Tau Piranhas

March 21, 2009

Three Tau Piranhas just arrived in the post. I've never fielded Tau Piranhas before, so they should be an interesting addition to my army. Tau Piranhas have one thing going for them and that's armour 11. As a result Tau Piranhas are that bit tougher than other skimmers and immune to the majority of Strength 4 basic weapons as well. They can Zoom 24" as well.

I'm really looking forward to trying them out and it will be interesting to see how James deals with fast, melta gun armed units similar to his own.

It's just 1 week until the Carnage tournament now, so today and tomorrow I will be painting solidly. So by Monday morning I should be reporting on how everything is painted, varnished and ready to roll. Now to get in the shower, bung on a film and paint like my life depended on it!

PS: I will post up my 1750pts army list soon.

Hey, good luck! I have used piranhas with some good results. They are very good tank hunters, I usually take them with 2 seeker missles ( I know costly ) but they can hide behind terrain and still kill most Side armor and then buzz out to kill tanks with meltas/fusion or contest an objective at the last moment.

I love those models - Guardman as I am, I'm thinking of buying one to build and paint.

Nice work!
