Your shields cannot withstand firepower of this magnitude! In all seriousness though, this baby is the definition of 'Superior Firepower' for the Tau. With the exception of the Hammerhead of course, but that's a tank.
I especially like the way you built the large guns on it. I never saw that doing someone before...well maybe there were some Lego builders that may have done that, but those elements were not as well photographed as you did. Not only that, you've next to building a great scale model, also done some seriously good photograpy work!
Actually, it is minifig scale. I checked it's size to a fig with that of a crisis suit to a guardsman. The railguns were made proportional (or at least I'm pretty sure they are) to the way they'd be on my GW Broadside.
outstanding piece of beauty :D But its not in minifig scale is it? Anyway its still excellent representation of tau in lego form.
Could you make a commader farsight or commander shadowsun? Those two are my favorite chars in tau army (next to kroots).
For greater good

Best Broadside on the 'pages... you really nailed it (quite useless in WH40K DC, though)
No my friend, they're useless in Soulstorm. Instead of a trio, you get one who covers his face with the SMS boxes when he moves. Why would you put anything (let alone something filled with explosives) in front of your suit's camera eyes?!?!
Now that my mini rant is over, thank you!
Thanks! I don't play Tau yet, but I'm working on acquiring an army. The progress is painfully slow though...
As for the railguns, they're actually quite strong! My problems are actually in the main body pieces staying attached to the core.
If we really wanted to be pedantic, we could say that the feet don't look right, and the funny little slope pieces at the ankles whose name I can't think of should be at the hips and the 1x2 plates should be at the ankles. But I won't say that because I don't follow WH and just googled some pics. I like that you found a way to create the gap in the barrels of the big guns at that scale, although it looks a little flimsy.
