umm WOW. one of the best wargear in the game. Non loyal means for me it will be going into my space marine deck.

Surprise via the Ambush Platform, or even free with Shadowsun's ability, it's just great all around. Putting it on a SM Librarian that is behind a meat shield will wreck.

Incredibly strong.  Auto include x 3!

OP restrict.

Almost OP in a space marine deck with Libarian...

why does this exist

i imagine it exists because it works well with the core Tau deck, which looking at the cards, consists of units with fairly low attack values. Not to mention that attachment control is kinda the main thing with Tau atm (*ahem* Shadowsun's ability) however i do agree that this could seem rather OP when splashed in a Spare Marine deck.

This attachment can't be attached to a warlord right?

Correct. A warlord unit is not an army unit (and is also not a token unit, to round out the three different types of units).

Best Attachment in the game so far.

A great attachment, works wonders on virtually any unit: makes pirates and traders useful in combat, turns Wraithguards in warlord slayers, makes ranged unit dangerous: applications are limitless.

With Shadowsun it has a tactical potential too.


This performs inconsistantly against different opponents, but the vaule is good.
