Ouch; right in the incomplete collection! lol

I have 6 of the miniatures in the set, which I've bought as an undercoated lot almost 20 years ago and I've never come across the ones I'm still missing...

Yours have been painted beautifully (as always), and still in keeping with their temporal origins (i.e. slightly garishly); they're awesome.

And I've never even seen the two unreleased servitors. Shame they were never released; they look like interesting and fun minis to paint; sort of a hybrid between the Rogue Trader one and the later more static 2nd ed ones.

Great work!  :-*

The weathered yellow and red paint scheme is perfect.

Thanks all. The Mechanicus set was a long time comin'. Still have some old servitors to do then I can take a break from Mechanicus.

Meanwhile, here's the altarpiece from the Space Hulk Chapel 'Build Something' contest:



And a few more Tau oddities. These were all 3D printed on my Mars2Pro.

They are lovely.   :)  Excellent paintjobs on cool figures.

(As I have no intention of purchasing a 3D printer myself, are these available anywhere to purchase printed rather than files?)

Thanks, I'm not sure if there are licensed printers for any of these, I'd have to dig around. RNestudio is pretty well known, I'd guess they'd have someone. The others might not even be companies :)

Those Tau are real characters. I love your colour palette for them too.

Those Tau are amazing! Your painting is always awesome but added to the character in those sculpts, genius! Top notch!

blimey, yes. The best 3D prints I've bought have pretty much proved to me that quality isn't an issue now - and yours consolidate that, and then some...

but the painting ...  :-* stupendous.

The Tau in the big hat gives off a Big Trouble in Little China vibe - and that is just so cool!
As is BBTau.
