Default Shas'el






Finished off my Shas'el for my 1k static army.

Figured that since the army was static, his pose should reflect that. I even gave him some damage to reflect the stand-and-shoot philosophy, so he's been hit a few time.

I think he turned out pretty well, table-top quality at least.

Comments and crits greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

This guy is the only one I have right now as far as Tau go. I tend to do things in blocks. HQ, then troops, elites, etc...

I buy that way too. Only pick up the next piece once the previous has been assembled and painted. So now that the Shas'el is done, I get to go out and buy some fire warriors. :P

I'm wondering if his base is a little boring. I'm going to pick up some static grass and maybe even some of that snow stuff and try to mke it look like the snow is disappearing and the grass is growing. War in spring time as it were.

Puts my 'el to shame. You have motivated me to start painting again, and to do it alot better as well. Nice work.

never been a fan of unrealistic edge highlighting i'm afraid. And you've got some really horrible mould/join lines on the piece, notably on the jet pack.

Colour selection is different and seems to work well.

Painting is very neat and tidy. You have good brush control.

My advice would be look at the highlighting by checking a real examples of how light is reflected off of different materials, rather then use the eavy metal option for highlighting.

7 out of 10. Good job.

Too true. You've inspired me to buy a Shas'El and do it to that standard. Very nice.

Nice to see it finished, nice battle damage, and the white marking really stand out, good work.

Nice, Very clean and neat. How did you get those white stripes so straight?
