A mother-ship that is...
So not a huge post this time, just updating you on a new battlesuit variant coming to a Forgeworld near you, and only £70 (that's $113 in real money).
I love the model already, and from appearances alone, it compounds the bad-assery suggested by the riptide and R'Alai. I saw this on Faeit 212 and ATT a couple weeks back, and thought I'd share.
It's name is R'Varna, and it is classified as an XV-107 (the Riptide is an XV-104). This is obviously not the nautical themed name common to classes of Tau battlesuits in the 40k universe. That combined with the R' honorific/prefix common to Forgeworld battlesuit character names, strongly suggests that it is also a character like R'Myr or R'Alai.
Sorry guys, both for the brevity and timeliness of the post. But with school starting back and being knee-deep in football practice every night, I haven't had much time to do anything outside of school.
I'm sucking man, and I really need to get a game in. My fire warriors are getting fat.
So I am dialing this one in. I am already in love with the model, and can't wait for it to become available for order. In the meantime here are some interesting related links I found with tidbits and commentary.
Though this may be my shortest post ever, I hope you enjoy the reads. Oh, and if someone finds the actual Forgeworld newsletter announcing this guy can you send me the link? Thanks in advance.
I play Tau.
