Here is a quick sketch of a Soriog Sniper, a range of high tech aliens created by Khurasan miniatures.
As soon as I saw these sculptures I fell in love with them, partly because of their paint scheme. They reminded me alot of the TAU from GW. I had missed the boat with the Tau but had always liked them, this new 15mm range from Khurasan got my imagination running again and I purchased a bunch of them last Christmas.
Anyway back to the Soriog, It is the colour scheme that is all Tau on the Khurasan website, the actual design is very heavily influenced by the 'Elites' from the X-Box game Halo. Khurasan have also started to release other members of the Soriog Empire that match the Halo game. A jackal type of auxiliary and plans to release a giant worm like warrior much in keeping with the 'Hunters' from Halo. I love these designs and will be probably copying the sandy paint scheme as It's a great way to exercise the Inner Tau in me.
