Tau Crisis suits:FB/MP/MT

Today is the right time to introduce you to my kamikaze tank popper squad.

They are three XV-8 guys equipped with Fusion blasters and Missile pods so they can pop things near or far from them... They never get bored.

I´ll usually field them with multitracker for everyone and a pair of shield drones stuck to the leader, which eventually will be equipped with a target lock to be able to shoot another unit.

What I expect from them: Tank popping, here, there or wherever tanks are and survive enough to repeat the process as many times as possible and when no tanks left... Heavy infantry... here we come.

The guys, as ever the leader has white plates.

Doing a can-can move to their right so you can see the guys from another perspective.

The same from the other side.

What do you think?

Great work! Solid color scheme, clean orderly painting. My only feedback are the bases. You've got such good painting skills and all you need is to go more step and make more detailed and textured bases.

What you need to a base color that contrasts with the models themselves. There are numerous tutorials from GW ad on the web about basing. This is really the only thing keeping your models from being truly awesome.

I would have to agree with the above comment. But nevertheless nice looking models.

I know the basing is my main uresolved matter, but I painted about all my taus as fast as I can to play as early as I can.

I will be adding some touches to the bases in a not so near future :D
