Default Working with Scrap

This is 10% Luck, 20% Skill, 15% concentrated Power of Will, 5% Pleasure, 15% Pain, and 100% reason to remember the name.

In this thread I'm going to post pictures of my slightly insane works of creation. I mostly use scraps from my bitz box, which usually ends with my models have truly unique appearences.

I'll start off the thread with a couple and Tau Pathfinders, and a Sniper Team Spotter.

Pathfinder Shas'Ui with Rail Rifle.
I've started painting him as well


With black undercoat

I forgot to snap a picture of him before I started painting, so sorry for the lack of detail in the shot

The next time you quote Fort Minor and corrupt your battlebrothers with its heretical and foul linties of RnB, you get four terra days of solitary prayer and fasting, along with doubled battlegear rites, brother marine. :P :

I like the look of the last guy. Its some good economy making use of all those spare bits. Cant wait for some more painting

Bet you can't guess what I used for the hands of the Shas'ui

It's really hard to actually see the look of these due to not-too-good pics, mixed colours (painted bits, plastic bits and black coating). Sorry

I'm really sorry about the image quality. I've found my mobile is taking better pictures then my camera :P :sadnshocked:

I've almost got them painted, which will help the detail show

The Shas'ui's hands are a pair of Crypt Ghoul hands (Vampire Counts WHFB).

What about their poses? Any good?

I like the poses, but I'm not sure that Tau have clawed hands...

It is hard to see those things with undercoat on I cannot discern any details.

Yeah, I kinda forgot to clip his nails before undercoating him :P He's the only one with Ghoul hands anyway, so it shouldn't be a big problem :P

Better pictures up shortly :D

Water down oyur paitns they look really thick. Also the blue on the tau heads looks too dark and needs a more greyish tone.
