I'm currently playing some Kroot Hounds in my list and have been proxying them as I don't like the models much and think they're a bit overpriced in terms of real-world cost. There are some other models that I like better from GW, such as Chaos Warhounds, but I don't feel they'd mesh well with Tau and would also look awkward on 25mm bases.
What I'd like to do is convert something to look like a robotic dog / drone dog since that would fit my theme and be a nice little project for my army. Unfortunately I really have no idea where to start with that. I'm also hoping for at least 50% GW bits since I do play in some GW events so that does complicate things a bit.
So far the best idea I have is to take the disc portion of a drone but I'm not sure what would make a decent melee weapon to go underneath them. I'd prefer it be obvious since I don't want any confusion, my list also uses quite a few Gun Drones.
Anyone have any ideas to help me out? Happy to post a test model once I have a solid idea in place. :]
