Neat :) nice to see some of the lesser races in their rightful place: taking the bullet instead of the eldar. Your Farseer must be doing his job ;)

Really cool choice of different color schemes for each squad, Grizzly. I think the white and ocher ones are my favorite! Are you intending for the different schemes on your battlesuits as well? Or will they have a more unified scheme?

That is a very daunting amount of models to paint! You are a far braver man than me!

For the color, you can maybe spot I did some test with red and blue, but some friend said it did not really fit. Wich I do think so a bit aswell. Yet I can't say my current color scheme makes me happy so I will try a few things for a while until I do find what color I want to have. And then it's going to be building and painting time!!!

I think red and blue together in a scheme can work...but it's difficult. As they are both bold, primary colours, they will fight for attention (Part of the reason I hate my Eldar at the moment...too much red, which makes the models fight themselves). If you only have one of the colours acting as the focus, with the other as a spot colour, used in strict moderation, it can work...but balance is key.

Whatever you end up deciding, good luck!

I have been quiet for too long and I apologise! :-[

@Magenb and @Ynnedwraith : Actually... I have yet to fix the narrative for both my army so  I could very easily swap the roles around righ and left it is not set in stone AT ALL, but I do like oyu idea xD Plus I am kinda starting to think it could be fun to have a similly Farsight enclave with eldar at the lead or maybe a joint work between eldar and Tau into creating a Craftworld where both mixes?  I don't know I will see.

@Myental : Sadly I have the regret to annonce, I do not intend to keep different color for different strike teams, it's just a mix and match from all the things I bought right and left. And even more sadly I do not like the ocher one that much so they are likely to not stick. That said one of the Hammerhead will be done in this type of color, porbably more Emphasis on the black and ocher, to symbolise the fact that Longstrike is a commander from Tau.

@Looshkin : I am not brave it's just that once I start buying Warhammer or a lot of things I do not stop until I am temporarly satieted. So I end up with this kind of amphetamine parrotty situation xD. You are absolutly right about the blue and red, really tricky to find a good balance, wich in why in the following test I try took a tangente away from all that.

@Everyone : Thanks for the kind words :)




With that out of the way let me explain why the quietness. 1 - lack of time / Motivation (compounding effect between the two) 2 - Moving ! (Yes I actually changed appartment so I went from a fully equiped one to only the kitchen and bathroom equiped. Therefore no time or space to paint mini, BUT this is now over).

So yeah I'm back and I still don't know where to go with my Tau Army color  ???  Ok so here have a look at all the test I did on the last few days. And I'm not finished I just have pretty much ran out of idea for red version so the next few test will probably be in the blue range. Behold my creativity !  8)

Oh yeah and since I have a new place, and it's bigger than the older one, I invested in some WorkDesk for Painting Minis! Mouahahahahahahah! (Yes do picture me yelling at you, or the sky rather, like a bad villain from a old james bond movie or something)

I have so much to paint and I am still not even fixated on the color of my army... I'm beslubbered  :P


Hope you like the quick update.
PS : Cav you better like it because I hurried to get it out after your last post xD

PS2 : If someone could explaion to me, how I could geet pictures to show when I use imgur that would be awesome, If I can't use It, I guess, I will have to find something else.

-> Actually , had you known me IRL, you would have expected me to be properly shouting these kind of things but I get what you are saying. I shall be carefull about that. - Grizz -

I do believe the problem comes from imgur. Ican't get them to show up I'm gonna have to look at this in depth but changing hosting site is probably going to be the solution.

Thanks for the link anyway Iris^^

I liked the mix of red and dark blue in the firewarrior second from the right on the top row. tough to make out details in that photo though, might also be better with wash. I haven't tried such different colors next to each other, looks cool though.

Doomed target getting smashed by Tau firepower... scary :)

The dark red and white combo is nice, just not sure on the light blue bits.

Grizz! Glad to see you got a bigger place and work station. Thats great news! As for color scheme... I think I like the grey and white one. It reminds me of Scorpion82's Tau which I"m a huge fan of. You could easily follow his painting tutorial too and get a nice can of primer to make the work go that much faster.

If you do... I think its an "Army Painter Spray Primer" and white. If you go with that scheme use Celestra Grey for the heads and stuff. It'll make painting the white so much easier! Celestra Grey is such a clutch color. If you want it to be a bit brighter use Ulthuan Grey (which is the same color as the GW Corax White Primer).

Anyway great stuff. Can't wait to see which direction you go in. Keep it up Grizz!

Hey Grizzly! :)

Regarding Imgur - Myental here had a similar issue with Imgur images not showing up. In this post of mine I showed the way of linking images that works, and it seemed to have helped. Check it out ;)

That's a lovely working place you've got there! There's one big thing that is missing from it though: a compressor and an airbrush! I mean, if you approach this hobby of miniature painting seriously enough to organise a special working place for it, then an airbrush is the next thing you should invest into. Trust me ;)
I fight against Chaos and for Order, because it means fighting for Life against Death. There is no other battle truly worth fighting.

Yeah I kept reminding myself to mention that in this thread once Grizzly mentioned his imgur problems. But of course my memory keeps momentarily blanks out and I forget it again ;D. Yeah Grizzly, SeekingOne's method for imgur posts worked for me and I'm certain it'll work for you too. It really makes a difference once you can post actual images on the thread itself without having to divert readers to another site with a link.

Hey Grizz...looking forward to seeing what you do with the Tau. Personally, I like the Fire Warrior with the red clothing and white armour panels. The white might turn into a cow to paint, but as Cav said, if you work off a Celestra Grey base, it becomes quite easy.

As for the other test models...I think that the 4 on the left may well permanently damage your retinas if you paint a whole army of them! They are very vibrant...for me, too vibrant; however I think that they could work if toned down even just a little.

Keep the updates rolling Grizz!
