 :-XThats a good conversion (chaos plasma if I'm not mistaken). It's true the meta tends to portray tau as techno-snobs that tend to only use their own and press it onto other protected races. But this makes more sense. They openly share with other races in their protectorate so why not the other way round.
Oh, yeah.  It's rather nicely painted too... ;)

Really marvellous paint and conversion jobs. I especially dig your Chaos Fleet from the 1990s. Keep up the good work.

Yeah, totally agreeing on that one. And thanks.

I love those Tobari Raiders! Maaaaany years ago I tried something similar using Khorne Berserker backpacks and little bits from an old small scale robotech Veritech Fighter.

Heh, yeah. They go way back. Please post those variants you made!

At one point I still like to add a larger model for the Tobari. Be it a modified asteroid homebase or a large flying fort.

Sadly enough I've lost all pictures of them when my old laptop died. What's even more 'tragic' is that recently I've donated my entire bitsbox to 28 Mag, but by then those ships were probably already in a thousand small pieces. :(

That's a pity. Design them in 3D?

^Ah yeah!

And somewhere in 2013 the great cabinet drop happened and one of the main victims was my Void Stalker. Finally fixed it (I think) and updated the paintjob:

Well, thanks but, really, you're good.

And with that said, all my fleets minus two Helios models, crashed Custodian and Blackstone Fortress

Haha thanks for the compliment.  ;D Although you ARE certainly putting me to shame in pure output  :o

The fleets look great. I also have a fleet for each race (bar necrons) but haven't even begun to tackle the lead mountain that is my 'to-do pile'.

lol.

Well, next up, only basecoated: two modified Protectors. And then kitbashing some more Tobari stuff. Still want to a Space Hulk at one point. And on the horizon maybe some Craftworld Eldar vessels.

Plus the test of making the Tau white again.
