More Completed Suits

Here’s my last crisis and stealth suits all painted up. Actually, not really my last as I still have 2 more in the sprues and not too sure what to do with them, as I already have more than 2000pts painted up. So until I get some funky ideas, I’ll leave them untouched.

Here are additional 3 more stealth suits to the 3 previous ones which I’ve done months ago. The color scheme seems to work for me without highlights as the urban camo already makes them look ‘busy’.

Some may argue that the fusion blaster aka melta weapon should be illuminated in blue rather then the green which I used for the stealth suits here as the green looks too ‘plasma’. However, I think for the sake of variety of colors to the model, I’d keep to green as otherwise it looks too monochrome.

The crisis suit work as my second Shas’El commander, with a converted Positional Relay from a Target-Lock (I just add minimal parts on it). As usual, all the weapons are detachable.

I’m gonna stay away from suits for a while and soon hopefully to complete all the Tau in my collection. Next up will be an ethereal with perhaps some honor guards (hopefully some conversions) along with a devilfish and another piranha.

Kroot Carnivores WIP

Here's some pic of my first kroot, still not too sure about the colors though and still trying to get a proper highlights for the skin. Any comments will be helpful!
I'm rather pleased with the plastic kit of kroot. Its one of the most well thought of and assembles rather nicely compared to a firewarrior sprue. and there's minimal flash lines on it too, makes assembly easy. Very well manufactured.
