one thing you should do once you get those FW suits, is to (after cleaning of course) test fit. test fit like mad. get sticky tac, trust me, you'll need it. you just can't pose them without it, it makes shaping your ideas 100x easier.

with that out of the way, you also need to remember that tau look very mechanical and smooth, if you're going to be doing a lot of conversions/GS/plasticard, try to keep it in the style of the model, so very little rough lines (bar kroot/vespid). if done right, everything will look ace.

as to suggestions for poses, look at inquisitor engel's tau log (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12885), and my own log (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26235) for ideas

*there was also a really awesome looking tau R'hymir, wth his sheild jammed into a BT, but i can't for the life of me find the post.

anyways, hope this helps
