Help with support system and xv8 atenna

Post#1 » Aug 17 2017 03:03

Hey folks new person question. As you may or may not know i just started my first tau army.

I am looking for a visual guide to identify what support systems are. I have not found any pics in my 7th ed codex. So not sure what is what.

Also do the different antenna mean anything? They appear to be different shapes.

Thanks guys.

If you mean the antenna for the Battlesuit heads they are purely cosmetic. Use them at your pleasure or to denote Shas'vres

Yeah the antenna on the head is just there because it's what T'au have on all their units. It also serves to show their rank ('la, 'ui, 'vre, 'o) so if you want to paint them fluffy they are kinda needed. :P
