Ok, I have started a new Mech Tau army, and need to make my two Disruption Pod Devilfish more than just a standard APC with a small electronic toy attached. I have a disruptive grey camo scheme in keeping with the main army planned, but was wondering about suggestions for making it look a little more hi-tech, without making it look too 'overdone'.
Currently I am thinking of adding a Crisi suit antenna to each engine section as a representation of a field-vane on each engine, masking the sound and breaking up the outline of bits of the tank away form the main body. I only ever use one antenna on my Crisis suits anyway, mimicing the Firewarriors, so i have no shortage of these.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
*turns on shield generator* Yes, I know this is effectively a beltaed double post but... As no one has answered my question I seduce you with this offering
Feedback on that and suggestions about the Stealthfish would be very useful .
Thankyou in advance.
Edit: I got rid of the left (from your pov) antenna cos i did not like it... back to the single antenna, possibly a sensor pod... update soon).

i couldnt help but think about another post that i saw recently. its eldar but it shows to good effect what can be done with card if you have the will to work with it. I think you could get a very unique effect on you vehicles by useing card to make more fins and decals and such. nice pic too!
the 'fish sound good but I think the XV8 is illegal. I don't have my codex on me but i'm pretty sure you need 2 weapon systems and 1 support system. Other than that it looks good
The drone is modelled onto the base - the entire model counts as a Shas'El with Missile Pod, plasma, Multi and HW Target Array.
It's part of my 'peripheral weapons systems' Battlesuit conversions - saving lives by not carrying explosives next to our pilots .
PS - Painting has started on the suit - Tank pictures up soon (may was well turn thing into the Army WIP thread).

That looks so cool... can you post a finished one?
i completly agree tis awsome, cant wait to see some pics!
Well, I will likely request that this be moved to paitning as i have now solved my modelling crisis (Using the Stealthsuit positional relay model as a Disruption pod as a cop out).
But as demanded, the finished Shas'El, within the month I will have my pair of Heavy Drone crisis suits (for twin linked missile pods) finished. The drone is not yet glued to the base as I am getting ahold of some thin wire as the flight base stem obscures the battlesuit too much IMO.
Also, the finished Devilfish:
More to come... still got the rest of the battleforce to paint .
