So I was talking to some guys at my local club about starting Tau and one said he had some stuff to offload. I didn't want to buy anything before the new codex came, but in the words of Don Corleone, he offered me some stuff and j had to say yes.
So here it is:
Enough for a couple of squads and some Proxy units.
They're going to be stripped- someone has sprayed gloss(!) black over the old red paint job as primer... So they'll be stripped back and I'll start again.
This guy is included in the group of firewarriors. Who is he? I see he has a pulse carbine.
Getting this lot included in the price was a steal.
Shame they're modelled with a mismatch of weapons, but for the price I couldn't say no. And my club are all good with things not being wysiwyg!
The two suits at the front are heavier than the other three- did they used to be metal?? Again they're going to be paint stripped so I can start again.
Next lot are these guys.
Again the commander has different weapons to what I'd use but hey ho.
I'm looking forward to painting Shadowsun. Thinking I'll have her in traditional white. But I expect I'll use her as an ethereal or a stealth suit until I get other models.
I'll put missile pods on my future broadsides- unless the codex changes that!
I'm thinking that I'll struggle painting him, as I'm not a great painter and I'll paint my next ones as I build them.
This lot need a bit of tlc. They've been through the wars! It looks like whoever built them did so by dipping them in glue!
Hopefully after some paint they'll come up well enough. Does anyone have any tips for these?
There's another five of these that were primed in black which I've now painted up!
So in all not bad for £60! I can make 1000pts with some proxying so that's a great buy.
I intend to add posts as I paint and add to the cadre.
Looking forward to this. My other army is IG with a heck of a lot of green paint!!
