Fall in

Ok so what have I got. I started with Standard battleforce then added an additional XV8 and an XV8 Commander plus a Kroot Shaper as the additional save it give the guys is better than none.
I have started the painting and decided on rough colour schemes and managed to get 8 Fireworriors painted. the colours as you can see are a dark grey base with light grey armor and orange acents. i like the light grey / dark grey contrast and the way the orange pops from the models but still feel they are missing something. Im not sure about what details I have to add and where so if you have any suggestions that would be great.


  1. Hey hey hey.

    They look pretty good on (digital) film.

    I'd be tempted to wash them with a darker colour to pick out the detail some more, then highlight armour edges with first the original colour then a lightened version.

    also, slap some paint on the bases too, it'll help them to feel finished.

    Nice to see you on here. :)

  2. I like the color scheme; the grays are nice and understated, which makes the orange details really "pop". Very clean paint job, too. I look forward to seeing more!

  3. always nice to see more fire warriors. great color scheme!.
    hope to see more soon =)

  4. Hey Welcome to the cause! Nice looking Tau you've got there. Keep it up.
    Thanks also for joining my blog. As always I love feedback and sometimes a good call-out if I'm full of it. Hope to see more of your army.
