Building two Tau Riptides - Now with more poseability
Since I had two, I decided to do two different poses. One of them is more aggressive, and one is a more defensive pose. I'm a bit concerned the defensive one has a bit of a"talk to the hand" look, but I'm still happy with it and going to leave it as is.
I would suggest to anyone building this model ignore the GW instructions. They tell you to build a leg as a whole piece and then stick it into the crotch sub assembly as well as the other leg. You can't do any posing. I suggest building the model into sub assemblies before picking your pose. Unless you want the GW standard pose you have to build this thing in pieces.
I still need to build the rest of the army and get some play testing in before I have to pick a scheme though I am leaning towards a Night Operations scheme from the 2nd edition Imperial Armour 3 book. I think it will great and I am looking to try doing some more advanced camouflage methods using masking for this project.
The camo scheme I think I may end up using.
