Hi all. I've been lurking for a while, picking up the tone of the boards and generally enjoying the variety of Tau-related insights and knowledge available.
I thought you might be interested in some pics of my Tau Apocalypse army (currently incomplete - I've got Piranhas and a Rapid Insertion Force to assemble yet!) In terms of colour scheme, I wanted a palette that was both quick to paint and extensible across the full spectrum of units. As you can see, I've gone for green as the primary colour - tones of Catachan Green and Camo Green; flat colour on the smaller models and a Disruptive Pattern Material for vehicles. Highlights were picked out with white and orange, which helps unify all the models from a distance. For O'Shaserra I inverted the scheme, so she's primarily orange with green detail.
The 'titan' is a slightly-modded Kodiak Heavy Gear resin kit (http://www.dp9.com/fusion/KitPages/kodiak.htm
.) I can't in any way claim it as a conversion - basically, all I contributed was the addition of an Ion Cannon and Railgun to each arm, a vehicle comms antenna and sensor spines. I've deployed the thing in battle and it gives a pretty good account of itself. If anyone wants to see the data sheet, let me know and I'll post it. (I'm aware that the whole concept of Tau Titans is highly contentious but, bottom line is, it's only a game and I *really* wanted one on the table
) I've got to say, the quality of the cast was excellent - as good as anything from Forgeworld.
Would love to hear any opinions or comments you have...
