Default Re:Anyone got an idea for cool tau conversion?



Hey i am ork player and i picked the race for the fact that i could do tons of conversions. Well my buddy plays Tau and for christmas i wanted to make him something unique. So i came over here to see if any of youz Fish-eadz ad' anything cool that you have convereted or any ideas.

I really dont know to much about tau vehicles or unit or whatever but i was thinking something along the line of converting a devil fish or one of Battle suits.

Thanks for any helps and ideas in advance!

maby try a crisis suit in an action pose, rather than just floating there like they normally do.
i can't think of any more. orks are much more conversion friendly.

Check out a load of GreyDeath's stuff, he has done LOADS or really cool tau conversions.
There are pictures of his work on this forum, just look around

Hive Lord's right, GreyDeath's stuff is sweet. Only problem I have is convincing my friends to let me use the rules for them . They don't seem to be accepting the fact that GW designed it so you could make "House Rules" and "House Content" for fun play... Ah well, c'est la vie...

The Crayfish (on this page, lots of differnt topics for them...) is a cool conversion, doesn't look too hard (though I could be horribly wrong), and is a good idea that makes sense.

Etherial Crisis suit: seems like a cool idea, though not something I would personally go for, but that's just me.

"Shark" Heavy Battle Suit (bottom of the page): Seems sweet, though there seems to be some controversy over the rules for it... but nonetheless cool sounding.

Crisis Bike: Nce, and I always thought the Tau should have a bike of some sort... Problem being that the bike is from an online hobby store and would be hard to duplicate, or even find...

Tau Pacu: Awesome! But that's just my opinion .

Stealth Army: Cool idea, but no rules for it, so you'd have to do those on your own... Of course that's half the fun, heh...

Er... sorry if you don't like me telling him to look at your stuff for ideas, GreyDeath, they're just... so damned cool looking.

Hope that helps your friend, RoseMarysBaby, good luck with the conversions .

alright thanks a lot for the ideas. I definetly thing i will be doing something with the crisis suit now. Maybe i will do a nice squad and leave them unpainted as he loves painting and my painting skills are far sub par when compared to my conversion ablilities.
