Re: (BFG) Tau fleet- The Great White (and Tan) Fleet

This is starting to get my fingers itching to start collecting BFG now... Stop it - I have enough grey plastic without starting something new :( Great work though :biggrin: Good thing that Battlefleet Gothic is mostly grey resin and white metal then. ;) Unless you want to go with the Imperial Navy ...

Re: 8th edition

So it begins... I can't really say I'm looking forward to all this, not least because I've only just started getting back into 40k in strength and don't really fancy the prospect of having to get an entirely new set of rules all over again (I'm already sitting on four of them as it is). I only pray ...

Re: Kakapo's Cadre Redux

Right then, here are the final two test models. https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-S_Bg1YN85mY/WNROjNj3I_I/AAAAAAAAAus/46m_Hv1CQO0-JcPNJhImr72LLMDIgQNJwCEw/s1600/001D.JPG There weren't that many wild experiments this time, as I've pretty much nailed down the paint scheme I want. The main one this time was o...

Re: A'kish Research Defence Initiative (Project Log)

I can't believe that after having looked at pictures of them since they were first released, I have only just now noticed that the default Riptide and Broadside models only have one helmet antenna. I largely agree with you about the conversion - it definitely makes the helmet look a lot more balance...

Re: (BFG) Farsight/Tau fleet - The Red Ocean

Mass painting Gothic is a challenge. GW and FW models also have different styles to them. That means different approaches to how to paint the scheme. One trick that many veteran Battlefleet Gothic admirals often use for mass painting is drybrushing. The way details are sculpted on many Battlefleet ...

Re: (BFG) Tau fleet- The Great White (and Tan) Fleet

More work in progress.... We are now sister fleets! We will rule the Gulf... ---- What were your thoughts on the third orca mount for the explorer class ships? I made one for the ship in the picture. But I am interested for the next explorer I build. Excellent! Together we shall show the Gue'la who...

Re: Kakapo's Cadre Redux

You remind me of myself. My story follows the same progress, although I didn't start at 6, I started at 14 and did semi-ok paintwork, but when I returned to the hobby last year, I was blown away by my ability to paint. I had no idea where it had come from! Your paint work looks phenomenal! I can't ...

Re: KX-139 Ta'unar Supremacy Armour discussion

People love to complain about the Nexus. They really do, forgetting that the damn thing has blind, and is a st 10 ordnance weapon. Yeah it won't erase titans but it WILL flash-fry mobs, especially nids, orcs and guard. I think the reason why people tend to gloss over those attributes is that with a...

Cyanoacrylate is the fancy technical name for the active ingredient in superglue. Any superglue should have it in it.

Re: (BFG) Tau fleet- The Great White (and Tan) Fleet

Got to be the single largest Tau fleet on the planet :D Great idea for the neutral cloth to photograph them - quite envious of the kor'vattra haha. The scary thing is that if it hadn't been for the demise of the Specialist Games in 2013 it would have been even larger... The general system I've used...
