I saw the thumbnail and I was like "THE GREEN! OH GOD MY EYES" and then I clicked and I was super impressed. :) Very crisp, very smooth and lovely attention to detail. Well done.

Very nice, I was expecting a big blob of green from glancing over the thumbnails, but was impressed once the larger pictures opened. Looking forward to seeing more, especially if there are Kroot involved.

I've got to say, the gems are really, really striking. The simple, bright colours are very 2nd Edition too (if Tau had existed in 2nd Edition ;)) and make for a nice change of pace.

Love the new mini!

Just as a side question, does your name come from the Lipstick Joey advertises in FRIENDS?

IUCHIBAN! LIP STICK FOR MEN! :D

I'm afraid it doesn't. It's the name of a Character of the Leyend of the Five Rings (One of the evil ones). But for sure, it would be nice, if it would have come from the Joey Lip thing!

Here are my brand new Missilesides. I have to say that is was quite tedious to paint them all, specially at the end, but I think the result is quite nice.

All of your models here look brilliant, have you thought of adding any Sept markings? But the green is delicious!

Great work.....a fully painted Stormsurge, before release......now that is efficiency I am envious of!

Like the nice 'clean' Tau look, mine are the same....what's next up on the painting table? Ghostkeel pre-release? ;-)

I've been distracted by a side project of late...time to get back to my Tau...

Keep up the good work.

Cheers,
El

Hi all!

After the release of the new codex I knew I wanted to have a new commader for my army. I wanted something really fluffy and I came up with the idea of converting the new commander kit to show the status and his military rank inside my army. Tau are hunters, and hunters hunt using spears. So I decided that to show his position he should bear a big spear.

I called him the First Hunter.

This is what I came up with:
222791

And here is the painted model:

Hi all,

during the last month I've been working on something new for my army. I did not have any Piranhas and the new formation in the Mont'ka book was a great oportunity to add some to my army. Of course I would need a lot of Drones (That was the boring part), so I painted like 50 of them ... Here's the result

7 Piranhas (The leader and three unis of 2)

and the Drones
