Tau Ethereal - My First Tau

Hi all

Today I bring a few pictures of a Tau Ethereal that I painted up. Normally when I paint something that isn't for me it, its for Zebulon. This time however it was for my flatmate's birthday (Its not till July but I probably won't see him for a while). He doesn't play Warhammer anymore and hasn't for a long time however I know he used to play with the Tau. So when I saw this now oop metal Tau Ethereal I decided it would be a fitting birthday present.

With that here's the first Tau model I've ever painted.

While I was painting this I tried to keep the number of colours to as few as possible. I think the cream and re-brown work really well together and I'm very happy with how its turned out overall. I certainly think it ranks up there with some of my best models. I'm very happy with how the cream turned out as it can be tricky to get it right. I think using my wet palette helped a lot with how it turned out as it allowed me to blend the colours together much easier. It also helped me with blending the cloak colour as well.

Well that's it for this post. As always thanks for taking the time to have a look and please feel free to leave any comments, be they good or bad or somewhere in between.

Scenery: Imperial Sector Buildings WIP

Hi all

Its been a while since anything new was posted on SotA which I think has been due to both myself and Zebulon having a little break from doing anything major. I've been tinkering with a few bits and pieces for the last few weeks and now find myself ready to get back into the swing of things.

So first up are the buildings from the Imperial Sector box. I was lucky enough to find this box in my local store at the old price of about £52 rather than the new £70 price. I hadn't intended to buy it but I knew I'd regret not buying it. It took me a couple of weeks to assemble the buildings which was slow by my standards (due to the decreased nature of hobby activities).

So lets get on with the pictures.

Start Collecting Skitarii Review

Hey all, today I'm giving my little review on the new Start Collecting Skitarii box. Firstly for a GW price of  £50 ($85) these are exceptional value, in this box set the Dunewalker is £40, Rangers/Vanguard £23.50 and the Dominus £22. Even at £50, that's a £35.50 saving. If you're like me and bought it from an online store ( Goblin Gaming for me, 20% discount and £3.90 postage, just under 50% off standalone retail price)

Drakwald Carnalites Minotaur WIP

Hey all.l,

I'm back today with the first WIP for my Carnalites. As somewhat of a tester for the team I picked the Minotaur as he has both armour and skin/fur that can be translated across the team.
