Hobby: Murphy's Law

I have been happy that everything has been going great with getting the Tau built and painted.  My first Riptide is coming along well. As are my Kroot.


I lucked out and bought some kroot off of Dameon Green.  Some pre-painted.  Some needing TLC. Some posed pretty awesomely with dead IG.  I also bought some Crisis suits off of him.  I started building them and then saw this video.  I like the idea of doing a red camo and this was pretty close.  So I started on the Crisis suits.  I got to the part when I was going to spray the Ghost Tint.  I opened the bottle of Fresh Blood Ghost Tint and said, "That's purple."  I opened magenta and it was magenta.  I emailed their customer support asking if I can exchange my mislabeled one for an actual one.  It puts me a little behind.  

The idea is to have both Riptides built by next weekend.  This way I can buy the other stuff I need.  Kind of move the stuff off of the assembly line and into the paint shop when the new models come in.  I figure I can be doing most of the building done and paint in between.  It will also let me get some playtesting in.

I sort of opened my big mouth and challenged a guy at the shop.  He is one of our better players.  He wants to prove that an assault army can beat Tau.  I said not only won't he beat me but he won't get line breaker.  Stupid move on my part but the game will be fun.

    1. Actually, I have to prevent him from getting it. I should have enough in his deployment zone to keep him busy. :)

  2. I think my Psychic Choir list would stand a pretty good chance of beating a lot of the Tau lists out there, and it has a pretty hefty assault element.

    1. Yeah...they will be a tough match up. I will need to get a game in against you just in case I play that one guy with Nids at NOVA. :)
