  2. Wow, the stealths only come up to the Riptide's knee? I mean, I knee it was big, but wow.

  3. That will be a codex image.

    Looks like Fire Warrior infantry, XV25 Stealthsuit, XV8 Crisis Suit, XV8-05 Command Suit, XV88 Broadside suit & the XV104 Pinhe...er Riptide Zillasuit.

    1. I was thinking the 2nd to last one was the XV9 (Hazard)

    2. Nope, no Forgeworld units in the codex ;(

    3. Yup this is from the codex. The drawing around the page is the same as those in the 6th ed codexes

    4. To be fair, unless you have the codex you can't be 100% sure of that. Even the rumours only tell is with confidence that there are no foreworld models in the first model wave.

      Having said that I suspect you are going to be correct ;)

    5. Well, not the stats or an entry, no, but the head on that one certainly looks like the more triangular one of the hazard than the box the 88s have.

    6. Yeah, it's 100% absolute dead cert that there are no Forgeworld models getting moved into codices.

      Forgeworld have grown and now have the infrastructure now to keep their own units, GW no longer pilfers them for army books. I don't think anything from Necrons onward has FW units in and I don't expect that to change.

  4. Why on earth would they not do something similar to the xv15/xv25 stealth teams and at least give the new broadsides a different designation? Keeping them as xv88 means the old figures could now be considered modelling for advantage due to their significantly smaller profile and base side.

    1. Not really, they are what they are as per the BRB Pg3 base rules, it's only the most unreasonable players that would have a beef with a unit that was available a week ago just because it came on a smaller base. And those are people who you don't really lose out by not playing them. :]

    2. Already re-based my old Broadsides on 60mm bases just in case I eventually run in to that one d*ck...

      Delete
    3. It's more than that though. The old broadsides are based on crisis suit kits whereas the new one certainly appears larger?

      Delete
    4. The old Rhino kits are smaller than the current ones and that doesn't stop anyone from using them (even at tourneys, I've seen them.)

      Delete
    5. I love me an old Rhino, no way I'm replacing them and no-one has ever complained. The fact that they are smaller means you can hie them easier, but then they block less of the table and giver less cover themselves so no real advantage.

  5. Hey Natfka!

    There is something inside the April's White Dwarf pointing High Elves for next month?

    Someone told me that

  6. The bigger they get, the more they have those tiny tyrannosaur arms...

    1. Much like a tyrannosaur I feel the hands are superfluous , I doubt the riptide spends much time opening doors or picking up shiny penny's on the battlefield

      Delete
    2. Yeah, but a pair of hands are like a condom or a gun: I'd rather have one and not need it than need one and not have it. ;]

      Delete
    3. And the arms aren't really THAT small.

      :S

      Delete
    4. Don't get me wrong, I like the hands :D I'm just not sure what a suit that size is doin with them ( besides punchan gaems with tyranid/demon monstrous creatures )

      Delete
    5. the small arms I think are just because of the front view of the units. from other pics I am assuming there is quite a bit more bulk to them.

    6. Lol at #mauler# thats from aliens vs predator

    7. lol Ben, I've been saying it for a bit longer than that but good spot :D

    8. Hands on arms? Useful for reloading weapons, tearing doors off rhinos, moving debris out of the way for firewarriors, and even rude gestures at terminators!

      But seriously, hands make for more modelling conversion opportunities.

      The riptide begs the question though: How do the Tau transport it?

      Delete
  7. The Adeptus Mechanicus can do that too!! They...just completely forgot how to do it. Damnit Horus...

  9. This picture makes me so unbelievably excited, if I wasn't controlling myself I'd be bouncing up and down right now...

  10. Am I the only one who wants to know about shadowsuns ability to be used?

    ReplyDelete

    1. i seriously doubt shadowsun will be any good. her main issue is that she is carrying 2 fusion blasters which mean she has to fight at very close range where she will get assaulted. which is the opposite of how the tau play (with the exception of farsight of course). unless they give her a better weapon not to many people are going to look at her.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, always been a problem with her. Hopefully they'll give her weapon options. We'll find out soon!
      ( Time to rebase and rebuild my xv88's.)

  12. They should show how the Fire worrier pilots the suit, it still looks like the pilot can't fit in the crisis suit.

  13. Shadowsun with some XV9s on the drop is super scary. More tourneys are mainstreaming FW, so we here in Miami are using a lot of FW models currently. Hopefully she is an independent character so I can give her a nice squad.
