Good afternoon ATT!
I've been meaning to start a log for a while. I sold off a bunch of Eldar and Guard back in November/December, and got back in the fold with a big, brand new Tau army. It's been slow going, but I finally have the entire army assembled and coated with primer after a 12 hour marathon yesterday.
My goal with this log is to keep myself on task with my goal. I want to have my army painted before welcoming my 2nd child in to the world (bye bye free time!) this summer. I am a masochist, I know. I want to keep this post updated quite frequently with my progress.
I am ready to start putting some paint down this evening. I will be going with a Vior'la scheme (I know, very creative!), since it was the scheme that drew me back in to the game, and towards the Tau in the first place. Here are some pictures of my grey army!

And here's a random partial army picture
Wait, did he say they were primed and ready for paint?
What a post. Stay tuned for some WIP as I get my hands dirty. I'll make sure not to take any more pictures on my kitchen counter. That pattern and glare sure do suck for photos.
