You may want to try out some alternate weapons for the vehicles such as:

Not sure how useful it'd be, but I kitbashed an IG sentinel into a Gue'Vesa broadside. Anyway, the power plant might give you some ideas.

Here is a model tank from an anime Akuyaku - Pig Tank (Note crewmen in front of the first image.)

Which someone has already "gue'vesaed up".

I image with some weapon swaps and bits and bobs from the Hammerhead/DF/Skyray model, you could really do up a great gue'vesa tank.

PS The "pig tank" will show up in a future "squat army".

That looks more like an Imperial army trying to copy the Tau design instead of the opposite though imo. :D

Tiberian Sun is one of my favorite games (probably due to nostalgia more than anything). Love the artwork @Tael. I'm going to re-learn how to use Maya and see if I can't model something in the coming weeks.

Actually, I just found the card plans for the hovertank, top row, right.

Basically you can make a version of that art out of card at whatever scale you want to print the sheets out as :)

Interested?

So, the question is, how far integrated will your Gue'vesa be into the T'au Empire.

For my, at the current time mostly theoretical, Gue'vesa Army, I go for the "early stages look", Like replacing some of the weapons and use some of the gadgets you get with the Tau Kits.

There was some discussion in my thread when I was working on my Chimaera, which was a heavily converted Chimera, maybe some of the suggestions people posted there will help you?
