Default Tau WIP Dev Journal (Updates pg. 3!)

Hi guys. I've been lurking around these boards for a while now and just signed up today.

I've started a development journal at http://tauempire.weblog.com/. I'll be using it as a diary of my WIP tau army.

Here's a a few pics I've taken so far:





Comments and critisism welcome!

WOW... very sharp, very crisp and almost faultless.

I love your stealth feature, different to just the bases colors, you've gone and done the terrain as well. Nice job.

The only thing i can pick up on in there is the ice blue (??) highlights look just a little too bright. But i know cameras are terrible for making things stand out more.

9.5/10

Excellent detail, very nice and clean. Nice bases too, you make the stealth melding work really well.

That is some awesome stealthfield, indeed.
They look great, very nice.

Thanks for the kind words guys. I think next up is another 3 FW's. They just need hightlights and basing.

@ Reunion_Round: The highlights are actually Shadow Grey mixed with Skull White. If you go to my development blog, it details the exact colours used on the models

@ laxlover: The rocks are GW's gravel.

Here's a pic of my 'to-do' group (because everyone loves pictures!). I'm going to do the half painted FW's painted next. Then probably break off and do a battlesuit once i get some magnets. Expect some pictures soon.



There's actually a partially assembled DF off picture and some unassembled kroot
