Cool Broadside. Have you been looking at John Greneby's Tau army, perchance? :)

The army looks very good, by the way.

Ah. This guy's Tau was a finalist in the Best Painted Army in a tournament I co-organised in 2004. I'll see if I can find some pics...

I did not intend to put you down or belittle your acomplishment. It's a great army, and the conversions look ace.

Wow. The broadside looks really ace. I don't like the idea of shoulder-mounted railguns and your attempt on chainging it is awesome. The jungle-camo also looks good. Keep it up.

I love the feudal Japan style theme, any more elaborate conversions on the way or keeping it simple?

The painting is spot on on the tau, personally, I'm not fond of the color scheme, makes me want to shoot em! :) Love the conversion on the broadside, and the tables are great too.

Yea I am working on some unit leaders for the fire warriors that look very Japanese. And I plan to convert another commander but it will be female.

i like the hole japanese theme, i was just wondering if the banners would look better in tau lettering, just a thought,keep up the good work:D

I have considered using Tau letters for the banners but I have a Japanese Freind who actually named them all. On the bases is written how to pronounce the name in Japanese and its translation. Due to that I find it more characterfull to simply have the banners in Japanese

they look amazing but i need to see more close ups of the crisis suits!

im keen to know if the leaders sheild is customised and i love the lengthened melta hes got.

the japanese theme is great, but you have to work in the bonding knives in the group leaders with blades drawn.

more pics please!

I am not prowd of the early crisis suits because they were one of the first models painted in the army (2 years ago)

Yea good old commander Mugen has a costom shield, it was not that hard to make actually (plasticard and Green stuff) Thanks for the apraisal :D

Just you wait and see the squad leaders (currently being painted/worked on) do have drawn swords)

One is jumping while swinging his sword horizontally (still being greenstuffed)
The other has his sword ponting towards the ground while standing one foot on a marines head (I collect marines so dont kill me :eek: )

I will have more pictures next week
