My first impression upon seeing Shadowsun was that her reaction upon seeing Genestealers was “4 arms uh? Hey, I want two more! - But miss we... - Just do it!”

I'd like to think the arms act independently if needed (like warmachine's rear arm in the vid)  i.e. shadowsun could pick up a wounded TA'U warrior in her arms and run with them whilst her "upper arms" keep pointing and shooting at targets chosen by her H.U.D ... ,perhaps GW just modelled her with her arms in sync with the upper ones for aesthetic reasons or just a lazy designer ermm.gif ...

anyways no matter what people think ...we have a "NEW" Plastic model  and every TA'U Faction (army) can take her wub.gif ....

The death guard sounded so menacing in this until their weapons fire was described as sounding "wet".


That notwithstanding I'm looking forward to the narrative of this book moreso than any other PA so far.

 

To be fair "wet" covers a whole range of sounds.  To me that could be the bark of an ordinary boltgun followed by a rather off-putting splattering sound as whatever pus or fluid is excreted by the Marine or weapon itself dribbles out of the barrel in the wake of the bolt round.  Sometimes if someone wants something to be horrific they need to nudge it in that direction teehee.gif sick.gif

can someone fill me in on which expansion ended up on the Baal side of Nhilus? IF PA 5 is a 3 faction book of T'au, DG and GSC, could one section be T'au vs DG nearish Ultramar and the other T'au vs GSC's involved with Hive Fllet Leviathan?

You've wrecked my hopes and dreams. Thanks for nothing, pal.

I saw it posted on Facebook.

Im sorry for that busted hope, damn internet moves fast with things.

Honestly the reality cant be that far off though. ( it could be that harlequins dont get any coverage anymore and are considered part of book 1 for example)

Because for any other combinations you can make sense off, you are left off with combinations that do not. (for example deathwatch vs daemons, harlequins vs chaos knights are extremely unlikely matchups.)

However the rumors of greater good being a 3way battle featuring 2 antagonists kind of destroys the 9 books for 9 antagonists theory wich my entire list is based on.

Yeah, the 4th Sphere got pulled into the warp when the Cicatrix Maledictum erupted, and they were scattered across the galaxy. A majority of them ended up near where the Startide Nexus terminates in Imperium Nihilus, but others went elsewhere including the group near Baal itself.

There's no mention of them being scattered through the galaxy. The group "near Baal" is the group at the Startide Nexus. It's in the red scar.

I will not start chaos corrupted tau auxiliaries. I will not start chaos corrupted tau auxiliaries. I will not start chaos corrupted tau auxiliaries.

Really though cool short, very 40k. As others have said I really like that you can use tau as an audience surrogate to the horrors of the universe, it’s really effective here.

I'm looking forward to seeing what background material they come up with, as the backstory for my Traitor Guard involves them being formerly under the sway of the Tau. 
As you said, the Tau really bring an effective canvas to remind of why the 40k universe is such an awful place. Tolerance of minorities like witches and mutants can have some (un)expected consequences!

But I'm a bit confused about the new Shadowsun model? At first I though book 5 would have some sort of 'hybrid' theme, with the postergirl being a Tau with a nose and 4 arms, but now it doesn't seem like that. She just has a nose, and 2 extra arms (of questionable utility)?

Still, kinda neat model, though I don't expect to see the half-helm on any table anywhere. :P
