With each step, the corridor seemed to darken. The air feels damp and increasingly colder as I approach my destination.
Aun'O Bork'an Lynu Ta was looking through a viewport as I entered the room with a silent step.
You know why you are here Commander, you must have heard the rumors.Yes Aun'O, It seems ...
Enough! This meeting surpasses the security clearance of the Shas'Ar Tol And it will be kept short.
The Bork'an 63th Rapid Insertion Force has gone rogue and it is making landfall in the Farsight Enclaves as we speak.
They walked away from the Empire and managed to take some of the greatest Fio minds of the 3th Sphere with them!
Your assignment is simple Commander. Catalogue every move, every battle and maintenance report on the equipment of that cadre. We need to know how it was even possible to convince so many Tau to stray from the greater good. " Aun'O Bork'an Lynu Ta leaned forward, revealing a weary face and a cold stare"
Do not miss ... a single ... detail of this Cadre. The Fio have upgraded the security libraries on your Kor'Vesa.
It contains the Fio's listing of equipment And the Shas that were assigned to the Cadre.
Follow Windstrike's footsteps. Find out who defected and what material they had on them.
Your didactic implant has been cleared of identification protocols. You are now a ghost within the Empire.
You possess the highest security clearance available to me. Your relatives will be informed of your heroic passing in battle.
They will be treated well.
Retrieve your drone from the barracks and meet the rest of your team. Your drone will contain all the necessary details. Report every Kai'rotaa to me. .. and ONLY me.
Tau'va Commander.The way to the barracks seemed much longer then normal. The weight of the task at hand slowing me down.
As I activated the drone, I found myself more and more anxious at finding out who Commander Windstrike really was.
--OPENING UPLINK TO DATABASE - AUTHORIZATION CODE: ****** --
--AUTHORIZATION CODE ACCEPTED. ACCESS GRANTED.--
--REQUESTING SHAS'AR'TOL COMMANDER DATAFILE--
--DONE--The drone projected the image of the commander on the white wall.
My didactic implant was receiving a summary of the commander's career.Shas'O Sha'is Ka:
A charismatic but aggressive leader.
While tasked with the evacuation of research station "Knowledge of Destiny", he saw the ruthlessness of the Gue'la.
The mission was a near failure before the battle of refinery "Joe Q".
During the battle he was struck by an autocannon round, damaging his shield generator.
The shield generator's containment field malfunctioned which caused it to form a hazardous energy field around his shield.
This field was able to cut through the support pillars of the refinery And bring the complex crashing down on the Gue'la.
While the fuel supply of the Gue'la was severely hampered, he ordered a series of hit and run attacks to exhaust their remaining supply, thus permanently grounding all air support for the Gue'la.
Fio'Vre Bork'an Bentu Caor managed to stabilize this energy field and with it, created a battlesuit weapon that could rival the Gue'la power weapon.
With the recent increase in Project Logs, I felt compelled to create my own. The ARC-16 log is huge inspiration and I admit that many elements of this Log will be adapted/copied from Wolfs16. It is a magnificent thread and I hope to achieve a small amount of the same quality in tribute of that Project Log.
The above is a small piece of fluff that I have written and through the eyes of our ghost commander, I will be telling the tale of my Cadre.
My cadre is in various stages throughout the FoC and I am now dedicating myself to completing the many many projects I have laying around.
The following is a list of units and i will be updating their entry as they progress.
The names of the units will be colour-coded to indicate their progress. The names are also a link to my Photobucket account.
The directories contain more images.
Purple: Under construction, still modelling.Commander Windstrike Count-as Commander Farsight
Red: Modelling is done, model has been basecoated.
Orange: Only details remain unpainted.
This model was created with the Shas'O R'Myr model from Forgeworld. The shield arm is converted to resemble the Dawn Blade.
The head was modified with additional antenna's from a XV-25 box to create more of a roman legionnaire look.Shas'Vre Bodyguards The retinue for Windstrike is made up from XV-89 suits. The only conversions to these suits were the addition of a target lock on one arm,
and the photon grenade bit to resemble a Stimulant Injector.XV-8-2 As I am not satisfied with the look of a regular XV-8, I created the XV-8-2. By using shoulder pads from firewarriors,
I could bulk up the suit and create a bit more detail on the model.XV-88-2 The Broadsides are made from the Forgeworld XV-88-2 models. Astonishing models.
These suits are fully painted and varnished.Tigershark AX-0-1-0 My 2 Tigersharks. Originally bought as a display model but due to some damage on the model,
I received a 2th one from Forgeworld.
For the next 3 weeks, I have 4 projects scheduled and I hope to complete them all in that time.
I hope to have the motivation to work on this regularly and provide updates at least once a week.
Project 1: Assemble and paint a batch of 3 XV-81
Project 2: Convert Pathfinders from firewarriors.
Project 3: Create a new type of Hammerhead
Project 4: Assemble and paint 2 Broadside XV-88-2 team leaders.
C & C is always appreciated.
