After having completed another large unit for my Napoleonic Prussians (I will post pictures of those tomorrow) I treated myself to another small unit for the Tau Cadre I am working on. This time it is Stealth suits.
Now the fluff says that the stealth suits have stealth field generators that virtually turn them invisible like a cloaking device on Star Trek. Somewhere on the internet on the internet I saw pictures where someone had painted his to make them look like they were in the process of de-cloaking and I wanted to copy that. So part of the suit is in their regular black paint job look with orange Sept markings, while another part still shows the mottled greens from the environment projected by the stealth field. both parts are separated by a blue ripple to where everything is de-cloaking. Hope the effect turned out fine!
I know the fluff says that if the sensor vanes are painted in Sept colors, the model is a Shas´ui. But I simply liked the looks of the sensor vanes painted in orange in the new codex, so the whole of the team got them, along with some more orange over the suit to show their allegiance. After all I already said that my NCO´s and Officers are going to be marked by parts of their uniform or suit being picked up in tan (or a flame pattern) instead… so I am sticking with that!
