Good morning ATT!!!

Days passed, I've been really busy but now I'm here!
I've worked on my last battlesuit, XV75, I think it's at 90%, I must work on last details, small things.
This a bulky suit, more than XV78, made for long-term missions, I think it has the same size of Ghostkeel.

It is the biggest of my battlesuits!

Happy 2016 ATT!!!
Thank you very much Vaal' ke kovash'shi, glad to read that is your new fav suit, and it is also my new favourite battlesuit :P

In these days I've worked on my last suit starting the paintjob. I've finished the sensored head:

Now I'm starting its torso.
I've also worked on my Stingray Stealth Drone, painting the left wing and the body:

My personal opinion with that suit would be to give it a bit of a neck, since the head doesn't look like it could rotate past the frontal armour, but maybe that's just me! ;)

Anyway, with the XV75 and other suits that use the energy blades, what kind and thickness of plastic do you use? I may make some myself at some point.

For Vaal' ke kovash'shi:
I agree with you about neck, I'll probably pay more attention on this particular for next battlesuits!
About the thickness of the energy blade: I've used plastic with 1.5mm of thickness, however it is the plastic of a CD cover ;)

I've continued the painting job of my battlesuit, and these are the results:

What do you think about it?

Ohhh, that's clever! Thanks for the info, I can use that technique now! The arm's looking nice by the way!

Thank you very much Vaal' ke kovash'shi!! If you need help for the sword, please feel free to ask me everything ;)

These days I've worked on XV75 battlesuit, I'm at final stage of painting phase, I must finish right leg joint, right shin and feet. At this point this is the battlesuit:

Hi ATT!!!

I've finally bought a GW box related to battlesuits, XV8 battlesuit team. But not the last version, the old one.
I've immediately begun the conversion work, and this is the result:

Image
Image

I've converted the chest sculpting new surfaces, similar to my XV78, I've also converted the rear side cutting the jetpacks and adding some intakes taken from the jetpack and changed the size of the knees.

For what concerns the weapon, I've tried to realize a fusion blade adding a transparent blade to a fusion cannon and scultping on it some flames with green stuff. Here the pic:

Image


What do you think about this conversion? I'd like to convert the other two battlesuit in this way!

Cheers

:fear: Wow, subscribed! Wonderful painting and work. I really like your camo and I'm quite inspired to try it my own. I also can't wait to see your custom XV8 painted! I'm sure that will look awesome.

I am not a fan of the blade but to me fair I have yet to see a fusion blade I like. However the rest of the model is great, up there with your other suits and I look forward to seeing it finished

Thank you very much Redback and Redtide!!!! Glad to read your comments :)

I've started to convert the second XV8, it will be the team leader of the XV8 group, so I've decided to realize something different from the first suit, with a big intake below the sensor head. This is the model:

Quick question - are your battlesuits RC or internally piloted? I personally think your models are very cool, but they look kinda like they have even less space for a pilot than the GW models...

For Vaal'ke kovash'shi: Starting from my XV8 to XV78, all my battlesuits are pilotated, if GW XV8 are considered "pilotated" also my battlesuits are pilotated, in fact I've modified XV8 increaseing its volume on chest, and XV78 is more bigger than XV88 Broadside (I think XV78 is perfect for a crew of two). Oh however thank you for the "cool" adjective :D

Oh, OK, I couldn't tell the scale without a comparison. Good to know that these suits would actually be more comfortable for pilots that the GW ones!

I've finally completed my first XV8, I've modified its sensor head in order to be similar to the design of the new Firewarrior helmets (viewtopic.php?f=35&t=23545&p=309872#p309872).

Image


I've given to the left arm a shield generator with the emblem of the Cadre, now it is similar to XV78 design but it also fits with my new unit thanks to the intakes on the sensor head, as I've made on the Firewarrior helmets:

I love how spindly the suit is, but the Fusion Blaster is not anchored near firm enough in my opinion -it looks like it's floating off by itself!

Thank you so much red'gue'vesa :) :) :)

Thank you also to you Raverrn, I'm in accord with you with the anchorage of the fusion blaster, I'm going to fit this particular :)

So...

having lots of bits and casted pieces from my first own suit models, I've decided to realize a twin for my XV78 Vulcan.
During the sculpting and scratchbuilding work I've decided to try the adding of a custom (big) jetpack in order to fit better my suits models with the Tau design, and this is the result:

Image


I like so much this addition to XV78 and for this reason I've decided to add a jetpack also on the first model :fear: :fear: :fear:

What do you think?
