Blue Table Painting
Tau from Ohio State University World?
This was a Tau project with a twist: the client is a OSU student and obviously very dedicated. He asked for a Tau army in his school colors (which actually look very handsome on Tau) and for a kick it would include elements of rival Michigan State (space marines) getting trampled underfoot.
This project is unusual in that it used Americana craft paints; these most closely matched the exact school colors. The color scheme is pretty simpleâ€”Grey primer with two highlights of Slate Grey and Sky Grey. The red is (of all things) Santa Red.
If you look closely you can see some of the Tau letters spell out the school acronym OSU.
As an alternate to flying bases, the Crisis suits feature integration with leftover plastics from a GW Cities of Death kit. Also note the stabilizing feet on the Braodside. This is a clever conversion from the Assembly roomâ€”a split burst cannon and the butt of another weapon in the center. Simple yet effective.
All the weapons are magnetized, though you can barely see them. I recommend small magnets from www.amazingmagnets.com
Very nice - I love the way that you guys are able to use inks on your models - If you ever come over the Chicago to run some Workshops count me in!!! LOL
Lovely colorscheme! He knew what he wanted and it just looks great. Nice job as usual mate.
I like the colors. At first they looked really cool. I like the gray it looks good that the colors are shifting. After I checked a bit closer there was a few things I didnâ€™t like that much.
What I donâ€™t really like is the red, It looks a bit messy to me. I donâ€™t know if you tried to get it to look that way. If so then its just a matter of taste. I like a more smooth red. I guess this is quite a fast paint job and consider that they look good.
They have a good table top standard, I guess that was the goal?
The brown/yellow parts looks quite nice.
standing on the michigan flag, i love it
nice job in general as well

Sacrilege? Now sacrilege is next year when Lysander will be joining my Sons of Malal chaos army. that should be real fun.
Go, silly human...
Paint your little blue army....
When you are done, we Tau shall ridicule you as Ultramarine wanna-be's....
