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…

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 a Skyray Gunship/Hammerhead for the Tau, as well as a handful of weapons for Stormsurges and Riptides.

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.

A batch of infantry for the Tau Empire is complete. A spotter for sniper drones. Pathfinders galore, necessary for the Greater Good. The Cadre Fireblade is ready to lead the group.

A handful more drones have been completed and a couple tank engines too for a Hammerhead later.

There was an extension for the Orboros commission to include the new Mk3 Orboros battlebox. But, the Argus was missing a half of its face. While waiting, I will work on both, the Orboros models and this new commission. The Tau.

These Tau were a part of an army I painted for a friend way back when there was a local GW around. Now that he has expanded his army, I get to continue painting for him. They are a dark gradient of purple for the armour, blue for the weaponry, and given a smooth varnish over those parts. And a contrasting orange-red on select areas.

Finally finished these months after buying them. The pathfinders kit is infinitely better than what they used to be as metal models, good decision. The sprues are stuffed full of pieces to make both sets of Rail Rifles and Ion Rifles, and make different drones. The Recon drone is fantastic too, it fits in a Devilfish hatch hole, neat!
