Hey, I'm [RLM]Darksteel, AKA: Emraldis! I'm an aspiring mapper for UDK, and I used to map for the UT40K development team. Space hulk and manufactorum were mine. There would have been more there but there were a few errors with the lighting engine...

you can tell these are old because those guns. if it wasn't for those guns this would just be some slightly-off eldar art, but for some reason back in the day, the art for GW's guns was always really strange...

as a fan of the high-tech races, these images perfectly demonstrate why I love the tau. :D Necrons are cool too, just second on the list, tied with Space marines.

He's not really a sniper. Tau snipers get stealth fields and use different guns. And they are drones.

often times they do. The drones against the first wave are the turrets they dropped way ahead of the firing line. Other than that, drones are more of a support unit, and the Tau treat the them as useful rather than expendable, so drones are not used as "suicide troops".

[RLM]Darksteel Jun 15 2014, 1:35pm replied:

IDK. I use them, and they work fine for me. I like the extra weapons and drones they get over fire warriors. Also, they get more markerlights than other options in general, so I can get more markerlight counters off of them. I agree that they are kind of weak now, but I don't consider them useless.

[RLM]Darksteel Jun 15 2014, 12:53am replied:

I'm not sure I'd call them useless, they are still quite useful IMO, you just have to equip them with a few shield drones. They are definitely MUCH more useful than vespids used to be.

Honestly, I find this change a good one, I think it adds more strategic depth to the placement of your turrets and generators. What if the enemies targeted your generators and turrets? (unless they already do) I think that might add more strategic elements to the game...
