Tau Spectre (Culexus Assassin) by Proiteus Tau Spectre (Culexus Assassin) by Proiteus

When it comes to psychic defence the Tau are lacking, so most players often go with an allied Culexus Assassin. So I decided to do the same and convert mine to look the part.

Now Tau may have little presence in the warp but they are not null or pariahs, nor do they favor close quarters so a Tau assassin was out of the question. I did consider the idea of converting a unique alien assassin who's race was allied or part of the Empire, but given that this was an allied proxy I thought it best to simply convert a Culexus Assassin miniature to make it more recognizable .

Okay, this is GENEUS! :D This is probably the coolest conversion I've ever seen! I mean, just... wow. How'd you pull his head off? I can see the lens of the speculum and the helmet of a fire warrior, but there's some other stuff there as well. Green stuff? In any case, this is still fucking badass. And as a primarily Tau player myself, this gives me some ideas.

Perhaps it is one of the Gue'vasa-human helpers-the Tau do have a number of human worlds/groups in their empire, and we know humans can be pariahs

This is heretical! And not because it is a tau, but because it has no hooves! The conversion, other than that, is really, really good. But yeah, I wish he had hooves :C

Tau ain't pariahs, so they need a loyal Gue'vesa (human) to take up this role.

Oh, I though it would just be an equivalent to the Anima Speculum, but relying entirely on tech.
