Its certainly creative.
I would imagine a Tau Titan looks more like an Oversized Battlesuit however, something more like a Robotech or Appleseed suit

Behind the guy that says he's behind you.

Problem is Tau dont have Titans they use Large Aircraft, Their equivalent of a titan is the Tau Manta.

That said its great to see a project thats out of the "box".

Just Have fun with it.

Whatever I was expecting when I clicked on this thread, it certainly wasn't a devilfish with toilet roll tubes taped to it.

I would suggest for any future projects using materials that won't be so obvious once you paint the model. Plasticard (sheet styrene) or just plain thin cardboard is the usual choice. Because whatever you do to it, this model will always look like it's made of toilet roll and duct tape, and that does not look very good.

Although, you did manage to make it stand up on it's own. Props for that at least.

I'm mobile but I'm positive there are hammerhead conversions out there that primarilly are made from the existing kit but cut and sawed, it looks like a battlesuit gundamish style holding the railgun like a rifle, comproble in size to those upright defilers.

That is the origional i believe Aduro, and it was actually made by one of the old eavy metal team

Since then ive seen about 10 or so different ones popping up.
While i rarely see WiP shots of them being built, i am currently talking to someone who has 2 and he is getting a log ready for his 3rd
So ill get him to sign up here.
Failing that, ill drop a link to his blog on tau tactica once he starts it

It's not the original, it's, AFAIK, the second one. His first version didn't have that sensor array thing in where the tank's nose would have been.

second one is magnificent...first one is a waste of good parts from an OOP Armorcast 28mm Battletech Vulture kit. Dont get me wrong, its decently done, just bothers me they used parts from an extremely rare kit to do it.

You sir.....You are funny




Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward. Whoever cannot take care of himself without that law is both. For a wounded man shall say to his assailant, "If I Die, You are forgiven. If I Live, I will kill you." Such is the Rule of Honor.
