Roger- changed. Though I think Havoc sounds better if a little bit imperially... ;)

A little more Chaos, actually-their Heavy Weapons dudes are called Havocs, as are the Havoc Missile Launchers. :)

Re: Tan'quil Cadre- 54mm Tau

Hello all

I picked this up from a chap on the coolminiornot.com website. It's 54mm scale so fits in nicely with my Artemis and Eldar Ranger. It's not very well painted, but the sculpt is brilliant and I recommend it to Tau lovers everywhere!!! I'll post some more pics when I've finished some more of the details etc.

I order the mini and last month, and all I can say is wow.

First I got the model in 7 days, that's shipping from Spain to the East coast of the U.S.

Next the model is fantastic. It had very little flash to remove and just needed a warm bath to remove the mold releasing agent and it was good to go.

Putting it together was a breeze, he molded pins and holes into the the large parts, so all you have to do it drill the already started holes and the pin on the opposite piece slides right in.

The details are great and now I'm just waiting to paint it.

I also did a little conversion work, so that the model is wearing his helmet and holding the pulse carbine is his left hand. ( I have a pet peeve how in 40k when they promote you they take away your helmet :fear: )

Anyway, I'll take some pictures before and after painting.

Definitely give the whole experience a 10!

Well, glad to see you're back! The larger fire warrior is quite interesting. Takes back to the original concept art I see. He looks like he could use some highlighting though, looks a little flat.

You know I had tossed around the idea of using IG models besides Cadians and Catachans as auxiliaries and now that I've actually seen it done I like it even more. Great job on the Ethereal, the one bad thing I have to say however is that the Hat on the Por Caste member is WAY to big IMHO. It looks like a techno sumbrero that would break his neck :D.

The model is highlighter and washed. I think it's a combination of the picture and that I don't like heavy highlights.

Awesome Tigershark you got there. It's a real good unit on the battlefield. Sucks it's got a nerf with the change of D weapons and Ordinance. But other than that it preforms like a champ hence I have2 of them. :)

These are outstanding. What green are you using for the tech glow? The Grey and Orange are a great combination, you've managed to make these look finished where I've seen others using greys which make the model look merely primed.

Hi Modelglue,

Thanks for you kind comments, I've found that using the Forgeworld modelling powders has really helped get over the grey 'primer' feel, because that's largely what the flat colour is - primer with a drybrush and wash! I used the citadel technical paint Nihilakh Oxide for the glow; I just put plenty in the recess and ensured it spilt over and then added a blob of white in the middle!
