Shas'La'Kais

Post#1 » Jan 30 2018 04:22

I recently got myself a shas'la'kais miniature.

How would one go about using him?
Should I make my own rules for him or could he fit into one of the HQ choices that is currently available?
Shas'O'Kais has his own ruleset in 1d4chan

But not Shas'La'Kais

I would use him either as fireblade or marksman, but if you have sn idea how to use him uniquely I would say go for your own rules

By my own rules I mean probably steal cadre fireblade's stats and replace volley fire with 1d4 chan's monat rule. I would also let him take pathfinder weapons, since he does so in the game.
Although he doesn't have a shoulder shield, so I'm not sure if he should have a 4+ armor save or 5+.

To field Kais legally you could use him as a Fireblade or Marksman, or as Darkstrider. Those would all be fun options!

Really? Mind posting a pic? Because I have a Kais model that can be kitbashed from an old XV8 and some XV25s. Wouldn't mind seeing a comparison.

I think it's the old Shas'la Kais mini from Fire Warrior, right? I don't think there ever was a mini from Dawn of War.

Here's Kais from a recent thread:

Oooooh, I've seen that one yeah. I kind of want it for completion sake, but I really don't like the sculpt so I'm not really invested in putting in the effort to find one. I especially hate that segmented collar.

Yes, antique models are always legal. You could use him as a Pathfinder, Pathfinder Shas'ui, or as Darkstrider, whichever would still be WYSIWYG.

My dear Tau'fann it is always good to do a search before starting a thread. Here is an entire thread dedicated to Kais Miniatures, and from last month no less!

Kais would just have the normal stats as standard firewarrior, but if he were with a Pathfinder unit the give him recon armour, and if her were with a strike team, then he'd be in combat armour.

But when Kais becomes the mont'au daemon - ioi'kek'e, well there aren't rules for a Tau berserker yet.

But I'm working on it! :crafty:
