Default Starship Troopers

In relation to my Tau armylist (here: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=32561.0), I've had a go at building figures of how I envision the power suits from Starship Troopers. 'Course, everyone will see them differently so they are certainly not exact to the story. But, I've tried my best, working with the parts available to me, taking inspiration from the books and Mongoose's version of the suits, and various bits of artwork I've seen around the 'net.

So here we have Cpl. Rico and Pvt. Flores, both armed with a flamer and missile pod!

They're damn cool! The colour's perfect and the dark joints in the armour make them look so chunky! I'm well impressed with the markings too, are they transfers or freehand?

Cool. Much better than mongoose's effort.

Those are perfect! Completely 100% perfect.

I want them. Now...

Keep us updated on the progress, and I can't wait to see the lieutenant when he's done...

I agree with everyone else on everything but I must say. That colour looks fantastic! Very well pulled off! I want to paint some stuff up in that colour scheme now. ;D ;D

Looks cool, looks like you used the same MP bits I used for my commander's XV-24 suit. Just put 'em sideways. I like. I may put them that way on the other XV-2 suits I do up for a bodyguard. You gonna use those as "counts as" XV-8s?

Can you put up some from behind pics, too? Just wanna see what changes you made from the other angle.
