The conversion and paint job on these models is well executed, and it adds a unique appearance to any Tau army. The rules are a bit strong for the points, but the overall entry deserves props.

I voted for you! By pure chance, even before the contest started, I had assembled my spare rail guns in quad configurations almost exactly like the ones you used. I will finish that project with your entry in mind and use the rules as they come from the completed fandex, that's for sure.

The judges appreciate this model for its combination of rules and fluff (recognizing the error on the datasheet). It would make a great addition to the Tau army, but likely needs a points adjustment to be properly balanced.
The Houndshark. in my eyes its the HRR variant of the HYMP that is the Razorshark. it even repeats the same HRR/HYMP mistake of not actually being superior against any but the most awkward targets. and then it costs even more, and looses the advantage of the turret shooting.
That being said, while I can't praise the rules, there is the model. The entire entree looks like it was taken straight out of the codex. Everything else here looks like a conversion/kitbash, and some better than others-but this? I KNOW where the conversions are, and I can't even see a mismatch. Everything is aligned so perfectly and painted so accurately that I bet that if you show someone who ever saw a Razorshark a picture of both side by side, he wouldn't manage to tell what is the conversion and what is the actual model.
