About Xenos and Proud

This is a small blog about my Warhammer 40,000 hobby. I will try to concentrate on the tactics behind the general game and my Xenos armies but there will be the odd post about random stuff.

About Me

Aberdeen, United Kingdom
Xenos and Proud is an 18 year old from Scotland who has been playing 40K for the last 4 years. He loves the 'under-dog' xenos armies, namely his Tyranid Gorgon splinter fleet, his Saim-Hann windrider host, his Tau Vleastean Hunter-cadre and the newest addition, the Shadowfax Corsairs. Although his tactics are mostly 'borrowed', his painting skills still 'developing' and his luck becoming evermore 'ridiculous' he continues to play, paint and roll in the hope that one day things will get better.

I finally plucked up the courage to take a brush to my Barracuda model and trust myself to not make a mess of it. This is the first painted model of my Tau Cadre so sets the colour scheme which I think has turned out well.

I love the camouflage aspect of the Tau so picked a colour scheme that looked stealthy. My Cadre being on a very harsh, stormy and rainy world I decided to go with grey.

The underside is washed purple as the planet has a purple tinge to the sky and plantlife.

The stand was difficult but I managed to add a pin to the model to keep it secured to the flying base when in play.


  1. Great work and nice to see it complete on the base. Mine is in the post as I type and I can't wait to get started on it!
