Hi guys !
After a long time lurking on this forum, and allowing my models to collect dust, I have decided to post up some progress pictures to keep me motivated!
For my Tau I felt that they didn't need flashy colors or anything metallic as this would detract from their ability to adapt and camoflauge to new environments. Also, I wanted to paint them in an urban camouflage / Sa'Cea style and I really like the way that the first test models have come out. I am taking inspiration for the bases from WWII photos of Berlin and Stalingrad, as well as other major urban battles and hopefully those will start to be good. The end goal is to have a 500 point cadre to restart and relearn the hobby, and then expand from their! So here it is! DSLR and photos galor! C&C always welcome as well as advice!
Black Retouch / Undercoat on legs
Blue Gray Heavy Drybrush
Black Wash (I have a damp paper towel that i quickly spot touch as I dislike the look of heavy wash)
Im still playing with the shoulder plates, Id like a heavier contrast but dark gray was not so, maybe just Black? Thoughts?
And the dislike pile:
After those, I have started to finish them up, and build some stealth suits
