My army is being revamped after seeing a "copycat" paint scheme on a website. So time for a repaint and new models. Here is the first one done.

First of, welcome on board hope you'll enjoy your time here!

Now on to that excellent ethereal. Looking very good, especially like the earthy tones which give the model great depth and warmth. Which contrasts very nicely with the grim/serious face of the ethereal.

What kind of colourscheme will you be using for his heavier armoured buddies?

And nearly forgot, how did you make that base?


Looking forward to seeing some more, somewhere down the line :wink:

The base was simply made from greenstuff and moulded with a knife and tools into rockish bricks. My army will have a more cityfight (dirty city) look to it with a khaki base color, grey secondary color, and light blue highlights and sept markings.
Kinda like my avatar and siggy.

Nice dude - very grimmy and dirty. Looking forward to seeing battle suits etc in that scheme. Great painting very controlled.

What scheme were they orginally?

the sig reads "...for the greater good" and it does look like CCCP

The model is a production model and is featured/painted in the Tau Empire codex

This is the reason i "re-started" my tau.

i have already primed over my devilfish but my old ethereal has the pattern on his cape still.



The model i saw was this:


I doubt it was a "copycat" just a coinidence.
