Recent tinkering

Got my first objective marker finally done. Really happy how it looks.. The matt varnish gave it sort of crappy finish but luckily didnt ruin it completely. Gotta get my self new bottle of varnish.. Really enjoyed painting it.

"No one is left behind"

 Also started working on some other models. Got this idea while browsing through my bits and trying some poses. Thought making a soldier on guard dury or something might look cool. I might use it in some diorama maybe.

Final warning

 Also made one Darkon wasteland thug.

There are numerous gangs in Darkon system. The vast wastelands are swarming with thugs, criminals and animals who will do anything to get their daily dose. Many of them are former soldiers who were expelled from the army or criminals exiled from community. Some are just regular people who have had hard lives and lost the meaning.

Some thugs seek refuge among the original habitants of Darkon, "The beastkin". Beastkin often live in the darkest corners of the world, where no sane man wants to go. Those areas may be highly radioactive or there may be biochemical threats that only beastkin can survive. Some have settled in old abandoned mines. The gangs and beastkin may form groups large enough to go full war against the imperial army to fight for better living territories.

Another objective marker.
Shot down enemy intel drone. Worth obtaining and investigating

Tau sends a lot of drones to scout the planets of Darkon to reveal any strategic locations or obtain valuable information. One single drone can carry enough information to solve a whole battle or even a whole war. That information must not get to hands of enemy and that is why every drone must be hunt down and destroyed.

In some places even the citizens are encouraged to hunt down TAU drones by awarding a high bounty on every destroyed drone brought to army outpost. Campaign has been very succesful and even lead to birth of groups of "drone hunters" who live by just hunting down drones.

New wip storm trooper.

Chimera almost done. Still needs dust, varnish and some unit markings, but consider it done.
