As I talked about before, I completed work on a Tau Ethereal after finishing the Ghostkeel. Like the Ghostkeel, I have had this model for a while and I am just now getting around to it.
The chest had the most detail removed. I tried to define the symbol with some black lining. I think I should have used a red or mixed a darker orange so it doesn't stand out so much. I think it looks decent but I know it would look better if it wasn't a straight black.
The disc is a bit of a problem. The colors just didn't want to stay on it. I think it took 5- 6 coats to get to where I was ready to throw in the towel.
In the end, I did a decent job. I am unsure if I will ever use him. I got him when we were going to an escalation league and start with a start collecting box. I had most of the items from a box but this guy so I just bought him. The league never did anything so it was a bit of a waste. If I am going to explore the Tau, I guess it is good to have all the options.
I am planning to go back to the GSC next. It will be nice to finish out the Jackals so I can move on to the Ridgerunners. Yes, Ridgerunners. I now have two.
