Tau Painting Day 3

March 23, 2009 ·

March 23, 2009

The Tau painting mission continues. Today I've been painting the second Tau devilfish. I failed to do any painting this morning as I woke up late. Got home, cooked dinner and started painting at 7pm. Painted through till 10pm before my eyes couldn't take the strain anymore.

I managed to do all the green highlights on the second Tau Devilfish and made a start on tidying them up. Then it's on to the brown highlights. Tidy those up, then I can start on the engine pods and smart missile sponsons for both tanks. Then it's the dreaded orange stripes and I'm done!

3 of 14 hours used. 11 hours remaining.
The last tank took 6 hours of my time.
This is going to be close...

You have a really sweet paint scheme! The colors are unique and stylish, and you have a very crisp and clean style that does the Tau Empire proud.

Hey Adam just came across your blog here and I have to say kudos for the determination! It's been a long time since I've seen someone keep a blog on such a tight Painting Deadline. So I want to wish you good luck on finishing this awesome looking army in time for your Tournament.

Cheers CJ

But Keep up the good work, I'm moustly looking at this blog for the painting and tactica as I'm playing a Saim Hann army it's always good to scout other fast army tactics. You never know when they come in handy
