TOEG Tau Vior'la project 2017.

Acquired a bunch of Tau in a trade and supplemented it with some Onslaught stuff, Infantry and battle rigs (as riptide and supremacy proxies). Always found the list very interesting and no one in our club really collects it as of yet. Now that I play it I believe we have everything covered (approved list wise). Plan to get this force up and running in a few weeks to get some games in before the next mini Toronto tournament

Progress Week#1
- Acquired some skimmer tanks, battle suits and Orcas (base coated in a greenish tan colour). Received my Onslaught order and based the infantry and Battle rigs. Still playing around with the painting scheme but set on the traditional Tau colour base but with bright red highlights. Going for an iron rich planet (Mars like Red) basing scheme to match the new table at our gaming meet up place.

Progress Week#2
- Current progress. Still need to spruce up the plain bases on the infantry (looking for suggestions). Also considering re-basing the tanks I got second hand. They match OK but they are directly fixed and I was liking how they look from some online sources where they are raised a bit (they are skimmers after all). Still a bunch of work to do detail wise.

Close up of the battle rigs from Onslaught. They are my proxy KX139 and XV104 large battle suit War Engines (essentially knight equivalents). Pretty good looking though they remind me a little too much of transformers, though they are growing on me.

Week #3 Goals
Waiting for the Manta and additional Orca arrive from Dave =). Have really been looking forward to getting and painting a Manta! Still have about 30 more stands of infantry to base and paint (Pathfinders, Drones, Broadsides and Firewarriors), As well as some barracudas and AX-0-1 and a bunch of scout skimmers. Hope to get them all based and under coated by the end of the week.

On a side note; if anyone has some spare FW Tau infantry I'm looking for more battlesuits, kroot and other stuff.

Week#3 Progress
So the Manta arrived and I badly under estimated the size of the thing, wow is it amazing though. Taking considerably longer to paint than anticipated. Still more detail work to do, though coming along nicely. Got some tips from Onyx's blog post.
