Default Female Fire Warrior Team Leader

Like the title says.
Female Fire Warrior, Team Leader.

After reading what you all said to Fudoki I dont know If I should show this.

You guys are all pretty tuff on a guy who made a figure for a fantasy Sci Fi game?


Anyways I made this a little while back after the Fire Warrior book came out and it talked about female fire warriors and how they looked alot like males.
And how to us in the armour we as humans couldn't really tell them apart.


So I started this conversion.
Hey I want to tell you she is not supposed to be attractive to us as humans she is a TAU FEMALE not a playmate or centerfold.

I wanted to make her and make her look female so on a table you could tell shes a female so I put alot of work into making her just as I thought a female for Tau would look.
Not having figures, photps or enough info this is what I think she would look like.

Only if you want you may comment.
But hopefully not the same stuff you posted in Fudoki's thread because I already read it. Thank you.

the paint jobs not bad i'd sugjest make the face a little brighter(try mixing codex grey and elf flesh and dry brushing it onto the skin area's), and the red hair stick out a lot (i'd make it black or another toned down color), but other than that not bad

He's back. Awesome. Have you entered the Golden demon yet?

As for the conversion. I've heard allot of people talking about it, but your the first that I've seen give it a serious go. Given the lack of GW descriptions it is anyone’s guess as to what they look like. I like your idea, and well executed.

THanks guys for not only looking but taking it werious and giving feedback.

Elflord9d,
The camera I have is about 4 years old and it takes not so good photos.
It alays makes my stuff to dark.

Her hair is a dark red with light red hightlights and red is a good contrast to the Taus blue face.
And Tau woman proable wouldnt have all that hair probable still just have a top knot just really long but I wanted her to stand out, so thanks for the input.

Also the blue is not that dark.
I use space wolfs grey and paint on my highlites.
But again came out dark.

The camera is good enough to proove to people that I actaully make these things. But thats about it.
Oh and everyone says my bronw looks PINK???


GOD,
Thanks man and yes I am done building race cars and quit my old job so I should be able to hang out around here again.

Thanks and thanks to just sticking to the model I appreciate that also.

I think the other one got such a sting was coz it had breasts that were visible which created a bit of controversy and this the one of the best 40k female figures I've seen. Nice work Greydeath.

I think you were trying too hard. Female is fine, but she looks like a bimbo.

Anyway, I've done some pretty lousy green stuff convertions...
