Tau : XV88 Broadside Battlesuit finished !

Today I finished the base for the XV88 Broadside Battlesuit.
And the very first Tau is finished in the new color-scheme.
Without flash
With flash
The new & old color-scheme side by side ... it works well together.
What do you think?

Painted : 249 / 250

1 miniature to go to reach the third and final goal for this year (painting 250 miniatures)
Find out in the next post what number 250 will be !

Tau XV88 Broadside Battlesuit W.I.P. 4

I finished the miniature today and I made a video about it.
I still need to make the base , but that is for tomorrow or Saturday. As I'm not sure how I want the base to look.
I'm pretty satisfied with the outcome. It looks very different as the other Tau miniatures I painted a few years back. I tried something totally different.

Tau XV88 Broadside Battlesuit W.I.P. 3

Here's an update on the progress that is quite slow at the moment.
I added the 'glow' of the weapons & other parts that glow and I highlighted the edges of the purple.
I'm very curios how the finished model will look , but at this pace it can take a while.
What do you think of it so far ?

Tau XV88 Broadside Battlesuit W.I.P. 2

Today I managed to have a little time to airbrush. 
I also tested the new Scalecolors from Scale 75.
I basecoated the figure black. Then I made the armor purple , highlighted it with white and finally sprayed the white with the second color of this color-scheme : blue.

Tau XV88 Broadside Battlesuit W.I.P.

Trough my poll (on the right side with the question : 'What would you like to see more on my blog?')
, I already received some answers and today I'm for filling one of the requests (more W.I.P.'s)

So today I started building a XV 88 Broadside Battlesuit. I have quite the stockpile here with lots of Tau. ( 4 XV88 , 3 XV8 , XV 104 , Pathfinder team and a Kroot squad , all collected several years back as GW's prices now skyrocket on the new stuff , love it butt way to pricey , I'll get them when they're at least 50% off , so that can take a while)
I've magnetized this one , so I can choose the weapons , head and arms.
The other head and arms (missile) aren't made yet.

Next step will be eighter make the alternate head and arms or start airbrushing or both.
Here are some pictures of the ones that are finished (a few years back):
These aren't magnetized.

The new Tau will get a new color-scheme. Find out witch color-scheme it will be in the next post of the XV 88 Broadside Battlesuit.

Dwarf Organ gun + Crew finished !

Today I finished the Dwarf Organ gun with crew.
'Lets blow something up !' 'Rapid fire ! ! !'
I had to use the organ gun of my wife Sofie as mine was destroyed wile stripping paint. But mine will be recycled as either scenery piece or conversion parts for my ogre kingdom army.
The crew are also of her and are modeled like she did years ago.
Here is a picture of the old paint-scheme of her :
Organ gun + crew on the right
