FUSE - FUSE's Farsight Faction

Post by BloodFUSE » Tue Feb 19, 2013 1:31 pm

I've been toying with the idea of doing a tau force for a few years ever since I was given a copy of the codex by a friend. I really dig the art for Commander O'Shovah (Farsight) and I also really like his fluff. Also, I'm really not a fan of the tau alien auxiliary forces. I just don't find the models very appealing, so Farsight's force restrictions didn't really bother me much. All that being said, here's the list:

Update for the New Codex!!!!!
I am still running farsight, he seems to have lost all his disadvantages at this point, plus this book is so shooty I had to pack as much as I could into the list, thus the dropped pirahnas for the riptide and longstirke.

February commitment:

6x XV25 stealth suits with their shield drone.

Below is the pic of my squad. I only have 3 models, the other three plus the drone pack have been ordered and are on the way. I'll throw an image of the boxes on here once they arrive.

I've hit a speed bump. My FLGS didn't get my box of stealth suits and the shield drone pack on their 40k order this week. Fortunately I had a free expedited shipping note on my GW account. Should have them Monday. Behind the 8-Ball in my first month :/

First fruits. I have completed the first three stealthsuits to 3 color. I'm doing the vior'la scheme as that is the world Farsight came from. The other three should be in Monday and ill post the whole unit once completed. Any constructive comments and painting tips welcome.

Well when it rains it pours. I dropped one of the upper arm shield bits while assembling my second 3 stealth suits. I've spent about 25 minutes searching and I can't find it. Ugh.

Down to the wire is an understatement, but here they are.
