Tau (Warhammer 40,000)

Here you will find my record of my growing Tau army.

I had two major aims in mind when I started this project:
  1. Every model would heavily feature airbrushing work,
  2. I would not use any metallic paint on any model.

Both aims were a real departure from my usual mode of work but I'm very happy with how it's turning out.

Pathfinders. Mostly actually Fire Warriors with grenades in place of backpacks and no shoulder pads. The squad leader is a tank commander model from the Devilfish kit. The binoculars seemed appropriate for the squad.
