    Tau Empire Release Info

    New updated XV-?? battlesuit / Commander-battlesuit combo kit.
    New kit is strongly based on the current Commander suit, but not identical.
    New Kit is designed for much more dynamic assembly & posing options than the current range.

    Many new Kroot models are on ice, but may be spun off into a separate release (Codex: Kroot Mercenaries)

    More interesting than Marines vs Different Marines.
    Ask not the EldarGal a question, for she will give you three answers, all of which are puns and terrifying to know. Back off man, I'm a feminist. Ia! Ia! Gloppal Snode!

    Haven't BL just re-released the Damocles story books?

    The Damocles would fit into a Stormclaw type idea, no?

    Speaking as someone who's just been doing quite a lot of conversion of the current Crisis Suit model, I will say this for them: I am never scared of making them look worse.

    The arms are terrible - monoposed and ugly. The legs are the same, only ridiculously, hilariously fragile at the ankles. Not to mention the GOOD CHILDBEARING HIPS of the dumbass ball joints. Then you've got the chest/groin pieces are so lacking in detail/definition it's untrue. They look like the old Action Force power armour from, like, 1981 or something.



    Don't get me wrong; I do like them. They're fun to convert (really fun; like I say, you can't make them look worse) and all, but anyone who thinks the current Crisis Suits don't need updating needs to compare them to literally any current kit. They're shamefully bad by modern standards.

    Go away Tau.

    You're getting the way of Eldar releases

    Heh, Hasbro had those white for Cobra in their G.I. Joe line. Had one, too. The real funny part was the fluff said they were almost as clumsy as the toy/model looked!

    But, yeah. I was really hoping they'd take time to remake the Crisis Suits for the last codex release, but I will concede that Pathfinders needed them more (official ones were metal), as did the Kroot auxiliary models.

    Part of me wishes all the kits weren't just "Moah Space Mawines" vs "Something else". Maybe when Sisters get a plastic line, maybe? Or the next IG/AM release?

    Poor Steve must be mistaken.
