Slow, but still going...

Ok. I got distracted a bit. Some of you know that I'm a huge Thousand Sons' fan. It was one of my favorite armies back in the day. So when the new Horus Heresy box came out, followed closely by Wrath of Magnus I got a little side tracked. I spent a few weeks fiddling with all the new Thousand Sons toys, but in the end, I decided that finishing my Tau would come first. So, I'm back on the grind. Here is a pic of whats done so far, minus a few transfers and some light touch up.


And here is the new stuff that I'm getting started on. I hope to be done by years end or early January. Fingers crossed...

Bases and Dice

I finally found got around to addressing a basing issue I had for my Tau. I started these guys over 3 years ago, before GW did the great base swap on a bunch of models. A lot of 25mm bases went to 32mm. I know for some people this wasn't a big deal, but being a purist I wanted to make sure all my models were on the right bases. For the most part my Tau were good. But my Stealth Suits fell onto the new base sizes. I dreaded over re-basing because I had already started on them. I ran across these while checking out the guys at Tale of Painters. These things are great. You can find them at Tabletop Adapters. The only issue I had is with the really old 25mm. They require a bit of gap filling. Otherwise these work flawlessly.




Also. I got these made because.......well, I like custom dice for my armies. Enjoy.

WIP: New commander incoming...

While I love my converted commander I did a few years ago, I couldn't resist doing one of the new "Coldstar" commander configurations. Painting fire warriors can be a bit tedious and this guy breaks things up nicely.

NOVA brought me back....

Wow! Its been a little over 2 years since I stopped doing these. I kinda stopped playing and tried a few new game systems. There wasn't much to post about really. But I got a chance to play in the Narrative Event at NOVA Open this year and had a blast. I decided that the Enclave needed a little more love so here goes. I started by shoring up what I already had, and then started adding more units. I'll get a few more pictures up next week. Thanks for hanging around guys, I missed you too.....sniff, sniff...

6 down, 6 to go

So I got through 6 of the fire warriors this week. So that only leave 6 more. I think I'm gonna take a week break because I'm starting to see red, lol. I'll get to the last few guys next week.
