Re: Orange Sun Sept - Deet's WIP of awesome things

Hello Orbital, It's been a long time! I've been away from the hobby in general for 7-8 months as I moved twice, got married, honeymoon, etc. Made painting a bit tough. In what little hobby time I've had, I've largely been neglecting my Tau boys, but no more! It's a small thing, but a good way to wor...

Re: Heavy Rail Rifle

I vastly prefer the look of the HRR, but with the help of K'tano's early thread I made some changes to the setup so that I could run the HYMP without it looking cheesy and wound up here: http://advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=22034&p=277361&hilit=hymp#p277361 I think it's WAY...

Re: Welcome to ATT 2016

Noticed the header doesn't link back to the home page, and a good percentage of it doesn't link at all. Intentional? My usual reading pattern is to look through the Recent Topics section, but that's harder to get back to now. Anyone else? Again, beautiful work guys. I know how much goes in to it and...

Re: Ta'unar Magnetizing Question.

For what it's worth, I've always drilled my magnet holes by hand. I have a dremel, but it's too easy for something to go wrong with a power tool when you're working with tiny handheld parts- whether it's destroying the part or taking a chunk out of your hand. Pin vices are cheap, readily available, ...

Re: Airbrushing beginner, need specific application tips

As you may be gathering, there is no set optimal distance. Air pressure, paint thickness, paint opacity, and how far you've got your trigger back (how much paint you're pushing out) all come in to play. Most of the time for base coating, I'm around 25 psi. You're just going to have to learn paint th...

Re: Hello from California

Welcome to another CA gent!

I actually created a Blogger site just for my image hosting. Seems to be a bit more stable than some of the others, plus it's easier to upload to from my phone.

Re: Transport Case

I have a Sabol case that I like a lot. I buy the foam uncut and then custom cut them to fit my figures snugly. I always magnetize my models, but usually just for weapon options. For my Tau, the largest I've put in there is a Broadside, but I've fit a Stormraven in with the wings magnetized and store...

Re: Figuring out my new Tau Scheme

Looking good. Liking the grey and green. I might do up one of the two black areas on his backpack in green too so that you get a little splash of color 360 around the model. Kind of wishing I had done that on mine now.

Re: Drilling Barrels

do a quick search for Micro Drill Bits on Amazon and you can find plenty of good sets for <$6. Many come with the pin vice.

Kael'yn's reco of 1/2-2/3 of the diameter is a good one.
