Finally Posting Finished Tau Counts As Stormtroopers.

My Tau Stormtroopers are kinda finished. I realize kinda finished is like saying kinda pregnant, you either are or you are not. They need to be dipped, and I need to do the bases. Of course, since I have not done the bases of any of the minis that I have done this year, that is a narrow likelihood. Maybe some kid of New Year's resolution will be involved there. That's something I could live with. In any case, on with the pics!
These are my Pulse Carbines counts as shotguns crowd. I realized I wanted a lot of shotguns when I saw the Killzone tables that were being made for Adepticon. I thought about it, with how much terrain and movement is involved in Killzone, shotguns with Assault 2 are very good to me.
The Hellgun crowd with the Team Leader with Hellpistol and close combat accessory. I further realized that, if given the opportunity for longer range shots or Hellgun rapid fire, I wanted to be able to lay some down. Hence the Hellgunners. The Team Leader was just one of those things I wondered about, that worked out well enough to keep. I had an extra chainsword arm from my Khorne Berzerkers box, and thought, "I wonder if this will make a good model for a Killzone team Leader?" I don't do a lot of converting, but I am happy with how these came out.

Not bad considering I had not decided on a color scheme when I had sat down to paint them. Right?

Looking good. The dip should really make that khaki pop.

These are frickin fantastic, and hilarious (to me, anyway). Nice job!
