Default Fire Warrior Kill Team

From: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=23559.0

I am finally just about finished with this lot, after taking a pretty long break from working on them. I still have a little work to do on their optics and hair, but they are just about ready to varnish. I was experimenting with a harsher-than-normal highlighting style on this unit. I am fairly happy with the result.

The Ethereal

[hr]
The Veteran

[hr]
The Berzerker

[hr]
The Communications Specialist

[hr]
The Grenadier

[hr]
The Muscle

[hr]
The Optics Specialist

[hr]
The Sniper

[hr]
The Spy

[hr]
The Standard Bearer

[hr]
The Surveyor

[hr]
The Vanguard

[hr]
The Utility Drone (Thanks to Shas'el Tael for the design)

[hr]
The Full Team.

That is about the best I can do for pictures with my current digital camera. I may have to invest in something that is better up close. I will probably be posting background and rules for this unit at some time in the future.

Very nice. Good colour selections and painting.
But i think the Humans seem... Out of place?

And yeah, you're breaking a bit of fluff here. Ethereals "do not favor the equipment of the fire caste". It's not too important, but it's a bit wrong.

It is a bit of a compromise, really. The normal missions of this unit include espionage work, for which Gue'Vesa are very well-suited. The Ethereal is an Aun'la learning about the Fire Caste's role in the Greater Good. So he is living and working alongside them as part of his training, which includes learning about their method of waging war. (I wanted to use this as a legal Kill-Team, meaning I couldn't use the rules for an Ethereal anyway.) They have been out in the field for a long time, which is why his original robes have been reduced to their present tatters, forcing him to adopt a more practical garb.

The color scheme is directly inspired by some of the work Kalten has posted, although I still have a long way to go before I could match his skill at painting it.

Nice to see how they all turned out, every model looks like an individual just the way it should in Kill-Team.

The banner looks good too and the bases look well done.

I really like those models, cool conversions, good painting, nice scheme.
I love them all, but my favoutites are the sniper and the vanguard, his pose is simply awesome!
Only thing I must say, I&#39;d add more grenades on the Grenadier&#39;s belt.

Excellent work ;D

I second MistahG&#39;s post; the humans look out of place and the Ethereal doesn&#39;t belong there (kill-team missions are normally suiside missions). But I do like your reasoning for putting him in the team. Hell, it&#39;s kill team, you can do whatever you want.

Awesome conversion work and basing though. The colour scheme is great and the painting quality is top-notch. That&#39;s a great kill team.
