Here it is, folks, my representation of the Broadside Battlesuit from the tabletop game Warhammer 40000. I've been toying with this idea for a while, and on Thanksgiving I had finally enough spare time to undertake this project.
The XV88 Broadside Battlesuit are the most heavily armed of the Tau ground troops. The pilots of such suits are required to engage and destroy heavily armoured targets with their extremely powerful weapons. Most Broadsides are armed with a twin-linked rail gun and smart missile system.
Check out that detailed chest armour, it matches the real Broadside quite nicely.
Here it is with the Guns and smart missiles poised in attack position. In the tabletop game, Broadsides can fire nearly 5 feet across the battlefield, according to my brother, who uses them effectively during the game.
I like this shot. Note the unevenly lengthed antennae.
The railgun, detached.
Here are the smart missile pods and the shoulders. The shoulders came out a bit large, but the still look pretty good.
And now we have the reference pic.
Please heckle me about all the misinformationand factual errors on this page. I'll get it right eventually.
No no, for the Emperor! May the forces of the Emperor of Mankind always claim victory and their foes crushing defeat! Space Marines (Black Templars) for life! Anyways this looks almost exactly like the real thing, the only advice that can be given has already been said. Great work! If ya got a sec I appreciate comments and ratings on my stuff, thanks :).
