40K – T’au Empire – Fire Cast – dudes and a suit…

Mixing things up… And more to come! I might have inadvertently slipped into full pile of shame territory… In short, trying to get a friend back into the hobby, I might have gone overboard and got an Indomitus box… He answered back in kind and got a bunch of Infinity miniatures!!

While he was peeling away the rust of his painting skills with a Mordheim elf, I took a bunch of Tau that had based a long time ago… when they came out, actually, in gold and blue. Gave them a new priming and went to town with them… Trying kinda new (for me) stuff, like some glazing and edge-highlights… Some OSL, even… that looked alright at one stage, but I covered mostly by not leaving that to the end. In short, not using drybrush at all. Not happy with the chipping, but the overall saturation that I wanted is there…

Used enamels, oils, acrylics and pigments… And it was totally unproductive way of painting things! In the same time I painted this guys I could have had painted twenty or more, I’m pretty sure… If they are going to be all the same, don’t paint four… paint a hundred!

Surprisingly my wife said they are the most boring and uninspired thing she saw in a long time, and that I better stick to Nurgle… Not that she’s wrong, but after this short time of me being back in the hobby, the pox might have gotten to her surprisingly quick!

    1. Thanks! I had tried similar on the Eldari… using metallics… Going back and forth in my mind, if I should try it on some space Marines… I’m between this teal scheme, military greens or Dark Angels (canon) for the Indomitus dudes…
