It was Scizor. Pathfinder armour, to be specific. Did a pretty darn good job of it too. Its really, really, really buried in the Hobby section.

I would love to see someone go to a convention with a firewarrior or pathfinder costume on. I've seen quite a few space marines, but c'mon, we need some variety at conventions. The only thing I would see getting in the way is the 4 finger thing... I guess you could just put two fingers in one of the glove slots, but that would be pretty uncomfortable after awhile.

The only thing I see getting in the way is the ANKLES! C'mon people, have you looked at the feet of the Tau?

They have cloven hooves. Look at any firewarrior and you'll see why you'd either have to do this standing on your toes (good balance anyone?) reconstructive surgery, or being really, really creative.

< Tau bend at the knee
> And bend again at the bottom of the ankle to the hoof.

They have what seems to be a three-toed boot- two toes that touch the ground and what looks to be a 'thumb'. From what I can determine, the 'footprint' of the Toe is as big as a Tau's closed fist.

Unless you can accomplish this, I would rather spend your effort trying to recreate Eldar armor, or go as a Gue'vesa, or not call it 'done' or 'perfect.'

And all this is from looking at a Tau firewarrior mini standing about a foot away from my face.

High heels enclosed. It is standing on toes but still with shoes. A little bit of Cardboard or wood or whatever and you have a hoof.

Ok if you have a sweet set of awesome looking fire warrior armor will people care about the hooves and having 3 fingers? NO.
