Looking great!

I think the kill-sats are from Ground Zero but what about the Tau ships?

Brigade's Indonesians. I have some heavier ships and carriers too.

Thanks!

I needed a heavier Tau ship for the eventual order of battle we hammered out, so I took a Brigade Indonesian cruiser and added bits from the Dropfleet UCM frigate sprue. Reasonably happy with it. I'm trying to evolve a hybrid aesthetic between the two ranges.

Most notably I like the downward spires from DFC, though I'm not sure about the choice of putting them on the nose.

Tau Fleet!

I think the larger one needs a little city on top of it. Maybe a press molding from some of my Spacefleet stuff.

Flagship. I see it as a lighter exploration/merchant ship that has stuff added to it as an awkward conversion to a more powerful unit.

Looks like we're going to get to do a BFG campaign, so I'm putting together a tau fleet, something like
1-2 explorers (Brigade indonesian carriers)
1-2 Custodian (Drop Fleet commander's USM cruisers)
1-3 Emissaries (DFC frigates)
3 Heroes (seems to be the go to ship, Brigade Indoensian heavy carriers)
3 Defenders.

I couldn't resist getting a bunch of other BFG compatible stuff from brigade, including their Iron Stars figures....



Not my paint job.

I'm imaginging a rouge trader campaign where you travel the stars, meet interesting spaceships, and pillage them. These would be some uncontacted human star farers or the like.

You know, sails. I love space sales. Need more. Also they have portholes!

How are the Brigade models? They've been on my "someday" list for a while now

They are good - not as detailed as BFG stuff generally, but great spaceships overall. Size wise their heavy cruisers are about 2/3 the size of a GW cruiser.

Not sure about the Iron Stars ships - Haven't gotten them yet.

Some pics for anyone not in the Taros Thread:

Here's a Dropfleet UCM cruiser converted to a Tau Battleship. It even sort of carries escorts. The detail is impressive.
