! Its actually a Longstrike model, with a greenstuff/XV8 exhaust jump pack, but I think it does have a more streamlined aesthetic than the XV25s.
I've made a start on some Gue'la. This is a project I've been wanting to do for a long time; I briefly tinkered with a Cadian heavy weapons team and a bunch of missile pods around 2005, but it didn't look very Tau. Given my desert orientated theme I wanted to use Tallarn parts (Specifically Forgeworld sculpts), and again that presented me with problems.
After literally months of searching I managed to get my hands on a single heavy weapons team (a theme develops...)
this wasn't in perfect condition (see greenstuff replacement nose), and did leave me with just the two head options and one duplicate set of legs.
With the aid of some press moulds I have made a start combining the plastic firewarrior kit with the heads and foot (the entire squad will have two left feet) of the tallarns
I have slightly re-sculpted the boots to hide the left-footedness
The team so far:
...and a 'helmeted' head option:
More soon, as always C&C is welcome
