Default Tau Anime!

Does Tau look like an anime to you? You know, like the futuristic robot warriors and all? Do you think that anime inspired GW to make Tau look somewhat like them?

in Tau's intro article in WD it was stated that much of the inspiration for the Tau came from Mecha suits in japanese Manga (comics) and Anime.

so rigtfully so the clean and streamlined image is reminiscent of japanese "Mecha" anime :P

there are file size limits though, you could get a photobucket or picturetrail account and link them if thats the case.

Yeah they do look like anime and a lot of people thought of that. There is even a theory that GW based Tau on the Japanese. The armor style, katana looking swords, and the caste system type thingamajigger... Some other stuff too I cant remember but its on Librarium-Online. Oh yeah! Some people thought Tau were dolphins because they were blue and they have blow-holes on their head! ;D

its not a theory ........ they did ^-^, the armour is almost Samurai armour ..... and I would know, add another firing plate on the right side and it would be ^-^.

the battlesuits are Mecha Anime influenced and the tanks are a cobble of influences (I wonder how the designer came up with that shape)

although the dolphin thing is origonal
