I'm looking forward to your models being painted. I hope they turn out as good as your convert skills.
Riptide looks swell. only the joints connecting the guns to the shoulders could use some inspiration, like proper mounting units.
Keep them coming.

I mean, eldar and humans both being mammals is coincidence enough, not every "normally breeding" race need to falls under that classification, and we have no evidence that Tau does, so it least in my book they are about an equal split, we just can't really tell who is what.

She's (very sensibly) wearing too much armour for us to get an idea of whether her body, and those of others Tau females, is similarly "feminine" (in human terms) but I really don't see any reason why it shouldn't be.
The humanoid body shape appears throughout 40K (and sci-fi more generally) because it is recognisable and familiar, not because there should be any realistic expectation that aliens will look like humans. Orks do not have females at all, but otherwise the same assumptions among these humanoid races always seem to hold. In the absence (AFAIK) of any evidence saying that Tau are different, it's a reasonable assumption that they are basically the same.
(After all, Tau are often - lazily - described as "bovine", by fans at least, due to their hooves. Cows have udders, why shouldn't Tau females have breasts? Is there a source I am not aware of that specifically says they do not?)

That's the way Kirk did it, the way Crichton did it, whatever Kevin Sorbo's character was on Andromeda, that's the way he did it too. That's the American Way, which makes these space boobs patriotic. 'Murrica, now with alien rave girls.
So, I'm assuming that I will receive some kind of shiny forum medal for ending the debate about Tau female junks once and for all in such a decisive manner. I'll just go get some internet polish for when that medal gets here.
