Riptide WIP

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!

More on the Riptide and the Hall of Heroes in the next few days.

  1. That's impressive, all that white cannot have been easy. Week fine as it looks really nice, pristine even.

  2. Looking good, man! White is a really tough color to paint, and you've done a fantastic job of it!
