Default More Tau sculpts from GW?

Found this over on Warseer. Brimstone added more pics to the thread, scroll down to see.

The pathfinders we've seen before but what interests me is the pose of the "O'Shovah" model. It is very different from the one seen at UKGD last fall. It makes me wonder why they doing another pose for something that was a "test piece" and not going to be released. Anyone have any info?

they may have been added a few days ago. But they were at Games Day IIRC and picture of them were already posted here back then.

It's funny because I'd heard of these before and I'm just seeing them for the first time today. It's even funnier that I found the pictures on another website and now someone else has posted them here.

I'm pretty sure that these are models that are just test sculpts from what I've read everywhere I've seen them. I'm thoroughly depressed though. If they were releasing these I'd totally buy each and every single one of these models. :'( *is a sad panda*

I totally agree, they are great sculpts. What I find most curious, like I said above, is that the battlesuit has two different poses. The second one is a completely different pose and has green stuff all over it

Oh yeah, I remember seeing that plasticard/green stuff Farsight suit way back when...oh wait, that's new. :P

What he's saying is there's a new post in the thread with a new model in it that we haven't seen. It's posed differently and is presented in a WIP stage as opposed to a resin cast.

Anyway, I really hope GW isn't retarded and keeps this suit design out of production. I know it's not a Marine model but god damn...

Well... thank you for pointing out what I was clearly not observant enough to notice. I didn't look at the date on the one that was all green stuffed. This gives me a lot of hope that they're actually hard at work on a new Tau Codex where we finally get the love that we deserve. The only thing that scares me is that I might actually have to replace all of my crisis suits if they come out with new crisis suit models... I've got about 40 of them! haha! ;D

by the way, are you saying you dont want them to release this model?


'cause I love it...

I'm just psyched we've got someone good sculpting for us now. If our new plastics look like that when they come out, it was worth the wait these past few years. We haven't had a good-looking model made for us since the Fire Warrior box set (the Space Marines have gone through I think 4Mk's of Veteran models?).

I really like the ejected battlesuit pilot. And O'Shovah looks DYNAMIC. I really enjoy whoever this new guy is.

Hell no, I was being cynical and trying to suggest GW wouldn't because it isn't a Marine. Because apparently whenever a sculptor gets bored and does a Marine it gets put into production right away and released as a collectors or limited edition, but anything else doesn't see the light of day. Like the Eldar jetbike or these Tau models which everyone keeps saying aren't going to be mass produced at all.

And yeah, if all the new suits looked like that I'd buy all new ones, too. And then some. Also, the guy's name is Matt Holland, the one responsible for all the cool Tau models.
