PostSubject: Tau Conversions   Thu Oct 18, 2007 5:45 pm

I was wondering what are some easy conversions which make reposinting rare parts on tau suits and drones? I suppose also the tanks and the Infantry as well since Im going to be adding some more of them as well for apoclose type battles.

reposinting? Do you mean repositioning? Or representing?

This is what I was talking about with the English Language comment!

Let us know and maybe we can help.

In my opinion, if you don't have them, then don't field them.

Ok got a few ideas so far. The simplest one I know of is the pulse carbine to sniper looking gun which looks cool. only qustion I have on it is what are the cables(have some models someone else made and I am trying to copy them on the guns) the hardest part I am haveing is trying to figure out a way to make my suits look differnt from standard old suits and look cool. any ideas?

Give them all spikes or close combat weapons for flavor, or something like that. The cables are actually tyranid bits that my bro. used from gun gaunts.

some general conversion advice is to keep it simple. Also keep it within the flavor of the army. If you stray too far you really do need a ton of talent to pull it off.

You havent seen my hammer on my tau commander the point of adding spikes and such is to show that I have beaten long odds to win so wierd close combat battles. They just add to my story also(still working on it will come into play more in apoc then anywere else) The hardest part will be getting conversions for my stealth suits and tanks I draw a blank on them

I understand having conversions to fit with a back story. But making your models actually look good has next to nothing to do with a back story.

If a conversion relies on a backstory to work, then the conversion is probably not too good.

Not that I know yours is good or not.

Again, I was just offering an observation. Take it or leave it.

I have done a fair bit of converting in my time though. Also, if you make a post asking for advice, when you get advice I'd try not to act defensively as a first reaction.

Get some pics up of your conversions so that we can help some more.
