The chimeras also look great; it's hard to make grey look good but you've definitely done it.

If those are decals they look really well done (can't see the trim) and if it's freehand - great again.


The guys is on a rope so it isn't hard to transport it, I have it in a sabel double wide 4" deep for the valk and some chimeras on the side; those are decals, I brush over the decals after they are dry with GW gloss varnish to seal it, then a matte clear acrylic from a hobby store to dull it before matte varnish it.

I've ordered some flavor heads for conversion from madrobots: a set of personality heads and a set of veterans with rebreathers. They're going to be my 'expendables' ops team for my inquisitor.

I'm really fond of this one. How easy is it to work with that kit? I had considered buying some to use as "Human Auxiliary" tetras just because I liked the model so much. Obviously though, I'd want to "Tau-ify" the kit so if it's difficult to work with I may just go with standard tetras.

The kit imo is easy, though some parts are fragile. I tend to paint certain parts separately then glue them together. The tauros is about the same size as the tetra but slightly wider. I'd give a go.

That's pretty awesome. Such wonderful work on one of the coolest looking Imperial Guard tanks I've ever seen. Excellent both kit wise and paint wise.

The Tanith are toughest regiment in fluff for sure! I am currently smoothing over areas of scratch off imperial symbol with soft greenstuff and retouching them up, and drilling all the gun barrels, lots of work, but its the next step to make my army better. After that I may update my catachans with some tattoos as I learn to do it well enough on the taniths.

update: knight titans seen above, wyvern, and lord commissar on 1st pg, after my move I plan to work on the 4th knight titan, imperial navy arvus lighter, harlequin solitaire for a comp, dark eldar bomber, ork flash gitz, some commissions, then redo part of my IG(50 or so cadian, 50 catachan, sentinels, etc) as they weren't properly cleaned of mold lines.
