The design resemblance is uncanny. I really like where these are going!

I like the design of the XV7 stratos. It looks like an attempt by the earth caste at creating an ai controlled suit (the round head is reminiscent of a drone) which seems like something the tau would do to address their low body count vs other races and attempt to field more firepower while risking fewer lives.

Your newer suit also looks very tasty.

For ShasODerpy: Thank you so much!!! Yes I know, previous style was really far from the ordinary Tau style (for my choice), but I've decided to do also something closer to origin aesthetic! About the pose I think it will be similar to the actual pose, I like his dinamic, really cinematic pose :P maybe a little bit rotated, it depends on the arm, a sort of cannon or a blade!

For modelglue: Thank you very much modelglue!!! I tried to be closer to the Ghostkeel as much as possible :D

For KuroRyu: Thank you so much!!! I'm really happy you like my XV7 :)

Now, it is time of pictures! I've completed the suit chest, here the photos:

Small WIP

The realization of the Vibro Sword is the following.. I begin from a CD cover, I make a modelling knife scorching with the help of kitchen cooker, then I cut the CD cover with the scorching knife. The raw sword now has thick edges, with a small rasp I smooth them paying attention to don't scratch the transparent surface. The final step is the realization of the hexagons. I draw them on the transparent surface with cutter in a delicate way, but I do this only on one side, in particular the rear side. Maybe the first times will be not a perfect work, but with a little of experience you could realize fantastic swords

;)


Un... believable...

That is so creative and out-of-the-box-thinking that I can't comprehend how you got that idea.
Absolutely fantastic!

To De'terra: Thank you very much :)

Hi to all,
Too busy with master degree and projects these days, but I'm here now, I'm going to share with you some photos of my last suit, now it misses only the lower part (legs), I've completed arms, shield generator and his weapon:

For the sword I've used the same technique, about the style I've thought something similar to Halo Grunt sword, in a Tau aesthetic!!!
What do you think?

I am so envious of that blade. It is so beautiful and has such a similarity to the new tidewall energy shield.

Thank you Chris :D
I read lot of good feedback about this typology of weapon, I'm starting to think to a mass production project :fear: :fear: :fear:

However these are pics of the blade:

This could be mounted on a normal XV8 for exemple :evil:

I just have to say it: Your conversions/scratch-builds are amazing.

If you are still interested in doing a domed geometric energy shield, look no further than the humble football (international, not American).
Interlocking hexagons with pentagons as needed. Rather simple, I know.

Happy hunting.
