The war machines of the Tau Empire are tall and mighty, and now painted. 3 Riptides and a Stormsurge.

I love the Stormsurge. It’s huge and is neat to paint. Despite the ridiculous amount of missiles and other weapons on it. I love the two pilots on the top too.

So that is the end of this commission. More Tau will come in the future. But for now, on to Firestorm Armada!

So many…so very many. Lots of every weapon here. From plasma rifles to flamers these battlesuits are going to have it all.

Last up are the big warmachines of the Tau Empire.

The commission is getting closer to the end. These battlesuits and Broadsides complete, with an Ethereal to boot. Next, I think I will do the weapons… so many…

Finished the second batch of Tau drones. What next, infantry, battlesuits, or tanks?

Assembled the Firestorm commission. I finished one big GW carrying case of the purple Tau, so while I do base layers on the next case, I am working on the other commissions.

In this big batch of ships, there is a new fleet of Syndicate ships. New plastic too, at least for the battleship. A bunch of Terran ships, and Infected battleships.

There are other ships. The flight tokens were drying in primer and a few other Terran ships that are in the process of stripping.

And these mark the end of the first big GW case of Tau in the commission. The other case is another full of Tau. The new commander and broadside look so cool, I love them.

Finished the MK3 Orboros battlebox. The models look pretty good, and I think the set would be fun to play with. The ones with the yellow rings, rather than red are for the duplicates that I have already painted. Better for battlefield identification!

Completed a good handful of Tau Crisis Battlesuits and a Commander Farsight. 3 of the suits are a little beefy with a 50mm base. On the back, I painted a symbol. I also did this for the Fire Warriors, but in blue on one of the shoulder pads.

As a note, I finally got in the replacement piece for the Argus in the Orboros commission> I will be finishing up that commission soon.
