Good morning Advanced Tau Tactica. After spending so much free time (and work time) browsing all the great modelling, painting and conversion work I felt it was time to throw my hat in the ring.
There is an escalation league that just began in my hometown that I have signed up for. This project log will document the road to 1500 points of heavily converted Tauness. This will not be a competitive army in any way and the conversions will be taking heavy inspiration from the video game Titanfall.
The First Challenge
Complete 1 HQ and 1 Unit of your choice
Commander (Ogre Class Crisis Suit)
( Going to be converted to be about the size of a Broadside. )
Bodyguard (Stryder Class Crisis Suit)
Vector Retro Thrusters
Repulse Impact Field
(SEE PICTURES BELOW)
Kroot Mercenaries (Recruits)
20 Kroot w/ Shaper
1 kroot hound
20 sniper rounds
(Meant to be the Grunts. More than likely to end up Gue'sa Imperial Guard all kitted out for winter weather. Fluff for my force demands Ice planet preperations)
Here are 3 pictures of the recently built Stryder Class Crisis Suit.
There will be much more to come.
This suit was built using Necron legs for both the legs and arms of the suit. Space Marine Hands to hold the weapon. Crisis Feet, Stealth Suit Torso and a few random odds and ends. Ill be posting a few WIP pictures and Larger pictures very soon.
This Project is going to extend past the 1500 points and need to be made for the escalation league. The league is merly a starting point that will help drive the project toward its final goal. Comments, Criticisms, Suggestion and the like would be extremely helpful.
