Re: The Nightwind Cadre - Mike's Glacial Tau - Now with Manta

Hi All, You'll be glad to hear the Nightwind Cadre is far from death :dead: ! Due to work and family life and a few projects my Tau have had to take a bit of a back seat for a while. With the up coming Golden Trolls painting competition, my focus is back on my Tau. The plan is to scratch build flame...

Re: Flight Stand?

I'm another proponent of the brass rod style flying bases, allows me to give the flyer a bit more height than the standard GW base and lets you go to town on the scenic base.

Re: Evolution of the War Room

Thank you all for all the great comments! :biggrin: I have to say I can't recommend the container kits enough, they're fun to build and relatively quick to paint. Best of all they are so different painting wise to Tau, its a great way to break up the massive backlog of Tau we all undoubtedly have! W...

Re: Arrow's Fio Log: Finishing the Arrow Pattern XV8

If your after some Tau inspired scenery, take a look at Hivecityterrain.co.uk.

I have 3 of their bunkers/emplacements, a shield generator and also the bastion (though that's not up in their shop at the moment).

Really good terrain and will feature in my War Room plog in the future.

Cheers,

Re: Demorte's Tau Cadre - Project Log

Not sure if it will help, but my recipe for painting white (GW paints)...

- Base with Celestra Grey
- Wash with Nuln Oil
- Layer up with Ulthuan Grey
- White Scar for the highlight.

Hope it helps.

Cheers,
Valaas

I am really liking the launching pose also; and admire those early Forgeworld suits and their design style. I'll second for the update :D Sorry Tael, no suit update just yet but I promise to get one up soon! Finding myself jumping between various projects at the moment, depending on whats going on ...

Re: Demorte's Tau Cadre - Project Log

Welcome aboard Demorte! The drones are looking great and follow the same crisp clean scheme as my own, with minimal weathering. I tend to put a watered down wash across my base colours prior to highlighting to make the highlights standout a bit more. I use a a combination of brush and airbrush for m...

Re: Evolution of the War Room

Thanks for all the comments! :D Yup just primer...the Forge World Realm of Battle Board takes the level of textured detail through the roof and is actually another form of resin rather than plastic. I'll definitely be picking up more in the future. I agree, the surface finish is fantastic for terrai...

Hey Valaas Beautiful pose on a beautiful battlesuit! That a Forgeworld R'myr suit right? The pose you have chosen really highlights the graceful curves of the design. Can't wait to see it completed!

Re: The Nightwind Cadre - Mike's Glacial Tau - Now with Manta

Time is being split at the moment between the War Room and the Nightwind Cadre, not much progress on my Tau. Once my Kappa Base tile is complete I will be able to take a break from terrain and focus solely on my Tau. In the meantime, here is a WIP of my Commander Nightwind: http://i32.photobucket.co...

Re: Evolution of the War Room

Looking brilliant - what primer are you using to base the painting of the sections? Thanks for the Feedback, it is definitely keeping me motivated :D Tael, the steps for each section are below, though the first 2 steps are for the Forge World sections only, if its just GW plastic sections you can s...

Re: Arrow's Fio Log: Ooooooh, Barracuda!

Love the jet pack vents and weapon options, I'd definitely be up for buying some of those to add some variety to my crisis teams.

Barracuda bits look cool as well....I need a wingman for my old Barracuda. ;)

Re: The Nightwind Cadre - Mike's Glacial Tau - Now with Manta

Excellent work on the sniper team, that'll look sharp on the table. The Manta is undergoing good progress too. Do you plan to hand brush the whole thing, or are you going to make significant use of an airbrush/spray cans? Thanks for the great comments. Manta will be a combination of brush work and ...

Re: Evolution of the War Room

Glad the War Room is encouraging some more hobby madness! I can't wait to get back in there for the Kappa Base Assault and get the flat screen playing something suitably epic in the back ground, with some cold beers in the built in fridge! This just makes me want my gaming table that much more. Exce...
