Review of Phoenix Forge's counts as tau

I picked up a bunch of models from phoenix forge on shapeways. You can find the blog here and the store on shapeways here.

I printed all of the models in White strong and flexible plastic. The overall detail is good and much cheaper then the ultra frosted detail. I got a single counts as custodian that comes in 4 pieces, 3 counts as wardens, 3 counts as castellan's and 2 counts as defenders. The only down side is that they don't come with stands. But I have a ton of GW ones running around from my tau so not a real problem. Check out the pics below and you will see these getting painted in the future.

As a side note he also has started making counts as eldar ships.

    1. Better be nice I always wanted the FW tau ones but didn't have the cash before they disappeared to get them.

  2. These look really nice, but what is the scaling like?

    1. Honestly dont know I can do measurements if you like but I have never owned any bfg stuff. There are supposedly made to be in BFG scale by the guy and to resemble the forgeworld ones. I can also do comparison shots with my FSA stuff if you would like. It seems many people have been using FSA stuff for BFG anyway even if some the stuff, ie battleships, are a bit too big.
