build: tau bunker and cannon

It took me FAR too long to settle on the design of this Christmas gift. So much so that I finally shipped it the Tuesday before Easter. Yeah. Not my finest hour of timing, but I do think the results are kinda cool.

I don't own Tau, so getting the aesthetic right was a new challenge for me. After a few false starts, I ended up using wood and plasticard to make prototype "feet" before casting copies in the hardest plaster I could find locally. A few passes with a scribing tool using the lines of Tau weapons and vehicles for inspiration later, and I think it captures the Tau aesthetic pretty well.

And here's the card that accompanied the bunker...
