I'm guessing I'm not the only Tau-enthusiast that cheered during the final action scene of the recent District Nine film, when Vickus dons the alien power-armor to protect his alien friend. The battlesuit was so slick and deadly. It's movements, while agile and dynamic, were heavy and powerful. This is exactly how I envision a Tau Battlesuit to move and fight in the universe of the 41st Millennium. Just look at this beauty!
One thing I'd like to point out is the dark color scheme that has been off set, albeit subtly, by the orange and white markings and the paint, chipped away to reveal the metal underneath. Were I to ever create a second Tau army, I would definitely draw heavily from this film and color scheme.
If you're having trouble getting the motivation to assemble and paint your models, I highly recommended renting or purchasing this movie to get you pumped up to paint and convert all your Tau models. To be completely honest with you all, I assembled and converted Old Shatter Hands the day after seeing the first Transformers movie in theaters. Such is the power of film to inspire!
