Default Female Tau unit/HQ

Ok people I wan't to add diversity to my

Tau army. So I need you're help. I haven't done to many conversions but I plan

on getting started on a few Ideas. First and Formost too split up the consistancy of the

modles looking the same I think there should be some female fire warriors, Path Finders

or Perhaps an Ethereal, that would look cool.

So what I'd like is a few

ideas on how I could possibly make a Female Tau. At this moment I dont care what unit it

will be. Ok any Ideas? I will need to buy some Green stuff, and Eldar have alot of female

models so perhaps use of thoes to aid in the conversion? Anyway gimi a hand, thanks. ;D

Female Pathfinders or FW's would look

tacky...but a female ethereal! That COULD look alright!

I'd just use an

ethereal and green stuff, maybe have one of these female Eldar to help but dont actually

use!

That should work if ur able to use Green Stuff...

You GET females in the fluff (after all,

inter-caste breeding is punishable by death...) but clearly, theres a problem in

modelling them...

a female Etheral would be the best and easiest way to go.

Ok then a Female Ethereal...That will give me

3 :P.. Anyway I'm not to sure on how to make it. I haven't done too many

conversions... I figure I could get a Deamonite on mount of slaanesh, put aside the

mount, take off the head of the deamon, put the more womanly ethereal head on the body (

or maybe keep the origional), then add a cloake and clothes with green stuff. Might work

... Solves how to make the female body. Then just add Tau clothes. what yah think?

Hmmm, I don't know why but I've

only just realised that I always kinda assumed the Ethereals were sexless, I never

thought of them as Male or Female...guess it's because they don't seem to have

particularly masculine or femenine appearances.

I doncidered that too but after looking at the

Ethereals I thought that some were very Masculin and some not. That shows diversity in

the species i guess... For example the one with the 2 septer things being held to his

chest looks like a anrgy old man and even has a long beard... The other with an arm in

the air has smoother features and don't look too much like a man.. Anyway, if that

dun convince you I just wana make a female Ethereal because it would look cool :P

You could put a FW head on a Howling Banshee body... See what that gets you.

U couuld actually use green stuff on the ethereal head and depending on what aspects of the face u change u could get a more feminine appearence. e.g raise the cheeks etc

One thing i would recommend is extending the hair on the ethereal, keep it the same styl just extend half way down the back or maybe over the shoulder.

If you need some idea's I know that there is a great description of a female water caste member in the book "Fire Warrior." If you happened to go to a book store skim through it and find the description of her. That may give you idea's on female Tau physiology. Hope it helps!

sorry for being fairly crude... but who says that a female tau has to have tits?

to quote terry pratchett on dwar(ves)/(fs)

"Dwarfs never seemed to bother much, there had maybe been the odd confusion, well, more than the odd, but when a dwarf thinks of another dwarf the pronoun 'she' does not exist."

mebbes its the same with the tau?

think about it.

tau firecaste female and male are fighting.. they arent going to be too keen on one of them getting pregnant (who said it had to be her?)

best leave that to retirement eh
