Default A little conversion idea.

Yeah, my creative side seems to be my downfall. My Tau army is horribly mis-matched with all the many Battlesuit conversions I've done...

Anyway, my idea was to swap out the normal Battlesuit legs (and possibly the "pelvic" portion) with those of an IG Sentinel.

The idea popped into my head as I've become interested in starting a Guard army. But I'm more of a "Screw the Emperor" type, so I was going to play off of the idea of Guard joining the Tau, but moreso than just Human Auxiliaries. Other ideas I've had are Leman Russ tanks with Ion Cannons, and Basilisks with Railguns.

It would work ok... just the suit would end up walking like a bird and you'd eventually get a break at the ankles if you don't pin it, probably...

Basilisks with railguns sounds awesome!

I think it would look mentally crippling

I recently got a Basilisk that's missing one side of the tread for half price. I am considering converting it into a floating Tau vehicle, although I just can't see how to make Imp Guard stuff seem Tau-ish. That's kinda the same thing...

I guess the legs would be much too big for a Crisis, but that`s just me...

You know, it might be cool to make a heavy Tau walker using that kit and the legs from a Chaos Defiler. Count it as a Hammerhead w/ Railgun and name it the Alaskan King Crab. Then it really will be the Deadliest Catch...
