Default Stealth Blisters

Hi. Small question.

Are the commander blister packs for the Stealth suits any different from the Stealth suits that come in blisters of two? Because it would be cheaper to get an extra guy along with your commander that you can paint differently.

The model is posed differently, but it's nothing you can't do to a normal stealth with five minutes and an exato (or hacksaw, those metals are tough). The only "bonus" to the Shas'Vre blister is the Shield Drone... which you can make by sticking two antenae on a gun drone...

So basically, we are paying 5 extra dollars for a shield drone and a different mold? Hmm...

Eh/ actually the shas is way different, he's got a markerlight and some extra lenses on the helm, his burst cann. is cooler and his armour seems a little longer and more narrow.

How can u convert the Shas'vre to Shas'ui? Cause I think I bought a Shas'vre by mistake.* :-[* Or can you just say it is a Shas'ui in your army list? Cause I like the pose.

Noone's going to care, you can field it as either. Someone complains, put the burst cannon to good use.

That's good. I always liked the pose too.

The leader has a different pose, a different helmet, and a markerlight attached, along with a shield drone.

You don't exactly need it unless your planning on using a markerlight under WYSIWYG rules.

That, and shield drones are pretty rare.

Just got mine. The most noticable thing I have found that is irratating is that the 'vre has his sept circle on the right shoulder rather than the left one. Myself, I would rather have had much more dynamic poses all the way around. Don't really like the burstcannon resting on hip like a baby pose.

also I'm considering jumpin mine on flight bases, so I will have to think long and hard on repositioning the legs, arms. I'm affraid that with the current hip resting weapon pose the figures will look like something from "queer eye for the straight guy" if flying

Maybe I'll fashion them a cape... :P

I thought about bending the legs back, since they all seem to be looking to the side pose them on bases as if they were straffing or falling back and firing. Also, the models are mirrored so some are exactly the same only reversed I don't know if the shas are the same.
