. I really wanted to finish them, but when the new codex didn't really help them out any, I just lost the drive to complete them. I usually have several projects going on at once, and RL stuff puts extreme limits on my hobby time.
However, I do have a bit of progress:
I have replicated my Remora Counts-As. I made a slight error with the burst cannons and they are now set a tiny bit farther under the wing. I may just leave them, since hardly anyone will notice. What do you think, better?
Modeling progress is further hampered by my hobby room, or lack thereof. A little while ago the cement ceiling started to collapse, crushing my models! Poor crisis suits. Lots of pinning and repairing had to be done
I also had to move all my modeling stuff out of the room to keep them safe.
So, why not add another project? I'm in the middle of ripping the entire ceiling down and carting out the rubbage.
I have begun to experiment with using Stronghold Assault fortifications in my lists. The obvious choices are Aegis, Bunker, and Vengeance Weapon Battery.
I've begun work on the Aegis, but I am still accumulating the necessary drone components and the shielding effects to go on the flying bases. I'll need to come up with a Tau version of the Comms Relay as well. How hard can that be?
I intend to find some way to replicate the Tau bunker GW made some time ago, but that is in the early stages and I'm still waiting for some inspiration to hit. The VWB is actually partially underway:
Still in the early stages, but the base worked out perfect. I intend to fashion it like an oversized Sentry Drone Turret that carries an Ion Cannon. The overcharged Ion Cannon is pretty close to a Battle Cannon so it was the natural choice. More pics as I progress with that, but tbh holidays and the Aegis will take priority.
