Default Kroot Battle Suit

Well with my new giant model I stopped working on this for a little while.
So I thought I would just show it halfway done for you guys to see anyways.
When I get time I will finish it.

So far its converted and painted with 6 Layers of green.
For me thats twice what I normally do.

Well its the Battle Suit I made rules for.

Its a kroot Battle Suit and hes in the jungle.

Here he is from the front, sorry bad photo with flash at night so cant show how bright and layered the painting is.

And the top down from the tree level.

He has close combat blades and hes the Heavy weapons team member so he has twin linked missiles.
He is the only one in the squad that can carry heavy weapons.

If you want to see the rules let me know and I will show you.

Thanks what do you think?

Hmm... I don't know... Kroot battlesuit doesn't sound right to me... Though it does seem rather cool for an idea, and, as always, it's well painted and modeled. Another nice one for ya G.D. Wouldn't mind seeing the rules, always useful to see how they're to be implemented...

THanks guys and dont worry I am just side tracked right now painting my big Super heavy right now.

So I will have all the details on him done.
But he was sitting there so I wanted to atleast show what I had done so far to him.

I would say hes only 25% paintied as of right now.

I will get to the rest as soon as I can.

Thanks though.

Heres a side shot also to show more of the pose etc.

When the Tau first came out I didn't want to use them because they where not as high tech as the Tau.

So I came up with an idea to have Renegade Tau.

These Renegades actaully hunted Tau and became mroe Tau like and used there gear etc to fihgt.

Heres my old stuff from 2 years ago.

http://pic6.picturetrail.com/VOL169/...4/24214067.jpg
So I play them with the Tua rules but take maxed numbers of Kroot and the one squad of fire warriors which are Kroot with converted shoulder pads and weapons to stand out etc.

But recently I saw someone else who came up with rules and stuff like I did and so I re did a suit to try to be better.

And I re did the rules to have actually rules just for the Battle suit for kroot.
BAsed off what I saw.

As I said I play them as a converted Tau army no rules changes.

This new idea would actually include asking permission and new rules.

Ill post the rules.

So I made him.

Well heres the rules that got me going again.

A neat idea is to make multiple antenna things spring from its head, making it look more Kroot-like.
