Hey Readers,
I have decided to update my Tau.
The inspiration was some models bought off the internet.
I am doing these posts as I am aiming to enter a tournament early next year.
I do like the Farsight lists but will have to see as paining is my main goal at the moment.
I like playing more that painting so am not the best of painters but thoughts and opinions are always welcome.

of course I started with the awsome Riptide....

Can't wait to see what's next.

Also - which tourny are you going in?

Ok planning the next painting project...
might start with the HQ.
Lots of options with the Farsight enclave list. I am aiming at about 1800 so I would like to keep the HQ total as close to 350 as possible.

I was thinking of:

Commander (202)
Talisman of Arthas Moloch, 2 missile pods, drone controller, shield generator, target lock and 2 Marker drones.
*Will be leading a squad of marker drones

Darkstrider (100)
*outflanking in a devilfish

and Fireblade (60)
*with home objective firewarriors.

Alternate possibilites include

Ethereal (50)
*not very enclave

Farsight (165)
*going for a grenade not bomb

Shas'O Sha'vastos (174)
*puretide chip
*must be taken with Farsight

Commander (155)
plasma rifle, ion blaster, stimulant injector, shield generator
*deep strike

Aiming for a fun, semi competitivel list .
All thoughts oppinions welcome

I like the scheme. Very Gundam/Mecha. I would love to see your other Enclave characters. I love to see a good Tau blog.

Correct. Despite countless millennia of evolution, technological advances and civilization, we're still monkeys throwing feces at things we don't like.-Zed.

I think the new crisis commander will be the next project.
Would like him to stand out as the leader. What do you think for the colour scheme.
1. Same as above.
2. Reverse the red and grey.
3. White instead of grey.
4. Something else.
Appreciate your thoughts.
