Default Ancients Tau

This will likely be a slow progression as i have a lot of other projects on the go but here is my start, converted o shovah as my general and te warrior is te colour scheme i am working with.




The blue is due another highlight yet, and the cloth is charadon granite with a half granite half black wash, these guys are rebels and so i want to keep them dark.

the converted o shovah looks pretty sweet dude.

but the paint job... it's to dark for tau you need to add a bright colour into the mix.

How ironic it is that as fast as we spread progress and hope throughout the galaxy, the Tyranids spread death and despair. Only united can we hope to stand against them.

Sorry guys no the warrior isnt finished yet, but he is staying dark as the force are o shovah type rebels possibly even more so i havent decided, but they are not all about the greater good.

I quite like it, probably because when I did Tau my favourite colour scheme was a dark blue. Didn't ever get to finish the army, but there's still a soft spot for the few models that did get painted.

Anyway, despite the other comments here, I think the dark colour looks good - a squad of those would look quite imposing. Only part I'm a bit tied up on is the white on its helmet; maybe it's just the photo, but it seems a bit thick and out of place.

Well, that's my two cents anyway. Good luck and nice work so far.

my advice is go with a brighter armour scheme and go with a deep blue cloth. and if you really want them to stand out make the gun a different colour.

but otherwise liking the suit, nice but simple conversion with brings out the more reble side of O'Shovah

Ok due to fast reactions i finished him up (i was being lazy it was nearly done).




Thanks for the yellow idea, i couldnt decide on a sept colour, but he is staying this dark. I am going for a freedom tau army, trying to get away from the ethereals personality numbing greater good. The darker colours help capture the personality of a tau who lives as he wants rather than how he is told.
