Default Shas'O Conversion painted


Here is the finished conversion of my Shas'O. Ive posted the model unpainted previously, but after seeing some recent conversion work on the forums, I re-converted the hips and jump-pack, then painted it. The base is not complete, and is minimal for game LOS purposes. I have an enhanced base for display in the works also thats not so conducive to LOS play, but looks much better.

This is also the first time Ive done a lot of lighting effects on the model and Im pretty happy with it. Ive done no cammo pattern on the suit compared to my other models since its a commander that I wanted all white simular to shadowsun.

That looks great! I really like the conversion work, but it feels slightly incomplete to me. For some reason my mind wants to see some wings on him, not really big ones, just something. Of course that's only when looking at a front view, the side shots with the antennae help diffuse my want for wings.

Other than that though, I think you did an excellent job with converting and of course the painting looks great too.

Too Gundamy for me. Yeesh.

I like the paint job though. Just not the model this time. :-\

well thats your taste. Me personally I think the standard legs suck it hard. Theres so many reasons they suck I dont mind kit bashing some others on there for a commander figure. All the rest of the conversion is from other tau model pieces and I think it makes for a much more dramatic figure that still fits with the look of the army. Thanks for the complament on the painting though

The painting is ace, and the conversion too. Top notch.

The paint job is awesome, as is the pose. I, too, feel it's a bit too Gundam, but it is still quite impressive.

The reason why it's so gundam-ey is that it has gundam legs!

I love it!
