I don't care for the 4 armed version of Shadowsun, I get the Landmate/Tag concept they were going for but it doesn't fit or match anything else in the Tau arsenal I think it fell short and looked awkward. I decided to fix that, I removed the fusion blasters from the secondary arms and mounted them on her regular arms. The secondary arms were left off and were replaced with wings that were made from a 5mm bead and lower leg wings from a Coldstar. The rest of the model is stock.

I think this is a good conversion. Shadowsun is a bit top heavy, proportion wise with those extra arms, and this ends up looking a lot more agile. I wonder what she'd look like with a better helmet - I dislike armored units without helmets but the Shadowsun helmet is kinda ugly IMO. Maybe with a Breacher helmet?

Good job. This is so much better than the original.
