Hello Folks,

My name is Rob and I always played mainly Fantasy. My local shop (in the Netherlands) started a Tale of many Gamers. That means we all buy a box of the chosen army and paint that within the month. After 5 months we can choose 1 box (of 31 euro maximum) for free. After the six months of stuff we are going to play a mini-tournament with a battleforce as main prize.

My list of models i am going to buy over the 6 months:
Month 1: Fire warriors
Month 2: Pathfinders
Month 3: Tau Commander in xv8-02
Month 4: Broadside Missilesuit
Month 5: Broadside Missilesuit
Month 6 (free Month): Kroot

This list can still change in when I buy certain things. But at the end of the 6 months I will get these things.

Testmodel:

Well, hopefully you will like it and I will be updating every time I finish something!
Next month will be Pathfinders (and I bought a riptide extra :P)

With regards,

Those fire warriors are great; especially the gem on the shoulder pads!
Loving the ethereal conversion as well. More!

Oki, a special for you. This is a sneak peak at the Riptide I am painting. (every weapon is magnatized. Allthough I don't think I will play him with the other weapons)

Looking good, I like the riptide kneeling, makes no sense that something that large should kneel :P

Gorgeous stuff. Love the switch to the gem and the effect on the gem.

A month has passed and I have painted my Pathfinders. I only need to do the snow, but I couldn't manage that in this month because I was swamped with work.

Hopefully you'll like it.

Okay, Almost a new month. So, some update time!

For my third month I've painted my commander and I think he turned out cool :D

And for all the stuff I have finished now, a group photo!

Next month it will be a Broadside missilesuit!
Hopefully you like it and let me know what you think.

With regards,
Grey

The Commander looks great, really neat painting (the sort I just can't do), with crisp highlights. I wonder if he needs a little more white though? Looks fine on his own, but with the rest of the army, he's very green. I know he has the same areas painted white as the infantry, but they're a lot smaller so it looks like more is painted. The Commander has a huge body and long legs, which means proportionally less is white. Maybe a white section in the right leg armour would help a bit? Just a thought, he definitely looks brilliant as he is!

Great work Grey!

Hey Lew,

I have altered the Commander a bit to break the big slab of green. I added the purple leg thingy and applied (for the first time ever) some transfers!

Hope you (and ofcourse everyone) like the updated commander:

(His weapons are magnatized, so don't worry I didn't break them)

With regards,
Grey

Yeah! That looks great now. The purple works brilliantly to break up the green, and the transfers compliment your detailed purple lenses perfectly.

(I did wonder where his weapons went!)

Hello warseer,

Its been a while since I've posted something. But as I just had the tournament which concludes the tale of gamers, I've got a picture of the whole 1000pts army I have painted over the last 6 months.

Hopefully you like it. Its a bit of a small foto with a wide overview, but Hopefully you can make out some of the work.

PS: I'll see when I can get better pictures of the models and post them here.

Nice looking army you have there, like the modified broadsides missile weapon. Are you going to expand the army further?

Hey Slaaaaaaaaanesh,

Thanks man! For now I am focussing on my Tombkings army because I have been painting these Tau for to long now. In the future I still want more ofcourse.

List: More firewarriors, kroot, broadside, riptide, hammerhead and a skyray....I think thats about it. Oh no, and a barracuda :P
