Fire Prism

This is one of my existing model which I've been using the Grav Tank with a falcon turret all this while and has only recently completed the prism turret shown here. As I will be using more Fire Prism in future games, I've just decided to complete the model last night. Comments are welcomed and thanks for viewing!

Tau Terrain Template

I'm experimenting with 'wallpaper' terrain, kinda like a fold out graphic terrain. Something that one can print, cut out and paste on some hardboards for instant terrain making, beats using a bottle for a tower, eh? I'd recommend a print scale to fit on A3 size paper for this one.

Here is a first attempt at a Tau theme terrain. Its a simple and symetrical shape and design, done with photoshop and CAD. I'll be attempting on more complicated design and texture base.

Comments are welcome!

Tau Architecture?

Just to share what I’ve produce at work, which somewhat relates to our lovely hobby…

The mind works in associative manner. Over time, what we produce very much influence our perception, pre-conceived ideas in a rather unconscious way, that one can see the pattern of thinking just by looking at the results.

I can’t help but looking over some of the architectural sketches and works I’ve produced at my work place at the same time I’ve started painting my Tau Army. I’ve notice a rather strong influence in its elements and my strokes. Curved edges, streamlined and sci-fi mechanical aesthetic of its appearance comes into place.

This is my sketch of a commercial centre somewhere in the middle east, part of a major development here. At first glance, I would think of it as some sort of a military Tau bunker…

The client is somewhat agreeable to the proposal, and I’m in the process of developing a physical model for in the scale of 1:500. I’m excited to begin development soon. However, I’d imagine final result would be more contemporary and responsive to its context rather than the plastic and white feel of a Tau terrain. Nonetheless, if I were to place my minis next to this, it will still somehow and can’t help but to blend together!
