Here I am. Out to re-paint this old battlesuit. So far I've only done the tan part of his armor. Before I had all this pretty amateur battle damage and paint chipping on this guy and it all just looked wrong for some reason. I've come a long way since I originally painted him so I am repainting certain areas. I still plan on doing some paint chipping and battle damage, just more controlled and less over the top. This model actually kind of requires it, because the Forge World Resin has lots of air bubbles in it. I need the paint chipping and such to cover that up.
I can't wait to do this for all of my Tau models. Some really need it.
I ordered myself some of these old AT-43 models that you see below. I see lots of potential on that model for bits for my District 9 suit. The basic frame and legs will be used as a chassis for the whole model. It'll look really different when done. I hope to keep ya'll updated.
