Re: Help identifying this color mix palette?

I'd definitely second the wet palette recommendation, it makes a huge difference.

Re: Where to go after start collecting box?

If you want to run gunline Tau I'd say the Cadre Fireblade is a must have.

And yes, you can build a Devilfish with the Hammerhead kit. Might need some smart magnetisation on the turret mount at the front, but nothing too hard.

Re: Hoob's Tash'var Cadre project log

Pretty quick and lazy paintjob, wasn't aiming for anything more than tabletop quality, but I'm happy with them. Few spots here and there I'll need to touch up before I put a varnish on them, but other than that I'm calling these done. https://i.imgur.com/6t4beHk.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ACTUheR.jpg

Re: Hoob's Tash'var Cadre project log

Heavy WIP here, but I thought I should put some content in here. Decided to try to get a de-cloaking effect on my Stealth Suits. Think it came out okay; the cloaked halves need to be re-done a bit, they're kind of crappy as is, but I like the transition. The uncloaked portions are barely touched, on...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Go for an obscure Sept that isn't likely to get rules and then just choose the sept tactics you like most?

Seems like a silly thing to allow to hold you up.

Re: Sniper Drones - Amusingly Misleading Description

All the unit descriptions on the website are fluff, they're not really meant to reflect the rules directly or anything. The rail rifle bit is a weird bit of misinformation, but the rest is just narrative fluff, nothing more. Same goes for pretty much every army's storefront descriptions.

Re: Hey there!

I'm out in the Eastern Suburbs at the moment, grew up in the Yarra Ranges. Slowly crawling my way towards the city over the years, probably going to move further in next year to make Uni and work easier.

Re: Hoob's Tash'var Cadre project log

Been a while since I updated this. Here's my Crisis Suits, all done save for the weapons. I can still spot a lot of areas which could do with a touchup, but I think I'll leave it for the most part, focus on getting an army on the table.

Re: Ironsky's desert operations Cadre

Where'd you get those trees used on the pterodactyl Kroot base? I keep seeing them all over but I'm not sure where they come from.

Amazing work, by the way.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Tau players make up a significant portion of the playerbase and they don't want to lose those players?

People seem to be acting like Tau players are some downtrodden underdogs when we've actually been treated quite well by GW for the last couple of editions, and are one of the most played Xeno races.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

That might be optimistic, Forgeworld and GW releases never seem to line up very much.

Re: Coldstar or 4 FB?

Magnets are super easy, try not to let it intimidate you too much. Lot of good tutorials floating around on the internet (unfortunately most of the great ones on here got eaten by Photobucket, but I think a few still work).

Re: Hoob's Tash'var Cadre project log

Here's today's progress; http://i.imgur.com/Qyhnfpt.jpg Second Crisis Suit all done save for the backpack, which I'll probably paint up tomorrow afternoon. Weapons are all still bare plastic/resin, gonna do them in batch probably. Aim is to outfit these guys all with triple flamers, but I've got mag...

Hoob's Tash'var Cadre project log

https://i.imgur.com/EgTzejT.png Recently got back into the hobby for the first time since I was a kid. Twelve years is a hell of a break, but I think I'm getting into the swing of things. Currently going with a forest camo (using the term camo loosely here) theme for my guys. Here's the first squad...
