I would like to Introduce you to my Cadre the Mon'la Rua. Translated Winter Warriors, they hail from Bork'an.
They are Winter warfare specialists and have recently taken on the dual role as a Gue'vesa training Cadre.
I have been collecting for two years now and have built up a sizeable army. I can currently field 3000Pts of Tau firepower, and I am pleased to boast that all are currently painted to at least tabletop standards. Ive also started building an allied Imperial guard force. Filing off Imperial guard insignia and replacing weapons. I'm happy with the results so far.
Orks are my regular opponent
Ive only recently discovered the joys of forge world. They are incredibly detailed!

The male and female fire warriors piloting these two broadsides have been close friends since they were small. There is much rumour through the ranks that they are more than that though...
The Leader of this Crisis squad was passed over for leadership of the Cadre when a disastrous decision in the midst of battle caused two full units of fire warriors to be annihilated. He seeks to redeem himself.
The fire warriors of the Mon'la Rua have few ground transports. Electing to feel the cold on their skin. The Fireblades believe the only way to truly conquer the elements is to be immersed in it.
In the fierce blizzards often fought in, high speeds often offer poor visibility and muddle instruments, often leading to many pilots getting lost. Pirana pilots have become the butt of jokes in the cadre. Especially among the pathfinders. So a Piranha pilot and a Ogryn walk into a bar...
A fireblade always leads from the front.

The Chimera's have proved to be quite hardy against the cold. Surprising many earth casts attached to the Cadre, and causing a few redesigns of prototypes.
Aircaste support! To date has never been shot down.
Riptide heavy support.
I'm still not happy with how the lightning effect turned out. If anybody has suggestions on how to improve this, I'm all ears!
Stealth suits. Ready for next Assignment.
Next on the docket is the remaining Guard units and tanks!
Please feel free to offer opinions. I welcome comments and critique's. Always looking to better my modelling and painting skills.
