We had this information last weekend, that the new suit would include a female pilot option. Now we have the images to see, and you get the option for either male or female pilot for the new Ghostkeel Battlesuit coming out this weekend.


Here is where you can you see the new image. Everything else has been shown, and if you missed them you can see them at the link below.

    2. I wasnt serious peeps...I am sure she has a lovely personality though...

    3. And some big guns to prove her point... Not sure she is the perfect kind of girlfriend. ^^

    4. Well, I'm glad they kept her generically alien rather than doing the blueberry shit at least.

    1. Yeah, I'm sure /tg/'s members are in the starting blocks.

    2. I would like to see a full body female Tau just so we have an actual comparison for the two genders other than the slit shape... Like is it comparible to humans where you can see it in the hips (usually), or just a leaner build?

      Delete
    3. Yeah but she's got a vag on her head so they got their work cut out for them

      Delete
    4. Well my line of reasoning is that if Tau mechs look like mechs designed by Masamune Shirow then obviously Tau women look like women designed by Masamune Shirow.

    5. @leon REALLY!? I would never have realised!! GW always makes inappropriate models surprised by such a change.....

      Delete
    6. @Leon tau don't have noses, their olfactory organs are in the roof of their mouths and to my knowledge they can only breath through their mouths

      Delete
    7. So basically, all tau players are mouthbreaters.

      ...We already knew that ;p

      Delete
    8. They may smell through their mouths but the still can breathe and even bleed from the slit like a nose.

      Delete
    9. I can't find any sources to confirm or deny this

      Delete
    10. In the Farsight codex there is a part where He bleeds from it by being too close to the effects of a chaos gate... In the Book Broken Sword the human protagonist always refers to it as their nose, I forget where I saw the breathing part.

  3. This is a huge step forward for GW. It's an inclusive model that doesn't super sexualize a female alien. Now we need female guard and a Sisters resculpt so that they don't have those stupid impractical boob plates

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Agreed! The current Cadian kit needs an update anyway, why not add some women in there?

      Delete
    2. No way, exaggerated baroque boobplate is the cornerstone of the Sisters' aesthetic. Removing that would be like turning marine armour into HALO-esque modern looking suits.

      Female IG would be super easy though, all they'd really need is some slightly sleeker arms so as to avoid the gorilla hand syndrome and some new heads. Could be done as a upgrade sprue even.
      Then again, it's not like we're lacking in female IG proxy models form everywhere else.

      Delete
    3. all GW need do is add female heads to current cadian kit. bam female guard. reduces the need to make bewby guard, reduces sexism in gaming "ooh bewbz" and mean that people get plastic wimmenz..... :)

      Delete
    4. GW is on the politically correct bandwagon. First a black guy (bloodbound warrior) and now a woman -a non-human woman, but still a woman.

      I will have both, and I will name them "Barack" and "Hillary."

      And watch the gnashing of teeth from the blithering sycophants,

      Delete
    5. I forgot to add that Hillary is also non-human woman...

      :p

      Delete
    6. Yea, because GW never made a female model before right?

      You should make unit entries for Barrack and Hillary though. Add in Trump and Nuts as well, and make your own US election based minigame.

      Delete
    7. Must make Tau Trump. Give it a fake wig and 3verything

      Delete
    8. No, Baman, actually there are female Eldar Guardians, Banshees, Shadowsun, and all sorts of Dark Eldar vermin. Not to mention Vect's slave girls. So a faire few, actually.

      But since the black warrior a couple weeks back that garnered so much attention on this blog, and now the dialog about a second Tau female, I just thought the Obama/Clinton connection was too sweet to resist.

      Delete
    9. GW is on the PC wagon? you know an entire chapter of SMs are black right? they have scales but... hell they used to have a rainbow warriors chapter.

      Delete
    10. ^ nah they have a space marine chapter which has euro aesthetics but are painted black. also in fluff they literally are "black" as in not chocolate brown but "black" as black can be (devoid of colour/pigment) also rainbow warriors are not what you think they are, they are not ~hmmm~ but they are blue armoured marines with rainbows......just because a certain group of people associate with rainbows those rainbow marines are not associated with that ~hmmm~ group.

      two examples of non contextual "PC".

      however that said there are IG regiments whom are comprised of ethnic groups, also genders.


      all that said when i stated PC originally i mean't it in jest. ~woosh~

      Delete
    11. If they were serious about being inclusive, they'd include the average overweight glasses wearing Tau who had a lot of disposable income and few social skills, and his equally corpulent but less awkward girlfriend.

      Maybe also some kind of busybody SJW Tau that no one liked.

      Delete
  4. Dunno if anyone's seen this, but I think these are some genuine leaked pics of the Horus Heresy game (it's actually called "Great Crusade" in these pics!)

    3. Its been debunked. The image on the cover is an Android phone background.

    4. the Book is a (pretty cool) fandex, and the datacards were an event exclusive goody from FW for their Throne of Skulls event ^^

  5. So they just have Y shaped nose holes?
    Fair enough though... no complaints.
    I was half expecting fluttery eyelashes and a ponytail.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The Y shape is suggestive of a cat's nose, guess where this line of reasoning goes...

      Delete
    2. It is one small aesthetic design I do not like. My Shadowsun model wears a helmet. But I did buy some scantily clad tau women models from ebay. They are not from GW, but they are pretty bad ass and sexy for tau models. Kinda pin-up style.

      Delete
  6. where are the breasts how am i supposed to know its female if there are no breasts

    1. You could... Talk to her? =P

    2. That doesn't work in real life, why would think that would work in game?

    3. You can talk to the models in Age of Sigmar...

    4. I talk to my models. They are my precious. ...

    5. now you know why orks go on Waaagh's......they don't even have Wimmenz....and they are super xenos super green super soldiers full of green testosterone....

    6. If she talks back to you you could be in with a chance . . .

      Delete
    7. I can't talk seriously to anyone who has a camel toe, especially in their face.

      And Scuzgob, that was very insensitive. There are lots of women without breasts. Just drive through Connecticut.

    8. if she's flat chested.....then she's too young for you bro :P

      Delete
    9. @Xeno Inferno: Flat is justice!

  7. That's female?

    Erm... I can't see any difference. No wonder all those Tau dudes are into toys and guns!

    ;)

    1. Lol yup, main difference between male and female Tau is the slit shape and the body being a bit more feminine (hips and ever so slightly more slender frame). Fairly subtle from a human perspective, but from the books those who pay attention can see it in the way they move too, especially Shadowsun as her suit gives her that freedom of movement.

      Delete
    2. No wonder they're invading the Imperium. No hot babes in any of the Tau spheres....

      Delete
    3. Remember breeding outside of your caste is forbidden.

      Delete
    4. I agree these look the same to male tau lol

      Delete
    5. Its probably just a line in the WD to drive sales than a real attempt at modeling a female.

      Its for all those 14teen year olds

  8. It's funny - I had the idea of making a diorama of a battlesuit opened up and a Tau sitting inside (so opened the way it's supposed to so the pilot can get in). Looks like GW beat me to it.

  11. I'm wondering if you can actually open and close the suit or just build it one way. Doesn't look like theres a helmet on the suit if its open.

    1. If they did it right, you should be able to magnetize the suit open or closed. That what I'm hoping for.
      Even though I don't own any Tau, I'm pretty interested in painting up one of these guys.

    2. You should buy 1 of those nude chicks other companies like Brothers Grimm put out. Then do a head Transplantation & paint blue ;)

    3. No... Its brothers vinchi or something like that. Anyways. There are loads of companies that provide sexy girl minis.

    4. Bunch of female models here
      http://wargameexclusive.com/product-category/miniatures/
      lots of Tau and Female tech priests and commissars.
      Yes there is even a naked tau sniper

      On a related note, I bought some Kastellan Robot heads from that website and the quality is AMAZING!

      Delete
    5. Those models look awesome!!!

      I don't usually buy unofficial GW "rip-off" stuff but god damn those Thousand Sons parts look sexy!!! And don't even get me started on that Female Techpriest holding a skull!

      It all depends now on UK prices and shipping costs but they might be getting some of my money!

    6. Really nice website, thanks inquisitor.
      :)

    7. ~faps~ whoa those models are sexy......especially like the Greater good babes. if only GW made female models look...erm....female...then i'd buy more GW female kits.....but alas many GW kits tend to try remain PC.
