Finished - Tau Crisis Suit

Done! This weirdo has 4 magnets in him and is ready for the table.

... you know, after I mount him properly on a base.

Retail value for this guy is $25 and the paintjob is about that as well. There are also some pretty significant conversions and magnets in this mini that I value at $20 for a total of $70. When I finish more Crisis Suits I'll post them in the TMM CV. For now I am going to skip posting with that tag for this mini.

On the table now - Tau Crisis suit and Drone

Just a quick post for now. I am working my way through rehabing my Tau army and the white and black color scheme is proving very challenging to get right. For the most part, I am happy with how they are turning out, but it is requiring some adaptation to my painting style to get the desired results.

A Couple of Problems with The GW Site

Oh. Your. God. 
GW: 27.7.13

Me: Is that a date or something, because there is no 27th month.

GW: 27.7.13

Me: Oh you are an British company and that is how you do dates over there. That's cool, but it is pretty lazy for you not to format your dates properly for the US site. It is kind of like the way you spell "colour."

GW: 27.7.13!

Finished - Long Fangs

In the interest of posting more, here are some crappy pics of my Long Fangs!

While the title and tags say that they are finished, they are not. I still need to apply transfers and clear coat them. After that they will need some static grass (if I decide to go that route with the SW) and only then are they really finished. 

The pictures also turned out crappy. That is likely due to the lighting and the white background. I did not notice how bad they were until I got to posting them. By that point, I just wanted to finish this post and did not want to get out the studio

The old and the new

I am redoing the Tau. They were my first army. I shelved them at the start of 5th Ed and have not really touched them since then. I took them out for a spin with the new Codex and they are brutal! 

You know me; I can't field something that is not painted. The old Tau are painted but super ugly. I played with them once and it made me feel icky to have such a gross looking army on the table. It was the first time that I did not have someone say something nice about how my army looked. Not to sound arrogant, but that was weird for me. 

I am keeping the same colors but taking it up to a new level. I am using my blue to white trick for the whites and kind of phoning in the black jump suits. I am just washing the under suit black and calling it good. It is not worth it to go all out on black cloth.

Long time no post

No posts in over a month? Not cool! I am going to try to get a legit post up at least once per week in addition to pics of what I am working on. I have been painting up a storm and just nee dot take pics and a few min to post.
