I think I've said this before a few times, but if all Crisis Suits looked that good, I'd play Tau.

Seriously, it looks awesome. Great job.

Man, I really like that. That is quite an excellent piece. I also especially like the awesome conversion.

Thanks guys.

I'm afraid those pics are the best I can do as I'm using the webcam on my MacBook.
If I use the digital camera the pics are just too blurry. (Even with macro)

[hr]

The inspiration for the conversion is obviously Tael's XV 8 urban/stealth suit.
My idea was do it using only Tau bits, which I managed.
The pose was rather hard, I was trying to look for something that looked menacing, confident and cool without being a massive action pose. I eventually decided to have him standing on the edge of a blasted street section, just surveying the battlefield. The pose has just the right air, imo, of menace and calm self-assurance that it needs to show that this guy is a commander, not just some grunt with fancy wargear. The lowered weapons also show this in a way, as they show he's prepared for battle, but confident in his surroundings.
