Just a little show and tell, brothers and sisters - I met a great guy on Saturday (while touring the tables alongside Excessus) with an awesome looking KX139 Ta'unar Supremacy Armour suit. If you're on here, brother, speak up! I forgot your name! The pictures, as usual, don't do the model justice.

 

Anyway, I thought I'd snap a few pictures to give the new Tau section on B&C something to admire. Enjoy! ^_^

I know, brother - I just wish I could remember the gentleman's name. With luck we may see him yet.

I wanna say I saw an entire army on the internet like that...type in maybe Tau XV9 or something. I was looking at some models and saw the army that matches it!

Nice, I hope to have my own Tron Tau army one day. Love the color scheme.

Hi there, thanks for posting up the pics. I'm made up to see one of my models on here. It was great chatting to you guys at warhammer world. If it's okay I'd like to post more of my army as I get them painted up?

 

Below's my first attempt to see if I liked the style. It turns out I did and I went straight out and bought the Ta'unar and started it. Next time I'm going to start with the Manta and be done with it. :)

Is the base home made?

Hello, brother! Glad to have you with us! It was good talk all round, I'd say - the model was a stand out over the weekend and I'm glad to have pictures of it. If you'd like to use this thread to post up more pictures, then by all means don't let us stop you. There is also the option to begin your own thread if you so wish - it's up to you. :tu:

Yes it's homemade. I sanded down the base that comes with the model and then sprayed it black to try and get it looking smooth. I then pencilled out the design and painted over it. The thinking behind the design was the circles emanate out with each step it takes, which then link up with each other. I've a whole fluff in my head about the army being controlled by a rogue T'au AI that assimilates everything it comes into contact with and leaves it looking tron. Sort of like a grey goo yin to the tyranids yang. Almost like a T'au, tron, borg mashup.

Although I have never been a proponent of Tron-T'au you have pulled it off well and the black/ice blue combines well together.

 

A suggestion would be for you to try edge highlighting or dry brushing the black with shadow grey.

An example of this method is below on the bike mud guards

I was thinking of doing the edging but was worried that it might make the model look too busy. There's a simplicity to the current paint scheme that I quite like, but I think I'll try your suggestion on a crisis suit and see how it looks.

Got my commander finished. I decided to mix it up and go with gold for my command troops. I might try and split up the army this way e.g. green for fast attack, etc...

You see, this is the kind of scheme i think Dan Harden had in mind when he started his tron like Tau (no offence and sincere apologies to Dan, whom i think is a great addition to GW) but yours is executed much nicer wub.gif  as elmo suggests some fine edge highlighting would make it POP ,perhaps start small on special characters and see how you go...

And thanks to Olis for having such a keen sharp eye for the beauty of 40k thumbsup.gif .

 

Cheers, Mithril

I love the Tron theme outta unique and very pleasing to the eyes. I'm surprised i hasn't seen it sooner.

However nice the Tron theme is that last battlesuit you posted up is beautiful. Absolutely magnificent.

Keep up the great work Doc.
