Painted Y'vahra

Here are some pics of my Y'vahra, painted to go with my Tau army of many years vintage. I found the resin upper torso a bit of a pain to assemble in places, but nothing drastic. A great model. Need to think about what to paint next :) https://i.imgur.com/CmeS4V3.jpg https://i.imgur.com/GvgMact.jpg h...

Re: Tau Commander

Thanks - it is very similar to the colour I did my PHR in for Dropzone Commander, and I figured it would be a good look for a centerpiece model

Re: Tau Commander

My work is always exactly what I intended it to be. I just do not always fully understand my intentions in the earlier stages of a project :P

Re: What should I use as Farsights sword?

I converted a R'myr to Farsight, and used a Wraithlord sword as a template. You can see the thread here - http://www.advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=16243 Unfortunately the photo links don't work because I finally took my website offline earlier this year :dead: EDIT: hope this works...

Re: Confused by magnets!

I have been magnetizing my Tau for nearly 10 years (eek!). For Crisis Suits I use 3mm x 2mm magnets, just one per weapon, and have never had any issues with them wobbling or spinning.

Tau Commander

Since I am getting back into 40k for the first time since 6th Edition, I have finally picked up a few of the more recent plastic kits, including the new Tau Commander. I am just testing some pose options, so any feedback on this would be appreciated. He is meant to be in flight; taking off, landing ...

Re: 1st 8th edition game - Tau v Harlequins 1500pts

With the D3 damage Missile Pods were very effective against the vehicles. ATS really did not do anything in this game since every target had a 4+ invulnerable save, but I can see it being useful in nearly every other matchup. I would consider making him my Warlord in the next game, as making it Long...

1st 8th edition game - Tau v Harlequins 1500pts

I played my first game of 40k 8th edition in a Matched Play game against Harlequins at 1500pts. We did not use Tactical Objectives, to keep our first game that bit easier to manage. Tau Army Total: 1499 Outrider and Vanguard Detachments: Command Points: 5 • HQ - Commander w/ 3x Missile Pod, ATS (156...

I received mine yesterday: http://incunabulum.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/wpid-Micro-Arts-Tau-Defence-Line.jpg Very good casts with no bubbles or voids I can see. Quite a plasticky resin, very smooth and a little oily. These should paint up a treat, and no clean up needed other than a quic...

Re: [Article Submission] Sniper Drone Team

I have played a few games with a max squad of SDTs, and in every game two things have happened. The opponent prioritizes them above all else, and my Firesight Marksmen have been invaluable sources of markerlight support. So much so that I am converting up six more Firesight Marksmen to try out three...
