Hi guys !
As I head for the end of my SM project before the end of the year, I think to work on other projects (I have my airborne IG, but I want something more "xenos" to paint and collect as I only have human armies...)
So for the last days, my tau army is back on the workdesk.
for a brief history, I've begun to collect taus when the army made her first appearance, and I'm still fond of the manga look of the minis as I'm a big fan of Macross and other mecha-anime.
So after several different scheme during the years, I've tested a more battleworn look, and a scheme that fits my gaming table more than the previous.
The goal is to finish the units still undercoated, repaint the whole army in the new scheme and add some new units during the coming months (piranha, kroots, vespids, hammerheads,...).
Here is the first XV armour in is new scheme :
The armour and the drone are not completely done yet (basing on the drones and a few details to rework), but you have a good idea of the new look of this army : battledamages, dirt and OSL...
Next to come are the other members of the team (2 more XV8 with converted heads).
And here is the pathfinder squad, nearly done (minus some lenses and some little details) :
