Thanks guys; well I can gladly say I"ve begun that return to project:
Been awhile, but I am finally working on tau conversions.
The first idea for a veteran strike force is a couple of warriors who have seen the horrors of war and lived through it; not without serious injury.
I drew up a peice of art a couple years ago for a member on Advanced Tau Tactica, for a campaign pack with upgrades and veteran points.
The bionic leg always struck as a slick idea and I have since wanted to model it.
The first pass, likely to have some tech-bolt details. I also kept the hooves, rounding them further to seem artificial when the painted work comes. It seemed right that a Fio technician would have enough vanity and care to craft a leg and hoof not far removed from the owner's original.
More soon as I begin to evolve this new team.
Thanks for reading,
