In the course of the last month I finished two small units of Pathfinders. I'm still working on my Riptide, but I find finishing smaller minis somehow more satisfying... I painted the Pathfinders like my Fire Warriors - apart from their brown pants.

I used a new can of spray varnish (the same brand that I always use) to seal the minis. However, for some reason the semi-gloss varnish came out really glossy, so I had to tone it down with two layers of Lahmian Medium. There are still some shiny parts on the minis, but I'll just call them finished.

I've already started assembling three more Crisis Suits. They are so versatile that I really need a few more in my T'au army.

They are looking great and could easily be display models in a White Dwarf! I especially like the blue skin! Great paintjob, especially considering how fast you painted those! You really got fast!

I like the brown pants actually. Their colours make them look really distinct, very well done on the blending etc there!

Thank you. Yes, I'd like to have 20 more of them. If I remember correctly, you need 20 or more (or was it "more than 20"?) to get -1 to hit.

Very cool work! I especially like your standard bearer as you found a very nice balance between brass and verdigris!
