Wow... That thing looks pretty sweet... One question though:
The burst cannons on the side (I think)... are they fixed or do they move? In the picture it just looks like they're a ball and socket assembly... Either way, pretty cool looking.

You make it yourself? Or out of things?... I take it you made it out of things but... wow... musta been big things...

Hey thanks everyone.

I have to say its really a conversion.

The model is called DreamForge and they made it.
Its all resin and I converted the weapons and the parts etc.

The brown is supposed to look weathered as if they have been alone for awhile.

Rust is a good thing.
The name of the co. games rules is Rusted Faith.
So the look is cool and goes well.

Thanks alot and when I get it painted Ill post good shots with all the details.

Well ya I suppose when I die you shure can I wount mind anymore if you have it.

WarGamer?
Where you at?
I need some rules help if you dont mind?

And as a name I am thinking of the Tua Super Heavy Kraken?
To the Tau it will simpley be the Kraken.

I will soon have this hole walker army done.

Iits for the backwards tau sept that is not as advanced is what I was thinking?

Or maybe for a Tau sept world that has really high Grav sot he anti grav ships etc crash to much so for the greater good they dont use them?

Or a really high population of Earth Caste on this planet?

So alot of walkers are made by them?
Thats not bad?

Help?

love the drone idea! gives a new theme to the hovering fly thingy...

GW advertisment...

You can get this small Spider Drone for 400pounds!...and if you want the weaponary that goes with it...it'll cost you another 500pounds!

I'd actually love having an army full of spider drones and huge Krkens...think of how it'd look...WOW...

So...when you finish making and painting them...can ya PM me or sumthin...I'll just get that sniper rif...I mean sniffer ri...aw...who am I kidding?!...I'm gonna go shoot ya so I can have your Spider Drone army!
