Tau Army Dra ‘rax – Part 4  

Sorry for all the work in progress posts. I find they actually help to keep me motivated. 

In this post we have X3 XV8 Crisis Battlesuits. 

These have been my favourite models to build so far for this project. I think I mostly enjoyed adjusting the poses and getting the bases just right. 

The Tau seem to have an Eastern or Japanese sort of vibe/influence to them so I have the first model a katana or samurai sword. I made it from a sprue but do you think it’s a little too small. As you can see I also have him a shield. He’s my favourite of the group as he’s a little different 

The next model I’ll be building is an XV95 Ghostkeel Battlesuit. Kind of a cool name and I think he will be bigger than these bad boys.

  1. Dammit man, what are you doing?! You’re making me excited about Tau! This isn’t supposed to happen! I’m going to sit in the corner and think about Chaos now until I feel better!

    Seriously, these are great and the sword is a nice touch – makes me think of Commander Farsight. I’ve always had a soft spot for the Ghostkeel so I’m looking forward to seeing what you do with that.

    1. Haha as much as you were surprised that I’m doing Tau I’d be doubly as surprised if you started a Tau army. Although I could see you doing a small samurai themed one. The Ghostkeel model looks pretty cool as is so I think it’ll be about positioning and the base.

  2. The katana is a clever idea, mate! I think the symbol of the Tau (no idea what the name is) looks pretty eastern as well. Now I want to see some bonsai terrain and Japanese/Chinese temples for your terrain, mate 🙂
