    Tau conversion

    Now, please don't flame me down here because looking at other forums, the idea of chaos tau gets a lot of attack fluffwise. I'm more doing it for the look of things though as well as the fact i already have tau models and dont ever use them.

    The reason I'm posting this is that i need some help for ideas for the conversions. I'm doing a khorne themed force, with battle suits for terminators. Hammerheads for preds, broadsides for dreads. Farsight will be a lord in terminator armour to lead the force.

    I need conversion tips to turn one of the hammerheads into a dakka pred. The heavy bolters are easy, but i have no idea how to do an autocannon. the imperial ones are too small for the tank.

    The next one is building a reaper autocannon for the terminator/ battlesuits.

    and finally farsight. open to ideas for him and willing to consider all options.

    thanks for ready this essay! please dont flame the idea, I'm not looking for fluff advice just conversions.

    Perhaps this will help those of you who don't like this idea for fluff reasons. The army isn't tau who have been corrupted by chaos, its the suits and tanks who have been salvaged and possesed by deamons.

    Dakka Pred - I'm wondering if you investigate the Forge World options for the Hammerheads. They sell a conversion kit enabling you to run a Burst Cannon equipped Hammerhead - like so;


    For the Auto-cannon... Hmm, just use a bits-order website to grab a few?

    If you don't want to just use out of the box bits, though, I'm guessing the only real way to do things would be to start stocking up on plasticard (also known as Sheet Styrene). You can buy it in sheets, rods, tubes, specific girder shapes... You just have to find someone who stocks a good range! Then you can just build whatever you want from it.

    Sorry I couldn't be or any further help. Maybe some others have better ideas.
