Yep, another look what I did post. Lots of comments been popping up to get back into Tau blogging. Sadly I can't say I'll be able to deliver. Competitive 40k gaming has burned me out and I just can't bring myself to participate in the tournaments that actually teach you the tactics, list-building and such that I'd need to help you all out.
I think any kind of Tau blogging that will happen will be showcase posts like this and perhaps some modelling. For 40k, I'm still working on super-fast ways of painting space marines, and it goes well. You just need an airbrush - it can be so easy to get results uber-fast.
These gents and lady below were painted in July and August this year. I'm honestly not entirely psyched about them. There is something off about them. I think it is the overall dark scheme of them. I must say I learned a lot about painting red with them.
I still need to develop my blending some more, and I am looking at Glaze Medium to help get smoother transitions of color. Water just isn't cutting it at this stage.
The display base here was the first I'd ever done and I had to get it done in about 4 hours - drying time included. I hope to make more in the future. It combines two of my hobby loves, making terrain and painting figs. Then once done showcase pics are so much more atmospheric.
Oh man did yall see the UK GD golden daemon winner?
