I have seen a couple Tau Crisis Battlesuits that look like they came out of an anime movie and I got a cool idea for one. I don't know if anyone has seen any of the Macross anime movies but they have mobile battlesuits that can launch a whole lot of missiles, like 20 to 30 and they all swarm out the back. I think it would be cool to make a Tau Crisis battlesuit look like that, having a whole bunch of missiles or rockets shooting out from its back.

Just make em look pretty extreme, and make sure to use the right colours...
Manga, anime, hentai or whatever people prefer to call it, sometimes has the most crazy colour shemes.
Have any of you ever watched evangelion, the sakuran diarys or something like that, that could be a source of ideas...
They got some prette extreme stuff there...

Hey how about converting your gun drones so they look like the robot things in "akira"

This sounds really cool, can you tell me more about how your coming with it. I am actually doing a conversion for my Tau commander as a centerpiece.
This is what I did:

2 Hammerhead 3 prong antennaes - attached these to his backpack over both shoulders so they look like fins kinda

Took the multitracker and target lock and melded them together to make his head.
Added head antennae to the target lock side to frame up head.

Cut of right forearm and attached smart missile pod from broadside. Made arm point striaght away so it looks like my man is aiming the missiles. Removed the 4 lower missiles and attached 1/2 the barrel of a plasma gun and added plasma gun bits to the bottom of the missile pod. So it looks like a combimissile pod/plasma rifle.

Used the Metal left arm of Shas'o Whats his name with the dawn blade. I carved out the blade from the hand so all I had was the hand and I have made a banner pole to fit into it from copper tubing. At the top of the banner pole I placed the top of the dawn blade to decorate it.

Carved up the legs so it looks as if hes leaning forward

Used Broadside feet instead of crisis suit feet for better balance and they look a little more detailed to me.

Those are a couple things Im doing

I would say get some smart missile pods from the broadsides and hook them up about the body and use the ol space marine missile trick. Cut some of the missiles off and drill a little hole. Then take a space marine missile the little one and attach it to some sturdy wiring that can be bent. Glue the wiring into the small drilled hole in the missile pod and string the wiring with some cotton. Configure the wiring so it takes on a curved lines kinda like sidewinder missiles and then attach the missiles from the space marine sprue. Itll look just like those mechs from Robotech shooting off their payload. Good luck.
