I have a 3d printer as well, and I am also a bit of a tau purist which makes me really interested in this... Have you been able to make an .stl file for these?

This project was on the back burner for quite a while but I finally finished up the 3d model and it's headed off to printing and once everything is ready it'll be up on http://www.reddogminis.com :)

Excellent! Did you happen to figure out a weapon design too?

I have something for a weapon option underway.

Thanks, starting to get the hobbying bug back. Life and health issues had me kinda burned out for a while.

So, after a long time of lurking, you sir, finally gave me a reason to make an account.

I'm patiently awaiting/tracking that jet pack. I've been scouring the web and every possible corner to find exactly that.

XV15 conversion made easy, here I come! Just grab a fire warrior, that jetpack, double shoulder pads, plus an extra pad on the chest to bulk him out a tad bit... bam.

Wilco!

Currently trying to convert some XV25s per a thread I've seen on here. Picking up some green stuff this weekend to flesh them out better.

Between my low skill/experience and the XV25 arms, not really satisfied with it so far. But eh, it's a learning experience. First real conversion is never the prettiest.

The packs will be ready mid-july, waiting on the printer to get back from vacation. Pics and info will be posted as soon as I have them.

Right before that I was able to squeak these in under the wire. I revised the back banners to correct a couple minor issues to make it easier to cast and be a bit more durable on the table. It's hard to tell in the pics but the support pole is thicker and the flag portion is nearly twice as wide as it previously was. (which is still pretty thin) I need to do some final cleaning on them and the revised banners will be posted up on the site next week.

I also finally got around to having these printed which I've been sitting on for over a year but never pulled the trigger with since it was a personal project. I wanted to go with the classic over the shoulder style Broadsides for my army. These are mounted on one of the new plastic crisis suit kits that uses the Iridium armor options.

I finally have open access to a 3d printer, woot! This was the very first print I did. I'm still a super new person on the software and I got lucky that it printed out correctly but I'm really happy with the results so far. The white stuff is frosting just below the surface from the cleaner but it doesn't seem to impact the details, I gave it a quick dab of paint just to make sure. I need to make a few tiny adjustments and I'll also be trying out a test print for my jet pack design later today. :D

Grr, photobucket has killed their free hosting so all my pics are down. I'm linking to some of my facebook pics and hopefully that will work ok.

After a week of pulling out all my hair fiddling with the printer I have some test prints of the jet pack that are looking pretty solid, they also make for some killer Infinity mods as well. For those interested they're now up on the Red Dog Minis site.

Paulson, those jetpacks are amazing. Do you know if they fit on the XV15's? I'd love to see the quad aerials on a low-profile stealth suit.

They are very close in size, so it should work well on the old style xv-15s.
