Tau ‘Knight’ WiP Update 5/25/15

May 25, 2015

Chassis is largely finished, save for adding bits here and there to hide gaps. Tops of the feet still need to be finished. Weapon mounts are magnetized. I moved the ‘hips’ up from the original location because it looks better (using a Locust as a general reference). The possibility of adding crab claws or some other arm-like thing remains. Given current timeline, might finish by end of year 2015? >.<

  1. Always cool to see what mashups people can do. I can’t wait to see it painted!

    Nice one – that’s a cracking Tau interpretation of a knight 🙂 I like the way it combines visual elements of the riptide and their fliers, and is instantly recognisable as a tau vehicle. I don’t know if this is something you had in mind but I can imagine it withdrawing its legs partially and turning into a flier between battles – slightly ponderous by Tau standards but still better than footslogging.
    Not sure about the crabclaws though, might that not risk adding a Slaaneshi element to it? Then again you’ve done a grand job making it look Tau up to now so I’m sure whatever you’ve got in mind for the claws will be spot on.
