Default We bring the Big Guns! (Tau Broadsides)

Finally finished the XV88's for my tau. I must say, pride of the army at the moment, they can do no wrong, and never even get scratched.

I'm not as happy as I would like with the pose of one (not standing on HB one) and I am looking at changing it, but it will be difficult to do safely.





The one standing on the Heavy Bolter, I can imagine him saying: "You call that (HB) a heavy weapon? These are heavy weapons!"

Sorry if the pics aren't great, only 3MP res from my N80.

Very nice indeed, although the pic looks blurry. Love the glows in particular.

They are. I haven't shown the shield drones, they should follow tonight.

Yeah, I really need to work on the picture taking.

Brilliant work Rafe!

For photos though, try setting the camera down on the table or wherever your models are so you can take better pictures. Likewise, if your Camera has a Macro function that often helps.

Yeah the pictures are a little blurry but either way, they're great and I think the bases are superb.

Did you get those directly from Forge World? I want to get some XV88s, since I think they look so much better than the GW model, but I can't justify spending more than $40 each at the moment.

Is there a cheaper place to get Forge World stuff?

I did buy them from Forgeworld. Sadly, there is no place I know of to get cheaper FW, other than ebay.

However, I know its hard to justify it, but if you have the money, and are confident doing so, I highly recommend buying Forgeworld Battlesuits. They are not badly posed, like the GW ones, they can be posed in tons of ways so easily (I have a kneeling Deathrain, for example) and are much nicer looking.

Look here for some advice.
