So I've been thinking for a while that it'd be cool to make a Completely converted, themed army, most likely for the Tau!
So one Idea was to make a Star Wars themed army, based on the original trilogy (Episodes 4,5,& 6) as the Imperials. Or any maybe 1,2,3.
I think that the Tau would be great for this, seeing as the have advanced weaponry, and such. Piaranhas as Land Speeders, FW as Storm Troopers, Devilfish as Droid Carriers, etc.
Or a SM army, using the commander with a power weapon, and converting him to Darth Vader and using a Light Saber to represent the power weapon, with a bolt pistol of some kind on his belt.
The Tactical Marines could be Storm Troopers, and the Land Speeders, be Land Speeders, and such.
Or Use IG, and use walker as walkers, storm troopers as storm troopers, etc.
I realized that you could take either side of the Star Wars universe, in either of the 2 trilogies, and make it into an army, using Kroot as Wookies, using FW as battle Droids, etc. So I'd really have to decide on a firm base to work from.
I just like the Tau, and thought that their advanced weapons would represent the Sci-fi style of Star Wars, what would you suggest?
Also I thought of using the Tau Crisis suits as Gundams, etc. Which might work, but I'd have to work out the idea more.
So what do you think would work best with the rules, minis, etc.?
It's just every time I look at the Imperials, I think of like 3 different armies I could use to represent them, and then I realize that the Rebels would be fun to do too. So which do you think would work best?
(I'd have to re-name some stuff, and do things like, count a pulse carbine as a..um... whatever they are, those laser guns they use.
It's been a while since I watched the movies....)
