Tau XV25 Stealth Suits

A small expansion to my Tau forces, in the form of a Stealth Suit team.


 However since I plan to use these predominately in other rulesets (mainly Stargrunt II), I gave the unit leader some alternative wargear, and magnetized the weapons to allow for this to work out.
Burst cannon, flamer, and meltagun for the arm, and a sensor/plasma mast
In the 40k rules, stealth suits can cloak themselves, and many (better) painters show this by painting the figure to match the background and then having them "decloak" into the standard army paint scheme, but I just went with the easiest paint job so as to get it done.

However, being a bit nuts, I went a bit overboard with basing this guy, and built a picket fence for him to be tromping over.



I got this box as a gift from my sister a couple of years ago, so it pleases me to "put them to bed" so to speak, and finish off the project.

Very cool! I dig the magnetized weapons!

Thanks! It was much easier than I thought it would be, since using a power drill on plastic is possibly a bit of overkill!

The photography is improving :) Keep it up.

I bought Stargrunt II last year after watching a Youtube review of it. I've read most of the rules, but have yet to play it. I'm really keen to give it a bash though!

Cool Stealth suits mate :)

@The One: I took these pictures at the same time as the Eldar one! Just a larger shot, which improved the focus, and a more forgiving color that deep blue...
