Forge World really have no stop button it seems with another addition to their range of awesome larger scale miniatures for Warhammer 40,000. See what you think of the Tau XV109 Y’Vahra Battlesuit!

This rather bulky looking battlesuit comes with ‘a triple barrelled phased-plasma flamer capable of vaporising even hardened ceramite, and a massive EMP discharge cannon designed to incapacitate enemy war engines‘ to quote Forge World which all sounds very deadly indeed.

Some more information on the Suit…

“The Y’vahra battlesuit originates with the same Earth caste engineer as the R’varna, Fio’O Ke’lshan Sho’Aun, infamous for his resistance to the will of the Ethereal Council as much as his genius at weapons design. The Y’vahra represents a disturbing paradigm shift in the tactics of the pragmatic Ke’lshan Sept, in whom long years under near constant attack by alien forces has bred a stubborn pragmatism and siege mentality. The new XV109 is clearly a design intended to carry the fighting to the enemies of the Ke’lshan, perhaps marking a new stage of expansion on the Tau Empire’s neglected eastern border.”

Quite the awesome looking piece of kit and if you fancy splashing out a little extra for your Tau army then this could well be your guilty pleasure. Experimental rules for this deadly suit can be found on the link at the top of this piece.
