This is an updated version of my XV88-3, I have taken into account some suggestions I received on forums and removed the spacers on the SMS pods. i have also cleaned up the putty work on the body.
I have not posted much recently due to not being able to work on much because of real life getting in the way really (sucks, yeah). although hopefully I should post some more updates soon
Just a quick update on it, I have not had much time to work on it, however I promised an update today so here it is.
This is a project I started quite some time ago, a little while after the first tau codex came out. I have decided to resurrect this project in light of the impending release of apocalypse. the chassis and ion turret have not been modified since I started this project originally, the railgun turret is something i have recently put together when i first took the decision to resurrect the project. This is very much work in progress, it is not even anywhere near the size it will be when it is finished, it will hopefully be at least as big as a baneblade when completed. I hope I can keep you all frequently updated with more WIP shots of this
Some custom built Tau marker drones, currently they are just blu tacked to those horrible gw flying stems, eventually i will put them onto scenic bases like my gun drones are. its quite a simple conversion, if you can even call it that, but i think they look good
Just something i knocked up out of half a vehicle smart missile system and a half a flamer from a tau battlesuit.
Finished the ratman and human fire warriors completely now, I am not entirely satisfied with how the green stuff cast antennas came out, but its sure beats buying fire warriors just for antennas
This is some WIP pictures of my first fire warrior squad, I have decided to make a third of my fire warriors (4 in every 12 man unit) other races. my rational is that as the empire is expanding and the tau being communist space Russians let anyone join their empire and must be taking in lots of non Tau. my real reason for building them though is that just building them “as is” was boring me to death…
well, here is the entire squadron on their nice bases done.
I have decided to give my gun drones a little love. because in just about every other tau army I have seen they seem to be rather neglected of it. well here’s my first two, more to follow hopefully!
This is the test mini for the colour scheme of my new tau army, for those of you that have not guessed, its based on the zeon zaku from gundam
