So i got a box of fire warriors and a crisis suit for my b-day that will go along way to starting my K'tal Jungle fighters. Im also hoping to get a second hand battleforce soon that will help even more. Now my force needs a significant warrior to lead my hunter cadre. Im never content with just the wargear attached to a model. so here is my Commander. With his big shield to smash asside trees.
I need some hlpe about how ti integrate the plasma rifle into the arm to make it more look like its specialised suit. also i need some cool ideas of what to attach to the back, the Multi Tracker and the target lock went to making the helmet. I need ideas.
Also sniper drone made from extra drones(why do i get so many of those?) I know many don't take them, but nine Str 6 ap3 shots would do wonders at my local meta

Nice work on the shield. Regarding the drone it still looks a bit obvious that its a pulse rifle barrel. Is there something you could do to the end to make it look a bit more meaty? Maybe file off the pulse rifle muzzles and replace with a larger single muzzle? Otherwise, nice work

Good on the body of the drone. I like the shield too.

For jungle fighting giant robots, if you're going tor the anime style, I would suggest taking a look through Gundam 08th MS Team. Very good for inspiration on the wear of jungle combat.

Nice work.

To beef up the drone, try some extra plasticard strips or something.

On the plasma, you could cut the hand at the wrist, and remove the back of the plasma, and make it come directly out of the hand piece.

best of luck and thanks for sharing!

Shield's a little sharp in contrast to the suit. I'd soften up the angles on it a bit.

Just put a suppressor on the end of the rifle, that'll do nicely. It'll elongate the barrel without ruining the gun itself, and also won't require much in the way of detail. Not sure how they'd fit but what about bolter muzzles? Be sure to drill those holes out though dammit!

A conversion for the rail rifle I've seen is two pulse rifles side by side, with gubbins cross connecting them.

So i took some advice on all fronts, i think the commander is suitably awesome and ready to get painted(when i get the paint)
also i think the sniper drones look a bit better

Bitchin' man! One more idea, drill out the circular pok├ęball thing on the sniper rifle (fill in the top half with gs) just to make it look a little more unusual
