Bensen Lim asks: “Is this the new crisis suit?”
This photo appeared on facebook earlier today and is getting a lot of scrutiny.
In particular, take a look at the torso/groin areas of the Crisis Suits:
Note the waist, the fact that the torso on the left model is assembled off center, and the arms have the standard Crisis-Suit “teensy inset hands”. Now compare this to the sprues of the current edition Crisis Suits and Commander kits below:
Current Commander: Has a waist, but it is not the same. There are also differences in the arm hands, and detailing on the front torso.
Current Crisis Suits: Note the locked no-waist combination torso groin areas.
The earlier rumors had listed new Crisis Suits that were very similar but more robust and posable as coming with the new Tau Empire release.
There were reports that these images were from the 2 year old Farsight Enclave supplemental codex. We have looked through every page of the digital version and found this:
Which is certainly the same models and the same photo, but it was cropped differently to cut out the models that showed up today on the far left. So the jury is still out as those models do look like either new models or absolutely top shelf conversions.
I think everyone in the community has an itchy trigger-finger these days regarding new 40K releases.
