News: Forgeworld Newsletter #224

Hi all, another FW newsletter arrives. This time the Tau are getting some new firepower in the form of a sleek new battlesuit.

"Hi There,
Here at Forge World our Christmas rush has already begun, so we thought it would be a good time to remind you about getting your orders to us in time for the big day. We also have another great new model available for release as well, the Tau XV-9 Close Support Armour for Warhammer 40,000.

XV-9 `Hazard` Close Support Armour
An original battlesuit design intended to act as a powerful counter-attack unit and mobile weapons platform, this new addition to the Tau arsenal has been created in response to heavy losses incurred during the bloodiest phases of the Third Sphere Expansion. The XV-9 is one of the most complex and advanced combat systems the Tau have ever put into wide production, requiring a veteran`s skills to master in combat in service of the Greater Good.

Previewed in limited qualities at Games Day UK, the model is a full resin kit designed by Daren Parrwood. The XV-9 is larger than a standard crisis suit as you can see Here and looks sleek and deadly. This first version comes equipped with two twin-linked burst cannon.

The Tau XV-9 is available to Now for immediate release.

Rules for the Tau XV-9 will be found in the forthcoming Imperial Armour Apocalypse II, and you can find experimental rules on our website Here."
