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.

The next step in the Shadowsun squad. Commander Shadowsun herself and drones. I increased the brightness of the purple and put a bit more red into the trim. Since this is the reverse scheme of the rest of the army, the Broadside is going to be mainly orange with purple trim.

This is my first time painting her new scuplt. And I must say, Shadowsun has come a long way from her pewter origins. She looks so cool!

We have a small commission to change things up between doing many dozens of diamonds. Here is a WIP of Commander Shadowsun and her drone buddies. The regular scheme for this army is ochre/orange as the primary and purple as the secondary. But, as is tradition with Sahdowsun, I am doing the purple as the primary colour instead.

At first, I was going for a flatter ochre colour, but the shading lended itself to a more NMM look, so I went with it. I think I will work on the purple highlighting a bit more. I want to brighten it further so the blue shading I did on her isn’t so lost.

A nice big Riptide with bits from Forgeworld to round out the World Eaters. A few drones and a tank hatch were from the previous batch of Tau that I couldn’t find in the box.

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