Tau Tournament Army Painting

March 17, 2009 ·

March 17, 2009

I'm busy painting up my Tau army for this year's Carnage tournament. I've got just 2 Tau Broadsides, 2 Tau Devilfish and some Shield Drones to go and then I'm done.

I need to play a few more games with the Tau army to get them tournament ready. But they've got the mobility, they've got the firepower and they can even kick some serious bottom in close combat too. Fear my Tau! They are angry Tau.

I'm still savouring the look on Dagmire's face when the Tau Commander and his Battlesuit bodyguard charged his squad and murdered them. Hopefully the same expressions can be infliced at the Carnage tournament this year.

I'm afraid there's no time for a Forgeworld Tau Battlesuit building tutorial this time. But trust me when I say it's just like painting a Tau Battlesuit, but you have to base coat them before you glue them together. Otherwise you'll never get your brush into the nooks and crannies.

Now to knuckle down and finish those Tau Broadsides, then comes the slow and painful process of painting Tau tanks.
