Default Old Aun model done for my army!

Finished my Aun after working on him for about 2 weeks off and on. He's not gonna be used much, so he's mostly a display model. Photobucket's giving me issues this morning and I don't have time to play with it, so here's a quick attachment until I can upload more tonite.

C+C please!

It's not an Ork banner, he holds a staff or something.
The Ork banner is on the ruin beside the Aun.

Nice painting, and posing. Plus, its using the gorgeous old Aun, not the sick new ones, therefore:

10/10!

Nice, I really like the old Aun too, a lot better than the newer ones. The painting's great, and the base is fantastic!

Cheers, spacmarine2000

Ok, so I managed to get my better pics uploaded.

Thanks for the compliments!

As you can see now, the Ork banna is on the Imperial ruins (so, who do I fight on a regular basis?)

He is holding a staff, basically it's just a long piece of rod pinned into the bottom of the existing badges of office. Kinda based off the Aun on pg. 5 of the new 'dex. I've been re-thinking that staff though, if I should leave it the dark black/ Dark Angels Green colour, or if I should re-paint it to be Liche Purple for the sept (Dal'Yth) and leave the Snot Green part. I was originally thinking gold, but I'm not partial to metallics on Tau, it just doesn't look right, even on Ethereals.

And I decided that if I was gonna do an Ethereal, it was going to be this one. I kinda wanted the Special Edition one from the first release (with his arms crossed) but they are $$$ on Ebay, and my bro wouldn't part with his. So I got this guy for a steal of USD$9 from Ebay.

Anyways, on to the pics!

Stippling of Blood Red/Black mix, then Blood Red over it.
