I've been taking my time on the Riptide. Having not painted Tau properly before, I've been finding it hard to get the colour scheme right,, However, I think I'm there!
I've added some weathering to all that white to break it up a bit.
One of the most notable additions is the camo scheme. This took a bit of time, and I tried a lot of variations! This is what I settled on, and i'm very happy with it.
Camo detailing on the Shield and jet pack:
Ion Cannon - i'll be adding some blue into the recesses of the barrel end and get some OSL going as well!
With the Riptide approaching completion, I've been planning my next Apocalypse Terrain project: The Hall of Heroes. I've got the base mapped out, and now i'm just waiting for some parts to arrive in the post. Building will start in a few days!
Finally I've had to grab another display cabinet! With the Tau added to my collection, I've been running out of storage space!
