That marine battle was pretty rough for the Astartes - having to walk into that fire storm, ouch. Nice to see the defense wall in action though. Enjoyed the photos!

- It was a firefight for sure. Tau infantry vs most things I have tried them against are great. With Pod support, they are amazing. Genestealer cult got pulse murdered by them as well. Switching from other stuff to Kill Team GW campaign from the summer. I will be posting updates on that and gothic for a bit. Brain has gone crazy to re-fit my GW fleet and start smoking some ships to hulks.

You can see it in the fleet pic, but I read a bit on the dorsal mount for the 3rd orca on the Explorer class capital ship. Based on ship layout, description, and fluff I picked to mod a dorsal mount where you see it on the pick.

Finished enough for board killing...

Dal'yth's second squad is Guevesa Elysians from T'ros.
Armor is Elysian standard from T'ros with Dalyth additions.

Drop pod behind them is a custom support item for the Elysian's. One ground stabilizer, a modified SMS launcher, and designed to be packed into a Elysian heavy weapons drop case.

Thank you Tael,

In bound to add to it is a merchant, 1 more explorer, 3 GW orbitals, and a full cup of hope that I can get more BFG games in.

I love all of our BFG old articles. To build fluff heavy forces, there is such depth of knowledge to roll around in.
I also recommend BFG Armada, the video game. Their Tau fleets are very spot on to the FW line of ships.

Great updates, interesting to see some paint on the alternate models. Always liked Elysians as a different Gue'Vesa to the usual Cadian varations. Nice work :D

Started some No Man's Land

Dalyth Kill Team - T'Ros Vets

Image

First Fight was with imperial Fists, Break the line as defenders.

Image

Here, AO's whole team dies and she fights off 4 imperial guard in a fierce battle to block thier advance.

Image

Guevesa Elysians provided suppressing fire from across the ruins. Guides SMS shot neutralized key weapon emplacements.

Killed 2 full squads of Imperial Fist Marines (1 tac, 1 stern). Stern guard ammo cause 100% of casualties.

I lost (dead) A teasm standard bearer and 2 rifleman from A team. Also Sniper Ryan from B team. (4, 1 dead 3 wounded)

MVP - Team A's team leader, AO. Survived constant pinning fire, assault from 4 marines, and blocked rounds meant to kill her commander which ensured victory and prevented great loss. 3 Rounds of dedicated killing trying to drop her and her team. She was the linchpin.

Liking that cammo all over again - nice force. Have to admit it, the Or'Es Gue'la turned out in good paint work too - always nice facing off with an equally well painted force.

Tight game, but nicely done Sir :)

- So as I have posted. We are playing A:SW and I played a few games as Tau. The rules looked poorly written, so I switched to a core rule book armies assuming they were more balanced to the game.

The Rust Wolves:

- More gothic and other projects in the works. But RL needs to layoff a bit!

Go with imgur like any sane person. The more people leave photobucket the better. Hate that site. :D

No warning, they blocked access to my own photos and destroyed years of uploads on this site. Just trashed all of it and my account. Sorry to all for the photos lost.

I hate Photobucket...that is kind of impressive on their part.
