Default Apocalypse WiP Tau with pics

Hello and welcome to my project page.I will be attempting to build a large tau apocalypse force over the coming months fingers crossed if work and social life dont get in the way.
I have been gaming for some time but have only recently got back into it after a few years away.
I will try to include as many pics as pos for every one to enjoy.
the colour scheme i have chosen is the standard tau colour vomit brown over tau orca sept,and will be high lighted with bleach bone mix

so first up i have my Kroot only squad i have fully finished at mo



next are my WiP Firewarriors


just start to see the highlights on the pulse rifle


And here is my forgeworld barricuda a gift from my other half.




This is an xv8 conversion using parts from the xv25 to represent the first steps towards making the xv8 smaller and more powerfull with limited stealth abilites still very much a WiP



This week I will continue to paint firewarriors and will continue to update pics as I go.

my to build/paint list as it stands.
*hammerhead
*tx42
*3x xv8
*devil fish x2
*4x xv25 stealth suits
*kroot
*AX-10 tigershark with railguns
*5x pathfinders
so I have a fair amount to keep me going and I look foward to updating this log on a regular basis.

really nice start there. the only advice that I can give you is to build up your highlights more gradually, you seem to be using 2 colours. the base colour, and then the highlight colour. try building it up through a few layers. This will add a bit more intensity to the highlights. But as your models are, they'll be a great looking apoc army

Another quick update had an hour free this morning so picked up the xv8 prototype and this was the result



I think its an improvment over the first paint job he had.
