Thanks for the compliments Lyi'ot, and moving this to the project logs section. Hope it's okay if I still post game results and commentary after trying out my newly built units.
Right now I am in a building and playing mode. I haven't fully paited anything, just basecoating and airbrusing first layers. The result is some very cool conversions that I am proud of.
Hopefully I will get into the mood to paint some of these soon, but for now i will continue to post up my WIP.
Here is my female Cadre Fireblade. I really like the fieblade armour but not the pose, so I chnaged it up a bit and added Shadowsun's head. I already have a fireblade with pulse rifle, so thought I would change it up with a carbine.
Continuing my work on female tau warrior models led me to make a really simple counts as Darkstrider model. When I was first building the finecast Darkstrider model I noticed that he was a little too small next to the new plastic Pathfinders, so I decided to try and recreate his pose with plastic Pathfinder parts and his resin head. That left me with his finecast body and gun and base. A simple head swap with the kadesh head from Zealot miniatures, and a few bitz and now I have 2 Darkstriders.
I just finished priming her, so no picture yet but I will keep them coming. Currently on the workbench, an Aun-shi conversion using the cadre fireblade torso and Aunshi's head, staff and hand; as well as a kroot shaper using an old XV-15 torso. Comments and questions always welcome, will post more as I create!
