Well because you ask for it here is my converted battle suit that I call, The Tael-0 Type Battle suit, (Taken after Shas El Tael of Tau Online and Advance Tau Tactica and Ravager Zero also of Tau online)
Oddly enough, I think it might be better to leave the crystals as they are. At first glance, it looks like smoke trailing from the foot (which, admittedly, is not where the jump jets are, but who's counting?) which is a very cool effect, and at second glance, it's a good addition to a scenic base. The only thing I'd do is try to blend them into the base a bit...maybe build up some basing material around the bottom of the crystal so it looks like it's jutting out of the ground instead of just sitting on top of the ground.
The crystal is just plain rock salt. I've tried a few times to color it but it starts to break down a bit I have been able to seal it and that's just about it
Yes, the crystals do just look like they are just setting there and not "apart" of the rock it's something I've been working on something I've manage to correct if you look at the pathfinders though I'm still practicing on it
Not on one of my t'au models yet... I'm working on a reapon Lich mini for a friend (For a DnD game and he commented on the staff have a blueish glow so I did try it out on that :mrgreen: ) I'll try to get some W.i.P if anyone if interested

I was actually thinking of putting it, cut in halves, on the sides o his jet pack, like -[_]- where '-' is the half shield gen and [_] is the jet pack.
To give the jet pack some mass I added the seeker missiles and just cut them down and added the back part of a target lock.
A trimmed down shield drone on each side took care of the gaps between the jet back and the back of the suit.
