Vacation Project Y’Vahra Riptide

Postby The cosmic serpent » Thu Apr 26, 2018 11:02 am

I’ve had two of these guys hanging around waiting for paint since last year after LVO. I decided to use some of my time off this week to get one ready for the table top. I have some finishing work to go but im happy with the state it's at right now. Coming soon to a table too near you!

I'll have to check those out when you bring them in I've never seen one in person. From pictures that torso looks way cooler to me then the riptide. The crisp white looks so nice on Tau armor. I like the tech base a lot.
Game Preferences:
Current Beta rules in effect
I'm happy to play lower points levels with people who are staring out or building up new forces
Fair warning my doofy daemons have 3rd party models, scratch builds, old warhammer models and I haven't moved all their bases over to the 40k ones yet! Happy to switch to either Tau or White Scars.

Very nice! I just finished one of those myself. I thought the way the torso was built was rather strange. You start with a riptide torso and cover it up completely with resin parts. It seems like it would have been more efficient to just build an entirely resin torso, but what do I know. Forgeworld works in strange ways.
