Lots of stuff... Let's see, for the dude himself it was a Breacher, but with a Pathfinder's arm (the one holding the antenna) and epoxy for the torso. Also I shaved the T'au symbol off of a Breacher pauldron and put it onto his epoxy chest for authenticity.
The platform was more complicated. The core is an armor plate from a Commander, the Target-Lock-looking thing at the top was from... I THINK part of a Marker Drone, while the antenna is a normal Drone antenna. There are Breacher shoulder pads on the sides, to give it more width and volume, and a Markerlight from a Marker Drone to indicate the model's equipment loadout. On the reverse side of the Commander's chestpiece, I also glued a shaved-up Breacher backpack to make it look like the dude is interacting with a console, but you can't see that in the pictures. The platform is held up by the stock of an Etherial's Honor Blade, with a miscellaneous support system bit to connect it to the base, and covered up by a Stealth Suit pauldron.
Yeah, quite the amalgamation, but I think it turned out okay.
I might just have to try and build one myself, the torso plate is a great idea for the "body" of the console and the backpack inside is amazing. I'll have to find something else for the stand since I don't have a spare ethereal but I think I got some old burst cannons laying around i can probably use. I even have the body and arms from the ghostkeel pilot I can use to make him look like he is interacting with the device!
This will go great with my home-made sniper drones I made from the pathfinder rail rifles and old multi-tracker bits
Wow, very cool kitbash! I like the commander torso plate and the aesthetics. Do post a pic once it's painted up!
Here is my own take on the Firesight Marksman, which has a bit of Eldar flavour due to the bits I had around: (In Spoiler form since this is Zadocfish's Gallery after all )
Let me try to remember what I used as it was a long time ago... - From the Devilfish Sprue, arm and torso bits from the tank commander and the sensor spines bit. - From the Fire Warrior Sprue, legs and helmet bits. - Some bits from the Apocalypse Vehicle sprue, a couple of Eldar bits and part of a Tau bit. - A piece of foam from a pen case. - Pieces of cut sprues.
Pinched this idea off you! Really happy with how it turned out.
Used the pilot from a Devilfish for upper body and removed his back pack. I used extra FW legs and back pack. I think they are Coldstar fins on the side of a commander chest plate. Thats the barrell of a Rail Rifle for the stand.
