Tau Commission Part 2

Here is the second draft of the painting comission

Commander Shadowsun, some pathfinders, some kroot hounds and krootox.
It took me some time to get these finished...and the fact that all these models were finecast had something to do with it.

Assembling them was no joy ride:
removing insane amounts of flash and mold lines, straightning bent stuff in hot water then setting them in cold, filling holes(lots of them and some of them not so small) with green stuff .

Having said that I do like to complain and finecast does seem to be a step in the right direction.

I think shadowsun's model is a testament to that awesome level of detail resin can achieve. And lets face it: Since when is a light and easy to work with material a bad thing?

As for the kroot the change of color was a client request. They look purple here but they are in fact a dark red.
I'm sad I couldn't get more/better pics before the models were sent off, but hey, its better then nothing. Part 3 coming soon...well one day I hope.

Anyways hope you enjoyed,
and happy wargaming!


  1. It's nice to see Shadowsun painted a different colour to white.

    1. Indeed, I had to look up a bunch of different color schemes for her to come up with this one...turns out there isn't that many out there.
      Thank you for your comment!
