Default Tau Security Robot

Tau use Drones and advanced AI to help them so I just quickly made a security robot out of some bits.

I could picture this guy hanging out in a corrider or hallway or at a gate just waiting for some dumb imperialist to come along.

Think EDD209 from RoboCop.
"Drop Your Weapoons"
BUUUURRRRPPPP! AS the burst cannon waists them.

Good stuff.

Needs some paint on him if you guys like it that is?
And what weapons should he have I have all kinds?


Here the little guy is.

Thanks.

Hey, it's ED-209 in all but name!

Nice model! Reckon it should be burst cannons and a missile pod only for armament, because IIRC that's all ED had... as well as maybe a special rule about failed difficult terrain tests ;D

Crime Prevention Unit-001 should be given a bolt pistol that hits on a 2+ BTW

ooops sorry I shouldn't be laughing.
But that was funny. Hope your ok.

Glad you like it.
Should I build the other one?

I have enough bits to make 2.
And what weapons do you guys think?
The bursts so far is good enough?

Let me know?

Hah... this is an interesting looking thing. I like it, I also think it's pretty goofying looking but not in a 'crap' sense, more of a humerous yet cool looking type of way. What are those legs from I want one of these things now!

THe legs are from a Void fig.
A tactical robot thing?

Bought a couple to use for my tau because they looked cool got them and they would not work with Tau at all.

So converted them into sentry or security robots like this one and now I think they work better?

The others legs are both on the ground this is the only guy whos walking.

Thanks.
