It's a while ago that I updated this log, but that doesn't mean I haven't painted some Tau models.

Here is a picture of a almost complete Stealth Suit. I wanted to make him a little stealthy by painting a digital urban camo on his helmet and gun. I'm quite pleased how it turned out, but still see some spots that can be made better.

And here is my first breacher. I just love the amount of details on this models. I'm very curious how they will preform on the battlefield. Have to find them some transports though.

And here is a picture of the whole army:

Oh the digital camo is very nice indeed! I may have to take that as inspiration for mine, as I've been struggling for ideas.

Looks Great! It's great to see some love for stealth suits, and I especially love the cinematic photographs from the original post!

Looking really good! I'm also amazed (and jealous :P) at how well you've put the light color on the model.

Wow! That white is crisp. Did you use stencils on the camouflage or was it freehand?

Thanks! my next updates will be more cinematic. :)

Thanks! The light colour wasn't that hard to be honest. I primed the models white first, so the light colors attached easily.

Thanks for the honor! I'm looking forward to see your result.

Thanks! The camouflage is freehand. I've used my smallest brush for it. It was tough, but I'm happy with the result.

At the moment I'm painting my Tau Commander. At this moment I have to decide how I'll glue the model. I'm struggling to make a final decision about the placement of his second plasma rifle. I've three options and I'm looking for your opinions in this matter.

Option 1: Two guns on one arm:

Option 2: Second gun on his jet pack

Image

Option 3: Second gun on his other arm:

I prefer option 1, but so far all my game-buddies chose differently. What do you think?
