I, KhorneHunter57x, rise to the challenge of E TENEBRAE LUX on the side of the T'au Empire and vow to complete one TX7 Hammerhead Gunship, armed with one Railgun, two Smart Missile Systems, and two Seeker Missiles, of a total value of 178 points on or before August 1st, 2018. Success will bring me eternal glory and failure will doom me to wear the Badge of the Oathbreaker until the year-end.

- Aun'Cha (Ethereal AI Holo-Commander designed by Farsight) might be getting a golden bio robotics body if I can pull it off! He will know so many languages!
 
- R2D2 Drone might have to be in the front drone rack...
 
- Wrote FW and asked them to make us some Manta missiles/bombs so the Manta can fly as a "missile destroyer" as per Gothic.
 
- Repaired an old casting issue with the back infantry ramp... sanding molding and what not...
 
- Prepping 0131 (base 8 089 - my Manta Number) for the rear panel
 
- Prepping free hand ANARIS in Tau
 
- Prepping Hex kill counter for side of pilot area and gunners
 
- Any must have "aviation" dogma items... about 9 Tau books open right now verifying my placement and designs going forward.
--- FW items are very bare for Mantas...
 
- Do I add the FW's to the seats? ...  ... ... ... ... Grrr.......
 
- Mag work started on XV8 fast racks.... also thought of just keeping hte fast racks glued to the suits... Testing required.
 
- Rear Door mag and sanding
 
- in the air on internal lighting and design again... just push that over into this mental corner.
 
Also itching to kill somethings with this bird, need some APOC!

So, as I mentioned in an earlier thread: I'm fairly new to painting, and this current Tau army is the first army I've painted since I returned to the hobby earlier this year after not having played 40k since middle school. I'm very much still learning how to do things. Here's what I've been working on so far:

 

med_gallery_104051_14569_39421.jpg

 

Still WIP, but they're most of the way there. On the Fire Warriors, I might touch up the lenses and skin a bit. I just don't trust my skill with edge highlighting quite yet. The Ethereal needs a bit of cleaning and his face and braid finished.

 

I'm going on vacation starting tomorrow, but I hope to get three or four squads finished by the end of the month. Gotta keep grinding!

Nice work there Melete,

if your not confident with edge highlights then washes will be your best friend msn-wink.gif

and if the lenses are a hassle you could paint them white or silver and use those gem paints GW released a while back! 

the ethereal is looking very regal !

enjoy your Vacation, but get painting when you get back biggrin.png

Great work everyone thumbsup.gif

 

Vay.... jawdrop.gif

 

 

I am just plodding along here - wallbash.gif

Work progresses on the 3 XV9s and XV88-2 with the torsos being almost complete less a little detailing.

The decals/weathering will come later once the models are fully assembled.

The XV88-2 arms where a little fiddly and took a few tries to get how I wanted... hopefully 1f609.png

I am on a long weekend now so work will progress next week with legs/arms and weapons. Should be on the bases the week after.

Other than some brightening of the torso highlights and finishing the lenses, the main body of the test model is done. I'm still going to be doing greeblies like pouches and ammo strips, but for me those are finishing touches. I've laid the first coat of a bluish tinge onto the rest of the squads cloth segments to start building up the highlights, and I'm happy with how bright the lenses are coming along.

I think I'm going to call these guys the Elemental Guard. I haven't really come up with fluff for them yet, but it's likely going to spill into kill team territory.

Fellow Shas of the T'au. As the Gue'vesa S'emp'er has written, it is important to keep our momentum going and to gain new recruits for the Greater Good.

To this end, the Ethereals call on anyone with any forces, no matter how small, to pledge themselves to this great cause and to help bring peace and stability to the galaxy and show all races the benefits of the Greater Good.

Beautiful combination of light blue and yellow! And the shading/highlighting is exceptional! Was there any pre-shading involved? Also, bravo for the dynamic posing!

Keep it up man, for the greater good!

Made some progress with armor drybrushing and solid colors. The base layers for the feet and toenails are laid down, and will be built up over another layer or so. Armor highlights came out nicely, and I feel like the gray added some much-needed depth. Once the feet are done, I'll go over the lenses with a solid mithral, then finish up the colors for the lenses over that. The green lenses are going to be primarily what ties these guys in with the rest of my army.

Thanks Cap!  No preshading, just multiple layers!  First black undercoat, then purple, then progressively lighter blue until a final 1:1 mix of blue and white.  Augustus gave me some tips and its been helping immensely.

Excellent detailed work on the toes man - that blue is really something... And the highlights really work well... Do you have plans to make the pants a bit contrasting or will everything go for black? I certainly look forward for the green and metal details... :tu:
