With the mantra that ‘bigger is better’ it seems like the Tau of Warhammer 40,000 are getting some weapon upgrades for their Ta’unar Supremacy Armour System. Forge World have now added the Nexus Missile System to the list of weapons at their command…
Here’s the blurb on this particular suit…
“Equipped with an ever growing range of catastrophically destructive new and experimental weapons, Tau Supremacy armour is intended to meet a threat that the Tau Empire has not yet prepared for; the defence of worlds within their growing domain from the counter-expansion forces of other races.
Larger than any other current battlesuit, the KX139 Ta’unar Supremacy Armour was designed to eliminate the increasing numbers of enemy heavy assault elements encountered by the Tau empire, from Imperial Knights to the towering alien monstrosities of the Tyranid Hive Fleets.”
The big selling point of this particular piece however is the addition of the Nexus Missile System mentioned above.
“Mounted upon the KX139 Ta’unar Supremacy Armour, the Nexus Meteor Missile System provides Tau battlefield commanders with a swift, highly mobile and devastating response to enemy ground assault troops and armoured vehicles.
When fired in combination, its photon flashes and high explosive projectiles can not only tear through infantry ranks or vehicle armour, but any survivors of the attack will be left blinded and disoriented, making them vulnerable to other advancing Tau forces.”
A horrifying weapon that sounds like it would rip apart any formation you put it against. I feel the Guardsmen and women who see this coming their way.
What do you think of this towering creation?
