Default Nitpick

Does it bother anyone else that the model right on the first page has only 3 fingers on the right hand? Or that the sarge is looking through a clip of photon grenades?? They could have at least gone through the effort of GS another finger on, or hacking out the Tau hand and adding a human hand - or doing something to those grenades to make it look less like a random part jammed on the end of binoculars...

Good inspirations though.

Yeah i found out that my own conwersions are much more prcize, especially the ones equiped with tau weaponry. I got impresion that they only sticked TAU looking parts on human models, not caring about the look.

I just uploaded the picture of mine coversion to the TAU olnine galery so you can see the picture there. (Only problem i sthat the picture is a little bit blurry but still fine enough to see it - http://tauonline.org/gallery/display.php?id=60).

Blurry or not, that pic is far better and looks more like I would imagine they should!

+++Well actually, I like the BG conversions. (Most of them, not too keen on the cut down chaos helmets, or hairy heads, or grenade -> binoculars). Although rogen's conversion is good as well +++

When I heard the fluff on them I thought that they were raised in Tau communities. I gave them as much Tau gear as I could. But in all cases, there was not enough to go around. Here is where I posted pics of mine in a different thread. WIP.

That conversion was really easy, i used crew from Cadian heavy weapon team, as they have nice heads and legs, the arm holding the gun is granda launcher arm from cadians but i just lciped off the GL and the cut enough of materials to fit the Pulse rifle, so he is holding it with human hand, and i found that the hand that left hand from lissile launcher (that one supporting it) fits right in place so he look like shouting. olny parts used from TAU sprue was torso, backpack, shoulder guard and aerial.
