I wanted to make a post to track the progress of my first attempt at painting a complete army.
Normally im a super slow painter, letting life get in the way and stopping and starting painting models over the course of years and finishing very little.
Recently i was in games workshop Amsterdam and i got talking to a guy who was happy to help and give me some airbrushing tips, turns out this was Augustus from here, and he kindly invited me over the next week for a hobby day with some of his friends and him to show me some airbrushing and painting tips! Thanks again bud!
Armed with this new knowledge and new found great bunch of lads to play 40k and paint with, i set myself the goal of painting a tau army in as short a period of time as possible!
Here is the tester model for the colour scheme i have chosen, i first tried with white but wasnt happy so i switched to a sky blue. Im happy with the results so far, any comments or criticisms welcome!
I set the goal of finishing the first unit of fire warriors to see if im happy with the theme, i am thinking of one of the following base ideas:
A beach theme base, water effect and sand.
Lava themed bases for the complementary orange to the sky blue
I will aim to post progress regularly, and also i have a better photo setup on the way to help with better photos!
