Default Because i got bored....

Decided to do myself a concept of a kroot Crisis suit, a one off i intend to hopefully model when my green stuff skills progress pass that of a baby with play-doe.

Fluff wise its Tau playing at Frankenstein, kidnapping and genetically altering a poor kroot to turn him into a more effecient Nid killer.



Not to mention i like Kroot, but don't like that they die so fast! ;D

It looks a bit more like advanced body armor than a battlesuit. Make it a bit bulkier. Even Stealthsuits look a bit larger.

No jump pack, so no need for a sizeable power unit, no ranged weapons (plus no crappy Tau eyesight) so no need for sensor units.

Basically its a suit of medievil armour with a few bells and whistles.

Not to mention fluff wise this is totally unsanctioned by the Ethereals so the Scientist who's done it hasn't had access to all the gear to make it beefed up.

(ok ok, i admit due to my poor green stuffing ability i have kept it simple and clean. : )

I think your idea is quite well thought out, perhaps you'll want to go about converting from a slightly different perspective- ie get the body of an Imperial assassin or perhaps a Necromunda Spyrer (?), use it for the main bulk of the model and graft on a kroot head and some midly adapted limbs (longer..) etc.

This might allow you to keep the green stuff usage to a minimum instead of building around a plastic kroot (unless you really need to keep the original Kroot pose)

Just my 2c

Tau would never kidnap and genetically alter another being let alone a kroot unit. Tau and kroot are allies the mere thought that they would kidnap and genetically alter one and another is ludicrous. I would understand if they honoured one with a crisis suit (even though that would probably never happen either.) ???
