Your count as Gostkeels head I was I would think as a perfect head replacement for that monstrosity the call a head on there model. Keep up all the hard work love all the model you do.

That definitely looks better. At least he can look over the guard now. The rest of it could be countered by pivoting at the waist a little. You couldn't have done that effectively before.

To Chris in the socal: Thank you very much, at the beginning I thought to buy the Ghostkeel and to replacing his head with the actual head of my suit, but when I seen the date of the releasing I decided to sculpt him :P

To Deepstrike: Thank you Deepstrike, your tips are really grateful :D

This are my suit legs:

They come from bionicle bits, cutted, scratched and remodelled.

And this is the painting of the suit:

What do you think about this?

I have to honestly say, some of your earlier works are outside my comfort (Torso shapes mostly)

This Latest suit is starting to look really, Really good though!
Have you decided on the final pose yet? Though I believe it has been mentioned before, pivoting the the torso forward would give it a stealthy "I am hiding" look :P

Can't wait to see it all painted up!

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:

Image

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.

Of course, I'm studying the way to realize hexagons and pentagons with same dimensions from a transparent cover, solved this problem I'll add some of these shields to my models :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Hi ATT

Now my old battlesuits are all completed and painted, so it's time to start new battlesuits (maybe two). These ware the old segment with XV7 Stratos, XV77 Energhya and XV78 Vulcan, battlesuits with a retro style, and the new segment with XV9-07 Shockwave and the other two new suits, that are more near to GW style, modern, thinking about XV9-07 is a small version of Ghostkeel.
So during these days I've worked on XV8-0? Bowshock, I've already made his chest:
Image
Image
For head I've copied the style of one of the XV9 Hazard battlesuit, for shoulders they are made with Green stuff and milliput! For weapons I've made small swords with plasticard, some weapon bits from firewarriors, and the blade is made in the same way of other transparent swords!!
For intake on the back I've used two drones glued all together, and I added and sculpted some parts (grill and inlet section) with green stuff, milliput and plasticard!
Comments are welcome as always :)

That one of my favorite of your battlesuits so far! I've liked your custom battlesuit work for a while, very skillful and inspiring! My one question would be; are you going to mount some ranged weapons on the sides of the jetpack in one way or another? I personally thing that burst cannons on some plastic rod (or something) or upwards-angled missile pods would look cool.

Thank you so much Vaal' ke kovash'shi!!! Of course, I'd like to add a missle pod, as I've already done on XV9-07 :D

Hi ATT!!!
After XV8-07 (that is still under construction) I want to show you my last work.. I LOVE this suit, I fell in love with her during the construction work, it's XV75 Atlas :fear: :fear: :fear:
Image
Image
Image
I've used some parts and bits from old battlesuits, it will be the same tonnage of XV78.
For head I've used a similar version of the XV78, this also the weapon, the Vibro sword. And it will be a little bit more bulky.

Color scheme will be the same of XV78!
