Next up a pre-primed XV8 (old style) and then there is a backlog of primed vehicles (2 x Skyrays, 1 x Hammerhead and 1 x Devilfish) to do before November.

And as I had an hour spare and it was not worth starting anything new I got some bases ready for more drones ;)

Been a while since I posted anything T'au but that will soon change... I am currently in the middle of some ravenwing but once they are done I will be starting 2019 with a bit of a bang...

My kids bought me another Ta'unar between them and this one has both the pulse driver and missile system.

I am expecting to start assembly in Feb but will be doing some prep work this week

:)

Except for the flock. What materials did you use for the drone bases and where can you buy them?

Sorry - I have been lax lately and did not see your post...

 

Here is a link to my How to

the system is the same for all bases less the large ones which get the bark stuck on too...

The Ta'unar has been primed in black and the base colour (Army Painter Angel Green) has been sprayed on after masking off the bits which are remaining black.

 

All ready for the ETL to start now :)

The Ta'unar is now looking something like a Suit rather than a collection of bits

 

 

gallery_62353_11005_42045.jpg

 

 

The hips and legs have been reinforced with 2mm brass rod.

Just the weapons to do and it will be complete

As the Ta'unar has now been finished and the display cupboard needed a dust and just out of curiosity on how many points I actually had painted up (still more to do :( ) here are a few photos of the collection so far.
