Apologies to all members for my treasonous defection to the Imperial cause of late
But have heart - El'mo is back in the arms of the Greater good
I have been slowly stockpiling models and can now release to my fellow Tau that the production will soon be starting.
The to do list:
3 x XV8's (plan to play with the poses/magnetise weapons etc)
3 x XV88's (These will be converted from XV8s and bits from Paulsongames [Railguns and missile pods ordered] - when they arrive
3 x Skyrays/Hammer/Railheads or Devilfish. The plan is to fully magnetise them for multiuse after all the experience I gained with the Vindicator/Predator models.
Pathfinders (got a good deal on the last of the metal blisters)
I will also need to revisit the camouflage schemes on my old suits and skimmers to bring it into line with my XV84/89 project
(this will be a massive job on its own and I am not looking forward to it.
Planning to do a Gue-vesa (using Cadians or Mantic Corporation troops
- depending on the scale - see photo) grouping of allies.
These will not be official allies at first (more of a side track) but I will see how it expands.
At the moment the initial plan is to go for cloth like this:
And armour the same colour as my Fire Warriors but with a more obvious highlight to tie them together, but still stand out.
I will put up a photo of the test model soon
They will mainly use Imperial weapons but the will be the odd pulse weapon thrown in the mix.
At the moment I only have about 30-35 troops but vehicles will follow later.
I will use this tread as my WIP but will also post completed models on my Gallery thread
More to come.......
