Default Amazing Tau Conversion

You may have already seen this...

http://www.coolminiornot.com/210732

It's not mine, I stumbled upon it at that site. I wants one and am really wondering if I am capable of replicating such a fine conversion.

With all the big things coming out for the other armies I play against, it would be kewl to have something on the table. Lets start with FA: 14 shall we?

Definetely impressive, for sure. It would be nice if its chest wasn't so big, but damn... not like I could do any better.

I am one of those hardliners that is not really into conversion models that are made up of different GW models and the like.

However, this is pretty decent. Better then some of the Tau Titans I have seen. Hopefully the designer will complete the project.

No. What I am saying is that my Air Support has lots of Ground Cadre.

If a Land Raider dies to a rail gun, and no one was around to see it, does the kill point still exist?

That conversion has been here on the boards before, I have not seen or heard anything about the creator continuing the project. But then again I have not really looked.

Here's the Work in Progress thread for that particular conversion so you can follow it along and check out the final painted product.

Very 'Armoured Core' aesthetically.

The back view is better than the front - the legs look a bit bulky, and the cockpit is at a little too much of an angle for my taste.

Definitely looks like it's straight off AC, 'cept for the tank chest.

Personally, I think the pose on the original could've been done much better.
