Painting Progress - XV95 Ghostkeel

Carrying on from the last post, I have moved over to painting the Ghostkeel for a little bit of a change.

The main colour for my Tau army is GW's own Sotek Green. I wanted something a little less vibrant for my stealth-related suits so after some deliberation I took the green down a step to Stegadon Scale Green for the Ghostkeel (and the actual stealth suits which are not part of my DT force). This has given the suits a slightly more stealthy green colour while still tying in with the rest of the Tau.

This will likely be the format for my posts for the next few weeks as I get my Tau painted up for Double Trouble. Next post will hopefully be the finished Ghostkeel!

Getting Things Done

I'm back!

I haven't posted anything ages and the reason is simple. I have a deadline. With just under 4 weeks to go until Double Trouble, I have a large amount of painting to do. I could take Skitarii again as they are 3 colours and based (even if they are not finished yet) but I really want to give my Tau a run out in a smaller points tournament. So that's what I'm doing. Unfortunately that means getting quite a few models painted quite soon but I painted most of my Skitarii in under 2 weeks so it's doable.

Here's a little photo of one of my Devilfish, just about at the minimum standard for the tournament. I'll hopefully have another painting update soon for you all.
