The Scythes are one of my favourite chapters, I've been meaning to do a force of them for a while!

I love the colours in this piece!

Seeing jumped-up space marines getting torn to shreds by tau fire power is just so... beautiful.

At that range the Scythes should drop their bolters and slap the shit out of the Tau FireWarriors!

Tau: "Look, can't we just live in peace for the Greater Good?"

Space Marine: "Well, actually, that's sound reasonable, except for one thing..."

Tau: "Yes...?"

Space Marine "You are Xenos..."

Tau: "That we are, as your kind designate us..."

Space Marine "Our sovereign and leader the Emperor told us all Xenos are bastards who fucks Humanity's shit up..."

Tau: "Okay...?"

Space Marine: "And since because of this, consorting, negotiating or even having a Xeno in the same star system is considered not only unacceptable, but outright blasphemous..."

Tau: "Well, its not that bad..."

Space Marine: "And above all, your pulse rifles scratched the paint of my Astartes armor..."

Tau: "What exactly are you getting at?"

Space Marine: "IT MEANS THE GREATER GOOD IS COMING TO YOU FROM MY BOLTER, FILTH!"

Tau: "... Oh for goodness sake, fine. PLAN B, BOYS!"

[Epic firefight ensured]
