Finishing off this commission with Commander Shadowsun and a Cadre Fireblade.

Shadowsun follows the army colour scheme, activating her camouflage. The Fireblade looks very leader-like.

These are the rest of the drones in the commission. A couple drones for the Ghostkeel, a couple shield drones for Commander Shadowsun, and a bunch of other mostly shield drones. All that’s left is Commander Shadowsun and a Fireblade.

Brand new to me, Fire Warrior Breachers. A 9-man unit and a couple Hammerhead turrets. I’m almost done a trio of Rail Rifle Pathfinders, then I might do the Fireblade or Commander Shadowsun.

The first two Stealthsuits complete. The camo is white, grey, and blue for the snow. The actual armour is a purple/grey scheme with some bits picked out in blue or red for the reference to the og shiny armour colours. I’d like to think this alternate armour is like a special forces colour scheme.

Also, as per the natural order, I have both the active camo and armour colours showing on the model. Like they’re in the middle of turn their stealth on.

Got these done in time for a tournament later this month. The conversions look great and the scheme is very striking against a snow base.

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…
