Re: 3D print extra parts: Stormsurge, Riptide, Piranha, ...

:) Nice design. The big problem I have with it is that the GW concept of the burst cannon is flawed. The barrels go from wide to smal, if you would prolong the lines of the barrels they would toch. That would be the sweet spot to kill some one. If the target is farther away the bullets from the top...

Re: 3D print extra parts: Stormsurge, Riptide, Piranha, ...

man Kael'yn. That cowl variant I am loving more than the current Burst cannon design. it still shows that it's a battlesuit burst cannon yet not exposing the barrels to being destroyed by even a stubber. guessing the slots on it are venting ports so the barrels won't heat up? Actually, I reused the...

Re: 3D print extra parts: Stormsurge, Riptide, Piranha, ...

If Burst Cannons will ever become viable on Crisis Suits I'll for sure gonna order some from you. A Quad Burst Cannon Commander would look pretty badass. :D That's why I remade a BC Hazard from a CascadeFusion one : not enough dakka ! Here the alternate BC cowl I am working on (left on the pic): ht...

@ Ironsky Now you have solution if you need to do more BC :) . @MikeMurdoch Thanks. Custom head are something I am working on (someone asked stealth helmet for crisis). Any design you think that would be cool could be shown. Hands for crisis were asked before. Since they could be found in Commander ...

Take your time, there is no way I can get to any hobby time at the moment, so if you put it at the very back of the line that might work best for both of us! No pb. I just wanted you to know that I had not forgotten your idea. That makes sense, mine are for personal use. I haven't got round to doin...

@MODELGLUE Thanks. (And I still have some design from you that I intent to made once I will have a Crisis done in 3D) @AgentArrow Thanks. I ebayed some stealth BC once to made a TwinBC Hazard from my Cascade Fusion, but these kind of bits are hard/costy to found. @Ironsky Thanks. Actually, when I se...

Re: 3D print extra parts: Stormsurge, Riptide, Piranha, ...

Hello fellow Tau players. I started to build some crisis suits yesterday but I prefer the stealth barrels to the gatling style Burst Cannon. So I made some stealth covers for BC (new crisis-size, but must probably be compatible with other BC) to be 3D printed: https://images1.sw-cdn.net/product/pict...

Re: 3D print extra parts: Stormsurge, Riptide, Piranha, ...

Thanks. Actually the riptide sized hand are a little difficult to assemble with the tiny fingers. So creating a crisis full customizable hand will be a pain. The commander plastic kit already provide different hands that are fine. Unless you need more hand poses, I don't see the need to do crisis ha...

Re: 3D print extra parts: Stormsurge, Riptide, Piranha, ...

Thanks. The Sentinel firepoint is not really cheap in 28mm: more than $300 in frosted and even using the maximum tricks (multiparts to keep the overall volume low, providing only the outer shell and not the central pivot, floor plate, guns, ...) the price will be too much in the better material. A t...

Re: Modeling Tau Females - a discussion

Personally I enjoy the fact that T'au troops can be either gender without it really needing any adaptions to the models, its also great that GW have started including female heads in the Fire Warrior kits, as well as the ghostkeel pilot. Basing the T'au fluff of not keeping families together in a w...

Re: *Feedback Request*

If this is a first painted model, it's a very good start. Nice skin effect, a with little too saturated green but maybe because I am prefer shades of grey. Leather coat seems too flat. A darker wash and some higlights could be done here. Beak color is also too saturated and highlights are strange (m...

Re: SLA printed drones & CIB

Nice, but i don't see the point of printing drones (maybe because I am a veteran collector who has 20-ish old gun drones on their small sprues) The CIB is nice, but it maybe miss the "cyclic" without a rotary part. As it stands it is more like a triple barrel shotgun than a minigun. The mo...

Re: 3D print extra parts: Stormsurge, Riptide, Piranha, ...

Piranha cover is a staple demand from people (the Forgeworld TX42 is nice but still too much unarmored in my taste). The luggage case (that I've done from a conversion shown on our board) didn't needed a piranha model to be made. I plan to do one in the future, once I will have a 3D model of the pir...

Re: Tau 'Caution' colors

If they use "danger" stripes it must be two contrasted colors (dark and bright). So probably black could be retained (or other dark colors).

To help visualize the "danger stripe" idea, you could keep one of the two colors. Black, with maybe light green or blue.

Re: Crisis of faith. Red blood?

Color does have few relations with the metal atom in there: Green Chlorophyl has a magnesium inside and magnesium salts and compound are usually colorless for example.
