Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

Post#1 » Jul 13 2017 07:20

Fifth Sphere Expansion - 8th Edition Project Log





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.

This army looks to be a strong one in the new edition. Will you be posting pictures of your models?

Thanks! I'll definitely be posting pictures. I'm currently out of the country though, so updating this thread is on hold until I get back in September.

Yeah, I've thought of that too! I've painted a WHFB Empire army already though, and Fire Warriors are much easier to paint than State Troops. So, I'm looking forward to it!
