Forge World is now taking orders for their new Tau XV109 Y’vahra Battle Suit kit. They’ll be sent out next week.
And remember the Tau melee battlecry, “Not the face! *hides face with hands*”
From the website:
The Y’vahra battlesuit originates with the same Earth caste engineer as the R’varna, Fio’O Ke’lshan Sho’Aun, infamous for his resistance to the will of the Ethereal Council as much as his genius at weapons design. The Y’vahra represents a disturbing paradigm shift in the tactics of the pragmatic Ke’lshan Sept, in whom long years under near constant attack by alien forces has bred a stubborn pragmatism and siege mentality. The new XV109 is clearly a design intended to carry the fighting to the enemies of the Ke’lshan, perhaps marking a new stage of expansion on the Tau Empire’s neglected eastern border.
Complete multi-part resin and plastic kit designed by Blake Spence. Experimental rules for the XV109 Y’vahra can be found here. This model is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Friday 10th October.
