Somehow I missed that you acquired supremacy armor. How is that model to build? I'm thinking about grabbing one over the summer, assuming that my hobby backlog is manageable at the time.

It is a very satisfying build. Just a whole different size of beast.

Go for it...

I am tempted to get another one ;)

The Barracuda AX-5-2s are now complete and have joined my Air Caste today...

Next on the work bench will be either a bucket full of old style XV8s or the Shield wall - both are part painted but I have too many other shiny toys too :)

I have one week of painting left until my Xmas break so I am setting myself the target to complete the Tau bunker which I have been working on over the last few years - a bit of a clearout of the painting queue is needed :)

Was this a scratchbuild or something from a supplier? Looks great.

This will answer your question :)
[Review] Hive City Terrain Futuristic Empire Bunker Scenery

Finally, after many false starts and delays, the Tau have received their first bunker.

This was originally purchased in late 2013 from http://hivecityterrain.co.uk/ and has had some detailing added internally from my bits box.

I just have far too many projects on the go at the same time...

I know that feeling! (Projects)

Oh wow.. that is very very cool. I had best add this to our Alternate Models topic!

Just realised how long since I have worked on anything Tau :(



The cure: I have just started to assemble my first KV128 Stormsurge and have bought the conversion kit to add arms and shoulder mounts for the missile pods to give it a little old style XV88 railside vibe.

The Pulse Driver Cannon and Pulse Blastcannon will be magnetised so as to swap between them plus the secondary weapons will also be magnetised.

It will have the standard leg position as this is my first but if I decide to get 2 more then I will have a play with the poses.

I should be at a stage to post some photos at the weekend. Planning on 3-4 weeks to completion :roll:

Work has been progressing at a satisfactory speed and the individual assemblies are now being primed so detailing will begin next week.


For now here are some teaser photos


These are the body with the crew compartment fitted along with the mounts for the missile containers.
