Im pretty sure this is the best looking tau model I have ever seen. And Im reasonably sure its a broadside, but I cant find a larger image.

So I need to confirm what unit this is, and figure out how to make the proper conversions to simulate this pose. If anyone could help that would be awesome.

That appears to be the XV84 SMS variant Forgeworld Crisis suit, with metal XV88 broadside railguns on the arms.

The pose can be done as the FW suits are full posable, and the metal railer's would not have been hard to attach.

Here is a link to Bruno Rizzo's army, from where your Broadside picture comes from. The Broadside is here, but you should check all of it out.

It's the XV81 model from Forgeworld, with standard Broadside Railguns on the arms - evidently used to represent a Broadside Battlesuit.

See links.

I know this off subject abit, but it does involve the picture of Bruno Rizzo's XV88 from the GW website, someone is using his picture to sell a Hunter Cadre on ebay, I don't now about you guys but I would find that upsetting, someone using my photo to sell something on ebay, I sure hope the guys bidding on it realize there not getting whats in the picture.

Actually, I spotted that auction earlier today, though it's quite clear that it's just for the Hunter Cadre Deal in the item title/description. I mean even GW doesn't have a picture for it, they just have a picture of a broadside IIRC.

Here it is: Linky
