Greetings Dakka!

I´ve been absent for quite some time now...being mostly unproductive hobby wise...
got a new job, lost lots of time to it, had to loose the job due to health and for family...now i am reorientating...

but i want to be more productive in terms of hobby...and since my own old blog was collecting dust for quit some time now and since i am a bit shifting projects...i thought it was high time to start a new thread...

also...i started working on tau´s ...with the new start collecting boxes out there my son Oskar tempted me to start building a new tau army...as he thinks them cool looking...and i liked the challenge^^...

well...later on i will show you the first pics then^^+


until then...see you^^

cheers, vik

Holy Subbed,

The great one has returned




So will the Tau be based off your british-ish faction or something new to the steampunk frey, or will it be more 40K centric.

i bow before you my fellow dakka friends!

so much applause indeed bore any contend was shown...i am genuinely flattered

to justify your faith and your need for a true cause to stay here...first the pics

and truly welcome to my:



now on to the projects...

for the raising interest in toy soldiers and terrain i started to work on some projects with my two sons...
Felix, the older one wanted to build orky ruins...pics of these later on...as they are very WIP for now...
with my younger Oskar i started some jungle terrain pieces...swampy was my intention...



and three more pieces of future swampy jungle terrain...WIP


mostly done with washes/inks...as i like to work with the more fluid washes currently...i feel very rusty when it comes to painting standards^^

also...this is the tribe of the ghost face clan... the first platoon of a highly auxiliary coloured tau army....blue kroots...also mostly washed...





the actual tau ...when they will be started for good should look a bit like this fella here:


(ignore the hideously done base.... )

more of my works later on...so sty tuned^^

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
now on to the comments....

well...as seen above, the tau will benefit from lots of future auxiliary troops....i have lizardmen...beastmen and how knows who will follow too...i currently want to avoid humans...but we´ll see about that... and the scheme is still not nailed down...but currently i favor a drybrushed and washed look... so primed black, heavy drybrush of white to follow and then i color in some patches^^...so more 40k centric like you said in the end^^

so it is madness ye want...granted^^... well, we´ll see about sanity...but i also have some nifty scratch building planned...i probably will go down a different route where all vehicles of the tau are concerned...money is the limiting factor here...so creativity has to help me out here^^... the aim is to stay within the borders of the tau visuals but maybe create some new looks nevertheless...couriosly there arent that many cool and innovtive tau scratch builds out there...

Not where I should be

Nice Blue Kroot, and your Tau promise some nice work ahead, not sure on the basing!

Jungle is looking good for a start too.

I also look forward to some scratch built Tau tanky goodness, and interesting thoughts on walkers also, mmmmm making my juices stir. No I have enough on my plate.

Good to see you around here at any rate bud, we have missed you, I know you have been loitering with intent, but it has not been the same.

I am sorry to hear that things did not all work out as your dreams intended, but when life gives you lemons....make Lemonade. It is difficult, but we have to make the best of what we have. And you sir have some amazing talents and a crazy bunch of miscreants that like to follow your exploits, so bring on the crazy sir. Bring on the crazy.

evening lads and ladies

my sore shoulder/ arm has given me lots of trouble and lack of sleep over the c(o)urse of the past weeks...but i am a wee bit on the mend and urges have to be satisfied...so i started a wee bit of scratch building...see below...

but first comments...:

the Doc you mentioned is infamous for one thing quick solutions.... thankfully my doc (or rather docs, cause i needed more than one opninion on my case...) didn´t opt for quick, that would probably ro rip the shoulder right off^^...
ghostface is still on the march...as is a plethora of pathfinders and firewarriors...soon more onto that theme...

the base on that poor tau earlier on was for a comp i miserably failed...as alwayys... ...it was on a theme of brothers in arms...and they were all standing in a flaming backdrop...thus the red and yellow...no wonder i didn´t win that one
yeah... well the lemonade is somewhat sweet as i am able to be there for my kids when illnesses or school free times happen...so n fussing and explaining to bosses...you only cherish this one when possible...usually bosses grow an extra row of teeth whenever you ask something on the behalf of your kids...
as for the craziness....i hope i startto deliver with this update... and i see your plate...nice dishes you serve there...that DKoK Rider is awesome!

by the way... Vikor von Domm is a name destined for faame but also due to a spelling error...

sooooo... back to business...

behold...and actual update! and even concerning the aforementioned craziness ...well...scratch builds...^^

here you can see some piranha stand in/ count as....not finished yet, as i need to find away to add weaponry and two drones to the build...well...i am open for ideas, as currently i am a bit puzzled how to accomplish these^^...
note...these are mostly build from deo roll on... i have stockpiled empty used up stuff from these for quite some years now... and was always eager to see them gettting used for a nice build...so if these work, then i can have quite a flock of prinahas...soon^^...

well...pics:







well...they still need some way to add weaponry as described above and under the rule of wysiwyg they also need room for two drones...ideas would be welcome on how to add these two details...

for now...over and out...and for the greater good

cheers, vik

HAHA brilliant! i can see there going to look good, i think you should have the guns straight on the front, and the drones either cut into the bonnet area or hanging of the back. Wouldn't loose its aerodynamics then.

Hope the shoulder gets better quick Vik.

I thin with the rounded nature of your ships you should use "alien tech" and just make some "gills" in the bottom of the ships like the gills on a stingray.

No barrels need to stick out at all, it could all be internal in the ships.
