Hey there ATT- I've finally had the oppertunity to photograph some of the minis I've been working on, and thought I'd share them with ya. The feel I am going for is a dirtier, more gritty version of Tau than per usual- Tau who have been lying face down in the mud for a month in the thick of fighting in a backwater swamp world called Luvia- and far beyond the usual lines of supply. The whole force is such that the Cadre can be transported on a single Manta- kind of an in-the-field base of operations, where repairs are made on-the-fly, and the Earth caste engineers are free to make modifications and alterations- bypassing damaged systems and replacing them with modular upgrades. So, hopefully the army has a bit of a rag-tag appearance, but still maintains the Tau aesthetic. Ultimately, everything will be carried in robust Devilfish Transports, but they're still under construction.
Appologies to the slow-intarweb peeps.
First and Foremost- the infantry, fighting men (and women) of the Tau.

Closeups of the Ladies of Tau
Firewarrior Team 2
And Some of the Fellas of Tau
Firewarrior Team 3
Complete with Female Shas'Ui Leader- And Another Female Conversion
Then, Some Pathfinders- these don't have much in the way of conversions- mostly just some extra pouches and shoulder straps to help them out in the field.
More Pics to come- but that rounds out the Infantry for the Luvian Mechanized Cadre
