Welcome to my 8th Edition project log! Before I begin, let me explain a little about myself. About ten years ago, I painted a small Tau army in a terrible, lumpy red and white paint scheme... this was before that scheme became the "box art" for the Tau Empire, so I was suprised to see it years later. Anyway, I stripped the models out of sheer embarrasment, and endured the shame of playing with a base-coated army for almost two years. Following that I spent some time playing Age of Sigmar, before realizing that playing competitive Tau was my true calling. As such, I have resolved to repaint my old Tau army the way I know Tau to be- in the old, classic, ochre colors of the Tau Sept!
As a painter I have many years of experience, but my skills are amateur at best. This project log will not be a showcase of fabulous models, but rather models painted to a simple and decent level.
