The priming is done. I have used Mask-fx for the splinter pattern but have not removed it yet as it makes highlighting the green easier.

Busy, busy, busy... Loads to do :)

Very nice! I'm also not sure on the AX designation of the original Barracuda. It'd be interesting to find out.

Great update, can only dream of such models in my collection - then the years it would take for me to acutally paint them! haha.

I'm with Tael in his sentiment; too many models, so little time. And here El'mo is just smashing through giant flocks of flyers. Geesh.

Jood Gob BTW!

I'm still waiting for magnets to get here so I can finish my 'Cuda. I'll probably do something temporary to get it painted and working.

I have not started the 'Cuda detailing yet but am concentrating on the Tiger shark at the moment.

Photos of the current state later :)

Thanks guys - I had to start clearing out my painting backlog so after the company of SM it was time for Tau. ;)

The splinter camouflage is done along with the low-vis grey belly. Just leaves the detailed work and the weapons to do.
The cockpit has been removed to make the interior detailing easier.

I am planning on hopefully being completed by next weekend or mid week after then I will be starting on the Barracudas.

Nice work. I do like the split camouflage and with my colour scheme being so light I pretty much had to with a very dark grey underbelly for night fighting. It's all a bit world war 2 but it suits Tau flyers so well!

Ah yah - speed indeed. Also, your technique noticeably crisper these days, definitely establishing your style :)
