Tau Battlesuit Support Systems: Can you name them

Tau Empire XV88 Broadside Battlesuit

I have just purchased a new Broadside Battlesuit, and upon starting the build came across a little problem that I am hoping to get a little help with. As most gamers know, Tau Battlesuits come with a varying amount of support / Signature systems that can be taken as upgrades. The kit above comes with said upgrades on the sprue, (awesome) but does not tell you which ones are which (Not so awesome).

Below is a picture of the support / Signature systems that come on the sprue and I would love for someone out there to tell me what number corresponds to which item in the Tau Codex, so I can represent the correct item on the model.

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor: Conversion Part IV

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor Conversion

Progress has been made again on my Inquisitor conversion, I had my ebay delivery of the Sword and have now been able to get stuck in. Due to gluing of the hand I have not completed as much as I would of liked, but it is coming together. Also I have nearly completed the new base for my retinues Cyber Mastiff.

Please follow these links for 'Part I', 'Part II' and 'Part III' if you have not already seen them.

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor: Conversion Part III

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor Conversion

Part III of this conversion has seen further advancements on the Inquisitor, including the arms and base. The original vision of the model is starting to come together now and with the addition of the base, I think is looking pretty good.

Here are the links to 'Part I' and 'Part II' if you have not already had a look at them. The Model is now definitely looking more Inquisitorial.

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor: Conversion Part II

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor Conversion

With the butchery of the Eldar model found here in 'Part I', it was now time to move on and start adding Green Stuff. I will note here, that I have before used green stuff to fill in gaps and the odd embellishment on a model. This was way out of my comfort zone and I was very nervous to start it. But after hours of so called sculpting, I was really happy with the result so far.

I have tried as much as possible to keep my initial vision in tact and stick to my concept art, I found the image I had of the final product kept me from just going off on one and changing my idea!

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor: Conversion Part I

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor Conversion

This all started a while ago, when I was looking for the right Inquisitor model for my Grey Knight army. I could not find what I wanted specifically, so I opted for the Power armoured model from Games Workshop found 'Here'.

I then thought about creating my own Inquisitor, modelling him / her from scratch and also an accompanying retinue. Inspired by the recent White Dwarf articles and the whole Blanchitsui theme, I started to trawl through the internet trying to find what I was after. I gave myself one rule though, to only use Games Workshop models, but I could use any amount of Green stuff, Plasticard extra I wanted. The theory is, if I ever go to an official GW event, I would still be able to use my completed Inquisitor and Retinue.
