tau xv88 broadside battlesuit conversion (mecha) - repost -

an experiment to see if i could convert a convincing, and menacing mecha style tau battle suit. given a quick paint job, im more bothered about whether the overall look worked. all coments appreciated and welcome.

repost as the the previous one just dissapeared

very dark and gritty, just how 40k should be, and an original spin on a great model...robotech/gundam anyone :O)

I hope you revisit this piece with a mended hand. The pose and converted bits make this model transcend whatever the Tau are supposed to be. This is just great. This is totally Ghost in the Shell meets Heavy Gear. The only thing that kind of detracts from it is the angle at which you shot it. While the massive gun abstracts it into an interesting piece, it also diminishes it's humanoid form.

great sculpt/mod ironically the paintjob hides your work not some much the technique.. but lack of hue/tone seperation on the model.. hard to see what the model is doing... where he is... (lighting doesn't help either.)
