now this I HAVE to see.... Now that I'm thinking about it, why doesn't GW just make the stealth suits out of aerogel or something, or even clear plastic.... at least have the option of buying actual clear (clear plastic or EQ) or semi-cloudy-clear (aerogel or EQ) *EDIT* On second thought, aerogel is expensive, and being that it is 99.8% air, making it the world's lightest solid, your suits would blow off of the table quite easily

stealthsuits made out of aerogel is probably the worst idea i've ever heard. from wikipedia:

"Pressing softly does not leave any mark on the gel; pressing harder will leave a permanent dimple. Pressing hard enough will cause a catastrophic breakdown in the sparse structure causing it to shatter like glass, a property known as friability."

would you like to entertain the possibility that, should you at any time drop your stealthsuits, it will burst into shards and splinters like a well prepared flechette discharger?

Or you could buy some models then make a mould for each one, making sure to buy a real model for each plastic to escape copywright, then make then out of clear resin or something. I saw a couple of them one time in the Hobby section area. They look great.

True, if you were to drop an aerogel stealthsuit, you wouldn't have much fun that day... but an aerogel suit would look so cool...

...And be very expensive. Aerogel isn't exactly cheap.

clear stealth would be cool but it would remove the purpose of painting. It'd be a unit u could just buy and base.

I have seen the White Dwarf this guy is talking about...specially the picture.

The suit itself isn't clear. It's one of the new stealth suits with no targeting system... but get this: It's painted in such a way that when you look at it from an angle, it replicates perfectly the wall it's standing in front of.

It's like taking a photgraph and imposing part of the photograph on your stealth suit so it blends in. Not clear or anything...

Practical purposes it won't be stealthy on the table, just in the diorama it's set with. The base even has a 'notch' where it slids back into the base at the right angle to get the right stealth effect.

All in all, nifty, and it took over ten hours to paint.
