Okay, so I've mostly painted my Tau, but I have a few things left to do so I decided to give it a go and see if I can manage to actually start AND finish an army Plog.

So, without further ado, some models.

My Forgeworld XV9 battle suit (counts as iridium armour and cyclic ion blaster)

And mostly painted:

These guys were my ethereal's honour guard (an option which no longer exists)

These guys have the army Colours reversed. Their armour is painted the colour of the squad they have been promoted from and their right shoulder has been painted to have the normal armour colour.

Finally, my next major project (excluding the 26 fire warriors and 6 crisis suits I have to paint)

My barracuda, which I'll be using to count as either the fighter or bomber.

Following a minor incident I have had to remove the antennae.

fiiiiiiiinallyyyyy!!!!!!
great job Vinush i really like the "dirty red" especially on the piranha:)

Thank you.

Due to my hectic life and lack of time to paint I have had to go for a simple painting method.

I paint the models with mephiston red, adeptus battlegrey for the under suits and codex grey for the weapons. I then wash the entire model with nuln oil.

It really is that simple.

You've managed a better paint job than what I will. I'm in year 11 and I constantly have school work to do. (sigh)

But I see how a simple effect can work wonders when you have no time to paint.

I have little time due to being a teacher...

Wip of my Firestorm XV8s. They're ready for washing and basing.

Next up will be either a unit of fire warriors, or my Soulforge battlesuits.

Looking good Vinush.. How large is your army? 1500-1750?
Are uplanning on getting some of the new models like riptide or the weirdo plane, or are u sticking with the barracuda count as;) (really like that model)

vinush
28-04-2013, 19:22
Not too sure how many points I actually have... I'll work it out and let you know.

I'll eventually be getting a riptide, but not just yet. The barracuda will have to do for the flyer.

Koldegaard
28-04-2013, 21:11
Look forward to the riptide.. It is simply an amazing kit

vinush

It really looks it. The only downside is I have to paint it like a power ranger megazord due to an agreement with friends.

Koldegaard
18-05-2013, 17:52
Any progress on the megazord?? ;)

btw i gave in to the xv-9 and ordered a hazard suit ;)

vinush

Still not got it yet.

Right, I've decided that I need to add a second cadre to my main force and that I want to paint them a different colour to the red and black I have my main cadre, but I can't decide what colour to do.

With that in mind, which colour armour do you think I should go with from the following:

http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu324/vinush/9F3F56D0-13AD-46AD-9FDD-19943C653B23-6756-0000036D88A84380.jpg
White, Hawk Turquoise

Purple, orange, brown

http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu324/vinush/C75EB2C2-E4AB-4400-A9E5-DEF2B0B5BD22-6756-0000036D8F231F3C.jpg
Green, pink, yellow.

So, which of those colours do you prefer?

Asi the Red
22-05-2013, 05:20
I like the White best, then the Green.

vinush
22-05-2013, 06:02
The. Only problem with white is that my bases are white.

Koldegaard
24-05-2013, 19:10
Is that not the idea with the Taus camouflage? Dont think that should stop you that the color and bases match.. Either way im voting for the Yellow or turquoise, they look lovely!
I have just posted a XV9 in my blog.. i TOTALLY stole your pose with him stepping on a marine.. Remembered to give you praise though ;)
Have a nice weekend!

Yellow. It also fits nicely with the soldiers that are painted black and red.

vinush
26-06-2013, 07:44
I've begun painting my remaining units in a different colour scheme, to form a secondary FOC group of tau, but my phone is being awkward with photos ATM, so I can't upload them just yet

Update will follow as soon as I can get them uploaded.
