Re: Ironsky's desert operations Cadre: Gue'la WIP5

Thanks AenarIT! (it was mainly press moulds)...

I think I'm going to go to paint without shoulder pads, get some Orlock ones when they come out and see what looks best

Re: Miond's experimentals (R'Myr)

Nice!

Good idea about the neck too, that was my only issue with the FW Crisis suits.

Awaiting more...

Re: Ironsky's desert operations Cadre: Gue'la WIP4

Thanks El ZorDacK & Zeruel ! ...One question: it seems to be not so plain the green stuff work between the folds of the hoods, I can't see in the pictures.. No it's not clear. There are some close-ups on previous pages which are a little clearer, but the heads with optics are press-moulded copie...

Re: El ZorDacK Cadre

The Crisis suits are really well posed! The weathered three look nicely rugged.

Re: Ironsky's desert operations Cadre: Gue'la WIP3

Quick update of two more. Bringing the squad up to five so far. Arms are not yet attached to aid painting. https://i.imgur.com/9cJ0jAV.jpg https://i.imgur.com/9cJ0jAV.jpg I've got another three on the table, which will be it for this squad. Hopefully on to painting soon!

Yep, apart from thumbs and trigger finger I reduce the other fingers to slivers (for a positioning guide), then re-sculpt.

Re: Ironsky's desert operations Cadre: Gue'la WIP3

Thanks n1md4 & Shas'O Darklighter!

Time has been the main problem here, apart from adding XV25 optics to some of the heads it is actually quite a simple conversion.

-Me neither, They'd look a lot better if you painted them though :)

Yep. That's much better than the original!
I never liked the static head on that suit.

Re: Are the Tau all right handed, and how do you show otherwise?

I don't think all Tau are right handed, there is one image that I know of from the 3rd Edition Codex (pages 8-9 that shows a firewarrior firing a pulse carbine left handed. I'm not sure what the technological parallels are with modern weapons, but I have it from a left handed ex-soldier that modern ...

Re: Matzilla's Snazzed Up Tau! - Supreme Threadomancy!

Very nice! Lovely little conversions throughout. I really like the Lascannon - Plasma rifles and the custom marker drones.

Keep it coming

Re: seated command suit

You could use an XV15 style jump pack? Its much more Tau than rope ladders..? The 4th edition Codex had rules for an ejection system to allow battlesuit pilots to escape badly damaged battlesuits. Pictures of a conversion for this were released by GW (I think on Conversion corner), but I sadly can't...

Re: Ironsky's desert operations Cadre: Gue'la WIP3

They are running legs, so the 'lean' was an intended part of that. I've always seen 'ui rank as more of an NCO, meaning a standard trooper load out wouldn't be unusual

Re: [WIP] Onos Alternative Models and Auxiliaries Project

Exciting stuff! The Piranha looks really good so far. Are you going to do something similar for the Hammerhead?

Looking forward to more...

Re: Ironsky's desert operations Cadre: Gue'la WIP3

Thanks Lore - The shoulder pads was more of a stylistic thing, having modelled the rest of them in otherwise breacher armour (which as far as I'm aware is still better than Guardsmen's) I'm not sure if that would work. I was thinking more of a veteran/stormtrooper parallel, which would give them acc...
