this is a conversion from what looks like a battletech timberwolf model and a HH, its VDR so I'm really not in favour of it and it would most probably cost more points than its worth by far.

I repeat, this is not a GW model (although that should be obvious :P).

yeah ur right, i did a little research and i think he converted it with the hammerhead and a madcat mechwarrior figure.... it's VDR with the bits but a one of a kind model

i think it looks cool, but not really worth the buy... just buy the hammerhead and try to find the leg bits on ebay... well... i gues thats the price it'd come out to be with paints prime and stuff....

anyways thats the new info...

VDR isnt worth it IMO anyway and the money would be better spent on more crisis and HH.

but the people who build these and try to sell them, do they ever make money? it doesnt seem like it to me, most of the stuff on there is really bad.

It's a freakin awesome model imo!!
too bad I'd never use it, it just sucks from the look of the description of the weapons.

PLUS it was copied from mechwarrior, so no. Now I at least know what my next conversion project will be......

to be perfectly honest, i dont really like the whole 'titan'-esque walker. much rather the flyer models anytime.

mantas, barracudas, tigersharks, even the humble orca. awesome models.

technically Tau dont use Titans as antigrav technlogy allows us to mount weapons on flyers thus providing a much better support platform for the Tau style of warfare than a titan could ever hope to be (see barracuda and manta)

true, but what about a larger battlesuit? definetyly in keeping with the skimmer/jetpack idea though. Who woud walk when they could fly?

who would make a larger battlesuit when you can have a larger skimmer with less weak joints and more armour ;D

absolutely true. Besides, with vdr the suit would have to have an armor value. Now that I think it over, NO. Don't like the idea no more.
