Default Finished Female Ethereal

Ok well I finished my converted Female Ethereal. It was real hard cuz I used a Deamonite on mount of Slannash and I had to cut the mout off and Grind the bits off... Then I used putty to cover the rest of the wreckage from the mount and to create the other rocks. Well What do you think? I think it turned out great! Oh, and I'm working on the fluff for the females and why she had blades...That is all I believe.. I'll show more when I have time to take pictures. These are big pics too so they might take a sec to load.

I used a Deamonite on mount of Slannash and I had to cut the mout off and Grind the bits off... Then I used putty to cover the rest of the wreckage from the mount and to create the rock she is sitting on aswell as the other rocks. And yes I plan on making robes aswell... I just haven't figured out how they are going to look... Any suggestions?

U could get them to look like an ethereal! JOKE

But seriously u should try looking at models with robes on the gw site (online store) for inspiration or just search in google. A picture of a monk may be useful when modelling it...

Sorry, but I hate that conversion.

For one thing, we don't even know if female Tau have, shall we say, "traditional" female parts (We know Eldar do, because they made models for them). Secondly, the face and body looks far too daemonic. An Ethereal should look dignified, composed and generally important, not some hedonistic slut on the verge of gutting someone.

The head must go!

Then come the blades and then the feet.
Good on you for trying this new concept, but first we need to decide whether Tau are mammals at all, then come the concept of whether the females look any different. Case in point, traditional female dwarves have beards, and bot male and female dwarves wear leather lunderwear, the females just have it more interesting.

And then put some clothes on it, please?

For a female Slanneshi Ethereal it would do well, possibly one crazed by what they could get the fire warriors to do for the greater good. Bad mental images.
