Re: New Battlesuits

Thank you joc-wi!!! I'm in accord with you, it has much more sense in its group with the same design, and it has been designed and thought exactly for this reason, to be coherent with this "retro" and "sci-fi/apocalyptic" beheviour. :) Thank you also to you Raverrn! It is a litt...

Re: Spider Broadside

I like the basic concept of a quadruped-style suit, but I think you'd be better off using more tau-compatible parts. You should take a look at using the waist+leg joints of broadsides and other related suits, and attaching those side-by side. I did a vaguely similar project a while back using a ript...

Re: Stormtide Project - overhauling the Stormsurge

Approved.

I'm looking forward to seeing conversions with enclosed cockpits and arms. Are you thinking of using the surge's main gun on a riptide arm?

Re: Tau Castes, and Aliens

My assumption is that if an Auxiliary Reserve Cadre is "made entirely of alien warriors" (emphasis mine), then that includes its commanders, just the commanders of a Hunter Cadre are considered part of that cadre, and given that cadres are intended to function as semi-independent units. So...

Re: Tau Castes, and Aliens

OK, so if there are Auxiliary Reserve Cadres made up entirely of aliens, then there must be Auxiliaries with ranks equivalent to a Shas'El at least. And given that Tau are considered 'more equal', I would assume that given equal rank, a Tau would command any mixed force. But in the scenario of unequ...

Re: Tau Castes, and Aliens

No Tau will serve under an alien commander. The highest military responsibility an alien would have is command of their unit and they would have no place in the chain of command for Tau of the Fire Caste. The Ethereals have a stronger and surer grasp of compliance and control this way. Even with de...

Re: Tau Castes, and Aliens

It's a pretty good question. I also have a lot of interest in Alien Auxiliaries, so I've thought about this quite a bit. If we look at the Kroot and the Vespid, it seems fairly clear that they maintain their traditional ranks and unit organization as they operate alongside the Tau Fire Caste. Kroot ...

Re: 2015 "Confusion" Challenge : Second Place Decider!

Well, that's settled. Its.. (blink blink..) a tie. :-( Urhmm.. However, Babaganoosh has offered to pass on the Ethereal should this happen, again. As his Ethereal council is quite full (lucky shas has even the Limited Edition Aun). So thank you Babaganoosh! Macknight, you have a worthy compatriot o...

Re: ATT 2015's "Confusion" Challenge : The Replacements!

Interesting; I never thought of using skaven minis for a vespid counts-as. They always seem to end up being sneaky pathfinders. I had an interesting idea about 48 hours before the entry period was over to make a squad based on tardigrades . I kinda wish I'd had that idea sooner so my entry would hav...

I'm pretty much ready to submit; models are done and photos are taken. Just need to write up my fluff and I'll be all set.

Re: [Fiction] Tales from the 31st

Tales from the 31st Out of the Frying Pan and into the Sewer Hold, there’s a couple of them in the street again. Trellig’s legs tingled in apprehension. She felt a strong urge to poke her head around the corner to see the Barghesi that Banto was talking about, but kept her eyes trained upwards, at ...

Re: ATT 2015's "Confusion" Challenge : The Replacements!

I've got my squad modeled and 90% painted, just doing touch-ups and adding small details. I think I'll have my photography done within the next couple of weeks. So no problems with the time limit here, but I also had a lot of the necessary materials and design ideas rattling around my work desk befo...

No Imperial Knights turned firewarriors? Back to the drawing board, I guess! Just kidding; I'm looking at my prototype right now. It fits quite comfortably on a small infantry base. The announcement of this challenge sent me into a modeling binge. Can't wait to finish a squad and show 'em off - this...

He dropped the corpse to the floor, with the rest. “A waste. It would have been a valuable slave.” Qialpak snapped his beak, and turned slowly to eye his...

Tales from the 31st FOUNDING DAY Shas’Ui Melen stood stiffly at a position of “parade halt”. Her whole body, head to hoof was locked in a perfectly straight line, and she held her pulse carbine at a precise angle in front of her, perfectly matching the rest of her team. It was a cold day, with a lo...
