Wh40K: Battle-Hardened by StugMeister Wh40K: Battle-Hardened by StugMeister
Done for the Illuminatus weekly sketch, about 3hrs work altogether.

This Shas'O likes using his looted shuriken catapult when getting up-close and personal. :)

Oh, and he took out the Eldar Dread with a well-placed plasma grenade. ;)

EEEEAH....TAU FO' LIEF!!! lol. Nice job, like it how he's holding an Eldar weapon...even though it's kinda a small thing, I think it's kinda cool if the factions looted each other's bodies more often.....not including the orks.

I love this even though he has killed and looted the eldar (my 40k army of choice).

Thanks. Trying to convey emotion with a character who is armoured is very difficult but I think I nailed it with this one. :)

Interesting concept. Tau have been known to loot other weapons not Tau of origins (Farsight's sword).

pretty good work here :D kinda looks like a codex work

not much of a Tau fan though in my opinion if there really is a battle hardened Tau he would've given up the peaceful part of the "greater good" long ago

still nice work though :)

Brilliant! really love what you've done here showing how powerful a tau warrior really is!
I read somewhere about the lifesource to the eldar which was a small diamond or stone that they had their entire life and if someone just takes it off(because it is attached to their body/clothes) they will die immideatly.

For the Greater Good!
