Another update on the latest on the tau I painted for my client/buddy.
Lets start with the fireblade:
Was kinda sceptical about the model at first, but now that I've seen him I think he's awesome.
I knew the single model plastic sprue were good but this one only confirms it.
The only thing I regret is to not have gotten more time to work on him.
The Darkstrider model on the other hand, isn't so bad but the fact that its finecast meant lots of cleaning had to be done beforehand for it just to look decent.
So yeah at first when I got this model I thought it was really good mold and GW had come a long way since their first failcasts.
That argument still stands but the fact that I had so much cleaning to do makes the whole experience of building the mini less enjoyable...and makes forgetting to thoroughly clean the models before spraying that much more painful. :s
Enough whining about failcast, lets show some minis!
