Re: nix0n's "The Unknown" Cadre [WIP log]

That is a nice conversion (and much better than the one I did when I tried to make a Gue'la heavy weapons team); however the DS8s are not carried around the battlefield. Carried in racks along the flanks of Orca Dropships, tactical support turrets are automated defence batteries that provide suppor...

Re: nix0n's "The Unknown" Cadre [WIP log]

Those are really nice. I'm a huge fan of subtle or elegant conversions, and I think you've nailed theres. I'll be back here for inspiration. Totally agree with n1md4, subtle and smart. The Ethereal is quite slick with the neat helmet idea :) Sorry for a really late reply but I am very thankful for ...

Re: Jarhead

I have heard the Tau codex is "Soon TM" :-? I have had a look at the Rapid Insertion Force box, unfortunately the price is slightly prohibitive. The plan is to run with the start collecting box, with a fireblade, to help me decide whether I actually enjoy playing in person. Living in Sout...

Re: Jarhead

Welcome Jarryd! It is really nice to see that you have an active social group of friends in war-gaming! I bet it will get you an upper hand on learning the way of the tabletop battlefield rather quick. Your timing couldn't be any better since it has been officially announced that our own Codex is on...

Re: Promotion: Arka0415 to 'Vre

I am not surprised at all!

Arka0415 has provided multitude of great topics and discussions here on ATT that are informative and helped to learn more about the game and the lore.

Great job Arka and congratulations!

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

You all sure seem so happy :D I am still skeptical about that quote "Commander Spam will be fixed". For some reason I get huge foreshadowing vibes of this one saying that nothing much else will be changed... I would love to be proven wrong as soon as possible. *eagerly waiting for codex pr...

Re: nix0n's "The Unknown" Cadre [WIP log]

Here we are, well into 2018, still with little to no progress made and even more projects to come :eek: (dunno why I over-dramatize this so much) It's been a while since I posted anything meaningful here but now I've got something decent to show. I'd like to share my achieved progress on building, c...

Re: A'kish Vior'la Cadre

Amazing work Bloodknife!
I can't even tell apart which pathfinders have been magnetized. they just look so good and the arm fitting is seamless.

What do you exactly mean by "painters block"?

Also now following you on ig ;)

Re: It it worth it to field small numbers of vehicles?

I might as well tell my two cent's on this topic if Arka is so keen on hearing other's opinion. My tabletop experience is still pretty nonexistent but I must admit that I always liked the idea of troops being deployed onto the battlefield through dedicated APC's. My future cadre that I'm working on ...

Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

The original color palette compliments itself in such large infantry miniature numbers! Great looking progress and kinda makes me wonder why the heck is it taking me so long to work on my miniatures. I believe I need more determination into this hobby. Quick question, are you going to field all 26 o...

Re: nix0n's "The Unknown" Cadre [WIP log]

Thanks to everyone for solid advice regarding varnishes! I just arrived back home from abroad and wasn't able to comment back earlier (mobile browser version is so clunky that writing even a simple response on my phone screen would have been disastrous) :D I will start with Tael's advice and try out...

Re: A'kish Vior'la Cadre

Awesome! Thank you so much! I will most definitely try magnetizing my pathfinders too (gotta make the most of that plastic kit). I'll just point out the details again just so that I understood everything correctly (my english may fail me whenever I get so excited) :P - 2x1mm magnets, probably N45 ra...

Re: A'kish Vior'la Cadre

I am afraid that I'm turning into this obnoxious fan that compliments everything you do :P Must admit that the magnetizing has been executed beautifully and the end result looks super clean and flush. I would like to ask some advice for such task if you are willing to share: - I suppose you used 2mm...

Re: Onmyou's Motivation Service

niXon I really like your clean paint scheme. How are you gonna paint the bases to go with them? Not quite sure yet. I am thinking of using citadel's stirland mud for basing with a heavy agrax shade and a light tan/grey drybrush to keep the base dark brown and not cause too much attention with colors.

Re: A'kish Vior'la Cadre

BIG applause! These custom XV-88s look like are ready to kick some butt! Great execution at a nice pace. Myself getting even one Crisis suit done will take eternities (that's why I am still fiddling with infantry models and not getting all of the appropriate materials for magnetizing my first set of...
