Update:

Had a very productive evening.

Image


Crisis Suits are Assembled, Magnetized, and Primed.
Crisis Suit Gear is fully magnetized.
Ethereal is Assembled and Primed.
All 8 Drones are Assembled, Primed, and Basecoated.

Next step is to touch-up the drones and give them a wash before starting highlights.

All with over a month left till my stated deadline... I"m starting to think my goal wasn't ambitious enough. That's ok though, if I meet my goal too soon, I'll just set another one. That's the whole point, right? :)

This one was freehand but I have been known to use stencils from Mask-Fx before - I had run out with this model but have now managed to re-stock.

Well, I'm happy to say that I made my first deadline!

Image

There's 16 Fire Warriors and 6 Gun Drones- and 2 bonus Gun Drones too!

My next deadline is going to be simpler- I'm out of town for the last two weeks of November so I'll get much less done this month.

Deadline 2: December 2, 2017

4x Fire Warriors
2x Fire Warrior Shas'ui
4x Gun Drones
4x Shield Drones





You probably noticed that, in my pictures, the Fire Sept symbol on my Fire Warriors' shoulder pads is missing. For now I just don't trust my skills as a painter enough; I'll leave them blank until I have a good plan for painting those difficult white-on-black patterns.

It's really heartening to see everyone's progress! :D
Keep up the great work guys!

This week I struggled a bit with my Breacher squad, but I reckon I should get to the finish line on time...

Also continued the Barracuda, put in a few more details:

I had an event yesterday so I didn't get much painting done. I'm taking a small break from doing any more painting this weekend. I put some Balthazar gold on the gun and made the stim pack look cool.

I started a new deadline, so I'm building, priming, and basecoating- nothing to report yet as far as finished models, but stay tuned!

@arka, your firewalkers look great!
@cmdrcash good job for making the deadline
@elmo, the paint job is awesome but my untrained eyes can't tell what was changed from riptides first picture and it's last one.

Awesome work guys! I’m almost finished painting my cadre myself, only the riptide, six drones and five breachers left! Sorry for the small pictures, I was trying to fit the whole army in there. If anyone wants to see closer up let me know.

Most of these were painted after a long slump that ended near the end of June, 2017. I’m not the worlds greatest painter but I do ok. It’s awesome to see other people getting their armies painted, imo anyone that has a fully painted army (or is working on it) deserves massive props.

So far only my earlier Eldar wraith models have met the deadline, Tau stuff is due end of this month.

My Eldar models were in time to get into a simple display (to be the incursion force vs my Tau) at our FLGS though, so I'm pretty satisfied :) :

The colour scheme looks great in the group shot. Get those last models painted and posted :)

I’ll join this! Back when 8th was announced I was extremely motivated to get all my Tau painted before release. Sadly I fell short. 1 broadside, a few stealth suits, Fireblade, Ethreal and a handful of drones I think is all there was. I’m now getting back on the wagon and want everything painted by the time our codex drops. I’ve since bought some new stuff and have more to paint.

I just finished my first Coldstar and have a 2nd base coated. My 2nd Stormsurge is also base coated but next on my list is Commander Farsight. Started him tonight and plan on him being finished by Monday, but I’m hoping sooner.

Here are some pics of the Coldstar Commander Snowhawk, and Commander Farsight(WIP)

Also everything looks great!!! The camo Riptide is real nice, as is the Wraithknight( I think) and the Eldar flyer. But the black Devilfish and fireblade are some of my favorites.

Beautiful Stealth Suits, Haechi! I love the highlighting! I'm not confident enough to do a black color scheme like that.

El'mo, I saw that 'Cuda earlier on Facebook today! I thought I recognized your camo pattern! Looks awesome so far!

I've been busy working on my goal as well.

Image

The Drones have been Shaded and given a broad highlight.
The Ethereal has been shaded, and Purple and Orange sections have been given a broad highlight.
The Crisis Suits have been shaded, and Orange sections have been given a broad highlight.

Next step: The Flesh on the Ethereal, and Purple sections on the Crisis.
