Thank you kindly, the guns are actually the J'Kaara Yanoi Cannons, but I suppose triple twin linked heavy rail rifles has a ring to it as well!
My main inspiration was the Gundam Heavy Arms from the series Gundam Wing, Im just not too much a fan of barrels on my guns, so I tried to make a kind of fusion blaster like gun. Im also indeed a follower of ''the shootier the better'', hence the ''over the top'' guns? Unfortunately, Im no pro at modelling, but I'll be sure to keep your tip about sandpaper in mind! I plan on converting again soon, so Im sure it'll come in handy, thank you very much!
As for the tabletop, I normally run him simply as a Mark'O with dual plasma rifles, but I do indeed have a ''custom ruleset'' for him if you're interested. However, to justify and explain some of the rules, you should know a little of my fluff I suppose.
J'Ka Yan operates as the sole leader of the Obsidium Battleforce (Obsidium is the material my cadre's equipment is made of, hence the metallic purple look), which is the only means of defense/expansion my Tau Colony has. My colony is isolated from the main Empire, though they are no defectors. However, as such the few tau remaining from the original expedition are precious to the colony, and there are few lives that can be spared for the military prowess of the cadre. As such, Shas'O J'Ka Yan and his Ethereals had instructed their remaining earth caste engineers to device a sophisticated AI, which Shas'O J'Ka Yan can give directions to during the battle. As such, when the Obsidium Battleforce marches to war, most if it are automations and directing AI's, with sometimes extra input from J'Ka Yan or some of his other officers. While materials can be scarce and valuable, this method has proven very effective in maintaining a healthy population rate at the colony. In battle the various AI streamline data to each other and J'Ka Yan, allowing for rapid battleplan adaptions and devastating attacks on enemy weak spots.Shas'O J'Ka Yan
