Well what type of playing style do you like:1.Slow and heavy.
2.Light and fast. :-\

Plus do you mind sticking metal models together. >

light and fast. the tanith army is a stealth army, so they need doctrines that let them hit hard and fast and be able to move on to the next enemy

Forget the Green stuff for Cameoline. assemble your catachans as normal, paint them up, then run down to your local fabric store and buy about a 3 square feet of thin green (or black, or whatever color your cloaks are) cloth, and make little capes. Looks amazing and realistic, and is much much much easier than greenstuffing capes on every single model.

yeah, but you dont have to worry about putty coming unravled, or falling off. cloth sounds like s good idea, and if it works ror you, thats great but im a little skeptical about how well it would work.

capes work well if done with fabric if you weigh them downwith glue.

Good news guys. The Tanith army is in the works . My GW store no longer carries Tanith however my friend is giving me 36 Tanith models, I'm also bits ordering 40 more. (including gaunt's ghosts)
Also my GW store will be running a campaign based around Tanith's system so my army will be the main feature. I'll post pictures and updates of how the campaign and my army turn out
