Tau XL-18 Interdiction Armor (Spikey Bits DreadKnight Conversion Contest Entry)

Here's my entry for the Spikey Bits DreadKnight Mega Build Contest.  As usually with time-limited contests, I always seem to run out of time and never get my entry finished to the level I want, but I'm happy with how the suit turned out.  My goal was to make it feel very Tau, and I'm happy with the result.

Maybe I'll use him as a Hammerhead in Apocalypse games.  I'll probably do a little more work cleaning him up before painting, and painting will probably be done in the traditional Tau tan and brown.  Here's a shot of a normal suit for scale.  He's a pretty big guy; and yet the railgun still seems too large.

Hopefully we'll see the rest of the contest entries soon.  I'll post the link when it goes up.
