You know what, those DRM dropships look pretty good to me!

Hmmmm......

Can anyone name the company or game system where these non-Orca dropships come from?

They aren't the Forgeworld type, but they look pretty close.

On a side-note - I'm going to overhaul the catalog in the coming days, and add the suggestions people have posted in this thread.

Please continue to post models that you feel would fit in with the Tau theme in Epic. :)

Yeah, the Orca's are "home made" out of, mostly, 6 mm MDF. Used a 60 W laser cutter and at work and loved the whole metaphor. Epic drop ships under laser fire. Re-entry vehicles with fumes and flame flashes streaming off their leading edges in the machine's airflow. Relatively easy, and CHEAP, to mass produce!!

Making up plans to cut a Manta at some stage.

Of course my August Institution has just purchased a 3-D printer, it is in the room next door printing a test building drawn up by one of the students, . . . . serious distraction.

Now back in character.

Updated the proxy catalog.

I'm still a bit unsure about the DRM models. They seem a bit big compared to the original Tau models in Epic.

I also found some more "potential" from Reaper:

Image
Baron APC = Orca?

Image
Czar = Orca?

Image
Overlord Gunship = Baracuda?

I like the Czar seems a really good fit for an Orca like you suggest!

I have a couple of those Barons, painted up as dropships for my Mechanicus (pic here). They're a bit angular for my taste, for Tau.

The Czar is nice, though.

Found some minis that may work as Tetras and Piranhas (especially if you stick some Onslaught gundrones to them).

Onslaught's wave 9 mentions:

OTC - Neo Shinobi Yurei (Anti-Grav Bike units)
OTC - Tenko Assault Craft (Anti-Grav Light Attack Craft)
OTC - Okami Commanders Pack - (Assorted Command Models)

Looking good for new Tau players.

Hopefully we will also see some proxies for the Barracudas and Orcas. :)
