When we hear the term Broadside, a powerful, terrible, and yet awe inspiring visual comes to mind.
This time around I would like to share some pictures of my first squad of Tau Broadsides. These models were extensively converted. They have all been repositioned to hold the Rail Gun like an assault rifle. The one in the middle has been given a "mohawk" using the sensor spine from the Tau vehicle sprue to represent a drone controller.
The broadsides have also had their legs repositioned for a more dynamic firing stance. The SMS systems are made from the Hammerhead SMS with gun drone sensors on top. I also used the FW marker lights to represent Target Locks.
Lastly, the Shield Drones are converted from regular gun drones with extra sensor spines and a disruption pod.
