Heyo peoples it's update time again
Thanks you guy's for the support, the more it goes the more I feel confident with the paint schemes of the Taus!
Ok, so first of all, as much as I'm focused on mostly Tau at the moment, because I want to have a 1500 pts army battle ready painted if possible for when I play my friend soon-ish, don't you dare worry about me not doing anything for my beloved first army, the eldars
As such, let me present you one of the main things I did last week...
BEHOLD THE WRAITHKNIGHT ( Disclaimer: I'm showcasing the current state of things, do not worry in the slightest that I would leave it in the current state, it's like most things on this blog, a work in progress
) Also please excuse the mess in the bedroom xD.
So yeah don't worry I did not forget them
Of course, this is still very early level for the paint job. I basically just slapped some paints onto this model I finished gluing back up together. As you guy's might remember, my main color for the body of my eldar is TROLL SLAYER ORANGE
... The devil paint when it comes to covering anything. So the orange of the legs and soon the arms is basically me slapping a millions of very very veryyyyyyyyy very thin coats of it with a flat base brush from gw (it's old I don't know if they still make that one).
Awesome hammerhead, looks really smooth.
That's how I did for the Hammerhead as well, but with prince august 990 grey which is a much better paint:D.
Speaking of the hammer head, one extra thing I did as well in the last 2 weeks since I posted is Some Tau painting
(Of course I did).
As I said, I'm really digging that paint schemes and with some experimentation I'm going to use darkenhof nightshade on the guns, because the full on dark blue gun are better than the grey I used before.
The only question I have in mind would be the blue highlight band on the top of the guns. I'm not sure if I'm going to leave it. I feel the rifles stand out too much like this, and it's cool and all, but it just absorbs the other point of interest from the model and in the end make them a bit duller to look at. To much electric blue just make the blob of fire warriors that much harder to distinguish between each other.
Okay enough of that, here you go. This last 2 weeks was basically finishing the one FireWarrior Squad I had started a long time ago, and getting some undercoat on the next part of the Tau Project
In agreement with my 1500points list I was talking about, my next painting steps are going to be one unit of breachers, one unit of kroot, plus the lone crisis left as well as all these stealth suits. Stay tuned for that.
Brick & brock final part xD
Small random anecdote, I've been an idiot all this time. I've had a bunch of fire warriors with pulse carbines, AND I FOOLISHLY THOUGH these guy's were pathfinders. Shock and horror the other day when I understood my mistake --' ebay listing betraying and trolling me! As a punishment for mocking me, or rather because they desperately need it, I have prepared a bath for these foolish fire warriors.
Well I mean technically the bath is not there yet, but the bath tub is ready for sure xD. Enjoy some soon to glanzerised old fire warriors, as well as some DIYS of fixing gw terrible ruler design. Also here is the preview of the next step on the building list. i have to build enough for a 2000 points army soon, otherwise, I'm gonna be short on power to fight against the BA/IK soup my friend will no doubt put in front of me later this year.
I hope you all enjoyed the update. It's be a lot of fun to just paint things recently.
I've been idling a bit unemployed for a bit, with rejection on rejection when applying for work, and, I have derived a small sens of accomplishment in getting some of these guy's painted. It helped me cope, with the feeling of not doing anything for a while.
Thanks for the read I hope to see you again later once we come back with proper finishing touch on some of these models and we start to experiment with the balance of color on the breachers. I have a few ideas in mind that should work just fine
SEE YA o/
