About Xenos and Proud

This is a small blog about my Warhammer 40,000 hobby. I will try to concentrate on the tactics behind the general game and my Xenos armies but there will be the odd post about random stuff.

About Me

Aberdeen, United Kingdom
Xenos and Proud is an 18 year old from Scotland who has been playing 40K for the last 4 years. He loves the 'under-dog' xenos armies, namely his Tyranid Gorgon splinter fleet, his Saim-Hann windrider host, his Tau Vleastean Hunter-cadre and the newest addition, the Shadowfax Corsairs. Although his tactics are mostly 'borrowed', his painting skills still 'developing' and his luck becoming evermore 'ridiculous' he continues to play, paint and roll in the hope that one day things will get better.

XV88 Conversion Idea

Hi bloggers,

I was thinking of possible conversions for my battlesuits in my Tau army. I want them to have a really agile look so they need to be slimmer and less boxy. I also want them to have the slim twin jet pack where the thrusters on the pack are converted so they are together. Like this:

This jetpack.

I also want the missile pods to be wrapped around the arms and be an integral part of the suit. I hate how the guns seem so 'bashed on' like an after thought.

I'm not sure about the helmets but I will try and make them slender.

The legs will be dogs legs like this:

I will try and get a prototype built up soon. Sorry for the random assortment of photos with no easy way to imagine them but try and think of it. Also Here are some of my inspirations.

So do you think it would work?

EDIT: Just reached my first 1000 pageviews! Thanks everyone!
