Tau objective markers

Post#1 » Dec 02 2017 05:19

My local store didn’t get their shipment of chapter approved today. Does anyone have a pic of the Tau objective markers. I was real excited to see the examples they have.

There are objective markers for different factions in CA. The ones I’ve seen are mostly spare bits I think, but I was wanting some examples. You can see under match play the objective markers. Image

Ive looked through my bits and came up with these for some. A weapon pile and a mobile shield generator. I’m working on mounting that ion cannon and using it as one. Image

Note that they were purely aesthetic.
I haven't seen the page in over a week, so bear with me.

More than a few were drones bits.

One was a sort of short tower with gubbins and a drone dome top.
One was a floating drone with unique/kitbashed hanging equipment. One I believe was a crashed drone. And one was our new fire warrior drone turret, but with sensors and wargear bits instead of weapons.

And not included in CA, but something similar that has come into fashion in my FLGS is simple tokens/bases to represent command points. And by simple, I mean a player has bases with grass and a skull or two on it.

Thanks! I also like the idea of using tokens or the like for command points. I currently use dice, but may look into something of that nature.

That gun locker is sweet!!! Looks like it’s a Ion accelerator. I just so happen to have an extra!

Odd, I can't seem to place the big, round, flat bit of tech with the Tau logo on it on your right most token. Where is it from?

It is part of the Stormsurge’s Pulse Driver Cannon. I’m calling it a shield gen.

Aaaah, that'll be why. I don't own a Stormsurge on account of thinking they look ugly as sin. If I bought one it would be a lot of work to mod it into something that looked alright.

Ditching the pile of guns for a downed Broadside Commander. Here he is as well as the ammo crates. Image
