Default Yaifrog's Tau Army : The Ghosts (WARNING: lots of pics!) (Updated)

Hi all,

I've been working on these since I started the hobby (about 4-5 years ago). My original colourscheme was full black with a few red dots, then I realised how blatantly unimaginative that was, so I looked on the back of the old Fire Warrior box and stole one of the 'Eavy Metal team's colourschemes :P Anyway, I finally got around to taking some pictures of the army, so, without further ado, here they are...

PS: Sorry about the poor quality of most of the pictures...

Here are a few pictures of my Fire Warriors:











Here's my mildy converted Shas'ui.





Moving on to a few pictures of the Kroot:







Here's my newest unit, the Vespid:







Here are my crisis suits:







My favourite unit, the sniper drones:







Some gun drones, nothing special:



My Kelleran auxiliaries:





My beautiful stealthies ;D:





And of course, the vehicles!















Overveiw shots:











Thanks for looking!

EDIT: I've finished a few more units...

My finished Commander, in all his SMurf-killing glory!











The Gue'Vesa






The IonHead


New pictures of old models




















Again, sorry about the poor pic quality. I need a new camera :P

I like that your color scheme is coherent without any 'crazy out-there random' colors, the vespids and the kroot fit in nicely. I also like your scout tetras and the blur glowy effect on your piranha's fusion gun...

Nice color scheme its simple and everything meshes well (is your cadre a hybrid force ?)
I like how your aux units while are different colors compliment your army very well

Thanks for the fedback, guys. I made the auxiliaries myself out of some hormogaunt arms, burst cannons and greenstuff, by the way.
My army incorporates alien auxiliaries more than most other armies, and I thought that just the Kroot, Vespids and gue'vesa weren't really enough to support this fluff, so I decided to make the Kellerans. In the future, I'll also be adding some Gue'vesa and an XV81 from forge world, as well as some more auxiliaries modelled out of Saurus warriors.

Kudos on actually finishing an army, and managing to make it look nice at the same time.

I giggled a little when I saw the 'forest' piece made out of aquarium plants. It's a cute idea though, as flexible trees are better than stiffies.
