The SunShark dilema

By TheGravemind

So I've been looking over the new Tau models on the GW website since they have been put up on pre-order. Mostly looking at sprues and 360 views coming up with conversion ideas and magnetizing options. Looking at the new flier, I noticed something, and I fear if it is true. It looks like the ion rifles the interceptor drones have, and the ion rifles on the quad gun might be the same bit. This would really make it hard to magnetize and make so either model could be used from one set.

Another thing I noticed was the end piece to the bomber's bomb generator seems to have multiple options. This could mean an upgrade or some form of options for the type of bombs? I guess we'll have to wait a week to find out. I can't wait till the bitz sites get these suckers up, because while I don't like the new suits, I'm loving the weaponry and drones!

  1. I'm right there too. When I was converting my tau flyer, I was thinking to myself that I really shouldn't build this as a bomber until I know if they are any good or not.

    My gut instinct is that bomber will be the better choice. I see most of the AA coming from broadsides and skyrays. Of course that's without having seen any actual rules yet.

    I've sworn of buying actual GW figs for now, but man that Farsight is tempting.
