Did a quick search of ebay and other internet sites. 38,00 - 42,00 euros does seem to be the going price for the miniature. It was released in 2002 as a promotion of the video game "Fire Warrior", along with the Black Library novel by Simon Spurrier of the same name.

The photo you showed is the correct metal Kais miniature, just know that it's smaller than the standard Tau plastic miniatures. It being the same size as the original metal Pathfinder miniatures.

At least I know now what I'm going to do that old Pathfinder Shas'Ui figure!

Bought a Kais miniature from a hobby store that went out of business and then reopened under a new owner (around 2007). The new owner started going through inventory and discovered all kinds of rare and out of date stock, and not just miniature but collectables and comic books too.

So I found two "Kais Shas'ui" on the shelf and bought one of $10.00 US. Then I took it to the GW store in Milwaukee. I showed it to the assistant manager "Hoff" who has got me into playing Tau.

He looked at the package and started jumping up and down shouting, "It's the dude! It's the dude! The dude from the video game...Kais!"

He got so excited that I just gave him the miniature, and then went back later and bought the other one. Now my limited edition Kais miniature serves with my Pathfinders, and will be forever known as...

I actually have one of these as well- it's really an awesome little tweak on the original Pathfinder 'ui.

Prototype pathfinders look like they're wearing chainmail. That is so cool!

It's really exciting as a new player to see the evolution of our models
