Tau'Va! Thanks guys, I knew of all places that the forward thinking Orbital would "get it".
Let me but up front about something though, these processes will be difficult to micro down. Crisis suits and maybe Gundrones will be the smallest models I would go about this way.
For FW's and other highly detailed but small surface area pieces, the GW way is never a bad idea.
Thanks again guys, I sadly need to move away from my beloved Tau minis for a month - I'm doing a guest demo at the Gunpla Builders World Cup in Sydney August 2017 and need to get a Gunpla model ready - in a hurry too!
If any of you will be there, please come up and say "hey, I'm from ATT!" Would be awesome to meet you. I'm on at 2pm and will stay on the Q and A. Would be funny if someone asked about Tau modelling - hint!!
