Greetings Commanders.

Here is an update of the Ta'unar supremacy battle suit that I am working on, now with added chipping! :D

Image

Basing has been started with the addition of Armageddon Dust and Dunes over the sand on the base for added texture. Next up will be adding a dry brush of Terminatus Stone before a heavy was of Seraphim Sepia to finish.

That thing is such a monstrosity, the base plate would stamp out my whole Tau force in one. Haha.

Maybe it could but your Tau are some of the most iconic looking miniatures out there, so you've definitely cornered the market in 'Quality' over 'Quantity'. :)

Greetings Commanders.

Preparations are going well for the introduction to 8th edition.

I am pretty much done now with the Ta'unar now that the base surface has been completed. All that's now left to do is run an eye over it and spot anything that needs a touch up here and there.

Greetings Commanders.

So last night was all about painting up my Coldstar battle suit and my original Pathfinders. With 8th just around the corner I thought it prudent to get myself a Coldstar to supliment my options with my T'au army and having reactivated my original Pathfinders as we are going to need as many markerlights as possible.

At least with the Rail rifles we don't have to target the same enemy unit if we don't want to. :biggrin:

I know! Pathfinders are now a very solid choice again. I'm thinking of MSUing them with maxed out special weapons and a Shas'Ui. I think that gives me 5 4 man weapons teams at the moment 3 squads with rifles 2 Ion... I'm yet to see what can be done with the amount of drone that they can take!

Also that Supremacy suit is amazing looking! I can't wait to see what it's rules are like... Along with the other FW items.

Agree on all fronts, I've luckily had the chance to admire these items elsewhere on social media too so you know my thoughts already :D

Commander is looking great and makes me eager to use the kit. :)

Greetings Commanders.

So I've been busily working away on my Ghostkeel and so I thought that it would be best to show my esteemed colleagues my progress thus far.

Thanks Tael, appreciated. :)

The kit is such a nice kit to work with and it allows you to build a standard commander suit or the Coldstar variant. I think that you would really have fun working with them both. :D

Indeed, and the Ghostkeel looks great - although considering the wear, looks like he's not a pilot for slinking about, but gets stuck in :D

Your weathering technique has really evolved over the last couple of models too.

Yeah I agree with Tael you can really see the confidence building in your technique as you move from unit to unit. I also agree that the new commander kit is awesome! Now with the new rules I may have to get one to build up in a quad gun stance. I think though the Ghostkeel is my current top choice for kits. I'm not even sure why I see more potential in the RIptide still, but it has a charm to it I can't resist!

Thank you for your kind words Fio O Tael. :)

I feel that I have evolved a little bit as this project has progressed.

The Ghostkeel has become the favourite battle suit unit for a lot of people in 8th edition. I'm going to have to re arm one of my Riptides now with the HBC now.

Many thanks Bloodknife92, it's been a learning process for myself. It it has certainly paid off it would seem.

Paints I used:

Grey primer.
Rakarth.
Mechanicus grey.
The Fang or Fenris grey (sept colour for my Tau'shan sept).
Agrax earthshade.
Nuln oil.
Retributor gold.
Moot green.
Leadbelcher.
Rhinox (for the chipping)
White scar.
Abaddon black.
Ulthran grey.

Nice list of paints :) Did you blend the colours yourself on your Ghostkeel's Fusion Collider? Or did you Airbrush it? :)
