My fledgling Tau Army

Post#1 » Nov 20 2014 06:54

Hi all

this is my first post on ATT so hello to you all!

I'm beginning to collect and build a Tau army and thought I'd share my progress with you so far.

I've got a few units under my belt now so I'll start by showing them in the order I've produced them. I'm blogging it all on my blog "http://wargames-wasteland.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Tau" and will put updates here as I progress too.

The first thing I painted was a squadron of Forgeworld Tetras:

Thanks, Myrdin

I'll post up another unit in a couple of days - I'm loving painting this army :biggrin:

Those are some very impressive Tetras. I especially like the orange engine glow, I find it a refreshing change from the usual blue glows.

Now, I have noticed that this is your first post anywhere on the forum. I would highly recommend that you take some time out to post up a profile in our membership profiles subforum, as this helps us to get to know you better. In addition, this also has the role of confirming that you have read our Membership Primers, which is important as we do take those guidelines very seriously.

Once again though, very good work on the Tetras. I look forward to seeing the rest of the units you have painted and seeing your fledgling army grow. :biggrin:

Thanks for the pointer - I'll create a profile early next week.

Thanks also for the positive feedback. I thought the orange glow would work nicely against the blue scheme. I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

Hi all

I've rephotographed the Tetras against a better background and also added a photo of my first Fire Warrior squad.

There's more over on my blog (http://wargames-wasteland.blogspot.co.you... /label/Tau) if you're interested.

Cheers for now.

Hi folks

another item from my growing Tau army - my pathfinders.

Image

These are actually just regular Fire Warrior models with the shoulder pads left off. You can't see from the photo but I've also used Tau grenade packs in place of the usual backpacks. My squad leader is a tank commander model (I thought the binoculars worked for a pathfinder unit). There are two "real" metal pathfinders mixed in for good measure.

There's plenty more Tau (and other stuff) over on my blog at: http://wargames-wasteland.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Tau

Wrong pic for the Pathfinders?

I like your army. Effective paint scheme, nice color selection, clean execution, and good looking basing. Keep it up!
