Default My Tau-Nob conversion

;D

im giddy, ive got an inspiration for a (i guess totally fluffy) conversion job.... and its a sinch:


itll be an ork Nob 'Ard Boy.. with an (forget the term) armored bonce(?) head.. with a Gun Drone hovering over and behind it... carbines replaced with 'jumper cables' to the Nobs 'Ead! till all be on the same base of course.


id call it an experiment in assault troop.. um... design. of course ill have to Tau 'clean and simple'-ize the Nobs armor (mostly i plan on buffing the unpainted armor plates with my dremel metal polisher tip.. ooh mirrory!), and replacin the gun with something suitable Tau.. say a burst cannon (devilfish scale fits well, 'suit scale is too teeny).. and of COURSE the Nob'll keep the Choppa!

i wonder what the rules would be for it... what points cost it would be.... if anything i could play it as a kill team boss/monster (mad scientist experiment, anyone?)

ok im done rambling, thought id share my excitement and giddy little eagerness... teehee! ill try and get some pictures up soon!

well the nob is already greened up and buffed up (mirror-plated ork.. ;D ) so far, the gun mod will take a while to look good, so its my next step.

Love to hear about cool conversions, this sounds cool so I would also love to see it when you finish him.

Sounds pretty wild.

So is he a Nob or a Nob being controlled by a drone?

I guess what I mean is does he fight for tau?
Thats what I thought when I read this.

Cool cant wait to see it if you can show it?

the concept is a mind controlled Nob fighting for the Tau. hehe im okay with this because as they say that a single gun drone has the robot intelligence of a squirrel, then thats certainly enough to control an Ork Nob, dontcha think?

;D

..may actually be enough brain power to control a whole squad of orks

Sounding like a cool conversion, though I don't know if Tau would be into removal of free will (fluff wise).

Better than being torn apart by an Orks bare hands.

free will??

Tau motto: 'For the Greater Good'

unspoke unedited motto: 'Give Up Will and Desires For the Greater Good'

.. but i mean that in a good way.


PS: bad news: the Digital camera i was gonna use is no longer available.. hmph... ive got no way to photo it as of yet..
