they look really good, hopefully GW will make some rules for those, but doubt it as T'au are supposed to be a mobile army

FOR THE EMPEROR!!

Not only have you turned your back on the Emperor and stepped from His light, you have profaned His name and almost destroyed everything He has striven to build. You have perverted and twisted the path He has laid for Mankind to tread. As your own decrees have stated, there can be no mercy for such a crime, no pity for such a criminal. I renounce your lordship. You walk in the darkness and can not be allowed to live. Your sentence has been long overdue, and now it is time for you to die."

T'au don't have static weapon platforms that go with infantry - that's the job of the suits. They don't do the "garrison" thing.

They do, however have drone turrets which are air-dropped into position (and are essentially tau tarantula platforms with more weapon options) (in IA3, I believe) and available (naturally) from FW at over-inflated prices.

They look neat, even if they do not fit the standard theme of the Tau. They would be a fun thing to use, and coming up with rules would not be that hard. Good use of spare parts.

They look a tad crowded, might work better on the big 60mm bases.

Fun idea though, could always go be good for counts-as IG.

They look sweet TBH, especially with Planetstrike coming out. I'd let you use those for counts as turrets.
