We're running Tau and our team (Adeptus Film Company) is doing a play on Pandora from the Avatar movie... I won't give away all the cool back story but the thought was to do floating islands like the movie and integrate glowing discs with the Tau icons. One of our team members, Greg, is a graphic artist and is a genius when it comes to coming up with these ideas. No way we could have pulled it off without him.
We built up a new cart to mount this to, with some sturdy casters... no wrecking all the hard work with broken wheels!
We spent a couple weeks ago flushing out the core of it and both Saturday and Sunday last weekend working on the display. I'll throw captions in the titles of the photos so you can see what we're working on!

Only a week and a half left! Outside of this I still need to finish a riptide, 2 skyrays and 20 drones! Argh!
