Hi All,

I have been converted to the greater good and have sorted out my list to 1500pts.

The concept behind the army is a Third Sphere army surging outwards recapturing the worlds and outposts that were lost during the Damocles Crusade. This will be lead by Commander Shadowstorm (One of Shadowsun's lost sisters) and as a newly replenished army will have all the neat toys plus Auxiliaries.
I really like the colour scheme for Shadowsun so the entire army will be done as such.

Here is the first finished tester that I am finally happy with.
I purchased a box of GW jungle plants back when the Lustria campaign was on, so now is a good opportunity to use them.

LOL

Took me a while... I wonder if Tau ever fielded IG Sentinels? :/

I like the model, makes me want to start a Tau force, which is bad... I don't have any money sad.gif

Almost finished my first test Kroot. Good fun to paint.
Even sculpted my first feather.
He still has a few bits i need to finish up - Base, woodgrain on the gunstock, etc

I am not happy with the 'gore/sand' on the blades, probably scrape it off and use greenstuff instead

Looking good Dave, looking good smile.gif
White's a hard colour to paint, so will always earn a few extra votes. I actually really like the kroot you've done up, I think it's far superior to any model you have in your eldar so far, it's nice to see you raising the bar smile.gif!

And how long have you felt passion for half naked bird men, dare I ask?! I bet it's the lack of feathers that gets you going.. I knew it from the moment I saw you lustfully staring into my freezer the other week at the frozen chicken in there.

What's your target unveiling tournament?

you, sir are a skilled painted, personaly i'm not a big fan of white as it reminds me of stormtroopers (who can't hit the bare side of a barn from 10 paces) but it still has it's merits

As much as I think you have way too much time on your hands mate...shiny plastic plant bases are going to be a biatch to transport and he still looks like he's hunting pigs.

Charlie - Shas'O Heke is GOLD...even if "DOCTOR ROPATA" made me snort solo up my nose (not something to try at home kids). biggrin.gif
