Spotted some new Tau stuff in the Rumour Roundup (http://www.portent.net/forums/showthread.php?t=37&page=3&pp=10).

It looks like a new Manta Missile Destoyer to me... The one tooled up for Titan killing. :eek:

Dammit, looks like I will be buying a Tau Epic army afterall...

That's a Tigershark with Rail guns replacing the Ion Cannon and Seeker missiles replacing the Drone Bay.

Looks like a Tigerfish with railguns, missiles and burst cannons.

I wouldn't hope to see a manta in a looooong time. If you go to forgeworlds website and check the epic manta out, you can see on it's extra pictures that a warhound would be able to walk around on top of it. In other words, it's huge.

Edit: Tigershark, sorry :rolleyes:

And it cost 45 quid!!

I'm quite tempted to start a Tau Epic force but the 80+ pounds required to start is seriously putting me off.

The railgun TS has been 'touted' by Tony Cotterell at FW for a few years now. With IA3 about to ship its the perfect time to introduce it ... along with all those rumours of the Tau codex being revised early in 2006 .. *ahem* ;)

Doh! I had a look at the Forge World site almost immeadiately after posting this and quickly realised my error.

It is indeed the fabled "Whiteshark" and my, doesn't it look dandy...
