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.

I completely agree. I like some aspects of these figures, but the hyper-sexualized and, to some degree, the overly macho, models just aren't doing it for me. I am intrigued by the jetbikes though.

Anyone have pics of the bikes next to a normal firewarrior? Interested in using these as tetras since they're significantly cheaper and feel more like what a reconnaissance vehicle should be (no offense to the bobsled lovers! :D). Just have to figure out what to do with those rider legs.

Some kinda drones.

Some kinda car. floaty drones can be removed and you can slot in some vanilla drones if you want.

I kinda like the floaty drones.

The Dolphin is very nice! Even better: not a scantily clad Tau in sight :D

Totally agree, great updates. Not to sure on the transport, I do like the drone units with it though. Man, need to save some coin and hit these guys up!

This guy is not giving a care about GW IP lawyers, is he?

Those super stealth suits look pretty awesome. The pathfinder has some cool design elements as well, though I am not sure what the rules benefit of the visible navel and camel toe should be.

Those miniatures would be infinitely better if the females wouldn't be half naked all the time imo.

I understand it's cool&fun for pin-up esque models as he started out with some of those but by now he has a lot that are obviously meant to be used ingame as well and there they simply don't fit.

The "Stealth Suits" look like a dead ringer for the XV46 Vanguard Void Suits. Since no models were ever made for them, these would work well.

I agree. I can't figure out why no one at GW, FW, or anyone else makes a set of straight-up female firewarriors? Really, actual non-curvy, non-bikini wearing female firewarriors. Is that too much to ask for?

Based on the 7th Ed Codex, there is no visual difference between male and female firewarriors from the neck down.

At least once they are armoured up.
