Re: Ironsky's desert operations Cadre

Oh wow, that Shotgun really turned out :D I used silicon shapers for the first time during this project, and I really wish I'd got some years ago! You and me both my blue brother. Loving them... Thanks Tael ! Yeah they make it so much easier to get the look you want, rather than an approximation th...

Re: El'mo's Chocochip Astra Milliwhatnow

Very nice! I really like the view screen detailing, and how consistently all your vehicles tie in together. Looking back over your old posts - where did you get/how did you make the artillery tractor?

Re: Do any of the human heads look alright when converted to Tau?

Image
This is the Cadian Sargent's head, with hair, nose and ears/comm. removed and a nasal slit carved in. It could probably do with a bit more work but I think its passable?

Re: Ironsky's desert operations Cadre-WIP Kroot update

Hefty slabs of greenstuff applied, but the majority of the Kroot are ready for paint now (Kroot Ox need a bit more work). I used silicon shapers for the first time during this project, and I really wish I'd got some years ago! Below are some proud modelling moments and overcome difficulties incurred...

Re: Kroot Cavalry (suggestions appreciated)

Try a google image search for kroot cold one riders. This was a conversion I stumbled on a few years ago, but never got round to making; it seems exactly what you're thinking of!

Re: Elsy'eir Sept Project Log

All looking good so far! Unusual colour scheme with the muted bronze and vivid blue. Very striking!

Is that a CIB conversion I see in there?

Re: Ironsky's desert operations Cadre

... A potential is rotating the hand grip onto a lower 'cartridge barrel' as the pump-action handle? This way you have one barrel at the right inline with chamber. and still retain the grip hand. I can see that working, but not necessarily with the way I'm planning on posing it: https://i.imgur.com...

Re: Hoob's Tash'var Cadre project log

That is a nice de-cloaking effect!

I'm never sure with stealth suits. The optics ball bit should denote rank, but that does tend to look a bit silly. Half the helmet could be overkill, but it might just work...

The intention is for it to have a reversible axe function, so short of remodelling the barrels to be narrower I think that would be too wide for a Kroot hand to grip. I will give it a go though...

A few pictures of very limited progress on the Kroot. https://i.imgur.com/l2qBPio.jpg These models were quite battered, so have taken some work to restore, I've also added some small extras in places https://i.imgur.com/9GXwiML.jpg and am currently toying with a shotgun varient https://i.imgur.com/m...

Re: 3D print extra parts: Stormsurge, Riptide, Piranha, ...

... @Ironsky Thanks. Actually, when I searched solutions to convert BC to StealthBC, your thread inspired me at first, but with my poor skills at GS and the amount of guns to make, I go to 3D instead. You are right, the BC on tanks (and maybe piranha and flyers too) are bigger. So I will post some ...

Re: 3D print extra parts: Stormsurge, Riptide, Piranha, ...

Nice Idea! I've been trying some thing similar with larger burst cannons on tanks https://i.imgur.com/X1SwER7.jpg and Riptides https://i.imgur.com/sMM7iOk.jpg These take some time to produce, but if you had the time they should be easy enough to scale up from your crisis design?
