Commander Farsight

Posted: January 23, 2012 in Tau

Ever since I first read the Tau codex when it first came out in 2001, I took a liking to commander Farsight. I don’t know why perhaps it is because he likes bashing greenskins to a pulp, or it is because you can field battlesuits as troops .

Any way zip forward to 2005 and a new edition of  the codex is released and Farsight is now classed as an outcast from the Tau. Why no one knows has he turned over to the path of chaos ? have the necrons had a had in his fate? or is he just really pissed at the Ethereals?

In the 2005 codex was this picture which inspired me to convert my model in to something close to it.

For The Greater Good

When the Tau codex was released way back in 2005, I decided rather foolishly to start collecting them as my new army. Now time has past and I have found my Tau army that has not seen the light of day for 6 years.

They are unfortunately in a very bad way most of them have lost the little ariel that goes on the side of the helmet many have chipped paint and a few have broken off above the ankles. But i can still salvage them and with a little bit of TLC and anew paint scheme they will hope fully look like this
