Hey guys I've had some Tau for quite a while now and have always wanted to play them alot more. With the arrival of 6th ed i thought I'd dust them off and bring them back to war.

Recently i made a trade with Commandojimbob where i gave him a Guard army of mine and he gave me his Tau which has greatly increased their numbers :)

Heres some pics of what i currently have.

Everything on the right hand side is what i got from Commandojimbob and everything on the left is my own.

I'm not sure whether I'm going to repaint Commandojimbobs Tau or just touch up and finish off his models as i find some of the crisis suits look ace when finished and weathered.

I'm looking forward to getting it all built and added to the army. Not really worked with FW resin before though so should be interesting.

In regards to Shas O' Ralai has anyone any tips for building him as he look like he'll easily suffer from the weak ankle syndrome all crisis suits seem to contract lol.

FW resin is nice to work with. Just make sure you clean it good and well before you build and paint. Any moulding problems can usually be solved with warm water.

Are you going to repaint Jimbobs army to your own scheme, or paint yours to his scheme?
