I would take that drone bike for count-as tetras (using marker drones) if it wasn't for the armored thong on the pilot....

Great looking models otherwise.

Well, they did say there will be a properly dressed variation.

Too bad it's way too thin for a pirhana though. Already has real Tetras here.

The Farsight novel talks about women that serve as fire warriors, meaning they are
practically the same-looking as males.

I have seen these miniatures as they were sent to me by a friend, but will not order
them. The women sculpts annoy me as they represent to me what has really ruined
good mangas and animes: gratuitousness. Never mind that this setting takes place
in a near-endless war and wearing bikinis on the battlefield is a good example of
stupidity, I feel it takes down the entire look of the Tau army: sleek and professional.


Just my 2 cents :)

It's already known that female Tau look mostly the same as male Tau.
Just look at Shadowsun and we even got a female head in the Firewarrior box now. ;)

However i will get one of the skimpy dressed female Tau one day just to have a Tau pin-up esque model. I won't use it in any army list though. :D

Meh, they are fun to have. I bought them all and use them as my objective markers.

This one has really got me excited, just love the idea of a Tau Jetbike based around drones. Since you posted it I have been brainstorming what drones to put on it, because I will get a handful for the collection.

I am thinking at the rear, either a MV5 stealth drone or a shield drone
At the front either a standard gun drone or a missile drone

Maybe even some of the more obscure ones like grav-inhibitor or recon

I guess if you put a stealth drone and marker drone it could be used as a count as Tetra

What I have realised writing this, is the possibilities are endless. And I am rather excited to see a non-thong version

Some new ones on the "tau grav-bikes" from Wargames Exclusive. This time with weapons.


With Fusion Gun:

With Burst Cannon:

With Missile Pod:

With Plasma Gun:

I know, the pilot is quite...let's say specific. With some green stuff here and there, it shouldn't be difficult to make it more "GW Tau like" by covering her a bit. Otherwise, the engine is quite basically a big weapon with motors and seat.

I don't know, I'm a bit undecided on these ones. I feel the weapons are too big. I still like the single drone version better. The most important question is the role these small bikes can have, and now we have very different ones.

Maybe someone think about buying one of those? I wonder how they look with some Tau models next to them.

Wait, so you're...objectifying women? :crafty:

A little off topic, but this whole thread reminds me of this comic: http://eatatau.smackjeeves.com/comics/7 ... opyrights/

Okay this is the first model I particularly like of theirs. The pilot will get replaced though, not my cup of Pech'Caffe.

Partial to the Burst Cannon version.

Scultpor recommends using the gun bikes as a counts-as Eldar bike detachment.

The drone bike has a single, double, and triple rack version. Same "slinky aerodynamic costume" (sculptor's words) as the other pilot. Personally, I just want a set of the rear drone-racks for a forgotten project of mine.

They dropped another samurai/shogun Tau, as well, but I don't really like it.

And while we're showing stuff, here's the next Tau beefcake:

I'd like the Jetbikes MUCH more if the rider wasn't half naked. Ah well i wouldn't know for what to use them anyway since i don't plan to use allies in my Tau lists.

The beefy Tau looks pretty awesome. A shame that Stealth Suits (he carries a burst cannon after all) aren't good enough to justify such a fancy model. :D

The "beefy Tau" is also half naked. ;)

Just kidding. Pilot has still armor very similar to Fire Warriors, so she would just need some green stuff on legs and maybe arms to cover her enough for those who don't like her "aero dynamic suit". :) Her "boob plate" isn't really obvious because of the "dark eldar-ish" seat, so you don't have to change it.

It's mainly for the pleasure of having Tau jetbikes than anything else. I would certainly enjoy them with some "fan made rules" rather than a count-as - mainly playing between friends and gentlemen. :D

The sniper bike was great, but the Drone Bike is brilliant - perfect infiltration unit. Zip in, then dismount and detach with Drone support (opens up all the drone weapons systems too)

I think I'm sold on these guys for the first time.

*sigh* Oookay... Since that one pathfinder/culexus conversion turned out so popular, it seems Grim Skull has decided to have their own go at it. Here's their unique take on it.

There's even a bit of camel toe and I'm not talking tau hooves either. This hyper sexualisation (both female and male) really detracts from clever sculpting and material details.

Give me more Imperator Furiosa anyday. An amazonian archtype I can take seriously.

In the end, I much prefer the original conversion; this really is a lewd and ludicrous abstraction.

Am all for cool tau conversions and female tau models. Am not a huge fan of these overly sexy female tau models.

Have a few of there models coming, in a trade got them dirt cheap. So will see what happens with the models.

I have all four of the assassin models, am looking into making my own conversions.
