Default Pics Now! ARC Trooper Tau.

Hi Y'all

I posted a while back that I was working on a Tau Army painted like the ARC clone Troopers from the "Star Wars: Clone Wars" animated miniseries.

At first I couldn't get hold of a digital camera, and when I finally managed to get one, TO goes down :'(

Anyway, I can post them now.

Background Info:
The Banking World of Mu'unilist is an outer rim planet first populated by the Tau in the Second Expansion. Mu'unilist is famous for the great Earth Caste cities that cover most of the planets land mass and it's Water Caste Banks. Fire Warriors of the Mu'un Sept are said to be exellent strategists.

Pics: Unfortunately, my pics are too big to be attached to these messages, so I've uploaded them on Imageshack. just Click the Link to view.

Crisis Shas'el: El'sius

I'll post more in a few minutes.

Ps. Sorry in advance for the shoddy paintwork, it's all a average painter with old brushes and a small selection of paints could manage.

I decided to base them on 40mm round bases instead of those see-through ones. ;D

Kroot.

I used a Scorched Brown + Camo Green for the skin, and red, orange and yellow for the hair.

That's all the pics I have for now.
I'm working on a Sniper Drone team and a Devilfish at the moment.

Thanks for your time guys.

Very nicely done, but they should be in showcase. I like the piant schemes on them all. I like using the normal bases for the drones, it looks alot better.

I like the models nicely done, but I wanted to ask is that Lego road?, not saying anything about it being bad, but actually good, its cheaper and would suit my need quite well.

Very nice pictures! Well done! I also like the Kroot and what you have done with the spikes on their heads! And some nice bonding knife one firewarrior has!

Do you also have painted a tank in that scheme?

Just answering some questions.

Stella, Yes the road is lego.
PiCov, No I have not yet painted up a tank, I'm working on a Sniper Drone Team and a unit of Gue'vesa right now.
