Great job with that suit, one of my favourites to date, Issendror.


Thanks modelglue - I'm really happy in general, how well my works are received by the ATT Community.
This Forum keeps me working on and motivated. :smile:

With these words my latest addition to my Taros Hunter Cadre:

That devilfish is beautiful, much like everything else on this thread.

Really clean, perfect depth of detail and superb camo patterning. How did you achieve the effect?

That's one really good looking Devilfish you got there. Loving the detail and crisp paintwork.

Thanks to all of you.
I'm happy about all your appreciative comments, which always give much pleasure and help to keep me motivated. :D
Hope to do more soon.

@eetdestroyer - It's all about contrast, layers of water-thinned paint and appropriate edge highlighting.
Primed, "XV-88" basecoated and washed with "Agrax Earthshade", the camo is composed of "Tau Light Ochre", "Ungor Flesh" and "Skrag Brown".
To soften the contrast of the later two, they are mixed with "Tau Light Ochre" in a ratio 4-5:1.
The painting progress remains with a calm hand (I don't use an airbrush), lots of patience (yeah .... LOTS), and the appropriate brushes for the job.

You did all that work by hand? No airbrush?! Holy smokes! I thought you were using an airbrush for sure! Please don't get me wrong, even with an airbrush your work would be considered great... By hand? Wow!

I have say, I'm constantly amazed by the painting skills on this site, by this community. You're definitely one of the top in my books.

Well done sir!

Lovely work to come back too - thats one cammo scheme I steered clear from; preferred the jagged bar disruption pattern.

Must admit I chuckled at the Airbrush comment - there was a time in the mystical past when cavemen used hairy tipped wood sticks to apply paint. ;) Couldnt resist a tease.

My usual was masking tape and application - patience for sure.

Look forward to more.

Taros Milestone Progess:


Today I spent some time mapping out the progress on Taros II so far. Milestone V is nearly finished.
Milestone VI is imminent. But I'm at a little hold up due to decisions ahead. Time will tell.

I really love the idea of a project log, like what you have there. It's efficient and helps you stay motivated and organized. I think I'll definitely put one together for my hobby work!

Hi There.
I've come to a conclusion refering my scenery inspirations/delusions:
Concerning the Hydra-Flak-Emplacement, I've decided to favor a scratchbuilt variant.
Likewise missile silo and command bunker - my poor little sketchbook.
Fortunately, I could secure a pair of the original Forge World Gun-Emplacements
from ebay, so no future creative sprains there.
After over half a year gathering dust on the paint station I finally finished the second
Shas'ui and the Shas'vre of my XV-88 Broadside Team. Drones are next.

It's really helping a lot - especially to pool all your inspirations and ideas. :-?
I'll bring it up again in time when I'm approaching the next milestones. Please excuse the ('nearly') dense blackenings. :P

@Exzendar
Thanks Exzendar. Likewise, I´m really jealous about your cadre. :nice:

What material are you using for your terrain? I figure it's foam but more details would be interesting. It looks great and very Taros like.

You can find the whole extent of used materials in the first post:
Issendror wrote:Cork sheets (3-5mm / 0.12-0.2 in)
medium-density woodfiberboard (6mm / 0.024 in) - There are thinner, lighter ones but tend to bend
polystyrene wall panels (3-5mm / 0.12-0.2 in) - It´s insulation material you can find in nearly every
DIY store. In Europe and Germany you can get Depron-Sheets in various strengths or BASF-Styrodur-Panels.
polystyrene glue - For the larger surfaces (see "glue" above).
white glue/wood glue - (see "glue" above)
Sandpaper - (Grit size 150 and above / for Germans: 120) - Used to smoothen the edges of both,
mdf-boards and polystyrene panels.
Medium sand - (grain size 0,25-0,5mm / 0.010-0.020 in) I used fire-dried, quartz sand. Mostly
traceable in pet shops because it's appropriate for use in aquariums. Don't use sandbox appropriate sand - it's to
heterogeneous, dusty and polluted.
Box-Cutter - Cut, Chop, Cut ... for the bloo... the greater good.
high-strength fabric-tape - For edge-protection. (For Germans: Panzerband und Tesa-Produkte sehr
zu empfehlen)
Palette - To mix colours, white glue and water.
Brushes - 14mm / 0.55 in - Used to apply the colour-white-glue-mix onto the allready sanded boards.
and to paint the scenery pieces. 70mm / 2.76 in - Used to apply thinned white-glue and to drybrush all terrain and scenery
pieces.
Colour - Provided by my local DIY store - custom mix.

I'll adjust it gradually according to the project flow.
Sorry for the long answer pause

Sorry, my bad. I went to the top of the page and figured it was the beginning of the topic. Never thought to look for a first page and I've been following this topic for a while. I'll blame it on early morning.
Thanks for the answer and the topic. Keep up the good work.

Hi everyone,
I thought the Drones would become a quick paintjob. Well, 2 weeks of too much work later, they are done.
Milestone V accomplished, banzai.

Next up terrain, and it`s allready well-advanced. I'm working on details of the missile-silo,
the sculpting and casting of the flak-emplacement, and perimeter defences.
Even the command bunker got a first blueprint. Enjoy and let me know your thoughts. :)

Do you drybrush black or edge highlight?

That depends on the purpose, but I suppose your asking about the highlighting on the drones?
If it`s a miniature, i`m edge highligthing. Most terrain pieces, on the contrary, just receive a multiple drybrush treatment,
if they haven't some sort of important detail sections.
