This weekend i finished my first Tau Fire Warrior.  I did him as a test to see how my selected color scheme would work and to try a couple of new techniques.  Here is a basic run down:
  1. Based model (using PVA glue, and a mixture of sand and kitty litter)
  2. Attached model to the base.
  3. Primed White
  4. Base coated. (Liche Purple for the "cloth parts", Catchatan Green for the Armored sections, and black for the gun and base.
  5. Attached right arm, backpack, and shoulder pad. (i painted these seperatly to insure better coverage.
  6. Dry-Brushed gold on the sept on the shoulder pad and the round part of the gun.
  7. Inked the model in black. This added a lot of depth.  (I made the ink myself by using 1 part cheap black paint and 5 parts water)
  8. Painted the lenses. Red, a mixture of red and silver for the highlights and a dot of pure white.
  9. Painted the edge of the base black.
Although it was a very time consuming and tedious process, I am extremely happy with the way it turned out.  Hopefully this week i will have enough time to complete the rest of the squad.
