Final Tau Post: Drone Squadron

Hello Folks,

Sorry that the title is a bit naff I might change it if I can come up with something better. This will be the final Tau post for a while, I still have to undercoat models but I spent today cleaning them up and prepping them. As I said in the previous post it will be my diorama that will be taking to the stage.
But for now here are the drones:

Battlesuits Inbound

Hello Folks,

I found some time today to get a post up of this Battlesuit and his buddies. I was actually quite surprised how quickly I got this guy done since I hadn't painted for a while. The completion of this guy now means that I have finished my first squad of battle suits. Each battlesuit squad will have a different colour of markings. This squad has a forest green colour. The next battlesuits I post will be most likely to be Broadsides which I'll do red markings for. I'll bore you no longer, onto the pictures:

The blue marking on the side of his gun (above) is to represent that it is a plasma rifle. Just a nice wee bit of showing off that I thought of.

And here he is with his buddies. If you want to see the other two battlesuits on close ups here they are Close ups of Shas'vre and 'Ui. If you look closely, and I mean with a magnifying glass, you will be able to see a few touch ups on the guns of the other two battlesuits and some other things that were bugging me.
My next post will probably be on the nine drones then after that, it will probably be my Falkirk competition entry completely finished. Which I really need to get my finger out and do since it is in two weeks time :O. Anyways, bye for now!

Mission Complete: Final Kroot Shaper

Hello Folks,

I am really sorry about not living up to my promise that I made a few weeks ago. My Art folio and studying got the better of me during my holidays. However I have managed to get in a wee bit of painting over the last week. This has allowed me to finish off a battlesuit, 2 drones and a kroot shaper. I know that sounds a lot but please leave the sarcastic wows till the end of the blog post :D! What is quite amazing though is that I now need to prep and spray more figures because I have painted all the ones I had ready. I never thought I'd get to this stage already. Here is the second shaper that I painted. I muted this one down since the other one was very ... 'tropical', so that the opponents'  eyes weren't spinning around in his head by the end of a game. Here are the pics:

I have taken pictures of the newly painted battlesuit and his pals. Also all nine of the drones I have painted. So expect them to be up over the coming week if I get time during my exams. However next week is going to be a tough week so don't hold your breath, I highly doubt I'll get a post in. Until next time, bye for now!
