Default Tau Jet-bikes (With pictures)

Hey people..
Today I felt like making a Jet-bike... So I did :P
I need to fix some things like the green-stuff and there are some mold marks.

Here are the stats:
Fast attack
Weapons: Burst-cannon
WS / BS / S / T / W / I / A / LD / SV
2 / 3 / 3 / 3(4) / 1 / 2 / 1 / 7 / 4+

And do you think they can get some upgrades? Like a Shield Generator?

Now pics!
(I created this under a Hour)




What do you think?

awkward.

nice attempt though!

i think the front needs some more structure. some more modeling as well, you need to hide the fact you are using a burt cannon as a steering wheel :P

it lookd very clunky. keep messing with it though, i have faith!

That looks great , much better then my two attempts :P

You should probably redo the table.

Here is the code you'll need

Code:
[table][tr][td]  [/td][td]Cost[/td][td]Ws[/td][td]Bs[/td][td]S[/td][td]T[/td][td]W[/td][td]I[/td][td]A[/td][td]Ld[/td][td]Sv[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]Unit[/td][td]***[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][/tr][/table]

Youi'll get this as a result

[table][tr][td] [/td][td]Cost[/td][td]Ws[/td][td]Bs[/td][td]S[/td][td]T[/td][td]W[/td][td]I[/td][td]A[/td][td]Ld[/td][td]Sv[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]Unit[/td][td]***[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][td]X[/td][/tr][/table]

I would like the model IF it had a real front rather than a burst cannon. try modifying one from an eldar jetbike maybe?

as for more options, disruption pod and/or shield generator. and maybe a markerlight

I'd use some platicard to make skirts on either side of the tip of the nose to disguise the burst cannon also that control collumn is in some serious need of handel bars

Aside from that it's a very impressive piece I half expect to see luke sky walker jump out and cut the nose off with a light saber ;D

I don't want to seem like I'm imposing on Jezzalinko's thread, by doing this.

But here is my attempt at making a Tau Jetbike. I kind shelfed the project after reading a thread here on TO about a year ago, and really havenm't done anything to it since.



Its kind of a one off, as I use parts from some affix kits I didn't want to assemble, (A helicopter mostly :P)

The nose is a cut up flamer with a Target lock/array just behind to act as a Target lock/array (or just a headlight), the back is a Burst cannon, cut up as well. The foot thingies are grenade holders, the handle bar is a random piece of plastic I has, with some dials made from another greade holder, just not cut into two. Just underneath, I used a Missile pod. Everything else is green stuff and helicopter.

Sorry for the poor picture quality, I just snapped these quickly.
