be built very soon after these come out.
