So these past 2 weeks were pretty good for my Tau Empire! I made some good progress on the pathfinders unit and 2 of their drones and I managed to finish my Ethereal on Hover Drone for the painting competition in our local GW store. And I also got my feet wet with my first ever 40k game!
So here he is Skardrax the Slayer ready to lead his Khorne Bloodbound on foot (real lord is on a Juggernaut) together with his faithful fleshhound.
He took quite a while to finish as I had a lot of distractions with the start of spring, mostly with stuff for the garden and other projects, but glad he is done and “mighty” proud of him.
and ofcourse the other poses:
Just a little work in progress from my 2 projects I’m currently working on:
Mighty Lord of Khorne and his fleshhound. Flesh hound is done and only some highlights still to do on the Lord. (metal, bone and black armor mostly)
Lord-Castellant and his Gryphhound. Both now for 99% basecoated and washed (only thing not painted is the hourglass). Going for a cheetah look on the body of the gryph-hound representing the speed that is the thing for the Knights of the Aurora.
It took some time and I had some distractions this past month to get this one across the finish line but all in all I really liked painting this model, so much detail and still with the few armor plates can be tied in nicely with my army theme of the Skullfiend Tribe.
So I was working this week on getting the base coats done on these for the weekly #GW52 commitment besides the Blood Warriors. Pretty happy with how far I got.
And here are my Blood Warriors from the Starter Set finished!
Here is my first finished miniature of the Khorne Bloodbound from the Starterset.
I have yet to give him a name. Some of the other characters of the Skullfiend Tribe are named in the official releases, but not him (yet).
