Converting the XV 107 - R'varna Battlesuit

April 6, 2014 · 3 comments

Hello All!

Today, instead of my occasional contribution of a battle report, I will be showing off my latest model: the XV107 R'varna by Forgeworld.

With all the new monstrous creatures and Imperial Knights running amok, it is a good thing that the Tau have the Riptide to compete. The R'varna is a heavier defensive variant of the Riptide. It sacrifices mobility and versatility for increased firepower and survivability. The R'varna is an awesome model, but I wanted to make a few changes to it...

Battle Report: Tau vs. Chaos Space Marines

March 21, 2014 · 2 comments


I am finally starting to get settled into my new area and job, so this last weekend I managed to get a casual game in. My area has no FLGS so we play in our basements and hobby rooms when we can.
This was my first game against my opponent so I had no idea what to expect as far as play style or army or terrain. He usually plays at 2000 points so that is what we went with. He hadn't played Tau since 2nd edition, so we used one of the Tau Battle Missions even though it wasn't really updated for 6th edition.

Back in Business

Sorry for the delay in posting, but I've had a hectic time for the last few weeks.  My armies are covered in dust, and my enthusiasm had trailed off a bit. 

But now I'm back, and I have excellent news, for the most part. 

My idea to paint a squad of crisis suits in Seahawks colors bombed.  So I am going to stick with my white, brown, and orange scheme.  This is excellent news indeed, because as good as navy blue and lime green look on Russell Wilson, they look like shit on a crisis suit.

Back to my old business...


I keep looking at that list of stuff to do (that I mentioned a while back) and that particular list hasn't changed.  But I have added another list to it.  I still have all that new stuff still sitting there in boxes, but a friend just gave me his (rather) large and (very) unfinished Tau army in exchange for some Ork stuff I will never, ever use.  

And honestly, things got very intimidating, very quickly. I love this huge new army, but again, it's intimidating. I don't even know where to start...

So let's deal with that...
