The Tau Finally Get a Titan Battlesuit

tau meme walpaper

If you love Tau and you love everything mecha, you HAVE to see this new ‘Titan Class’  Battlesuit right now!

Forge World just lifted the covers off the new Tau KX-139 Ta’unar Battle Suit and it’s reportedly as big as a titan!

Tau KX-139 Ta’unar Was a great looking Tau suit on display by the awesomely talented Will Hayes today.

Is absolutely huge (Cerastus size but stockier).

Now we did a scale mock up of it based on the waist burst cannons compared to existing models in the range, and look how they matched up. Be sure to keep in mind that this could be perhaps bigger if those burst canons are computer designed and slimmer than the existing ones.

    So we have a Tau Titan with 3 (S:D direct or 2 x Apoc blast reroll scatter) main weapons (AP:1 Direct – Ap:3 Apoc Blast) 120″) Standard, 6 Ion cannons (S:8 AP:3 60″), 12 (S:6 AP:4 36″ Independent Long barrel burst cannons), 8 (S:7 AP:4 36″ independent Missile pods) (Combo long barrel and missile pods per side) Gun Walker with Jet Pack capabilities (12″ – 24″ move). Probably T:9, 3+ armour save, 3+ Invul or 2+ with tech, 9 wounds, Night vision with Skyfire and interceptor. Probably around 800 pt base + upgrades. I want one please.

      Too bad its BS will be 4. lol

      • What you want it to have all those guns and BS5? 😛

        • Erik J

          More Marker lights!

      • Bobbx

        Not likely. Even the Riptide is only BS3.

    • OrkiePancakes

      There is no jet pack, those missiles look like riptide smart misses, those burst cannons don’t look long barreled. Anyways coming from the man himself in an interview with Will Hayes, the creator of the beast, he said there is no jet pack, the weapons on the back are indeed a rail gun varient of sorts with Strength D, it has 3 pilots along for multiple targeting possibilities. Not much more than that as he said rules are in the works and no actual rules have been discussed other than the ones he stated in the interview, I believe you can find it on BOLS.

    If I get one, will have to modify the guns on top – looks like a 7 year old watching too much macross put them up there – “more guns!!”.
    Don’t really need a new tau super heavy, just need better rules for they ones they have (the tigershark is gorgeous – just has terrible rules/points).

    Hopefully this thing will be balanced in what it is, and not to pricy dollars wise. here is hoping.

    • Andrew Shaeffer

      Agreed, it could have 2 guns on top and the gun arms. And some missiles and it would be ok it seems that they went waaay over the top with it…

      • OrkiePancakes

        I believe there was an interview with Will Hayes, the Dr. Frankenstein to this monster, and he said there will be varients, modular parts like titans, he mentioned large missile racks and the likes.

    Feels like a MekBoy joined the greater good and said “MORE DAKKA!”
