YES BEHOLD WOOD ELVES AND TAU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(New stuff at the bottom of the page.)
well hello again ye few who browse the project here i shall begin the work on my Wood elves and my Tau
ill throw down some fluff some list making but mostly PAINTING AND MODELING!!!!!!!!! uh mostly painting for what little of all these things i do
so first off i think ill start with the story of my tau...the fire warriors to be exact.
i began the army a while ago, my first FW was don in March 07 so i started the army a few months earlier i suppose. but it took a while to paint and was the first thing i posted on LO and well i was bombarded by DILUTE YOUR PAINTS WATER DOWN PAINTS and such so now i do well for a while i was pissed, mostly my problem for taking pics from super up close
well now im off track, so it was in march the frst was done march 07! (still needs basing)now it is jan 09 and the unit is still unfinished......im a pro i know
luckily i am down to minor details like the sept markings and then basing.
this is my tau story i wanted to share nearly 2 years and not one thing done....i also have a nearly finished crissis suit.
now onto the wood elves
these are being done to give me a fantasy army to play with for the one day that comes i ever get my skaven done.
though as the days pass i belive i will get to my vermin horde and when i do they will be done JUSTICE!
so now to the WEs i decided on them because i could do a low model count army with some cool painting ideas...i decided on winter themed army, little did i know dryads are super hax. so i went with it then gots some stuff and was going to make a list for a 2s tourney at the local store, unneccisarily said i didnt get the army done in time...i only have 2 models done.
and so the stagnation began i stopped work on them and started my tau again for 5th addition came and my friends wanted to play more 40k. but fear not i am going to keep up the work on the WEs.
so here is a funny thing about my WE army....winter is a time when the forest sleeps and the magic is at a low....i was planning to run 3 spell singers in the army...i think it was like 1500 or 750 i cant recal but i am led to believe it was 1500....so our 2s team would have 6 mages(friend planned on a lizard men army with 3 skink priests)
but wait you say its a winter army how does it have dryads ond magic....at first it would be uh...whats fluff? but now im thinking THE FOREST IS IN DANGER the spelsingers have brot forth deep srtong magic...you know som bs to make the use of tree sirits ok.
but now i think i will do that and do some convertions maybe on my tree spirits but at the very least make them have some sort of glow to them, atleast their faces all bright and glowy.
so in a few hours i shall have some pics of what is done. and one day there will be actual units!
but for now just a long rant about how i such at doing things =D
post stuff it might help make me do things

Well then, let's get moving! It's sorta good to hear somebody else procrastinates beside me
well speeking of procrastination those few hours becam many but BEHOLD PICTURES!
now starting with wood elves
glade guard champ fist spellsinger and beginning of next spellsinger
hes done apart from basing, though like down below the white is thick not sure why but i probly didnt watter it down early enough but next stuff will be better, may wash his blues though.
thinking of washing the blues with the new blue wash on the ice blue stuff probly water it down so it stays lighter, the whits not to good it didnt water down enough but oh well next one will be better
also plan on washing the skin and doing a glow on the eyes and stones on staff, possibly on the hand holding the spite familiar thing what you guys think of that last bit?
still in the beginning of this one
and now the tau
i just have a couple of the newly painted fire warriors becuase the others are somewhere else...
also once the units done ill do a side by side of one of the old vs one of the new
so hes one of the originaly painted tau things ffrom what is close to 2 years ago O.O
also i noticed his legs are flat black not grey....so yeah ill get on that, will probly also wash it with black
i like the drones but i have yet to do the sept marks on them....also the crissis suit and these are pretty dusty which is a bit embarassing.
i rock at procrastination =D
so yeah almost 2 yrs in the making and obviously i have not spent all the 2 yrs on them but i like how they are looking now and the next box should be much MUCH quicker
so thats it for now tommorow may see some painting done since i will be up in the am instead of waking at noon (fixin me up for some community college!)
tune in next time for another thrilling installment of TAU AND WEs A PROCRASTINATION SAGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Personally, I'm a very original person in terms of colour schemes.. I normally go for the most striking in-your-face colour schemes, but for once, I'd have to say your wood elves don't have enough green on them.
You've hit the brown just right, but they really do need some green.
Even my red and yellow LotR Wood Elves have some green on them.
