In case you're wondering: http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Warhammer-4
The Tau Heavy Support slot is already crowded with juicy choices, but since I have it I feel like I ought to use it.
I am a huge fan of the Sky Ray, Hammerhead and XV-88s, so I’m not sure what I could want to drop in favour of the Barracuda.
The Sky Ray gives me some extra marker lights and those wonderful seeker missiles.
The Hammerhead obviously gives us a relatively mobile railgun that can also blast away pesky Eldar/IG with pie plates.
XV-88s we all know and love, but they aren’t exactly very mobile…
The Barracuda gives us 3 S7 AP3 shots, 6 S5 AP5 shots, 2 S7 AP4 shots and can be upgraded with 4 seeker missiles.
I suspect I’ll give it a go instead of my sky ray soon, but what do you guys think?
The rules are in IA3: The Taros Campaign.
And yes, I know that this edition of 40k was perhaps not designed with flyer rules in mind, but they are here so I want to use it...
