Default Move along. Nothing to see here...

Well... I put all that work into this thing and the contest gets cancelled due to lack of interest... Oh well, at least I have a nice banner to announce my army's presence on the table now (how they fit it into a devilfish I have no idea, but who cares)

Heres a sort of front-ish shot. Lighting isn't very good (must've used too fast of a shutter speed again), but anyway. The banner is getting some wierd lighting effects on it, so just mentally block that out for now, theres some better pics of it coming since this one is mostly to show off the whole model

*pic removed due to recent events*

And heres a shot angled with better light on the banner

And finally, I duplicated the design on the other side. The design is a sword in front of the sept symbol of N'dras (thank god GW made that symbol easy to draw!). Then I did some fancy borders because it looked kinda plain. You can also see some of the work I did on the back of the model (why do the areas of my models that people dont look at always come out looking better?)

*pic removed due to recent events*

Anyway, feel free to comment on the model. Plus any of the other couple people who were actually going to enter that contest should also feel free to post up their banner models here if they want. It'll keep all the entries into that abortive contest together and use up less space on the forum

EDIT: Some recent events have occured that required the removal of the pics so as not to influence voting in any way.

Hey man that's looking great!

I really like the colour scheme you've used on your Tau, very clean and crisp, and that banner looks fantastic!

Keep up the great work!

Nice work, both on the standard and the model itself. I like how the flag design is very much like those you always see samuria carrying about; they fit very with Tau. I ish that i had come up with a cool "logo" for my army, as yours looks great.

You may just have inspired me....

Looks great. I think that could have done well in the contest.
I have walked the edge of the Abyss.
I have governed the unwilling.
I have witnessed countless empires break before me.
I have seen the most courageous soldiers fall away in fear.

I have seen your future.
And I have learned.

There will be no more Sadness. No more Anger. No more Envy.
