Hey guys sorry for the hiatus! I've done a bit of LoTR and finished off these Tau I'm actually really digging the scheme now seeing more than one model together. So here's some pics of another Riptide. a Broadside and a bunch of sweet sweet stealth suits.

hope you like

I was looking at the Cawdor models earlier today, wondering how to make them more visually interesting, rather than just dull with a contrast colour, and this is exactly what they need.

I love the really strong highlights on your Tau.

I am strong believer that everyone needs to find their own unique painting style, but you have so much of what I wish I could incorporate into mine.

Nerdfest is a cheater . He pays people to cos-play as space marines and then shrinks the picture down to look like a 28mm heroic figure. Don’t fall for it.

Ha! if I could shrink them, i'd shrink them more so they weren't Primaris * Bleeeugh....vomit*

But thanks guys, I wouldn't say they're that good, but they are certainly worthy of a update especially since I wanted to do them in a week and have them back to him :-) if you want i'll show you the next project.

Yep a week don't hate me, there's thousands better and faster than me!

Now this is what i'm working on, a bloke who may (or may not) have done something wrong i'm painting Magnus for the same guy I did Mortarion for so I want to do a pretty good job on him, originally I started by painting the front face of the wings with blues and painted the feathers like lightning on power swords but I couldn't get it how I was happy with it so I completely re painted them in yellows as I felt more comfortable with how I could do it.

I'll be finishing the wings up first and then moving on to the next bit.

hope you like him so far!

Whoah!! What a cool model to paint! MAGNUS IS FINISHED and I bloody enjoyed painting the big guy, so many options to add colour where it shouldn't be and just go a little crazy with free will I wanted to begin to push myself again as I felt a little stagnant but I'm really pleased with how he turned out and hope the guy I painted him for likes him as much as I do!

I could go on for paragraphs about blending and techniques/colours etc but I won't, I just want you to have a look and hopefully he's got enough character and looks like you'd imagine him to be

That's nothing sort of magnificent Nerdy. The color of the wings are such a compliment to the red skin that both veritably glow in comparison to one another.

As well as being a magnificent paintjob, the deceptive simplicity of the base really sells the piece as a whole.

Lovely. The highlight for me is that you've got the skin convincingly red, while having it still look like skin.

That purpley red skin is great. Also I didn’t realize the kit could be done without the chest armor.

scrolling quick through the pics he looked really top heavy until I realized that it was two seperate pics (a top and then a bottom with two different angles)

Nice work as always, but this is really good work indeed! You can see how he is turning into one of Tzeentch's greater daemons as he has the elements of it, but still is a Prince/Primarch
