starting my tau, figuring out the paint scheme right now - it's based off of the Militia from Titanfall.

 

Goal I've started:

Firewarriors and breachers and all units will be mixed species, with armor sculpted on kroot and humans either in scion armor or sculpted on IG.

 

background idea behind them:

 

This remnant Tau force was once part of the 4th sphere expansion, when they were swallowed by the great rift they were sent to an unkown sector of space to the tau. the Ghoul star system, where space itself is distorting.

 

Given the numerous loses the Tau took in the warp and subsequent battles when re-emerging from warp space, the casualties have caused the survivors to rethink parts of the greater good. amending or adding to them. Now any able bodied warrior for the greater good can be trained as firewarrirors, to fill in the absent ranks. A 10 man breacher team is now composed of 5 tau, 3 kroot and 2 humans, all trained together and perform up to par.

 

this thinking goes to all branches of the military now, and the earth caste has been busy modifying interiors/chasis of the suits to accommodate other species, Kroot are now the go to pilots for the Ghost keel suits and xv25 stealth battlesuits.

Awesome stealth effect. Doesn't look particularly stealthy but it's very interesting to look at. ;)

ya, was testing out an idea I had for perspective stealth, In the future I think I might make the triangles (i know i need to make these better in the future, probably with epoxy) into color gradient prisms. 

 

I like the green and tan/orange the most right now about it

I like the effect mate especially with the yellow pillar. It has a very predator uncloaking feel to it.

not bad, what kind of scheme's did you have in mind militia wise?...as in whats your base suit colour and secondary colours etc greens (castellan,deathworld forest etc) are great for that Titanfall feel with yellow,orange and white all making good secondary colours... A Tau force done up like the mech's and pilots would be very awesome to see...wub.gif

Look forwards to seeing what comes of this!!

 

cheers and good luck, Mithril

 

also, these heads from Anvil might look cool on some Tau (they have that Stim pilot look cool.png )

I really wish the airburst was worth taking. A Commander with 4 AFP sounds pretty awesome. Just needs more shots at better range.

Oh wow I like this army. I kinda made a few Titanfall styled bits in my Tau army but there still is a lot of Gundam in it XD Can wait to see where this goes.

 

Also if you dont make a Legion Riptide with the burst cannon I shall be dissapointed!

Tone: COmmander

ION: COmmander

Ronin: COmmander

monarch: coldstar

Northstar: broadside/coldstar

Scorch: ghostkeel/commander fire

legion: riptide

What will the northstar colours be like? You should try to copy one of the games schemes that has your cour palette in it?, (gee I miss that mech, sniping scorches through choke points) although jump packs in titanfall2 are not quite the same as tau ones , you get shot at more instead of less!,
Look fwd to seeing your work soon,
Cheers, Mithril

I plan on it.

 

started converting a Kroot into an ethereal, (logic behind this is the Ethereals were ambushed and dieing, so the last ethereal ordered kroot to eat there remains, so that they may take there place until they reunite with real ethereals again.

 

 

also got the body for Scorch (flame ghsotkeel) and northstar (boradside) put together, will post pics later this week
