In keeping with my other armies I will run a WIP for my as yet unpainted T'au before posting the completed models in my

Kavaal Korst'la'sha'is thread.

 

As I work through the list I will try to remember to post any details such as magnetisation techniques, tips etc but expect this thread to progress in fits and stops as I am currently bouncing between DA/AM and T'au trying to clear a massive backlog due to my well known addiction to grey plastic acquisition...

 

 

So to start with here is the T'au painting backlog...

 

HQ
Commander Farsight x 2 (old style)
Commander Shadowsun

Troops
Firewarriors x 78
Kroot x 9
Kroothounds x 8

Elite
XV8 Battlesuits x 13

Fast
Piranha x 2
Pathfinder x 22
Drones x 71
Sun/Razor Shark x 3 (magnets will be involved at some point)

Heavy
XV88 Broadside x 4 (New style)

XV88 Broadside x 2 (Old style)
XV88-2 Broadside x 1
Hammerhead/Devilfish x 4
Skyray x 2

 

 

Along with these there is also the need to repaint all of the old scheme models - it may take a while msn-wink.gif

Currently gathering dust in the painting corner is a fully magnetised, part painted Tidewall Rampart. This will be the next T'au unit to be completed but it may take a while as I have a bit of a Guard tank fest going on at the moment to try to clear their backlog down a little :(

This will be my WIP location for the upcoming Xenos Community event

 

 

 

 

It is as we join with others, in a way that only the Tau can, in shared engagement to the Greater Good,

that we find ourselves able to fully realize our true potential.

And that is the final source of our hopes and intentions.
Aun'el T'au Tam'ya, Ethereal caste

 

 

I Elmo pledge the forces of the mighty T'au Empire to this endeavour.

 

The following units will be completed by the 3rd of Jan.

 

1 x Sunshark/Razorshark

1 x Devilfish/Skyray/Hammerhead

1 x Riptide

1 x Barracuda

 

Photos later

 

More may follow smile.png

 

In the end, all will work towards the aims of The Greater Good or shall be made to see the error of their choices...

Thanks guys :)

 

 

Here is the before photo for my vow

These will all be magnetised in one form or another.

 

The 'Cuda was the new FW model which was heavily deformed. I received a new hull from FW and was wondering what to do with the spare one as I did not want to bin it.

I managed to find a guy who had a similar problem and had printed out parts to build a version which looked like the original 'Cuda. I persuaded him to let me have some

Why not a terrain piece?  Think black hawk down except with a 'cuda.  Plenty of crashed thunderhawks for terrain, gotta figure something like a cuda would crash eventually

At the same time as all the T'au armour... salvaging a second hand Riptide ready for the new codex
 
Magnets may be harmed in the making of this model.
 
It has a Broadside sensor head as the original does not look beefy enough and have added a banner as I have some and what the hell... why not :)

There is frantic priming going on in the background on DF(1) /HH (3) / SR (2) - (I got a little carried away... I only vowed 1 on the Xeno Community Event

... sad.png) and the 'Cuda but I can show you the WIP so far on the Riptide smile.png

Lost a drone antenna somewhere...

 

It will take 1 evening to weather then I will start on the next Barracuda unless I get sidetracked with some new models I received last week...

Fantastic work! I'm going with a similar camo scheme but I'm doing snow. Just saw that post about icicles in one of the other threads and I'm super excited to work on on my of old crisis suits now. ^_^

Work continues on the next model - a Barracuda.
 
The upper is nearly done to a clean finish but still to do the belly in low-vis grey then the usual detailing and weathering...
 
About a week to go.

The 'Cuda not so much but for the larger battlesuits it is ideal.

 

The big advantage with magnets is the ability to swap all the weapon options around to avoid confusion during games.

It has been a real struggle over the time since my last post here to get anything actually finished which is why I am pleased that after almost 6 weeks I have finally completed a new Hammerhead (3 times longer than usual :( ) The delay was due to the busy Christmas/New year period and a severe case of man-flu which I have still not managed to fully shake off...

There are still another 6 in the primed queue and 4 more to repaint so I think I will be painting camouflage till summer ;)
