Found this awesome picture and knew I had to try and make a model of it.

I have been building lots of infantry lately so I gathered all the bits and came up with this.

I think he came out pretty well for a first attempt. I need to clean up the right shoulder greenstuff and overall improve my greenstuff skill but I am happy with the model. What do you think?

First new model of 2016, another Cadre fireblade built from the tau ranger model from wargame exclusive.
I added a lot of bits to bring him to 'life'. The main ones were the original fireblade head, and the new ethereal hand.
Adding gear and clips from the new fire warrior and pathfinder kits give him that commando feel.
Still lots of work to do, but thought I'd share.
What do you think? Comments and questions always appreciated.

How did you get that shade of yellow sepia?

Thanks Routa and Tael, always nice to hear people enjoy the models.

I am really tempted to get another of the ranger model too, but I don't think I could justify yet another fireblade.

However I did just notice these models : http://wargameexclusive.com/shop/greate ... quad-28mm/
and have an idea for a character unit of Ghostkeel Pilots called the Sisters of N'rdas. But that's a project for another time.

Wow hadn't realized it's been so long since I'd added to this project log. I built a lot, re-based some models and even painted a few.

I don't want to flood one entry so here's a few pics of some recent stuff:

Converted Brodside team leader.

Image

Image

double flamer team

Image

cyclonic ion blaster and burst cannon team

Image

Image

That's it for now, hope you like them. As always comments and questions welcome! Thanks for looking!

Another update, summer is almost here and it's new campaign time at the store.

Wanted to share some pictures of my new custom tau scenario from dream spirit studios
as well as a new female ethereal conversion and some paint progress.

Really loving the use of the Shadowsun legs, although I'm confused as to what's going on with the chest...

But I look forward to more of the conversions that you've been doing. :D

It's actually an Infinity model, with tau ethereal parts, and pathfinder arms and feet.

Got some good work done on my Riptide today. Really like how it is coming along, hope you do too.

The wings are from the remora, and the decals from the tau transfer sheer sold on GWs website.
Still more work to do before I finish but proud of my progress so far.

It's almost like those wings are meant to be. That looks awesome. Keep up the hard work.

I like the wings but I'm really no fan of that jetpack mounted ion weapon. Way too bulky for that imo.

Love it. Looks like a big bad transformer jetplane. I will admit the placement of the Ion Accelerator looks a bit odd, but it works. The remora wings are a nice touch. Lastly I love the white strip you painted in the gray panels.

Really loving your stuff, would like to learn more about the following

The terrain, where or how? It looks great

The Devilfish turret, is that an old double burst cannon hammerhead turret with one weapon or a converted skyray turret?

Hi Red, the burst cannon is from the remora from forge world, and the terrain is made by Dreamspirit Wargames studios. you can checkout their facebook page or website. Tell them Andre referred you :biggrin: Thanks for looking and posting.
