I'm glad to see my ...Sept-mate back online! Congratulations with second child! More shas'la for our Sept!
What a nice XV8 conversion! Where did you get those guns?
How are you going to decorate base?
Can't wait to continue our converting competition!
For the glory of Sa'cea and Tau'va!

The conversion looks stunning, I really like the barrels pointing out! Im not too fond of the ''ammo clips'' on the side; they just look a tad off compared to the ''blocky'' nature of our battlesuit design to me. Nonetheless great work, and I can't wait to see it painted up!
I must admit the ammo drums are something I wasn't sure of whetre to actually put them, so just put them in a place which felt natural...seeing it now though (and thanks to you confirming ) I'm toying with the idea of mounting them on his backpack with ammo feeds leading to the cannons - thoughts? - I'd need to get a few extra parts so I'll update with pictures when bits arrive in the post!

The only hiccup I see with that is that the first place I thought of putting the ammo drums was where your targeting systems are on the arms. The other logical place would be underneath the guns (like in the picture at this link: http://shop.ehobbyasia.com/ea-revolver- ... 86sg7GZiPs).
If you put them there (on the bottom), you could even mount a second set (as reloads) on either side of the jet pack. That would give the appearance of a weapon with such a high cyclic rate of fire that it has to carry extra ammo into the battlefield, which is consistent with the burst cannon feel.
