The SciFi Bug has bit again and amongst the other stuff I have been doing I have taken the plunge and am starting my first 40k army for many years: Tau
I had played 40k since 2nd edition and it was my game of choice for about 10-12 years until I became a bit "over" it with 5th edition and moved to more Historical Games
I have always loved the freedom to convert models however and while Historical games do allow this the scope is limited, whereas with 40k the only lit is my imagination (and time and money!)
There is a tournament coming up at the end of October: Conquest hosted by Comics Compulsion and I figured I would enter. Sadly I don't have an army so I need something I will like and can build and paint in about 5 weeks! Enter: Tau Farsight Enclave
The Farsight Enclave is a supplemental list to the Tau Empire army and crucially allows Crisis Battlesuit Teams as Troops Choices. I am a massive Armoured Core/ Mecha fan so this is right up my alley...I have also just finished Mass Effect 3 on Xbox and have always been a fan of the Geth.
So: Drone/ AI/ Memory Engram piloted battle suits (think Ghost in the Machine) will be the theme for my Hunter Cadre
Here is the first models;
Still thinking on a colour scheme but it will be battle damaged is my thoughts so far.
