11 weeks till throne of skulls

I have all the models I need so far I have sprayed everything  black except
3 crisis suits
10 path finders

I have also decided that I may need to paint the models then build them then do the final airbrush after that

I have done some test models and pleased  as well as painted to full models

these are the test models which lead me to decide I need to put the arms on before the final highlight
im really pleased with how the test pieces came out 
 and from the angle u can see the 2 layers they work really well :D
 these are the first 2 finished models for my tau army iv added a little detail to show the stealth suits activating as they walk thru the rubble

on the throne

my ticket for the throne of skulls has been purchased I now need a 1500pt list to take with me this event is in 3 months so in that time I need a list that works and I need to paint all the models that will go with it.

so far iv only played a few games with tau and the fire power is great  but the list needs more ap2 to counter  terminators at the minute I only have rail rifles  and fusion blasters

I could also do with another high av busting unit like 3 suits with fusion blasters

or 3 suits with plasma rifles

sad times and new stuff

well I need money for a new army so im getting rid of the existing armies iv decided that its time for a change so im trading all my armies in and starting a new collection staring with tau as my new shooting force this is mainly bcoz tau tick all the boxes for an army 

anti infantry
anti tank
anti air

im also going to be doing something different with this army as well ill be buying an trying out different lists that I write to see wat works the best

iv ideas for an infiltration devastation list :D with 18 stealth suits 540pts  3x6 units all with burst canons 72 shots deployed on the flank of an enemy army to soak up their fire with a 2+ cover save they'll not be shifted in a hurry :P

ill also be running duel riptides :D

crisis suits x3 with twin linked plasma and plasma rifles :D

9 broad sides  with different load outs
3 hammerheads

etc etc  

varying lists will be up soon
