Re: Do you paint in batches, or one-by-one?

I do mine by batches of color. So prime a bunch of things then base coat, then secondary color (all by airbrush) and maybe a third color (still by air brush) then go through with a brush and do one model at a time.

Re: [WIP] Cadre Fireblade conversion

From my experience it depends on how thick the green stuff is and the application and the general temperature of the room. I've never made anything with it I have used it to gap fill before which is typically pretty thin but even then it'll probably be about a few hours before it's solid enough to h...

Re: [WIP] Cadre Fireblade conversion

A touch of Vaseline (or a similar product) keeps it from being too tacky, easier to smooth out, downside is that it increases the curing time (but not by a whole lot from what I can tell)

Re: Where to go after start collecting box?

The Hammerhead doesn't have the burst Cannon turret under the nose that the 'Fish has. But you can still call it a Fish, or buy the bitz off eBay and magnetize that sucker.

Re: Where to go after start collecting box?

What an interesting time to join Tau :D I would agree with you Pathfinders are a pretty good addition, as is a Devilfish(or two, but honestly I'd say get the Hammerhead/Sky ray kit, because the tank body is the same) For sure magnetize your Crisis suits. (Can't stress that enough) also the drones. J...

Re: Help!! Airbrushing advice needed

I upgraded to a one with a tank because after about 10 minutes my compressor would get too hot and start spitting out water. The tank one; I honestly couldn't tell you. Ive used it almost consistently for an hour and it'll cycle on for a little bit then cut off no water yet. the one I got was: http:...

Re: Help!! Airbrushing advice needed

My setup that I use is a Iwata Neo air brush and a Master Compressor (from tcpglobal.com Very good prices). The compressor I have has a tank on it which reduces the amount that it has to be on thereby reducing the build up of moisture and what not. After that I do about a 1:1:1 or so of paint:water:...

Re: Help!! Airbrushing advice needed

Have you checked the water trap to see if it's full? What kind of ratio of paint:water:thinner mix are you using? What brand of paint are you using? As for PSI I generally run mine at about 45 and it works for most things.

Re: Fire warrior / Breacher combos 7th vs Smurfs

Ahhh I did miss that.
HH/Longstrike you can use your DFish. It's the same body. Just either pick up the turret bits or proxy it. Actually probably just disregard everything I said then lol.

Re: Fire warrior / Breacher combos 7th vs Smurfs

wait are you trying to destroy the Pods before or after they do the dropping? Before dropping some EWO broadsides with HYMP should do the trick. Longstrike would be good too. Paint it with marker lights via Pathfinders or a D.C. Commander with marker drones give your Army the reroll 1s. Or are you w...

Re: XV15 conversion help

Well that and for modeling reasons the XV15 is smaller than the 25 meaning it can hide behind terrain easier and what not. Personally I have both and if someone would like I can post a pic of them side by side later.

Re: What to get next?

I would say to get the turret options to turn your Fish into Hammerheads. With Longstrike our tanks are actually really good. Aside from that probably 1-2 Ghostkeels. Since we don't have the OSC formation any more there's no real reason to have more than that. And depending on how our Codex shakes o...

Re: In need of help. I can't seem to get past 3rd turn.

Well taking a quick look through your list the biggest problem in seeing is that you're trying to be a gunline in Maelstrom and typically that's hard to pull off especially if the cards you draw aren't the objectives you're already holding so maybe try playing a different type of game? Second proble...

Re: Expanding my new Cadre?

I would say that looks pretty good to get started after that try and pick up some Hammerheads/Skyrays (even though Skyrays aren't very good right now). They use they same chassis as the devilfishyhe only difference is that a Dfish has a burst Cannon on the nose where as the other 2 have a "targ...

Re: [Project Log] Shas'o Dre's Farsight Enclaves Cadre

There was somebody who did a conversion which I thought was pretty cool. They took part of the rails off the Ion Accelerator and glued it on the back as like a "cooling" system (with a few other modifications of course). It's floating around on this site somewhere but I can't remember wher...

Re: Hunter Cadre: Heavy Support Options?

I'm just saying that if he uses the Riptide for the Ion spot he could then use the Missilesides in the heavy slot and fill that role.
