8th Ed. is getting me jazzed to play units i don't normally run. So I have been busy building up units, like more fire warriors and now a custom hammerhead for Longstrike.

Still lots to do, but got a lot done today. Hope you like it, and are working on your armies for 8th Ed.

Love the engines on the front! Makes the chasis look a thousand times cooler! I kinda wish they would look like that by default.
Now I have to build another Hammerhead for Longstrike. :D

Pimpin' that ride :D Nice man, I had largely forgotten about all those Forgeworld Hammerhead mods.

Yeah, I think Longstrike may be better with some of those turrets. Getting pretty stoked for the challenge of 8th.

I did hit a block though, want to change the hatch on the back of the hammerhead but can't think of what to do. Any ideas?

There was somebody who did a conversion which I thought was pretty cool. They took part of the rails off the Ion Accelerator and glued it on the back as like a "cooling" system (with a few other modifications of course). It's floating around on this site somewhere but I can't remember where for the life of me.

Agreed, Ifrit is right - that would have been my recommendation. It was recent - has to be in a Project Log updated in the last week or so :)

Probably mine, at least I haven't come across any similar hatchwork in the past month...

Fio hat on: Actually, it's an ion cannon from the hammerhead, no extras there, just creative reattachment.

Por hat on: It's in Modelling, although maybe it should be re-classified, as it has drifted a bit.. *musing*

I haven't worked on it for a few weeks (been out of town) but the 'hatch' is done apart from greenstuffing in the gaps and a bit of polishing. The image links to a highres one on flickr, should be all you need, but I'd be happy to assist :D

Longstrike will be mad if you skip off with his ride :(

His mechanic will help you make your very own copy though..


Wait just one minute, your Longstrike wants a custom ride like my Longstrike.. who has the real Longstrike :eek:

Common minds. I did something quite similar just the day before. :)

Been a rocky start for me and the Tau with 8th. Lost 4 out of 5 games so far, and even contemplated putting them on the shelve!
But a number of signs have made me stay the course and fight it out. The biggest sign was the title of the new Farsight novel coming out in July: Crisis of Faith!
So I'm back for better or worse, and Farsight will lead my battles in 8th! Here is some work in progress on my Commander Farsight conversion.

Liking that, nice and beastly but at the same time that advanced tech alternate to standard Tau Suits. :)

The last time I looked your work here was amazingly inspirational!

Unfortunately, I've returned and it looks like non of the images are working now :-(

Photobucket has held users photos to ransom, utterly repugnant behaviour when they could have approached this in a completely different manner. It has affected many of our members. :(

Hey gang, since photobucket has axed 3rd party hosting I have decided to create a facebook page to share my Tau models and conversions. So if you'd like to check it out here's the name you may have to look it up as the link isn't posting to the right page:
