Default Another try at a Tau jet bike...

Meet the design plans for the Tau Beta Class jet bike (Beta as in Japaneese Fighting Fish)



Anybody that has the parts avaiable and wants to try this one, go ahead. I would love to face one of my Ideas accross the table, even if Icouldn't get to build it myself yet.

I invision it with having the two front drones as burst cannons Twin linked, and the two in back as shield drones for the Inv Save even when standing still.


*** Appended here, mentioned later.

It looks quite original although i dislike the second batch of drones, as it makes it abit large and less streamlined, which to be honest Jetbikes should be... Nice try though.

I use Photshop 6. Have been using it since version 3. Just use many layers.

The problem with scaling the parts is that I have kept them all to scale with each other, those are direct cuts off a Devilfish and the engine is to the same scale, just sliced down the center and another exterior half added to it for symatry. The only thing Ican not garenty is to scale is the rider, but I think he is close. He was a Tetra gunner.

Hmm... yes it does... Well im out of ideas now, see your biggest problem will be making something which fits in with the rest, as it needs to be reasonably blocky but still be streamlined so it looks like Tau by design, otherwise it could end up looking like Eldar, like that one does... Good luck fiddling with the design, or you could just revert back to the original design, if you so wish...
