Been feeling the muse when it comes to painting lately, so I've been taking advantage as much as possible:
Close up of bubble camo. Yes, I realize how odd it is to paint bubbles as a camo pattern, but I figure "Hey, Tau are aliens! They think differently and maybe even incorporate aspects of their culture/art into elements of warfare.?" That's how I like to think of it, anyway.
And the piranha pictured below. I've never been a fan of the open-topped look for such an advance race. Just seems silly, so I glued long pieces of sprue into the cockpit, covered with putty, then molded green stuff around (with a credit card!) to get the curves right. The cockpit is from the sunshark kit. Very happy with how they turned out! I'm systematically getting all 6 vehicles to the same level before moving on, but eventually I'll get some pics up of the finished product!
These two act as escorts for my Ethereal's Dfish.
Also got some parts done on a bunch of XV8s, a full 20 Firewarriors completed, got in some more bases from Microart Studios (HIGHLY recommended), and a little progress on some Pathfinders.
Mostly for my good.
