Default My Tau Jetbike -- pics now

EDIT: See pics in my below reply.

OK if all goes well I will have access to a digital camera in a few hours time.
For now I'll post a little sketch I did in photoshop. Sorry if the topic title is a bit misleading.



Some of the parts on that pic are out of proportion and the actual model looks much better, but this gives you the basic idea..

Like I mentioned in my other post it's fairly simple, it's basically made from a bunch of spare parts I had lying around (well, except for the antennae, I had to amputate those off some poor drones).

I need a name. I was thinking minnow because it's fairly small, or pike or something.

If you read carefully (I guess I could have been more specific as well ;D) I have the model already made. I'm leaving for my friends house as we speak, and when I'm there I'll definitely take some pictures with his digital camera and post em up here!

See you in an hour or so!

Default My Tau Jetbike -- pics

Sorry for being so late, I tried to get a private game in at my friends house but we were rushed to get over to Games Workshop (he had a doubles match), after that I remembered that I wasn't allowed out too late so I had to go straight home and couldn't get any pics with his digital camera. :'(

The good news is that I dug up a cheap webcam lying around. Enjoy:





Hopefully the sketch will fill in any blanks from the blurriness of the pics, and vice versa*

I also have a rider made for it,




His legs were pretty hard to do -- you know the Fire Warrior legs that are really close together, one slightly raised (toes only touching the ground)?

Also his arm is raised up because I'm using him for a custom character. He will have a dark blade, muhahaha.

Not bad, but have you seen the original Tau-Jetbike thread? Way back in the archives, and with a rather different armament too.
