I saw an XV-9 on ebay for sale and thought it was a pretty cool model, but I haven't seen the stats for it yet.
I like the conversion...Do you by any chance do you have the stat changes for the XV-9 or does it just work as an XV-8 that looks different?
What did you use for for the shoulder armour?
As for the Stabilizers...Cut them down. Unless they are actually supposed to do somethin special, there is no reason to have them that large. Having a set of smaller ones would accomplish the same affect and look cooler, in my opinion

The experimental rules are available off the FW site:XV-9 experimental rules
Note that "further weapon configurations and options will be added later".

Thanks for the C @ C! I'll cut the tips of the wings down a little but not too much, I think I like having them larger than practical. The right shoulder is a front torso section from a marine dread and the left shoulder guard is the front plate from a Sky Ray Turret. Check out my broadside sniper for a painted and decaled view of the same. A fast attack choice suit, pretty sweet huh? You could add 9 more suits to a list potentially. I think it was warseer has a further review on the XV-9. someone had a nice chat with GW personnel at a gamesday event and got the skinny on the suit. It has some nasty weaponry coming out. Also Tau codex is slotted for 2012.
