I decided to get some Tau as part of another project I'm working on. Physically they were the closest model to what I imagined another race to look like (for play testing some rules for a game we were making to play between each other).
The Tau are also part of a new project to start a 40k army. I've attempted it twice before with Sisters of Battle and Orks but never really committed to those. I've also never built a 40k tank, so this will hopefully be the first foray into 40k. I've gone for an urban warfare style colour scheme for these guys and wanted a distinct emblem which matched the story for the alternate game. Should look cool on these Tau too.
So here are the first few I finished. Going to get a new camera too, so I apologise for poor quality photos.
I'm also doing a little twist to this project. As someone who generally enjoys painting over playing the game I'm open to suggestions as to what I should get next!
