Hi I was wondering if you think the dreadknights might be good for converting as hammerheads?
I was thinking of using most of the model for it.
Add the "side thrusters" at the back from the hammerhead (the ones you can take off and turn turn etc)
And cut them down and use as their jump pack, maybe put the railgun on his arm. (Don't know if he should have it as a rifle like puttig together the ioncanno+railgun or on one arm with just the railgun)
Greenstuffing all the names on the armor for a cleaner look.
And I had the idea to use the upper body + head of a stealth suit to use as the main head in the center of the dreadknight. Just about where the terminator head is between those cables or whatever it is. And I will not use the terminator armor in the center/torso will probably use some plastic cards and fit it to a nice look.
And the disruption pod upgrade should be looking like a shield generator like O'shova or something! On the armor/shoulder dunno!..
Duno maybe have a tau model mechanic at the ground on the base, repairing something?
What are your ideas?
I have already converted two of my XV88s, I used their railguns on their shoulders and made them as one gun and they are holding them in their hands. And it looks bad ass! Rambo!
Sorry for bad english/spelling etc..
~shrug~ I'm not convinced that a walker could be modeled to look fast enough to move 12" a turn. Separately from that, I really don't think the dreadknight model is anywhere near tau-ish enough to use for this purpose.

Ok, well I dont like the suits we have. Reminds me of the car Volvo or something.. And the idea of the hammerdreadnight it is to be a "big meka jumpsuit" I guess I need tons of thrusters then..
Its rather obvious, but just incase you haven't considered it.... It'd be much better to base them on a gundam suit. I've seen a couple of tau armies done like that and they look brilliant.

The Dreadknight looks silly. And it doesn't look like a Tau machine, of any kind, much less a tank. It just doesn't fit the Tau combat doctrine or aesthetic. In addition, the Dreadknight looks silly.
