It’s a huge army as I look at it, and I am sure the right person (or group of people) could make this into an amazing army of Tau and alien allies.

I’ve already had a couple of people comment about being interested, so over to you – is there one person who’d like to take this on in its entirety.

Or, a group where I can send the models out as units and we all work on an agreed colour scheme and come together at the end to do something cool like donate a finished army to a community group or school club?

Because I hate myself at a visceral level. I spent weeks making 6 vespid look dynamic and must have then purchased some more…

I clearly went wrong at some point. 44 gun drones. These include gun drones that would accompany Fire Warrior squads and battlesuits.

Goes with the other one to make a complete squad of 12. Again, just use them as Tau fire warriors

To go with the 7 completed, making 2x 10 man squads. They could easily be used as Tau Firewarrior proxies.

These are very heavy kitbash conversions. Three Tauren counts as battlesuits, 1 Tauren counts as Broadside.

when painted up, they could look like the bottom image (miniature not included).

Sub assemblies. Some conversion work for it to have “arms” and underslung gun. You could finish it that way or convert it back I’m sure.
