Thanks everybody! Responses at bottom.
Quick update with various things. Got a Kroot test model done. Have had this poor thing for years now. One of the first models I painted. Decided to give him new life.
Happy with how it came out individually. Although I'm still awful at photographing miniatures. It's ironic since my main profession revolves around cameras and media.
Zooming out would probably help my cause. But eh.
The face paint is in the shape of a Kroot hand.
Torn on using true metallic metals in this force. Maybe sticking it to Kroot only.
I have done some work on other models. Here are my two devil fish so far. Just rough works in progress.
Air brush is broken so these will have to wait awhile.
Super busy for the next while but I will try to keep updated.
On another front, I'm attempting to start wargaming based Youtube Channel:
Worked on the intro video here:https://youtu.be/Enr5lnUcBoo
Just a fun little thing.
Had my friend over for the campaign. Just some fun games to get used to 8TH edition. He played Imperial guard.
Lists were something like:
Commander 3x CIB ATS
3x Suits Flamer/2x Fusion, 2x CIB/ATS
Breacher with Dark Strider in a DevilFish
Strike team with Missile turret
Pathfinders with 3x Ion Rifle
3x vets in chimeras
Special Weapons squad in Chimera
2x Infantry squads
Raven wing squads (?)
Chaplain on bike
I swept him both times playing our first Maelstrom Games.
I ilke 8th edition as a rules set, but Tau honestly seem to be pretty gimped. Bs3 Sucks on our suits. And the markerlight table was frustrating to work with in any capacity. My saving grace was the Ghostkeel and commander unsurprisingly. Everything else was negligible with Longstrike doing laughable damage. My Pirhana was star of the game with it and it's drones tying up at least one manticore every turn and dodging a few attack bikes.
GhostKeel was a ton of fun to play and I look forward to buying/painting one. It's flame throwers and stealth made it super tanky. And it chased down a few squads of regulars buying time for the commander/Suit team to sweep away a strong flank.
Overall the new edition is cool. Definitely going to play with some older rules and models. But I like how fast/killy it is.
@Ricordis: Eh, it looks cool
@Orpheus Hangar: !!!!! I've gotten that a few times now. It looks so right with the handle ontop though! Hmm
Finishing up a crisis suit next, look forward to posting here more.
