Default Tua Ethereal Combat Suit

Well some

buddies came up with the idea of what if an Ethereal was on a Death World he wouldn&#039

;t be running around in a loyn cloth would he?

So I converted them a Combat

suit for him.

I also dont think an Ethereal would hide behind a helmet though

so I exposed his face and gave him a Combat Suit honor size blade.

Aren&#39;t Tau normally kind of curled up inside the Crisis suits? The suits have

a neck and head that are way to small to fit a Tau head inside.

I picture a

Tau&#39;s feet being somewhere just above the suit&#39;s knees, his arms in the torso

and his head just under the suit&#39;s neck, maybe near that indentation near the top of

the chest.

Actually I have

seen several suits cut open at golden demon contests and on art work.
The controller

of the suit sits in a chair inside the chest only.
Does not go into the legs and if

you look the suit has an eye slit for him to look out if he does not wnat o use cameras.



If you look close I removed and lowerd he height of the top of the suit.
Thsu removing this eye slit and the small kneck is where the head of the robot would be

but the suit open and closes in the center closeing up around the kneck of the Ethereal.



I made the blade from two Warmachine Storm Blade Captains power weapons.

Not too bad, I have seen worse.
I&#39;m

not sure I&#39;d have the entire head of the ethereal sticking up out of the suit, I&#

039;m also a bit unsure about the concept too.
But then again, it&#39;s your hobby

too. Possibly have it holding the honour blade doble handed? Might make it more

identifiable as an ethereal.

Oh this isn&#039

;t something serius.

Some buddiew where talking about it so I grabbed a suit

and slapped him together.
Literally in like 10 minutes.

Not for real and

just a quick idea.
Just letting people see what I do in my spare time.

As

far as my suits go I think I am upwards of 50-60 of thim.
I think aobut 8-9 dont go

to any armies or work in any games but the rest do.
