The Vespid Stingwings are a species allied with the Tau Empire in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Here's an overview of these unique creatures:

Background: The Vespid are insectoid creatures native to the Vespidan Worlds, a region of space within the Tau Empire. They are a relatively recent addition to the Tau's list of allies, having been encountered and integrated into the empire relatively recently compared to other species.

Physical Description: Vespid Stingwings are humanoid insectoids with wings, resembling a cross between a wasp and a bipedal insect. They have sleek, chitinous exoskeletons and are capable of flight, which grants them excellent mobility on the battlefield.

Technology: One of the most notable features of the Vespid is their advanced weaponry, particularly their Neutron Blaster weapons. These weapons fire powerful blasts of energy that can pierce through armor and cause devastating damage to enemy targets.

Combat Role: Vespid Stingwings serve as highly mobile assault troops within Tau military forces. They excel at hit-and-run tactics, using their flight capabilities to quickly maneuver around the battlefield and strike vulnerable enemy targets with precision.

Integration with Tau Forces: The Vespid are allies of the Tau Empire and often fight alongside Tau Fire Warriors, Battlesuits, and other units in combat. They provide valuable close-range fire support and flanking maneuvers, complementing the Tau's longer-range firepower with their own unique abilities.

Tactical Flexibility: Vespid Stingwings are known for their agility and adaptability on the battlefield. They can quickly reposition themselves to exploit enemy weaknesses and provide support to Tau forces wherever they are needed most.

Alliance with the Tau Empire: The Vespid were initially encountered by the Tau Empire during their expansion into the Eastern Fringes of the galaxy. Recognizing their combat prowess and advanced technology, the Tau formed an alliance with the Vespid, incorporating them into their military forces.

Cultural Differences: Despite their alliance with the Tau Empire, the Vespid retain their own distinct culture and identity. They have their own societal structure and customs, which may differ from those of the Tau, but they share a common commitment to the Greater Good and the advancement of their shared goals.

This is a finely detailed resin cast kit that comes in fifteen components and with five 25mm round bases, with which to make five Vespid Stingwings.

This kit is supplied unpainted and requires assembly - we recommend using Citadel Super Glue and Citadel Paints.
