So I know a lot of you play starcraft,just for the sheer joy of it i was just thinking how cool it would look to take some Tau and some power armour and make a zealot or high templar or somethin'..i know I'm gonna use a tau for the actual 'toss,i jus' dunno what to use to make the armour,and I'm sure getting the legs to bend backwards is gonna be a pain...any suggestions?
Before you all start lighting torches and forming angry mobs,i just wanna make it clear i have NO intention or desire to actualy play a game with it,it would just be a nifty model ^_^
Get some Tyranids, make them into Zerg.
That would really do good, cos you could just say its another hivefleet...
The Eldar are practicaly the protoss. Not in looks but in fluff. but still a cool model, but watch out their HIDEOUS!!!*screams & throws arms around in the air. Now if you'll excuse me ladies & germs. *goes & lights torch* :ph34r:

You might be able to clip the legs of the Tau since they have "hoofs" for feet, and flip them around backwards. I don't own any tau miniatures so I can't visualize how well that'd work. As far as the heads, you know how the Protoss have elongated heads like the Eldar helms, use one of those for the head and make sure the limbs are a little bit longer. Maybe use some green stuff and then attach lightning claws on the end of the fists to make the "blades" that the basic Protoss warrior uses. Good luck with it, post some pics if you get anything going!
"Can you put that in a memo and title it '***** I already know!'"
Church: "Ok, so we're agreed? You first!"
Sarge: "Get on with it, Griff."
Griff: "I'd just like everyone to know: that I suck."
Griff: "And that I'm a girl..."
Church: "What else?"
Griff: "And I like ribbons in my hair, and I want to kiss all the boys."
Sarge: "This has to be the best surrender of all time."
I agree with t he zerg comment. They are way cooler then protoss. And way easier to convert as guants are pretty much huge zerglings.

At first I thought it sounded incredibly dull converting 'nids into 'nids... I mean 'nids into zerg. They are so similar all you need is to swap their names. But then I thought about Ultralisks and Overlords in 40K, now THAT would look cool. The Overlord could be a huge flying 'transport creature', that could take a lot of damage but not hurt anyone. And it should be a synapse creature with synapse range of 24"!
Has anybody read the manual for Starcraft? Really kickass fluff!
And for the Protos, I think you could get legs with backward knees from the tyranid gaunts.. Good luck!

Well, the tau already look just like the protoss. The codex color scheme's yellow looks like it doesn't it? the faces are similar (sand off or fill in the mouths, though) and blue, like the protoss. I'm not sure about the vehicles, though.
You should make protoss using bits of both tau and eldar, with large amounts of greenstuff ^_^
I'm sure you could use some beastmen legs for the reverse effect the protoss have. Plus don't forget the giant braid that comes out the back of the zealots head.

SPAWN MORE OVERLORDS
YOU REQUIRE MORE VESPENE GAS
My contribution to this topic. :lol:
Ok, seriously, I think a Protoss would look ownage on the tabletop. Also, TzeentchPlayer, they don't have a braid, they have a huge mass of wires, IIRC. They still look mean, mind you. :ph34r:
