Big update!

I finally managed to get through the tanks. Had to rush them a bit unfortunately, as I'm running out of time. The hammerheads are all magnetised, so they can be railheads or ionheads. There's also a spare turret to make one into a skyray. Unfortunately, the camera has 'yellowed' some of the photos a bit. The background is white paper, so that should give you an idea of how much the pics have been 'yellowed'. Anywhere heres the pics.

First devilfish (the one from earlier in the thread):

For some reason, they've come out very shiny. Its not noticable 'in the flesh'. The main difference is in the number of plates painted red (and obviously, the stippling patterns). At some point I want to do proper bases, but only if I have time.

Untill next time!

Nest update.
Firstly, budget, which I forgot to do last month.
-2.50 + 25 (march) + 25 (april) = +47.50

Next, painted battle suits. The wepons are all magnetised, but I've only had time to do the ones needed for the tourney. I'm reasonably happy with them. A bit of a rush job, as I'm runnong out of time. Once again, the camera has bleached the pics a bit yellow. The white is clean white, not yellowy.
Pics:

4 crisis suits:


Commander:





Crisis suit 1


Crisis suit 2


Crisis suit 3


Crisis 3 has a magnetised head. This is so I can give him a blacksun filter if I don't have points for a flamer (red is blackun)



Untill nest time!

Update time! This will probrabyl be may last update for a while, as I'm taking a break from tau to work on my chaos stuff (which will hopefully be ready for Cardiff Carnage).

This army was built for the student nationals in Edinburgh. I didn't do well (3 minor losses, 1 massacre in my oponents favour and one draw), but the painting score have not yet been posted. However it was a lot of fun, and I would heartily encourage any students that have the time to give it a go.

Anyway, heres the pics of the completed army (including the extra broadside and skyray, which were ot used in Edinburgh.

Full army:


Devilfish 1


Devilfish 2


Pathfinder devilfish


Hammerhead 1


Hammerhead 2


Skyray


Fire warriors squads 1-3


Fire warrior squad 4 and pathfinders


Broadsides


Crisis suits




Thanks for all the suggestions and comments.
Cheers
General

Nice army, how come you didn't put those little black spinkles on the rest of the army too? would look consistent across the board then

I though it would look a bit odd on the fire warriors, and wasn't sure about the suits. Didn't have time to test it on the suits in the end, as if it looked wrong, I wouldn't have had time to work the white back up. To be honest, it wasn't really an issue, as it still works as a force, as the white and red tie everything together.
