Hey all

Here is an army I had an idea for a while back when I came upon a lot of spare bare shadowsun heads. Its basically over the top and bright, trying to play off the anime aspect of the Tau. I paint so many armies I like to do a few now and then to sell that are humorous and catch people completely off balance.

I got a comment on youtube "sweet hot tau WOW" or something like that. I guess I did my job.

Here are pics:

That is a very well painted army. I know some gamers are put off by humorous armies, but they can't fault you on your painting skills
This was beautifully done. Maybe you could use some greenstuff to convert some character models?

I did make a female ethereal out of the limited edition ethereal by adding a shadowsun head and some other parts...but I ran out of time as I have a lot of commission work coming up.

Thanks for the compliments!

I hate you, man. That's like right next to the Pretty Marines in awesomeness. Why can't I do stuff like this?

By the way, when it comes to female Tau heads, I'm using new plastic daemonette ones. Some work nicely when you just shave off the ears and nose and craft her a slit on the forehead. And the guy at Eastern-Empire uses Beastman Ungor heads for his Tau with heavy sanding and greenstuffing:

This is a great army. So it is done?! Is this an army for yourself? I love the purple's... what colors did you use for the hammerhead? Also what other armies are planned for the studio? Any eldar?

All-female armies bum me out too. As is painting little anime faces all over your vehicles.

The OP's technique is pretty sweet and I like the bone colour

Yeah, a real boner.


I don't see why people get upset with the whole concept. We have all male armies coming out our ears and no one has a problem with them. The fluff gives room for females, even full female regiments/units, etc. So doing it is just fluffy. And I don't remember anyone giving this much gried to the Pretty Marines for being so flamboyant. Maybe because they were all male. But do it to chicks and...

People just can't do anything different. Ever.

Pretty Marines and Angry Marines are pretty bad examples when you know its just a 4chan joke. And as such they aren't taken seriously at all, one way or the other.

I'm all for co-ed armies, but to go out of your way to make an entire army female? mmmmmmmmmmm :eyebrows:

No, the OP just wanted to do this for giggles as he stated, so I'm not hassling him in his choice. I'm just agreeing with general statements hallowed_are_the_ori wrote.

And I just wanted to add that aesthetically, his painting technique is good, even if some of the colour choice is wack and I think the anime heads are just superfluous to the effect and look kinda poos

How are they bad examples, when this is a funny-ha-ha army as well, as you yourself pointed out. There's a ton of wacky armies that might or might not "fit" into the background. But the moment you add breats that weren't there to begin with, it's just wrong.


I'm all for co-ed armies, but to go out of your way to make an entire army female? mmmmmmmmmmm :eyebrows:
Here's to looking at all those Sisters, Witch Elves, Howling Banshees, Sisters of Sigmar, etc., etc. Just like there are all male armies, there are all female armies (such as all female Guard regiments). If GW made more models, no one would be bummed out with females. But actually having to make them draws attention to it and causes all this unrest.

Why doesn't anyone get worked up when someone does a male daemonette or a male conversion of Shadowsun?

I like it. Reminds me a little of Tank Girl (http://www.coconut-hut.co.uk/acatalog/tank-girl1.jpg). And looking at the Eldar and Marines, sporting bright colours in the field doesn't seem that odd. There's even some real world references. I remember a story of a WW1 fighter squadron that due to lack of right colours, painted their planes in everything they could get, resulting into a real flying circus. Worked as a terror tactic as they were good pilots, so when the enemy saw the bright fighters coming, they knew they were up against a tough opposition.

But the moment you add breats that weren't there to begin with, it's just wrong. What's your issue here? We both acknowledge that this was done as a bit of a joke, and that's sweet - like pretty marines etc this isn't a serious example of the more heinous modelling projects out there.

That also doesn't discredit the opinion me and hallowed share.

But actually having to make them draws attention to it and causes all this unrest. :rolleyes: I was going to mention how I feel that SoBs are a great army, well developed in concept and aesthetic, but I stopped because I thought that'd just be stating the obvious.

We're not talking about the all-female armies that are already produced and ingrained in the fluff, we're talking about the desire certain people feel to make an army all female for whatever reason


Why doesn't anyone get worked up when someone does a male daemonette or a male conversion of Shadowsun? I haven't seen it so I can't see how this is some criminal act as you're trying to portray it to be - but again, we're not talking about single models, which is a very different kettle of fish to whole armies.

The faces on the vehicles remind me of a modern version of nose art on aircraft from the Second World War.
It is not any stranger than painting a bomber squadron to look like giant tropical parrots.

Edit: Or stranger than people who use a cute terminator girl with a gun as their avatar.
It's the basic girls with guns fantasy.;)

I don't think painting anime girls on large vehicles counts as the "real deal" unless there's two girls simultaneously blinking their giant eyes, smiling like mental patients, and giving peace symbols with whichever hand isn't busy holding down their mini skirts. Also they should either look like they're barely into their teens, or like their racks would cause even the strongest woman to suffer crippling back problems... preferably both. THEN we're talkin' fanboy.

Just my $.02

First of all, naysayers... at least he isn't putting goobly bits on crappy looking random Gundam models.

Secondly, in the Grim Darkness of the Future, if there were only otakus instead of war (or in this case, both), we'd all be up a creek... I think it's an unsettling enough theme for our game, k?

Great painting mate! This army is great, not only because the other female armies are just crap painted models with greenstuff breasts slapped on that are larger than the torso, but this has a good theme and its a really respectable looking force.

I'm not "nerd raging'', i just find the concept itself stupid. Nicely painted, but stupid concept and execution.

The painting is decent, the conecpt is lame, and the anime influence is intolerably kitsch.

And the colours clash horribly.

So I object to it:

- Artistically
- In terms of Fluff and Background
- As a concept.
- Because it's anime.

I suppose the actual paint job is tolerable though. But the subject is horrifying.

BTW: Scolar, you sound like a fake account. Odd that you would take such a strong, seemingly knowledgeable opinion (on both the subject of the thread and the posters within it) upon your first post.

If you disagree with me, spam my inbox with hate-mail... it would likely be a better place than this thread to express your stupidity.

Wow, look how quickly this whole thread devolved into ranting and raving. A strong point as to many hobbyists take on mixing anime and 40k. One funny thing I read in Hallowed_Ori's post was "Nicely painted, but stupid concept and execution." If its nicely painted, the concept can be stupid but most certainly not the execution, as the execution of the concept would result in nice painting. The theme is kind of lame, but the execution of the concept is very well done. I find it disturbing that everyones ranting about anime, seem to have scared away the OP. Its a game, let the people have their fun, at least they chose tau for the anime theme and not space marines with giant anime heads....

Don't like it, then fine, but at least don't be rude about it.

For the record, it ain't my cup of tea, but thats some brilliant painting and design work.

Wrong choice of wording about execution, it's hard to explain reasons for disliking an idea, without a sea of people bitching on a forum about it and spending their free time trying to dig up things to whinge at me about.

Like i said, his painting is very nice and spot on, he's definitely put the effort into the painting dept, but the theme isn't that great (in my opinion) and i don't "get'' the anime faces on the tanks.

you don't "get" anything thats divates from the "normal" world of 40K. Especially Anime.

I have no problem with things that are inspired by things outside of 40k, but i just don't like the whole "lets paint Anime heads on Tau tanks" thing.

It's a personal preference, that is all.

The line with the models overload with the Skulls is there. Here is the line with people with creativity and whose skin is thick enough to allow people to expand thier idea of fun and creativity.

RedSarge
11-09-2008, 07:54
I personally feel this army is too far from the 40k background.
It's not about SKULLS, if you just painted a plain skull on a vehicles large open surface. It would look bad, very bad, unless you done it right.

The "anime heads" don't really make sense with the army, like those eldar vehicles you see that are so insanely detailed it would take one man ages to paint the design.... on a WAR-MACHINE. Its not an issue of master-crafting a tank, it is the lack of coherent setup of imagery.... wtf did I just say?


LionoftheBegs: They all hate creativity and object to everything that breaks thier precious world. You and I are partners!

If I hated creativity why the hell am I in this hobby? How is the Op "breaking" my "precious world". People can buy a box of 40k and feed it to there dog, I could care less. You really are condescending when it comes to anyone disagreeing with your likes. Yes this army is a radical idea, how can it not be?

Wh40k players have been droned to accept fluff standards. Ultramarines are blue, guard drive tanks with camoflouge, not murals of anime school girls.

All this means is your just going to have to learn to except, that people won't 100% except your ideas from the start. I know I had trouble except an Inquisitorial Terminator army. All equipped with MK6 Corvus "beakie helmets, but now I love the army, it's characterful and something new.

It did not break my precious world.

BTW asking Op if he has..

Have you ever done anything with /d/?
I've been to 4chan, and I don't think that belongs here.. or at least don't post pictures of it.

LionoftheBegs
11-09-2008, 12:57
In anycase, this is exactly what 40K needs. Enough with the death and destruction. Armies like my Desu Brigade and Female Tau army is wha tis needed. So that the Skulls and death and bad miniatures obviously come to some good use.

PinkFellSquig
11-09-2008, 13:16
Less talking, more posting of cuddly Tau, plz.

Naysayers, please refer yourselves to the Tyranid army built out of random weapon bits and legs, every single joke army ever, my girlfriend's pink and purple (and green) Wood Elves, her soon-to-be obnoxious gangsta Orks, the Blood Letters daemonic legion (B L O O D, those letters... with axes and googly eyes), any Slaanesh army with a giant dong as a Hellcannon/Lascannon/etc., cow marines, Hello Kitty marines, a Monty Python's Holy Grail-themed Empire army, the Alamo-themed Empire army, and the list keeps going...

Yes, the gothic and fluffy nature of 40k AND fantasy are the major visual appeal of the game. Yes that means that many players will respect what colors are on the expensive packaging, and will adhere to what's written in tiny print in quotes on page 467 of the rulebook, or in some obscure OOP Black Library book that may as well be used as toilet paper for its poor phrasing and run-on sentences.

The point is, that because of all the fluffiness and undying gothic imagery, there are bound to be a minority of players who just want a) a pretty army, b) a light-hearted army, c) a defiantly silly army. These are not defects in the system, but the inevitable balance (must I draw up a comparison to Neo in the Matrix? I mustn't...) to the Games Workshop equation. Without these gamers and hobbyists rebelling against the fluff, we'd have absolute chaos, as hobbyists spiraled into a depression of trying to be more gothic than the next person.

Marines would wear armour entirely made of skulls, with tattered robes covering all of the detail of said skulls, while out of their hoods peered eyes that were so illuminated with painted-on lighting effects that the entire model was painted Ice Blue with a Skull White highlight. They would carry bolters and chainswords completely obscured by amassed purity seals marked "#1 Goth" and "Dour Expression Contest, 1st Place." Then, on every conceivable nook and cranny of the model would be either paint chips from battle damage, emo-fascist expressions in 0.01 size Imperial Gothic font, or microscopic engravings of the emperor's gold-plated battle wang.

I might be exaggerating. I might not. Point is, we need players like this. Doesn't matter if anime sucks. Leave it be. We just need people to break the system now and again, or GW will push the goth envelope even further... or the players will themselves.

If i bought Civil War figures and converted them into Cylons from BSG, people would bitch. Same thing here. No difference.

Anyway, my opinion hasn't changed on it, like i said, i respect that the original poster is a very good painter and hobbiest, i just dont like the theme.

That's MY personal opinion lionofthebegs, and if you don't agree, i don't care. You're entitled to your opinion and everyone's entitled to theirs (despite what you think).

You seem to think Differently with my Desu Brigade or anything else I do. It seems that you seem to think that only your opinion matters.

Great paint scheme, and I agree with PinkFellSquig on this one. Would like to see a pic of the entire army

So... I googled the 'Desu Brigade'. It's... ahh... horrifying. But nice effort and all that.

On the plus note, it makes me like this Female tau Army a little bit more.

That is enough gentlemen; you have all had your chance on the soapbox. This thread is turning into a debate beyond the painting log. Praexes, Scolar, LionoftheBegs, and hallowed_are_the_ori you have all made your point, your conversation is finished and any further comments made by any of you on this thread will be considered ignoring a moderatorís direction. Leave off.

All members can post their opinions of the original posterís work, attacking other memberís opinions or insinuating they are somehow disturbed for having one different from yours is not on. Having a chat room conversation in a painting log is also not allowed.

Brilliant bone/cream on the tanks! Very smooth!

I love the contrast with the various secondary colours you've used.

And the bubble design is great.

I'm all for variety. Its great to see an army that breaks the standard gothic 40K look.:o

How do you get you paints to look so smooth and yet not shine? :confused:
I've tried multi layed thinned down paints and manage to achieve a smooth paint job, BUT always get a shine in the end which I find annoying.

Any chance of seeing the rest of the army?

Cheers
