I love the magma. The salamander looks ace!

Thanks Gankom! next time I'll have another one with the right texture stuff ( I hope)

So another update and a milestone marker if I'm concerned :)

But here is the short version for this thread.

Finished my second unit of Stealthsuits




And this makes my milestone! A battle-ready Vanguard Detachment!



here are the spec's I want to run it with:

   - XV85 Enforcer Commander with 3 Cyclic Ion Blasters (CIBís) and a Shield Generator, protected by 2 MV4 Shield Drones
   - XV95 Ghostkeel with Fusion Collider and 2 Fusion Blasters, Target Lock and Shield Generator, aided by 2 MV5 Stealth Drones
   - 2x 3 XV25 Stealth Suits (1 Shasívre (leader) each) all bare bones with Burst Cannons

Woo they look awesome! I really have to take some time and learn to magnetize stuff. It looks so easy and helpful.

They look great Vincent. How many points have you got now?
There are 40 different shades of black, so many fortresses and ways to attack.

So why you complaining!

You just need a hand drill, some patience, maybe a bit of greenstuff and super glue, besides the right size magnets and keeping in mind the right polarity of those magnets. Once you've done a few I found it is really easy to do.. unless you want it to do on hard to reach places (like the inside of the shoulder of a Broadside...  :icon_rolleyes:)

They look great Vincent. How many points have you got now?

I can make 2000 points easy with all my T'au models, but not all are painted. This Vanguard Detachment comes at 505 points now.
Got some more Drones painted (for my Sa'cea battalion 80 points, but got more), a Fireblade 45ish, an Ethereal 50ish, Crisis Suits 300+ and a Piranha 70ish, multiple Pathfinders (10 total but special weapons not all done yet)

Work is being done on first set of 5 Fire Warriors and my Coldstar Commander
