i made a bit of a concept model for the heavy battledrone thingy, and even thought of how it could fit into the wh universe, the tau noticed that because of their lack of armoured vehicles they were losing to many tau lives (for all you people who are unfarmiliar of WH40k, the Tau race is quite small compared to the other races and has a high respect for the lives of thier soldiers, they try to have as few as possible casulities and do not believe in things like "final stands") Anyway the tau have created a drone that can act as a sheild for their troops, though its armour is still very weak, and it is not superioir to the hammerhead this new drone is stil helpful because enemies tend to concentrate their fire on the tanks and not on the infintry. The tank is faster than the hammerhead (its pretty damn fast) and is armed with two mini railguns, these guns come no where near the power of the hammerhead or broadside but still pack a punch.

the tau tried to use as little materials possible and only a basic design because these tanks act like walls (they are meant to be shot at) all they did was made a larger battle drone and stuck it onto a base capable of supporting the recoil of the cannons.

The tanks name is THAD this stands for tactical heavy assault drone NOTE: THIS IS ONLY A CONCEPT IT IS NO WHERE NEAR DONE< TELL ME WHAT U WANT CHANGED/IMPROVED

the bulb thing is the actual battle drone, it is the AI, (read my whole last post) the tank is a battle drone with specialized weapons atatched to a base so that it can move better and be able to control the blast of the shots

ok maybe i cant post a link because my internet is going really slow and i cant be bothered to wait for it, just go on this website and look at the tau bits (pyro will know what i mean) and look for heavy gun drone, how about modelling that.

It was the intention of the game designers at GW for the Tau tanks to fall midway between Eldar Vehicles and Imperial ones. On that basis the Tau tanks should probably be similar to the Battlemaster with slightly more armour and a more powerful weapon. Besides they can have drones like the USA. I think the main concern with Tau should be the battlesuits. :beer: :beer: :beer: :sleep:
