Did someone ask for more GUNS?

Look at that thing. So many weapons when you try to reload it the model will look like it has exploded.

I'm just excited to get access to something that will blow the crap out of Knights but doesn't need to fly around.

I like how it still has burst cannon, for the little people. I'm not a fan of Tau having giant walkers, even the Riptide was a step in the wrong direction, but you do have to appreciate the Earth Caste's desire for appropriate dakka.

Based solely upon appearance, I'm going to guess 425 to 475 points.

It's almost Orkish. The 'Dakka is strong with this one.

Here we go: Model and rules. Tau KX139 Ta'unar Supremacy Armour | Forge World Webstore (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-US/Tau-KX139-Ta'unar-Supremacy-Armour)

Comes with some D weapon defence which is nice and a D weapon of its own which is even better.

It's a very expensive, in all manner, model. More of a plot device, which I like, as Tau doctrine now relates to moderately fixed defence positions. There is also new Riptide variant which is upgunned.

That suit is a fine model.  My only issue with it, which I think some others share with me, is the triple gun layout on the back.  It's one gun too many imo, and just looks off.  The hand cannons are fine, and the chest weapons are great.  Surprisingly practical even, as point defence weapons.  If it had only two back cannons it would be a perfect homage to the classic broadsword models.  But all in all it's still good.
