Converted Kroot Hounds

Converted Kroot Hounds I don’t know what it was but I watched District 9 recently and after seeing the transport ship they were trying to raise to get to the spaceship I became inspired to get back to some Tau. I’m not ready to get back to the multi levels of Green on them but I did decide to finish converting my Kroot...

On the Painting Table Update 9/9/2010

On the Painting Table Update 9/9/2010 So many plans with so little time… As you can see by want I’ve been putting up here for the last few months, I have been painting more than playing with I could say maybe 2 games in 3 months at the most. That is excluding the many games of Crossbows and Catapults that I have been playing with my...

Warhammer 40,000 Tau Tactics Deployment Strategies

Warhammer 40,000 Tau Tactics Deployment Strategies It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything Tau related but in my daily reading I notices that Old Shatter Hands from The Tau of War has put up a new video of Tau Deployment Strategies which is something that I’m sure I need to get my army working to it’s strengths rather than having...

Theming Your Army and How I do it

Theming Your Army and How I do it As I have said before I started playing Warhammer 40k with 2nd Edition back when I couldn’t paint properly and when we would ‘theme’ an army I would just be painting squads all different which would give me no basis for what the army was about. With that being said I had an eldar army which...

More Tau Completed

More Tau Completed I’ve had some time to get some more completed since I had them sitting there just waiting for final highlights. I’m not sure what it is but I had a hard time painting this suit. I really enjoyed modeling him and getting it to a position where he has the landing feel and also was a lot higher than...

Crimson Fists vs Tau – First Battle in 8 years…

Crimson Fists vs Tau – First Battle in 8 years… So after a 7-8 year hiatus of playing Warhammer 40,000 I finally managed to get into my Local Games Workshop Store at Castle Hill to have a game so I could “refresh” myself on the rules for 5th edition since the last time I played would have been with 3rd edition. As I’m still in the...

Stealth Team and Objective Marker Finished

Stealth Team and Objective Marker Finished I’ve had some more time to paint and I’ve found I was slacking finishing off my VX15 Stealth Team. For some reason the original inspiration that I had when I was undercoating them. I’m thinking it has something to do with the black undercoat that I was using when I picked them up since I...

The Eye’s Have It…

The Eye’s Have It… Since I’ve been painting again I’ve been trying to relearn everything that I have forgotten. One thing that I haven’t been able to get the hang of is Eyes… I’ve been trying to avoid them but as I’ve been working on a new objective marker I decided to do a Tau tank gunner...

Let me know what...
