Main torso section completed this week, again 3 coats of the main colour…going to need some more supplies lol. Really getting a feel of the height of this model…its truly huge, next week if I remember I will post a pic of a normal Tau Fire Warrior next to this.
I have added these images to the 2014 WIP section.

  1. Looks really good already. The edge highlighting works well and I like the effect you achieved on the gem in the centre. The combination of gold yellow and red is always a winner. I would highlight red with yellow to avoid getting into the pink territory, but that’s a matter of personal taste and obviously depends on what colour scheme you are going for. How big is the battle suit compared to a normal trooper?

    • Thanks for your comment, that in fact is the first gem I have ever tried lol, it cane out ok. He must be a good 7-8 times bigger than a normal guy, I will post a picture next week for comparision. Cheers
