The Tau Take To The Battlefield With New KV128 Stormsurge

October 3, 2015 by brennon

The Tau are back in force and leading the charge for Warhammer 40,000 this Autumn. Games Workshop have put together the rather deadly KV128 Stormsurge Battlesuit. See what you think of this new weapon of mass destruction for The Greater Good…

Bringing Guns To Bear

The style of this Stormsurge Walker is very in keeping with the aesthetic that we’ve seen developing from Forge World for some of the bigger walkers. It is armed to the teeth with more weapons on it than armour plating I think.

The Stormsurge is manned by two crew members which makes sense considering the amount of guns it has.

The Stormsurge is armed to the teeth as you’ll see in a moment but it has been dubbed the ‘Titan-Killer’ of the Tau Empire. Do you think this will be taking down those gigantic targets with ease?

Target Sighted

In terms of weapon options it has a choice of quite a few. You have two missile pod assemblies, a pulse driver cannon, a pulse ARC cannon, two ballistic burst cannons, two airbust frag projectors and twin-linked flamers.

Gun Options #1

What will you be giving the Stormsurge when it comes to weapon options? Or, will you be tweaking the kit to make it magnetised and therefore adaptive to every situation.

Gun Options #2

I know a lot of different people who have taken up the Tau Empire cause this year and they will be very happy with this.
