Heres wot i was thinkin...

I reckon it would be cool to have a model in some form of chair.
So i am thinkin of creating one.

My current ideas is that the chair will use jetpack technology to float (bit liek Professor Xavier from Xmen) with some form of weapon attached... most likely missile pod ocs that wud look cool to have missiles popping out of a chair...

I think the person should either be an Aun'o or Shas'o but im not sure...
Opinnions please!...

The idea is more of a floating chair not a wheel chair to show his importance to the Tau that he is not expected to stand...

Plus that would allow for an ethereal with good weaponry...

I think it would be better if he were being held up by firewarriors or something. Like on a throne (similar to the slaan), that would be cool.

I don't think having them sit down would be a good idea, you've seen the image in the codex of an honourblade armed ethereal with a jetpack? The one with the Tau dropping out of the ships. Try for tomething like that, it's farily hard to fight when you are sitting down.

Special charcters are meant to show an aspect of the race, Aun'shi displays acting for the greater good, he is well past retirement age but still fights. Farsight shows a high level Tau that has gotten drawn away from the conept of the greater good.
What would yours exemplify?

Hunter out.

power over the race and the ethereals dominance....
It was only an idea anyways as i was thinking of doing something different to the currently lame ethereals.
The intention was for him not having to fight just merely launch some missiles ones in a while...
Regarding the jet pack idea, i did think of doin this but its not that original and i wanted to do something differrent.

If its a conversion you're after...
An etheral on a deck chair with chilly bin full of Cokes, carefully positioned behind a 20 foot high wall.
You could make another for a Space marine Librarian when playing Eldar.
