Default My Tau army for only $20!!! (Using alternative miniatures)

Just take a look at the wunnerfull Tau army I have for only $20!!!

Broadsides:


Single Broadside: TWIN LINK THIS!!!


Crisis Battle Suits:


Single Crisis Battle Suit:


Single Crisis Suit with all attachments and Drone:


Disclaimer: These units may not be painted. These units may not be on the bases yet. The aforementioned $20 purchased the material for 6 crisis battle suits, 4 broadsides, and 16 gun drones. Not sure how much that would be if it were GW, but I know that it's enough to make me chuckle at the exorborant prices everyone else is paying.

Yes, I know they are not tourney legal.
No, there aren't tournaments in my area.
Yes, that burst cannon has an ammo string going to the shoulder.
Yes, the wooden pieces behind the broadsides are the head and foot of the Warhound Titan I am building.
Yes, all of the crisis parts are magnetically swapable.
;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Oh, and all of the waists and arms are movable/posable.

Let's see the GW stuff do that!

IŽd personally cover the cockpits with greenstuff, they are what shows the intende scale I think. But otherwise look nice.

I don't know, could be 'the cutting edge'...

or possibly the old, outdated stuff.

The models comprise of a MW Shockwave, SM1 Tank Destroyer, and JES II missle carrier for the broadsides; Crimson Hawks, Agromech Mods, Sekhmet, and Condor Tank for the Crisis suits; and a Tokogawa Heavy tank turret and Partistan AA tank for the rotary carbine goodness.

GW? What GW? I don't know about you, but the closest GW is in St. Louis, MO. Around here in lonley Kansas, anyone who plays 40K is rabidly invited to play in any games that are going on. Besides, what's so special about playing in a GW? Free stickers if you win? A snack bar? Friendly atmosphere? (I should hope every game store has THAT)
