Chameleon Auxiliary - Tau Kill Team

I'd been anticipating the release of the Wargames Atlantic plastic Lizardmen, again with the intention of adding another xenos auxiliary to my Tau Kill team. I knew the kit was going to have a cool chameleon head.

As soon as I got the box I went to work modifying the arm to accept a Tau pulse rifle, with a new scope. I used a scabbard from the kit and added a new handle for a sheathed sword as well. Lastly, I sculpted a small shoulder pad so I could visually link him to the team a bit more.

I wasn't sure how I wanted to paint him, so I polled my Instagram account.


My sadistic followers voted for 3 (although I must be a masochist for listing it as an option... ).

Funny enough I don't have a Vespid or Kroot on the team, I need to rectify that.

  1. He looks great! And a great bunch of aliens to boot. I'm going to have to borrow some of these ideas for inspiration on my Stargrave crew.

    1. Stargrave is probably what these guys will be used for, never have used them for an actual 40K Kill Team game :)

    1. Hehehe, thanks, it took a little time! I can safely say we won't be seeing a unit of these!

      After a photo session I went back and did more work to get to this state :)
