Default Do you think converting my own jump infanty to replace vespids would work?

I'm thinking of maybe using a Firewarrior with some jump jets and a mod weapon to replace the Vespids. But I'm wondering will this affect the hole "join the greater good" image the tau hold by having auxiliaries

yeah i would go for it, maybe try using the old style SM jump packs, they are small and could easily be made to look tau ish, stuick them on some fire warriors/ strange things and you have jump warriors ;D

Next time just put yes or no, without the opinions. I marked yes but I personally like the vespid models so :P. Their's nothing wrong with conversions, so get to it.

I'm not denying that the Vespids can be one of the ugliest units in the game, but they are something of an aquired taste - certainly not as bad as Warp Beasts or other mushes make of plastic and metal.

i would go for it, whatever floats your boat.

then again, i would probably say that if you were going to convert chaos tau with wings, just because i like cool conversion....

i would say mail order the xv15 jump packs, they are made for it
