Really sick and tired of painting Drones but I should be done with those today. That'll leave me with just the Ghostkeel left to go.

As is my nature, I ended up deciding to pick up the last of the Apocalypse boxes from my discount retailer of choice ... so it looks like I'm going Triptide on my next vow.

 

I'm actually looking forward to being a bit more adventurous with these suits and trying to give them some more dynamic posing than a lot of the more rigid and/or uniform ones I already have.

Wow! Talking about impressive! eek.gif

 

This is an imposing piece there brother! Lovely paint job - great work on the camo! And with this completion you propelled the Tau to the first position within the Xenos Faction and, funnily enough, the Tau actually lead the entire ETL! :o

 

For the Greater Good! 

 

UPDATED TO THIS POINT!

I'm certainly hoping to have my Ghostkeel (and therefore second vow) done done by Tuesday if not sooner.

I'll be back to working on my Gouf-inspired Broadside and drones soon. The drones are mostly done, they just need the lenses and the guns/shield generator painted, and then I'll be moving on to the Broadside now that I know the scheme works.

So here we are. I can finally declare Vow #2 Complete.

(The Stealth Suits' lenses are kinda horrible but that's because they'd been repainted enough times to obliterate all the detail in most cases. Making the 'best' of a bad situation.)

 

---

 

I have my Apocalypse box now, so I'll be building my third Riptide, a Coldstar and Drones and then revowing.

Very impressive indeed! With Dawnstar's completion you're now leading the Xenos Faction and you're second overall after the SM forum (but I have yet to update the AoD Forums - am scared to go there truth being told). 

 

Keep it up guys, you're doing great! 

 

UPDATED TO THIS POINT!

Eh, I'm only painting to a tabletop standard and not doing anything especially fancy. Nothing too impressive about it.

 

My supremely optimistic guess is that it'll take me another three weeks to get through this, but 4-5 is more likely.

Incoming, tau ethereal drone:

I feel that tau should NOT be putting their most important individuals in harm's way, as such I decided a drone projecting an image of the leading ethereal was more fitting. Not sure how well the "hologram" effect came out but it looks good enough for me!

Nothing in this edition - just bling.

 

It did used to be for the support system which allowed you to land in difficult terrain - now I just stick them on cause I can ;)

 

Longstrike has 2 of them to help him stand out.

I love how these sensors always made it harder to physically put your Hammerhead/Devilfish into terrain without breaking something while making it easier rules-wise. :D
