It's been over seven weeks since I last posted. In the meanwhile I have played many great games but have not had the time to record them.
I've also been making some slow process on painting a force of T'au for Warhammer 40K
Process has been very slow, initially I assembled all the force and then sprayed it all with Colour Forge Wight Bone paint and it was a fucking disaster. Everything went chalky and bobbly and over 200 pounds worth of figures almost went in the bin.
It was perfect conditions for spraying, a dry summers day with temperatures in the low twenties, so I'm not buying any of that "poor conditions nonsense."
I'll not be using that shit again, it's not like it's even a cheap alternative to the GW sprays.
After a trip to the Dettol bath and some meditation exercises I'd calmed down enough to start painting them.
Being a kid who grew up gaming thinking for myself I don't like being told what colour I need to paint Sci-fi figures so decided I wanted dark grey uniforms with black armour and then a bit of orange detailing.
I've not decided on a Sept yet, but am leaning to Farsight Enclaves.
|The Commander can be posed on a normal base or a flight stand|
|Cadre Fireblade with Fireblade Pulse rifle|
|Strike Team with Pulse rifles|
|Missile pod also has magnetised weapon options|
|Again the missile pod has magnetised weapons options|
|XV25 Stealth Battlesuits|
|The Shas'vre has magnetised weapon options so can switch out for a Fusion blaster|
|Another unit of XV25 Stealth Battlesuits|
|Again the Shas'vre can swap between the options|
|Pair of TX4 Pirhanas|
|The gun drones can be detached and used separately|
This lot allows me to field a 750pt force with a choice of a few options. I've got a few more bits in teh backlog to paint to take me up to about 1500pts.
First game tomorrow against Sams' Genestealer Cult.
Great looking force and love the colour schemeReplyDelete
Thank you NeilDelete
Great looking Tau Paul!ReplyDelete
Great looking colour scheme, lovely looking force, I stick to cheap and cheerful halfords for priming, seems to work so far!ReplyDelete
I've always liked the Tau. They ALMOST got me into 40k!ReplyDelete
It is for the greater goodDelete
Very cool - and what a relief to be able to salvage that primer disaster. Great job on these.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Dettol is great for thatDelete
Very nice! I always liked the look of the Tau.ReplyDelete
Love the color palette. Tau are my favorite 40k force. Good end results despite the primer set back.ReplyDelete
