The Broadside and accompanying drones are now done. His primary weapons are magnetized and painted.

I thought I did this scheme in a clever way. The ochre colour I have is a little too yellow for me and all my oranges are too orange. I ended up painting it all in the ochre colour and then glazing the whole area in transparent orange. That way, the orange warms up the ochre to the tone I was looking for. The highlights I kept as bright yellow to hopefully convey the hard material of the battlesuit.

The shield drones also follow a similar scheme. I also gave their midsection a bit of a glow as if they are radiating their shield auras.

I’ve got most of the way on the Broadside and drones. As mentioned before, the scheme is going to be the reverse scheme to Commander Shadowsun. Where she was painted mostly purple with orange as the secondary colour, the Broadside is painted orange with purple as the secondary.

When I’m done the rear dial and the shield drones, I do want to add a bit of blue glow effects around their pale blue parts.

This has been sitting on the back burner for a bit while I was focusing on the Harlequins, but I finally did get around to magnetizing it. Just the main armaments are have magnets so it can switch between the railgun and heavy missile system.

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.

Well, after that little dry spell of updates… they are back! I wasn’t doing nothing though. Working on a separate Guard commission and Broadsides while waiting for the Manta to come back.

There’s 84 in this box, and about 60 more to paint. Not including tanks and things that are not the regular Guardsman.

Working on 12 Broadsides. Just need bases.

And the best part… Julio is now on the underside of the Manta. He likes the nebula thing going on on the front, and is continuing it here. Instead of a dragon, he is putting in skulls!

I have finally finished cleaning all the pieces of the Manta, guts and all. I finished 3 more Broadsides which means, all the Broadsides that were given to me built, are now done 🙂

Finished 2 more broadsides and a Hammerhead hull. I also, cleaned all of the hull pieces of the Manta. I still have bags of the little things like the insides, the sitting firewarriors, and the weapons and such.

Well, I’m back from a totally awesome 2 week vacation in the States. Now, it’s back to the old grind. I only managed to do a Broadside and a Hammerhead today, but that’s only because I was cleaning some pieces of the Manta… and building the Steam Tank I got 😛 But, most of the pieces are flash and stub free now. Just gotta wash them.
