Default tau building materials????

i play tau. i love making terrain but i can never get the symmetry of the fine curves such as good modelers on the TO. can any of you point out some halfdecent places to find things to make tau scenery/terrain or anything that would make good terrain?

I am planning on making them as well. I found a bunch of various bottles and containers that will look great once painted. Try that.

Basically anything with a "slick" shape. Bottles, caps from the airfreshners, any "smooth" plastic containers, parts from computer (old ones), yogurt packs etc. Basically stuff that you will thru out. Before throwing stuff awaythink if it is a good thing. Just be carefull not to save every thing, you can end up in a trash pile... :-\ If you see something that strikes your mind, you might want to hold on to it for a second. If it looks like trash on second though then throw it away

P.S. If you like to draw, you might want to make a sketch of the terrain that you want.
I find it helps me.

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!

Take a plastic/foam bowl, turn it over, stick the top part of a soda bottle on top (with the nozzle thingy cut off) duct tape the seams/holes, prime, and paint.

There.

Tau buildings have linear ( straight ) and curved lines.

You'll find that alot of domes and tubes will make great Tau structures. Just try to keep them as sleek and smooth as possible. ( I got alot of my ideas from both online pics and movies. I especially found the scenes on Kamino form episode two quite inspiring. ;D )

Try CD cases, ya' know, the big ones you buy from a store that hold hundreds of blank CDs. Those have a perfect cylindrical shape. I also find that used up spray primer cans make for good towers.

Note::::I'm a shas'ui now, hurray!
