We do have FTL... Phil Kelly is just a ________ that tends to prefer ________ atop an island of iceberg lettuce topped with ________ for every meal.

Seriously the guy is torching Tau fluff every chance he gets. And will be getting a future book of ours.

The Tau have FTL, they skim the warp as per (Fantasy Flight, Specialist Games, the new BFG game, Forgeworld and 3/4ths of BL novels). Anything that says they don't doesn't understand how big space is.

Regretably, it was our codex that said so...
And Phill already wrote Farsight: Crisis OF Faith so we should prepere to burn again.

On the contrary from info that I salvaged from forge world seminar discussions, tau on the offencive side in the new IA. They invade lost forge world or something

come back and see this new web design ... plus every post still intact. Love it!!!

On another note, bloody sweet surprise. First barracuda, now the tigershark. It gives me pleasure and hope for the orca to have a return with a new design. Looking forward to this new line.

Now is it just me, or do those look like regular rail guns?

Want a glimpse on a Dronehangar :::(

They really do look disproportionate and I normally like massive railguns.

The reason the railguns look so front heavy is because it's using the same gun model as the KV139.

Can't wait to see the statline of the rail family in 8th ed.

I think it looks a bit better in the official picture. Still looks a bit too large for my tastes, but darn the rest of Tigershark is gorgeous.

It looks better there, as I thought the last one didn't have the optimal angle.

What are we expecting this to be priced at? It would make a great piece in my army instead of a sunshark. I know this technically isn't a bomber, but eh it looks close enough to ground attack I want to pick one up anyways.

The default Tau flyers do nothing for me.

For me the most interesting part is the regular Tigershark. Now with ion in the burst canon cupolas like the barracuda and twin linked becoming double the shots, the regular tiger shark becomes a big S7 platform. If they reduce the point cost a bit too, its a well armed troop transport with its 14 drones raining from the skies.

Wouldn't twin-linked rail gun's be better though? They do put out crazy single model firepower and if I'm paying points for something this expensive I want to to fight big things since it has access to that tier of firepower.

It looks like there will be all too many ways for us to get Str7 shots for far cheaper for me to justify it. Going by it's old rules at least. If they semi-port them over without balancing the two then who knows.

That would be the Barracuda.
