The Shiny Tau are complete. Lots of infantry and drones. This time we have stealthsuits and a Ghostkeel. Looking good!

Like the smaller stealthsuits, the Ghostkeel is also in active camo, prancing through snow. This model does have a cockpit that can open and its weapons are magnetized.

Starting off this army expansion with a few different units. A squad of Fire Warriors with a couple support turrets, Sniper drones, and some weapons.

Like last time, all the purple and blue sections of the scheme have been gone over with a gloss coat. The contrast between the shiny and matte areas helps to make the different materials pop.

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.

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!
