nope i made them myself total cost for the whole thing including the white tubes the interlocking foam mats and paint was just over 30$ (about 33$). the gun props however are being made out of pink insulation foam board with a bread knife and a exo knife thouse i got for free but im pretty sure you can get a 8X6 sheet thats 1 inch thick for ... about 12$

tau looted chainsword eh?

:3

... I like the tau, but if GW made them to primiraly appeal to the Eastern markets, they kinda made it wrong, what with when people like non-native stuff, they don't like it for it's similiarity.

By the Greater Good, this is amazing. Great work. I don't see why A Fire Warrior would have a Chainsaw though. A better option proably would have been a Katana or Long Sword. Also do you know what Tau Sect this is? It's kind of hard to tell.

well this blue is based on my army. i usually just treat them as my own sept. but the blue tau "Sa'cea"

Looks like you're about ready to unload some S5 death from half a table away. The form is very close to what I see on the tabletop. Overall a very nice job.

haha thanks mate. yeah i very pleased by the overall foam of it. i take reference from the minis and the DOW in-game models.
i see the others tau cosplay are either too big or too small.
one of the reason i didnt make the helmet. dont want to ruined it with an oversize helmet.

That's amazing. So much detail. And it looks great.

I reckon you just need to dirty it up a bit and it'd look terrific

Now...

I just need to choose what I want to make. I'll only have one shot at it, cos it looks awful expensive :/
Firewarrior
XV15 Stealth Suit
Commander Shepard

-or, from my upcoming comic-
Requiem of Eilis Powered Armour
Project Damocles Myrmidon MkIV Powered Armour

depends. here the prices of the material and tools are more expensive. the whole build set me back rm$300.
the heat tool, under suit and 2 bags of Eva foam being the most expensive.
but i know in america u can get those things for dirt cheap.

i reconmand fire warrior or shepard. both have good examples to follow.
stealthsuit is actually quite large to build. costing more.

Scarledian Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm in Australia, though - so it's not gonna be cheaper. In fact it'll probably be more expensive.. fucking greedy bastards

The stealth suits XV15 is the smaller one.. not the XV25..
