IDK if Citadel makes one specifically, I'm sure they do, but like a lot of their products, you're often better off getting a different brand that's just as good quality (and frequently better) as well as being cheaper.


What I personally use is Testors clear:


You don't have to use a lot, just enough to get an even coat over the whole miniature. Be sure to spray this outside or in a well-ventilated area. Also, don't forget that when you're done coating your models, to hold the spray can upside down and spray the excess for a couple seconds until it's just spraying the medium -- that way it clears out the spray mechanism. If you don't, it'll be clogged up next time you go to use it. This is true for all kinds of spray cans, including primers -- it's a common rookie mistake, so just mentioning it in case you haven't worked with this stuff yet.

It's a little blurry, but it looks like you need to mesh the greenstuff onto the cloak a little better. It looks like there is a gap between the two?

Having the gap on the shoulders is fine, since it is sitting on top of them, but you want it to blend into the cloak itself, since it is supposed to be part of it.

Do you have a sculpting tool? They help a lot when dealing with greenstuff, especially for keeping your fingerprints off of it.

This is what I use;

I use two of these for my Tau currently. Not sure how they'd cope with larger models though. They fit broadsides and up to Ghostkeel quite easily though.

For my Tyranids which have a few bigger things I use this tool box I've magenetised the bases of all my models. Can fit up to a Trygon in height but lying down (it's magnetised to the side of the box).

The soft cases are pretty good against drops but can easily be crushed, the tool box is pretty much uncrushable but not great at sudden drops. Think I've ended up preferring the tool box though because;

  1. it's really cool to have it unfold open full of models
  • it's super quick to unpack and repack compared to foam.

I purchased this guy for $64.82. It was an Open Box unit on the Amazon Warehouse Deals. Literally, still shrink wrapped, just in a different box. No damage. Usually a $200-250 air compressor. I was given my first airbrush (my daily driver) as payment during a commission. It is a Badger Patriot 105. I was intimidated by it for over a year and then I decided to jump head first one day and honestly, I haven't looked back. Only regret was not starting sooner. Amazon has the Badger Patriot 105 on sale for $75. At the beginning of the year Badger Airbrush company ran a Happy 54th Birthday Sale and I picked up the Badger Renegade Krome for $54 haha. It retails for $200-250 but Amazon has it on sale for $102. I have yet to use this guy yet, but I am nearing the end of a project and I am going to give it a whirl in a couple weekends. The Airbrush hose for the badgers are listed as well.

My Compressor:

Alternative Compressor 1

Alternative Compressor 2

My 1st Airbrush

My 2nd Airbrush

Compressor Hose

With that being said, you can find deals ALL OVER THE just have to look for them. I am always scowering the web for the best deals possible haha. For the past 3 years I have been using a 5hp construction grade pancake compressor with a moisture trap. Let me tell you....I REGRET not upgrading to an airbrush compressor much sooner. The air is more consistent, you can fine tune the correct PSI and it is exponentially more quiet. I personally don't care about the tank feature, but that is a personal preference.

Hope this helps you all :D

Try a wet palette so your paint doesn't start to gum up. And try a larger brush (it holds more moisture so the paint on tip doesn't dry as quick)

I personally bought a wet palette on amazon and a winsor & newton series 7 size 3 brush and it's really helped smooth my paint out. The clumps are coming from paint drying.

People who say "expensive" brushes aren't worth it and that you should be Michelangelo before buying anything nice are pretentious.

Rotring Tikky Graphic pen 0.1mm has the best flow and is what I've used here. I've used other pens that are even thinner which was great at 0.05mm but the flow wasn't as good so I'm going to stick with Tikky for the moment. I've heard that you get a more realistic result using a dark brown ink instead of black but I haven't been able to find a decent one as yet.

I would also advise you to get a fine mechanics clamp vise, a small clamp vise with rubber clamps that hold most bits quite nicely, helped me quite a lot

I used This one

I also use 1/16" magnets for the subsytems, if you feel like magnetizing those.


u/fluffy_warthog10 · 1 pointr/Tau40K

These are a good place to start:




The 1/16" are good for sticking small weapons (stealth, crisis suit, etc) to suit arms and nacelles, while the 1/8" are better for heavier stuff like hatches, Hammerhead and other tank weapons, seeker missiles and drones.

u/KyranTheWalker · 2 pointsr/Tau40K

Yeah the army painter drill is just a pin vice drill from the looks of it which is the kind used for magnetizing models.

This here is a set of 100 magnets and a matching size drill bit that I used to magnetize my smaller minis.

The first book I bought was an E book full of other books.

The Tau Empire A Legends of the Dark Millennium book

Commander Shadow
Shadowsun: The Last of Kiru's Line
A Sanctuary of Wyrms
Out Caste
Fire and Ice
The Patient Hunter
The Kauyon
The Tau'va

This book is from the perspective of a Rogue Trader and the first crusade attacking the Tau Empire.
Rogue Trader Omnibus

This book is about an Imperial Guard regiment fighting Gue'vesa and Tau forces.
Fire Caste

Fire Warrior Is about an individual fire warrior absolutely wrecking imperial forces on his own. It gives a lot of interesting views on imperial culture from the perspective of the fire caste.

I would absolutely buy the first book listed again, it's 10 stories. Some of them are pretty short but it's neat how you hear about some of the characters again in other books.

If you are starting out from scratch you should invest in this brush cleaner. Use it when you're done painting and it will drastically extend the life and quality of your brushes. One tub will last you for years.

u/Blfrog · 3 pointsr/Tau40K

That box in itself is about 900 points, and full of crisis suits and drones. Its actually a killer deal too. I could honestly recommend it to anyone that plays tau. Here it is on amazon. The box msrp is $170, but even at 200 its a steal. Its over $300 worth of stuff, and crisis suits are alot of fun imo.
