Hope you like him, his made from an Xv89 combined with Xv8, and Farsight parts.

Not bad. Not bad at all. The painting is a little thick in places, but other than that you have a fine table top mini.

Can some on tell me what an Xv89 is?

I like the fact he doesn't have those ridiculously thin legs, like most crisis suits
he should've had a weapon in his right hand as well though...

but still, nice work!

everything about it looks great but i have but one criticism the pose is not very dynamic........if you intended it to be that way its a perfect pose for modeling a little O'shova pilot next to it.

Those were my thoughts exactly.

The blue on that crescent shaped bit of the sword looks a little odd imo, and as others have already pointed out the pose is somewhat static. This could be remedied by modelling a pilot next to it, but I always thought that an unmanned battlesuit would be kneeling, as otherwise without power it would probably just fall over. Plus it's a long way to jump from that door to the floor.... But that's just what I think. Anyway, here's a link to a GW rendering of a battlesuit pilot - http://uk.games-workshop.com/tau/wargear/2/. Hope it helps.
