Your weathering is superb, that Medusa looks authentic! I'm also very much looking forward to seeing Durak painted up, your conversions are subtle and effective and I can't wait to see the finished article.

So as some of you may have seen, i have changed the title... after 2 days of figuring out how to do it lol.

i have decided to embark on a journey of the alien, after the new box sets come out and after a day of list building i, i horror figured out i could build a 1500 point army for less then £200.
witch craft you say? no, discount sellers my children discount sellers!

i picked the whole lot up for 180 and have my first test lists

must admit ive always loved the look of the Tau, probaly because i loved gundam wing as a kid. what there not to love about mech suits ay,

im pondering on the army theme, im thinking of blue and white or maybe a blue metallic not sure yet.

Interesting, I picked up a tau starter set myself. How effective is that list you've built?

to be honest matey, i dont have a fogyist.

i pretty much just added up what i could build with the budget i had. as with my death Guard this is more of a thematic list. the formation of all the battle suits alow them to deep strike in on turn 2. so the strike teams will be painted quite battered.

as to weather its competative or not ill have to wait and see. not that im to fussed im much of a modeler than a gamer.

Well ladies and gentlemen, first I must apologies for my absents. Have had no motivation hobby wise for a while now but thought I should stop procrastinating.
So here we are, after months of being sat on my painting table he’s finally done…ish.

Overall im quite pleased with the model. The bronze was a lot more in your face, but after a good all over coat of matt vanish it muted it down quite nicely. Think the embellishments looking tarnished suits the death guard style better. Glad I took my time with its construction, im most proud of the sculpting on the face and hair.
