Default Is this conversion worth it?

I am considering doing an alternate Shas'o for my Tau. The model will be a battlesuit, standing lifeless, with the Shas'o standing in front of it, her hand on the battlesuit. The thing I do not yet have are priced. I have not decided what weapons/ gear the battlesuit will have.

General Things:
Green stuff

Battlesuit
1 XV8 Battlesuit 10

Shas'o
Devilfish sprue C 7
Shadowsun's heads 2

Postage and Packaging 4

So I will have to spend 23 to make the model. Now hopefully for Crimbo I will recieve the Rapid Interdiction force, and I will have 3 spare battlesuits then, and I will also then buy a hammerhead. Is it worth spending 23 now, remembering I'm on a quite tight budget, or should I wait, an then buy Shadowsun's head by itself?

Thanks
-Shadowsun.

are you sure you want to use Shadowsun's helmet for your XV8? it seems to me like it'd be a tough fit and it may look a bit awkward on the bulky XV8 suit (compared to Shadowsun's sleek design). I'd suggest converting either a Commander or a regular Shas'Ui head, might be a little cheaper.

The idea sounds pretty great though. Also, if you're really on such a tight budget, I have the bits for a Devilfish pilot still in the sprue, assuming you live in the UK I could mail it to you? It'd save ya 7 pounds. I also have Shadowsun's regular head should you want it.

I don't need anything in return for it.

This would be great. What I mean by Shadowsun's head is the bare head as a head for the commander standing in front of the XV8.

i just thought, would this fit on an XV8 base. I may need a heavy weapon squad size one. As for my addy, is there any safer way to do that? No offense, I'm just uncomfortable.

It does pay to be careful about your address online. If you are worried about it, the best thing to do is to use a third-party address such as your place of work or your school, and ask they they mark it "c/o" for "care of". This is also a useful trick for when you have trouble getting packages at your home address (apartment, dorm, etc.).

I would use the larger base for this. I have done a lot of mini-diorama models like this over the years, and the extra space really comes in handy.
