Id say a unit is fine. After all its your character leading/inspiring his unit.
I'd still wait for dez to say though its his baby.

It's mainly just the one model, unless you have something like Sternguard or Nobz where the whole units are Vets. Pardon me for not being that knowledgeable concerning Tau, I'm used to just powerklawing the Greata Good outta 'em ;)

So welcome to join! Give that leader some Vet qualities and join on in.

Hey Dez i got so excited about customizing an ork i completly forgot about the actual task, so wanted to knw if what ive made so far is cool for the comp.

Basicly hes a Flash Gitz who got his arms blown off and has had them replaced with huge dakka and awesome targeting face. He destroys his enemys from afar and gets his grot to gather parts to collect parts so he can make his cyborg body more powerful so he can be the most fear flash gitz in the Waaaagh.

Lemme knw what u think :P

Well a Flash Git is basically a Nob that got sick of his Waaagh and went Freeboota, I'd say it qualifies. Git ta work, ya git!

Whoah, he looks huge so far. Well, some of him does ;) I think you need to bulk out his body a bit, he looks Boy sized and Flash Gitz are basically Nobz (and the best thing in the Ork codex next to Meganobz) :)

As awesomely epic and orky as that looks, his body needs to be bigger... it just looks so small compared to the rest of him... but I still really like it!
