I picked up a cheap Tau army recently;
$150 AUS for;
5 crisis battlesuits
12 x fire warriors
1 x pathfinder
1 x sniper drone team
20 x kroot carnivores
1 x devilfish
1 x Hammerhead
Most has been primed, one suit has had an attempted paint job. The hammerhead and devilfish have both had some white painted on them.
Unfortunately, I don't much like the weapon load out son the suits;
2 x plasma rifle + burst cannon
2 x missile launcher + burst cannon
The last one's okay, 1 x fusion blaster, 1 x plasma rifle.
Onwards, 1 suit is missing a foot. So that needs to be repaired at one stage or another.
This here will be my first major painting attempt (i tried lizzies, but I just have too many to paint) and will hopefully be entering a 1200 point 40k Tourny towards the end of the year.
My kroot scheme I really winged. I'm not a good painter by any standard and this is my first serious painting attempt.
The kroot took only 30 mins or so to do all of them. They are dipped. Guns, knifes and other accessories are yet to be completed.
My Basic colour scheme for the tau themselves will be dark red cloth, white armour. I'm trying at the moment to figure out exactly how to paint properly, so do bear with me.
Here are some photos;
Central one is the beginning of my colour scheme.
Kroots will lose their shinyness when i apply an awesome varnish i've purchased just gotta do the finishing touches before i varnish
Hammer head turret needs a little repair work
I do have the boosters, they've just come unassembled
I will update this over the next few days as I get more time to paint
Thanks guys, critique away!
Well, this has just been entered into Tale of Painters. 2000 points 200 points a month! This is especially difficult for me. I'm a busy kid. I've got work over 60 hours a week! But this is as good a motivator as I can possibly get.
I'm a person who has to have everything strictly organised before commiting, luckily I've got half my army already purchased!
Here is the models I will need for 2000 points and some ideas for them;
Shas'el with cyclic ion blaster, plasma rifle and targetting array. will be posed to he's either kneeling or flying sideways with a plasma rifle arm pointed foreward
5 Crisis battlesuits
30 fire warriors
10 kroot hounds
and a partridge in a pear tree!
ehem, I meant 2 broadsides
Are you using the macro setting on your camera? It looks like a flower and it helps the camera to focus on things that are close to the lens.
It is tough to make out the close up shots of the Fire Warriors and Kroot so I can't say much, but I think the Kroot fellow looks pretty promising.
I've actually been thinking about repainting my Tau using dip so I'm interested to see how this all turns out.
Good luck getting through this with your work schedule! You can do it!
Try to take more care when taking your pics; get the lighting right, put down some white paper background, and try to crop your pictures before posting them. Also, as said, use the macro mode on the camera to get a better focus on the models when they're zoomed in.
Looking forward to seeing what you can do; that Kroot looks pretty good but with some of the blurry pics it's hard to make out.
