Missiles For Everyone

The Tau Broadside was the first 40K model I built. I picked one up while buying paints for an Imperial Assault model, deciding that I wanted to do something a bit different. More than one year later, I've decided to pick up another Broadside and build it in a 'missiles for everyone' configuration. This model…

Dark Vengeance: Chosen

I've finally got my Chosen squad from my DV box into a state where I'm happy with it. I've painted them more or less as shown in the YouTube videos. I pinned them to some muddy style resin bases.   They're a bit grimy in some spots and need tidying up a little in others,…

Kroot Squad

I recently attempted to take part in Squaduary, and decided to tackle a squad of Kroot Carnivores, the jungle-dwelling allies of the Tau. Unfortunately travel commitments, as well as being generally busy, meant that I decided to focus on a few of the minis, rather than half-finishing the whole squad. I went for a fairly…

Revisiting Stormtroopers

Since I'm now playing Imperial Assault with a regular group, I thought I'd go back and repaint the stormtrooper models. These were some of the first miniatures that I painted, and so they ended up with a rather blobby paint job. I put up with it for a while, but since they're probably the most…

Imperial Firepower

I've been running an imperial assault game for the last couple of weeks, and we've just got on to the proper story missions. I've been painting as fast as I can to keep up, and today I finished General Weiss's modified AT-ST.  I more or less followed Sorastro's video, except for a few minor colour replacements…

Dreadtober: Finishing Touches

I've now got my Crisis Suits built, with base colours applied, and with some bases built for them using cork. On to the finishing touches! As with most Tau models, the Crisis Suits have a lot of panel lines and hard edges, which means that I'll be using a lot of edge highlighting and washes…

Dreadtober: Painting the Suits

[I wrote most of this post last week, but forgot to actually publish it! I'm putting it up now, and will make another post about my detailing and finishing touches later this week.] For Dreadtober, I'm building and painting a set of Tau Crisis Suits. Now that I've built the suits, it's time to paint…

Dreadtober: The Base

I'm running slightly behind due to not getting much done last week, so I'm using this week as an opportunity to catch up a bit. However, I still need to get those bases painted! I've already built the bases for the three Crisis Suits in my team, using some cork, tarmac spread, and various bits…

Meanwhile… Tau Ethereal

Since I'm a bit ahead on my Crisis Suits for Dreadtober, I decided to also assemble and paint the Ethereal from my Start Collecting Tau box. In particular, I decided to base the model a bit differently to the rest of my Tau so far, using some plaster bricks to produce some broken paving. The…
