also a good idea to be able to swap a team leader's weapons
if you want. Rather than building two different models,
I figured the team leader would probably carry a backup
weapon slung over his shoulder.
I toyed around with the idea of having the Pulse Carbine
hanging from a shoulder strap. I even tried building one
with some greenstuff.
In the end, it looked far better having the rifle 'clipped'
on to the side of the backpack. I figure the Tau would have
attachment points for various equipment on their armor anyway,
being such a technologically advanced race.
