Hey, this is my recents tau conversions that im trying to finish painting and assembling.

For the Shas'O, I might do an equivalent but as a Broadside.

what you need to make in your Shas'o kit:

- Dreadnaught back plate for the leg pads
- Dreadnaught Leg armor for shoulder pads
- Stealth suit guns for back pack decoration
- Stealth suit head for making the neck protection
- Stealth suit anthena
- SM bike frontal metal protection for feet armor (very not necessery, im trying to find something else)
- 2 sets of crisis suit weapon sprue to make the gun (2x plasma, 2x fusion blaster, missilepod, target lock x2 (1 for gun and 1 for face)
- 2 drone antena to make facial decoration.

Ok the battlesuits gun is epic. The FW to stealthsuit thing though, not really that useful tbh.

They are a good job all around. That being said, the paint on some of them - especially the parts in white - appear to be thick. Painting white can be very tricky. It's best to, when possible, prime them in white to begin with. When it's not possible, it's best to go with very thin white coats layered up.

That gigantic gun you made is terrific.
