Haha, I've found this again! You totally inspired me with this back when it came out, and I finally got around to getting it together not too long ago. Great work! Now that I've got some new Tau, trying to think of where/how to plug them into ME as well. XD

I'm glad I got you inspired! :D Thank you!

Yes, the Tau have some similarites in style with Mass Effect in general, with the clean lines. A cerberus atlas mech perhaps? Maybe but some "horns" on the Tau without helmets and make salarians? Endless possibilites!

Here are some more miniatures (not by me!) to get you inspired:

do you think making the illusive man chapter master would work too? that would be so rad!

That... would be awesome!!! I'm looking for some good models to fit, but that proved to be difficult :P Suits aren't that common, unfortunately. I'm thinking the regimental advisor
(dude in the middle), he even has some fitting hair. Maybe even a ninja from infinity as Kai Leng!

maybe! specially since the allies rule is out now, maybe give the illusive man a team of ninja bodyguards.

Not bad, though personally I would have gone with alliance, N7 colour scheme is pretty awesome. Did you use to play Dark Angels or did you buy that dreadnought like that?

MoritzNina Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks :)

I actually considered to make them the Systems alliance. They do, however, have blue base with yellow details, which happens to be the colours for my county (Sweden), so I didn't want to mix that... That is, if you follow the Captain Anderson/Admiral Hackett uniform.

I already used the black/white/red for my tau, with mass effect structures in mind, because I thought they resemble each other even if N7 uses black as the base. The N7 (black base with white/red) just seemed too close in colour. For the record though, they're my favourite colours!

The dreadnought is a mistake by me, I bought the models of someone, and she had already assembled and painted one dreadnought.

I have some Spacemarines too. They play great, way easier than Tau. I will field them the 17th together with my Tau and maybe SOB in an Apocalypse. I like the colour scheme you used for your Spacemarines. Bye, Maarten

Thanks! :) Yep, they are easier to play, but it just not as much happening as when you're playing orks or tau, I think!

Maarten-Michiel Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2012
Well, Orks or Tau are great fun too of course :) They are cool armies and you are fielding a lot more models with Tau or Oks than when playing a battle with Spacemarines. I am really looking forward to the Apocalypse battle in two weeks. Will probably be the Imperium/Tau versus Chaos and Necron. Bye, Maarten

Apocalypse battle huh? Tell me how it goes :) Who are you playing?
Reply
:iconmaarten-michiel:
Maarten-Michiel Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2012
I am not sure yet who is going to participate, Peter (Chaos) and me (Tau/SOB/Spacemarines), probably Vincent (Necron), Jorke (maybe with his Grey Knights), and possibly some others. Jorke and Peter are experienced 40k players who also play at tournaments, and they know the rules of Apocalypse quite good.

Very good, but I'm not clear on the white aspect of it - and shouldn't the Terminators be in white as well?

Other than that, good job! :)

MoritzNina Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist

I tried to make the commanders stand out more, but keeping the orange as the "extra" colour, as it is more iconic for Cerberus.
Black is easier to paint, so the white ones will get more attention.
