Default Sexy Commander Shadowsun



Because Tau are so popular this month, I thought I'd dig out all my old pics of my Commander Shadowsun conversion and post them on Tale of Painters with some notes. Check it out if you're interested in seeing more.

Pretty sure there is a drawn picture with the same style. Don't know which one came 1st though.

EDIT: oh yes, there it is in the link.

Ah man that is an incredible conversion! Will you tell us how you did it?

Yes, I tell you how I did it in the first post of this thread? You're like me, I only look at the pictures too and don't read the text.

No, in your first post you didn't explain shit; you merely provided us with a link to a tale of painters blog. There is a huge difference between the two.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Don't get your knickers in a twist mate. All the information anyone needs about this model is in the link. I'm not going to repeat myself when I have all the information and imagery already set out in chronological order. If people are interested they can check out the link. Sheesh, I'm just trying to share some hobby with the community.

And thats awesome, however you said you provided an explanation but all you have actually done is provide a link with that explanation.

Well show us the finished model in addition to the link.

Personally I am not a fan of the conversion at all. The face doesn't feel right to me and the body seems to just scream: look at me! Anime-like Tau sex symbol over here!

Just exudes the feeling of 'meh' to me. This hobby, the stories/fluff and the models entice me for the pew-pew not the sexy time.
