Default D'Yanoi Air Cavalry

Well, I originally wanted to simply post a pic of my 2000 point (if I stretch the upgrades) Tau army, now that I've finished painting everything. But then, when I started taking a few "close-up" shots of stuff, I decided to take a pic of each individual unit, and show the progression of painting skill, on this, my first army. So, here goes:

Gun Drones


Shas'O


Shas'ui Crisis Suits



Mounted Fire Warriors:




Kroot:


Stealths


Mounted Fire Warrior Squad 2:




Hammerhead


Skyray


Pathfinders and Devilfish




Piranhas


And finally, the whole army together:


Hope you all enjoy!

I should have better pics of most things, if anyone wants to see any...

Wow, trulybored, that's an extremely impressive army when all the models are seen together - great job!

Wow, yeah. That's the sort of army I dream of playing against. Neither my brother or I will field a single unpainted miniature (it's an agreement we made back when we started the hobby). But it seems that anyone else I play against has the exact opposite rule; they won't put anything on the table unless it is unpainted!

Good for you, bud. It's a fabulous accomplishment, you're a credit to the hobby. ^-^

Why, thank you for the compliments . I too am quite fond of the camo scheme I picked out.

I love fielding fully painted models... I too refuse to field unpainted models, though if I'm short of points, I'll sometimes field WIP models. I think things simply look so much better painted (that, and it used to be a requirement to play in a GW in Canada).

As for a lack of highlights.. that stems mostly from the earlier models (which I used model master oil paints to paint...). My Nids are all nicely highlighted (even though it is only drybrushed and washes), and even my latest Tau are highlighted, though mine are slightly different than most...
