I really like the FW models, but this one looks a little static to me. The FW ones are quite dynamic, unless you were going for that kind of pose. Great model, but I think you could really bring it to life with a more dynamic pose.

I am sorry, but with all the possible positions you could have done with the FW version, you have made him look just like the GW version. :-[

Good suit over all, I'm just a little sad is all.

Sorry about the static pose. I was going for the 'Inexorable march forward, guns blazing' thing and I could'nt pull it off with the suit. I kind of wanted it laying back on one leg as though it was just shelling out the beatings. I'm new to this Tau stuff guys, first try, I learned something, so maybe the next one will be better.I may try clipping out a missile from the pod and drill it out to look like its in the middle of shooting. What do you folks think?

good idea about drilling out a missile or two, never thought of that myself

i like it. I am instantly reminded of Mech Warrior. ^^ I like the pose, i think you pulled the "I'm gona crush you," pose off nicely.

Alas, I am discovered. I'm a Battletech player from waaaaaay back. I started that hobby in 1989 and built up a substantial number of mini's for the game. Looks like it still comes out in my GW hobby. I think I'm going to have to change that pic, it looks to washed out for me. I must have lightend it up to much in Photoshop when I was cleaning it up. Its actually boltgun that greyed out when I clearcoated it. I get a lot of compliments on my simple, but striking paint skeam (sp?) The suits are dark grey with Sa Cea sept marking to break it up. If enough intrest is shown, I'll put up more of the army.
