    For this challenge I decided to do a Tau Sniper team, set within an Urban enviroment. Having left it to the last minite I started and completed this today, though it was built over a week ago and undercoated.

    Tau Marksman

    I decided to use this month’s challenge as an opportunity to try a new approach to painting my GW Tau. Usually I use a Blue Grey base with a darker blue wash and leave it at that. This time I started with a GW Foundation paint basecoat of Deneb Stone, with ‘markings’ painted in using Charadon Granite. This then had a wash of Devlan Mud to start the shading process followed by successive glazes of Asurmen Blue to give colour.

    Title: Grimluk da Shiney ‘umie Slaya

    Description: This is a kit bash of various Ork and Space Marine bits. Wanted him to loot armour of fallen foes. I don’t like bright Orks so went for a darker green. This is the second Ork I’ve ever painted but my first one was fully encased in armour so this is my first attempt at skin which wasn’t human. Was a bit sort on time this month what with exams and overtime but managed to finish this one chap instead of the previous planned squad.
