Fire Warriors - Blue Squad by Lauinav Fire Warriors - Blue Squad by Lauinav
Weeeee finally, something else!

This is the second of four FW squads that I have in my army.
At first I didn't think they were coming out well at all, but now that they are done (Base trims also! xD) I think they are some of my best work yet.

I really enjoyed painting them, though I do think that some of the lens' are a bit rushed, but other than that, I think the red has come out well, as has the blue.
I also really like the bases. I think they add quite a bit of character to the squad.

For anyone who is unsure, the bottom right detail shot is of an FW inspecting a mine. D:

Wow, they look eerily similar to a squad I used to have. Only mine were blue with yellow instead of red with blue.

Nah sadly not. I played a static tau list, so there wasn't any Tau tanks at all. I had a Hammerhead, but it rarely got used.
I don't play Tau anymore though. But I did enjoy painting that unit.

i like how it is called blue squad, when they are almost all red (except for the blue armor plate)

Its only called that because I haven't come up for a Tau like name for it yet.
The colours are to set the squads out from each other for Tourney games.

nicely done, though I have to ask, is the different shading of the red because of highlights or is the paint watery?
Reply
:iconlauinav:
Lauinav Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2008  Hobbyist
Nah the paint wasn't watered down or anything. It was placed on to a stay wet pallet though. So I suppose it was watered a bit.

Thats actually quite a good idea using the small arm plate as a squad identifier, might rip out my Tau again and do some tests :O

They have been sitting under my bed for maybe close to half a year now :\ I have had little time to actually bring them out to have a game with either.

Great idea none the less!
