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,

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...
