Just a quick update. Not had much free time of late so have just been working on what takes my fancy even if it's just to get the ideas out of my head and into models form. And with Kill Team I have a LOT of ideas...
First up is the Shas'vre of what will be my Tau team. Stealth suits aren't great for characters mainly because they are very uniform in design and unlike the likes of other models you can't just take their helmet off to show the creature inside. So I had a think about this and came up with a solution I am working on where the helmet splits apart to reveal the face. I am just doing some GS work and general clean up but it's fun to toy around with this idea. My immediate thought after seeing the pictures I took was I need to put that eye sensor on a stalk that folds down.
The general idea behind it is that the bar on the front slides in on itself before sliding into the two side pieces, what I am going to do is have the eye piece fold down so you can see more of the face.
For the Stealer Cult I've modified the Patriarch model to represent a large Genestealer that is on the verge of becoming a Patriarch but not quite yet. I've removed the spikes partly to represent this but mostly because I got tired of stabbing myself with it.
Then lastly my Harlequin troupe just awaiting some painting time. This is a army I've wanted to try now that they have been released in plastic since but I've never really had an incentive to do so. I used to play them in the RT days and this is a nice way to dabble in them. The central Player is made from the Death Jester, I figured it'd be something a bit different to have her perched on a dead Inceptor marine that the Troupe has just dealt with.
