Default Tau Gue'vesa Baneblade Idea - Photoshopped

Here's my idea:

What do you guys think?

Apart from the Tau not really being able to get such things (Fluff wise), it would definitely lead to some interesting games.

I meant for this to be used as a gue'vesa (Guard aligned with Tau) unit

I realized what you meant, but Gue'vesas weren't so much engineers and leaders, but low ranking Guardsmen, without leadership to set them straight, forgotten on some distant planet who feel the Emperor have left them. The wouldn't have most of the equipment they use to or would normally have; as they're being used on front-lines else where.

But as a model it would be pretty impressive.

I'm not quite sure what your trying to say, but the tau seem capable of replicating most of the Imperiums technology as that is how they've been equipping the Gue'vesa. And it is possible that some Baneblades may have been deserted in the Damoclese Crusade thus the Tau could get a hold of a template to work of off. So the Tau Baneblade is very much possible (besides it's rumored that FW is working on at least rules for such a unit).

It looks very good, but just a few suggestions: change the sms to burst cannons, seems more likely and maybe add some of the sensor things on the fish sprue. Im sure i know nothing about fluff but it seems that this would work, so long as you have a large gue'vesa part of your army (maybe another converted tank too) otherwise it would just look strange

I really want someone to try making a baneblade into a hovertank. ;D Maybe it'll be more tau-ish?

I think that looks pretty good, too bad it's not likely to happen.

If you want something fluffy, you should try Gue'Vesa Defence Laser. Since most of Gue'vesa employed to man those big gun.
