Default Starscream Signs on!

Hi there!

Just found this site by accident and being a player for the greater good, I thought I'd sign up!

I first started playing 40K in 1996, but got bored with it, sold my armies and bought a computer instead.
A couple of years ago, I got back into it again.

Tired of seeing GW armies that are black with a bit of coulour added on, I decided that I liked the look of the Tau.

At my local GW store, my army had been dubbed with the phrase 'Ice Cream'! Heh heh!!
I'll be adding pics later, but you'll see why.

I've used a rather unusual colour for the undercoat for my Tau.
It's a mixture of PRU Blue and Desert Pink (WW2 aircraft colours) giving a pinky-purply-grey shade.
With Vomit Brown over the top, it's a pretty cool colour scheme.

Tell me what you think (when you see it).

Cheers

Starscream

Simply got bored with playing!

A friend got me into 40k, and the decided that he couldn't be bother coming over for games.
That and the fact that GW stores used to have a policy where you could only use models that had at least been base coated, and I had three HUGE armies (Ultramarines, Eldar and Imperial Guard), and I'm a pretty good painter and it takes time to get a squad really done to my best standard.
So, nowhere to play meant I had a load of stuff that wasn't being used.
I regret it now, of course.

Actually, it's played well for me.
When I got back into 40k, I decided that I'd go for the Tau, and that they'd be a quick (painted army. Of course, looking at my models (in the gallery as soon as they';ve been approved), they still look great, I've just kept them simple with just one level of highlighting.

In fact, a couple of weeks ago, I was at GW Manchester (UK) and the Regional Manager was there.
When he saw my army, he took my number suggesting that when the next collectors guide comnes out, that my army might be selected.
Hope so!!

Cheers

Starscream

Yeah, I hope so too!

Very cool

I like them, even if the color doesn't quite suit me... Oh well, everybody has their own tastes... I personally prefer dark shemes 8)
