Default Tau Shas'ui with Bonding Knife. (warning, 56K will die)

I'm sorry, I just had to. ;D



That's a Shas'ui with a pulse rifle. I'm happy with him, even though his arm slipped a bit (it'll be fixed). Ignore the blue stuff sticking out in the gap, it'll be trimmed. Also, he obviously isn't painted, though my paint scheme is a somber one that uses quite a bit of black.



That's a Shas'ui with a pulse carbine. You probably can't see it, but there's a strap holding the carbine to his knee. I'm not happy with the grenade arm, but I can live with it. Also not painted.

For both, I used Howling Banshee arms. I stole the idea from Malcaor but executed it differently. :P The rationale behind it is that.. well.. Shas'ui have an extra attack. Where does it come from? Shas'ui also happen to have access to the bonding knife. Hmm.

And yes, I do know that it isn't used for combat, but what I have looks a lot better than the original knife. :P

While i'm at it, how does this Crisis pose look?



Any comments and criticisms would be appreciate. I'm very happy with how they turned out.

I like the first one...The second might look better if he was looking the other way from the grande, like he was about to chuck it, or straight ahead. Nice job though! (BTW are those banshee swords?)

They look good all in all, but honestly I say that it appears you have used a tad too much Green stuff. also, a few more angle shots (like for their shoulders) may be a good idea...

Thanks! Oh, and my original rationale was that he was looking towards his troops and just holding his grenade out defiantly, but it was too late to change it afterwards.

Yeah. 1 and 3 I believe.

I agree with you, though it was my first time using green stuff and it was only to fill a gap in, but hey, can't blame a green stuff newbie. ;D

As for more angles, I do have some.

Rifle Shas'ui





Carbine Shas'ui







Crisis Suit!
(not a conversion, but I took his picture along with the others, so..)

No offence, but the part where you attached the arm to the body, looks like it's seen the wrong end of a flamer.

He did say he needs to clean up the green stuff. Why are folks still harping on it?

I like it. My Tau would never wield swords, but it's a neat conversion for Shas'uis of a more traditional sept.

I know the models aren't done, but I see a ton of flash that needs to be scrapped off before painting. Otherwise...neat conversions. I look forward to the paintjob!

As for the crisis suit, it's a static pose. Not terrible, but nothing fancy about it. My Crisis suits look pretty much the same as I didn't really do any converting on them either. It's one of those kits where I wish they had divided the arm into two pieces.

If that is a Bonding Knife, that is crazy!

Nice conversion. Erm...why do your models look so shiny at the moment? You primed them?

The crisis suit, IMHO, would look better standing on the ground with a look like he either just finished annihilating something or is about to. Liking the samurai Tau, though.
