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.

So lets get started..

Before now I had only experienced 40k through a un-expected Chrismas present a good few years ago which quickly set aside and forgotten. After a friend (Karitas) got back in to it and invited me over for a game I soon found myself on Wayland choosing my new army. I first Chose Tau because I liked the models, they were different to all the one's I remember growing up and I also liked their fighting style (shooting from a long distance then getting back in the transport and clearing off). So now here I am starting a Blog, I'm not sure what it is I'm going to post on here but after seeing the C&C that Karitas has recived I felt it would be the best place to start learning the new skills I need to master and get some help and advice along the way.
