Tau XV8 crisis suit
The cat comes back the very next day...or so. The following model was painted for my blue and white Tau army and will be used as a bodyguard for my commander. Shas'vre is his proper title.
The painting is quite simple for these models. I went for a drybrush of regal blue on a black primer followed by ice blue highlights.
Which shows that sometimes the simplest schemes can be good enough for a tabletop standard.
The head is a well known conversion amongst tau players inspired by Tael's suit.
It uses mainly the normal crisis head as well as the targetting array system and bits from the burst cannon.
Also I mustn't forget to credit fellow blogger at Warhammer Tau for his head conversions which this one is greatly inspired from.
My commander can now be safely escorted to certain death...For the Greater Good!
Hope you enjoyed, and until next time, happy hobbying!
