During the new wave of Tau releases I fell in love with the Warriors of the Greater Good. Before I just envied them for their power on the tabletop. But you know the saying, if you can't beat them, join them...

And so I did! 2016 will be the year of Tau for me. My goal is to get 1000 points ready for the end of the year. I'm taking a sabbatical year from my ever expanding Imperial Guard (Tanith First) army. I wanted to paint en build something completely different.

At the moment I have 10 Fire warriors, 3 Crisis Suits, 1 Fireblade, 10 Pathfinders and 1 Piranha. I'm really liking the new GW colourscheme so I just borrowed that one.

Here's a picture of 4 pathfinders. I'll post new updates soon.

Hope your like them!

I love that weathered look that the white tau painters are all doing these days. Just love it. My army is a bit colourful to pull it off, I think :(

Thank you for your enthusiastic reply, Extendar.

I already have crisis suits, but I have not made pictures of them. When they're finished I'll post them in this project log.

Here's a first picture of my Crisis Suits. I equipped two with a fusion blaster and a plasma rifle, the third with a plasma rifle and a flamer, to make them an all-round squad. Probably separate the flamer and create a new squad with more similar weapons when I buy another set of Crisis Suits, but now they'll be doing just fine.
I tried to make them a dynamic unit, landing or almost landed.

It was my first time ever painting Crisis Suits and I'm glad with the result.

I had some time to paint a Fire Warrior. i just really like the new kit, there is so much detail in this set. It's still WIP. I haven't decided how to paint the grenade holder.

I'm really happy with how he turned out.

Really envioius of your detail level on your warriors :)
Want to get to that level of detail you obtain on smaller figures. Going to take my time when I do the new warriors.

Thank you for your kind words Themoogle! :)

Here is picture of first three finished Fire Warriors.

I am not sure if I keep the helmet completely white, I'm thinking to paint maybe one half in the same grey colour as the Fire Caste symbol on his shoulder pad. What do you think? I'm curious to your opinion in this matter!
