Default Earth Warriors (more of them)

I have been converting Fire Warriors using Catachan Jungle fighters bits. Some of you have called them Earth Warriors. I don't know about the feasability of this but I do intend to paint grease smudge marks on them in those peoples honor. I like to think that this is what an entire squad of Shas'uis when not in armor. Well trained and ingreat shape. I guess we can also call them a Terminator squad for Tau. Who knows maybe they will even elect a Tau governor of California.

I have shown you four of them and now have nine or ten assembled. I thought i would ani-giff themand put them up here to show. The process is tedious but not complicated so I will try to get one up here each day. I will put them all in this thread.

+++I like. He looks like, to me, a Fire Warrior gone a bit feral. Seeing as he has a knife and Catachan clothing. I can't imagine a normal FW carrying a knife. Maybe they went on a crusade away from the Tau empire, and got cut off for a while from the other Tau. So the commander decided it was for the greater good to train his warriors for close combat and jungle warfare seeing as that was their only chance of survival. Then they return to the Tau empire after an extended period of time, but find it hard to adapt back to their old ways. Rules could be similar to normal FW but perhaps with the Ork Fighter upgrade a la Commander Farsight? Just my take on it, maybe you have your own fluff... And the ani-gif is good +++

Acording to the WYSIWYG rules I should have a knife on each figure in a Bonded squad. "Bonding knife" but yeah these knives are basically short swords to these guys. Got to wonder if the big knifes of the catachan jungle fighters are compensating for something else being small.
