Tau: xv9 commander R'Alai by Atropos907 Tau: xv9 commander R'Alai by Atropos907
an xv9 hazard suit commander R'alai from forgeworld.
99% airbrushed (bit of drybrushing on the base) . note the carbon fiber shiny armor, the recessed lights between armor panels, and the inconspicuous shields deflecting an impressive barrage with the shield drones pulling their own weight on the small arms fire, and the primary shield shrugging off a hit from a strength 10 weapon.

If I ever play against this model (Despite being a Tau player myself) I would immediately concede on the grounds of awesome.

Also, how did you do the shields proper? I want to add them to my Farsight model, because in the last few games he took no damage while sitting out in the open in a very un-Farsight-like manner. I blamed his shields, even though all of the wounds he saved were normal armour saves.

Shield are just airbrushed acrylic.   Get any piece of clear acrylic like christmas bulbs made of plastic, and  cut and paint them.

The level of painting skill on display here blows my mind, I may have to pick up an airbrush and spend the next 10 years trying to master it.
