Drones are done. I've only got the Commander (who has already seen a little paint), Broadsides' Seeker Missiles and basing to go.

Oh certainly. I'll either have the next vow up later tonight or sometime over the next few days; I already have models set aside.

Yeah, I'm still kinda shocked I got it done within two weeks after working on one vow per month last year. I could probably have been done a day or two sooner at a push too.

Just wondering: Shadowsun is going to be part of my next vow, so should I paint her in inverted colours (green) or stay consistent with everything else?

Well normally Shadowsun with inverted colours would be white due her being from the T'au sept which has white markings. But if you have your own sept and only use it as counts-as T'au sept then yeah it would be green (assuming green is your sept colour).

Regardless, I'd go for it. Having received the honour to wear inverted colours is part of her background and sets her apart as named character from the rest of your models. Unless of course you instead want to apply some stealth effect like many people do. ^^

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

So here's my second Vow:

 

gallery_82168_15314_181934.jpg

gallery_82168_15314_34783.jpg

 

That is:

 

5 Crisis Suits w/3xFusion Blasters, 7 Shield Drones and 3 Gun Drones - 505 points

5 Stealth Suits inc. Shas'vre w/Markerlight and Target Lock - 149 points

6 Stealth Suits w/2xFusion Blasters and Shas'vre w/Markerlight and Target Lock - 197 points

Ghostkeel Battlesuit w/Cyclic Ion Raker, 2xBurst Cannons, Advanced Targeting System, Target Lock and 2 Stealth Drones - 168 points

Commander Shadowsun w/2xMV52 Shield Drones and 1xCommand-Link Drone - 138 points

 

This vow would normally come to 1,157 points, but as the Stealth Suit on the extreme left is already layered up to Russ Grey (and thus ineligible for the ETL) it should instead be 1,129 points.

Slugging away at my first vow. I split it in part so I won't go crazy. The pathfinders are first!

Solid progress for the fishheads, well done! thumbsup.gif

 

The new Apocalypse bundles, apart from making my bank account shiver in fear, made me think about Tau again. I know their rules are not that great these days, but I just like the battlesuits, and...

A nice addition to the big box from two years ago. ETL VIII can't come soon enough. laugh.png

This box pretty much screams for building Farsights The Eight. Just get yourself another Broadside and Farsight himself and you're good to go. :D

@ Elmo: That's great work there brother! Very clean, very consistent, very nice! :tu:

 

@ Dawnstar: a great second vow - that's a brave stance there mate! Good luck!

 

@ Levianthus: Well, these are some fantastic Tau. Excellent work with the whites and love the dots of darker blue on the head - great idea!

 

UPDATED TO THIS POINT!

Hey Captain, is that extra Stealth Suit valid or not? You appear to have put up the value including it rather than the one without.

It's not different from having it primed grey so it really shouldn't be an issue (especially not compared to the state of my Repulsor I vowed for the Blood Angels :P ).

I think I'd rather like to hear Semper's opinion on that as I'd certainly disagree. I'll happily go ahead and raise my entire army to Russ Grey if you turn out to be right though.

Forgot to post my update this week so here is my first "test" model for my firewarriors
5TubGdw.jpg
1wGB2vq.jpg

This guy was painted exclusively with contrast paints (apothecary white armor, SW grey fatigues, black templar gun, and tallisar blue skin) over a plain white primer (I use krylon cause it's nice and smooth) and then drybrushes over with celestra grey, although I think I'll forgo that step on future minis.

All of them are pretty much up to this point and I gotta day this is making my vow go SOOO much smoother than last year
