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!
