Default Full-fledged army

YES!!! i finally have a real army. i had one troop of fire warriors and a crisis suit, but then i got the battle chest thing.

I now have 14 gun drones, 12 kroot, 26 fire warriors, and 4 crisis suits. now i just need to build and paint them...

ha ha i built my kroot and finished one crisis suit. My new crisis makes my old one look like total poo lol poo... and i made his knee bent so it looks like he just landed.

best thing is i didn't glue the weapons in, so know i can choose what i want to use per battle, and all i need to do is paint his guns!!!

Good for you! There is something wonderful and terrifying about getting a lot of models at once.

Yeah, it's terrifying when you have to paint a bunch of models. I have to paint about 3 crises, 1 broadside, 1 etheral, 6 pathfinders, 1 devilfish, 12 firewarriors,
16 kroot, 20 drones, and 1 krootox (came with the pack, but hes worthless). I really hope they change the point value on the krotoox and just give him the T5.

Don't go too crazy on models. I let some stuff pile up and I still have two devil fish and a hammer head I have to paint and i got them two years ago, along with a lot of other models.

I still have tau models from two Christmases ago, I'm just way to busy to paint my models they way I like them. I see people build armies in weeks, but if my army doesn't look great then I'm ashamed to play a game with them.

Ya i know, i got 200$ worth of high elves and painted three of them. if only i had got tau tanks instead id have a really cool army.

hmm, is the new codex just for tau? if it is i want to see if i can get my crisis in it i did a really good job on it compared to the one on my website, my first one.

heres the link: TauPheonixCadre.piczo.com

I hope to assemble an army over March/April so I can enter the board contest for 1500pt army if I think it's good enough. I have to paint about 60 infantry, 8 vehicles and about 4 Crises so I'm looking at doing a squad, a vehicle and a crisis suit a week...not really pushing it, even if I do it at a relaxed pace :P

Generally though, getting too many models at once is daunting to start painting :P

Suicidal Pheonix, I wish you the best of luck in all your games to come...
