    [Tau] Crisis Suit Squad Leader PICS

    So this is the squad leader for one of my Crisis Suit Squads. Its my first conversion using plasticard and green stuff.







    He's got a twin-linked Plasma Rifle, and the thing on his other arm is a Squad Leader's Drone Controller. The big wings (I wonder if they're too big) are from a Gundam Wing kit and the upside-down jetpack is supposed to look more dynamic and maneuverable. In my army Crisis Suits "in training" have their jetpacks in the normal out-of-box configuration, and veterans have their jetpacks like this guy's. I just use it for fluff, but I suppose one could use them for Vectored Thrusters.

    The head is meant to look heavier and more protected. I think I need to get better at smoothing greenstuff.

    Anyway, comments welcome.

    The plasmas look cool and the drone-contoller. Not to sure on the head and wings though (never been to fond of the anime-style conversions of Tau).

    Good work though and an really intresting idea.

    lookin good! nice interpretation of the twl-plasmas. I like the change in the jet pack - the origional config was never too exciting. THe wings may be a little too big tho - did you consider the fins off a SM Landspeeder ? Dont worry about the greenstuff - that comes with time. I like what you're doing here - keep up the good work!

    maybe put the jet pack on some sort of swivel so it looks like they can rotate. this would also mean flipping the pack around
