Default Tau "Heaven" Commander. Painted.

Well here is my Commander for team "Heaven" All painted and ready to game.
With my Ethereal turning out so different I had to do something to make my Commander stand out for this army as well. I couldn't have my Ethereal being the center piece.

To me It has to be the commander with his suit. Here you go.

Thanks.

Head is form the

Landraider side sponson weapons site.

The wings is from a gundam back pack

that I opened up like a fan to make the wings.

the lower legs are from the

Robotech armored Valkyrie model.

Any more questions? ;D

to the mods: WE MUST

MAKE A FORUM JUST FOR GREYDEATH!! his conversions are far better than i have ever seen,

and with some work, his painting can easily get him a golden daemon!! \
<br /

>GreyDeath: man, kudos to you. your modelling abilities are exactly what i aspire to

acheive, and so far i just have the painting skills. but its the conversional skills that

make you stand out!!

thanks guys.

@Blood Swaring Tau,
its not about whos is better its about how good am I

getting with each new piece I do?
Its about my conversions and do the look cool or

do they look like what it is I am triing to build.
I appreciate the kind words but I

am not here to compair mine to yours.
I bet your newest painted figure is better

than your older figures?
So then your getting better and thats what its all about.


I appreciate hte kindness though thank you. And I do get your point but I am by no

means as good as a Golden Deamon winner either.

@Deaths Face, I dont need any

special treatment I just want to share my ideas.
And if you like them or can use

them buy all means do it.
If I can help all walk you threw my conversions so you can

practice and make them too.
I paint ok but as you said I love to convert and I think

that shows alot.
But you paint good already so you have one up on me, already.<br /

>
I appreciat the feedback thats all I am looking for so I do appreciate it and for

the input if you need help on a conversion all be more than happy to try and help you

out.

@Shaos Sodit,
I dont know off hand the Gundalm was a 1/100th scale

I would have to check storage and see for you. It mounts ok to his back nothing special.

I had to add stuff to make it look better and ment to be there.

I catn believe

it but thats exaclty why I created him.
See my Ethereal has wings and stands out so

I had to create something that could draw some attention away from him.

With

his suit and shields I can say atleast he will survive a little longer than a Ethereal.


But I will have to see what will happen. He will be shot alot I am shure.

Thanks for the comments.
