Default Tau Android

Painted up that Tau Android I made earlier.
Man I just love the idea and the little guy.

Hey it was also tough finding a look and color to paint him that would make him look like an Android and a Tau toghether.

I still cant decide on what color to paint his helmet so my wife said gold so I did.

Well let me know what you think please?

very nice. The gold really does make it look more robotic.

Oh thank you.

I will let my wife know that you liked the gold, she picked it.
I think silver would not have been noble enough for tau.
Yes it shows robotic but i think tau would have C3po's running around but not the cheaper looking silver ones.

So she said to do gold.

So again Great thanks alot

wow, hard conversion? A whole team of those would just look awsome!

Planning on any rules for it or was it just a spur of the moment conversion?

The rules for them are already out.
Ont he GW website I believe you can still get them?
There the human Auxiliaries or Gue'vesa.

But I just thought of a new conversion for them.So instead of taking humans take Androids and they seem very Tauish?
Right?
Or no?

But ya you can take them legally as Gue'vesa right now.

The conversion was not really that hard medium in difficulty and way better than cutting metal atleast.
So not bad.

Necron and Fire Warrior parts is all you need.

Thanks alot for the input and feedback.

There's no reason you couldn't use them as normal Tau...

I lightned it a bit for you.

Android

I understand that you want to use these in place of Gue'Vesa, but I would think that if the Tau actually made androids in their fluff they would make them to emphasize a trait that they were lacking. I like the consept though. If I were to make a 'droid that was designed by Tau I would make one with arms and guns, but it would look like a miniature version of their space stations. Disks stacked verticaly and connected with sweeping struts.

A heavy gun drone with a GS cone on the bottom pointing down to a normal gun drone with another cone pointing down from it. Guns mounted on the under side of the heavy drone rim and arms mounted on the underside of the normal drone rim. Over all this would be a little larger than a Gue'Vesa, but if a smaller version could be made then I would.

Very cool. Nice paint scheme too. Perhaps it could be an Ethereals assistant.
