Hi all,

I have decided to not only crack on with the Novamarines, but decided they needed a suitable enemy, the Tau empire seemed a good choice, what with all the excellent proxy models about these days :)

So far I have painted up 1000pts, and had my first game, where the Tau were obliterated by the Noble Novamarines!

Anyway, the Tau will bounce back...heres some pics.

Image

Original test base. The missile drone is a spare weapons pod fron a Baku APC (onslaught miniatures)

Image

Mechanised fire warrior detachment.

Image

Closer look at the stand in Devilfish, (Baku APC, Onslaught Minis) I converted one to have a commander poking his head out for a look through his binos....

Image

Crisis Battlesuits, with attached Shas'el Commander.

Image

Piranha recon craft. (DRM Kraytonian skimmers).

Image

Tetra Recon craft (DRM Kraytonian skimmers).

Image

Recon skimmer detachment

Image

Broadside battlesuit Detachment.

Image

1000 Points done!

The plan with these is to get another 1000 points done by the end of the year, hopefully ill get more than that done, however im still chipping away at the Novamarines too.

Updates soon, thanks for looking.

Steve

Gee those OM tanks work well as Devilfish! I love the fact the minis for the Tetras and Piranhas actually have a fishy look to them as well! :D

Nice colour scheme too Yorkie ;)

The desert bases, basecoat decoart tan, then a light drybrush of Anitas sand. Both cheap craft paint.

Really nice. Red and white is a striking color scheme. Those Onslaught minis look absolutely great.

oh man, I'm 20 again and transported to my local second hand bookshop scifi section with all its cool 60s/70s style cover art

you've done a great job with these! excited to see more

I had planned on using those DRM skimmers a while back, and they look like they're a perfect fit, especially with the colour scheme you've chosen and executed so well! kudos!!
