I managed to work in a lot of other spraying while I was working on that Broadside, so there are a few models trickling across the finish line now. I painted up the drones from the Pathfinder sprue without really reading the codex entry. Can't see myself actually fielding them until a codex rewrite, but they look pretty good. Practice I guess.

Also finally painted up a Kroot Hound just in time for a match vs Nidzilla. Those acute senses came in handy! He's probably not 100% done yet, but it was one of my fastest start to finish models yet. Nice when something comes together fast like that. Always rewarding to field new units.

Currently working on a second FW squad. Can't believe I've been playing for over a year now with only 2 troops squads. I'll post up a how to on my paint scheme when they're done, more for my own learning than anything.

Took me forever, but I finally finished my second squad of Fire Warriors.

Here's the Shas'Ui. Arms taken from the tank commander, and carved out helmet with a bow to Tael:

A few assorted poses:

this is probably my favorite shot. Model on the left comes from my 1st squad ever painted in Dec 2012. Model on the right with all I've picked up in the last year in this hobby. Been a lot of fun!

As always, pics and progress shots on my blog in the sig below.

Another bit of fun, my Broadside was featured on today's White Dwarf Daily! Certainly feels like a nice little pat on the back. Now I think I'm going to have to be gunning for a feature in the print version. A ways off perhaps, but gotta have a goal somewhere in between where I am now and a Slayer Sword.

Camouflage? Where we're going we don't need camouflage.

When you think 'orange tau' you just think 'oh christ, no...' but looking at these my only thought is 'daaaaaamn!'
Those are some fine looking fire warriors and the orange/green contrast on the kroot is perfect. Add to that the dirty grimy stuff around exhausts and it all comes together so naturally it makes me jealous!

The orange/blue/white on the tanks make me think emergency services...

Ha! Thanks man. Yeah, aside from just liking orange, that was kind of part of the plan for me. So often I see really hideous brightly colored models that just don't work, and and I kind of wanted to prove that it could be done. I understand it's not for everyone. They're certainly a bit garish, but I kind of wanted something unapologetic- camo be damned!

Funny with the emergency services. Hadn't thought of that. In the US, you might see an ambulance in those colors rarely, but I've certainly seen those colors on emergency vehicles abroad. I suppose the comparison doesn't really bother me.

Tau'va, brethren. I've been a little silent on my Tau boys for a while and I thought I'd show why.

I present to you my first squad of Grey Knights Terminators: Model Porn Extraveganza:

All those details take for freaking ever! Glad to have one squad finally knocked down. Thanks to Patchoro and Persifal for the inspiration.
