Default My Tau stuff *Update*

Yeah, you've seen this again and again, but hey, it happens.

Anywho, I've finally settled on a color scheme for my Tau, and this is the first Fire Warrior. I've also painted some XV15 suits, though they need touching up after taking a nasty fall of the tabletop(Scratched? Nooo! :cries. I'll be putting some of my Devilfish and Pathfinders up when they're done. Anywho, C&C is always welcome.







Edit: Those huge pics make my highlights look fat. >_< Guess I'll need to make them a bit neater.

Update!

Are you talking about the ones on the gun? I think I need to use a bit darker highlights, and yes, do it thinner.
Hm... Maybe I'll drop the highlights on the gun completely...

Some people like the look of large 'fat' exetreme edge highlighting, some don't. For example, on the edge of the stealth's armour plates. Some people like the highlights to be small.
I, however like them as it is. Well done

Ah thank you. I got the idea from the old Tau codex, and the red helmet just goes with my army colors. it did come out a bit thicker then I wanted them to, the highlights. I need to retouch them, so I'll probably fix that then.

Nice colour scheme but you might want to touch up on the highlights. Make them straighter and neater. I know it is a pain. I encounter it too but I always tell myself that the effort will be well worth it!

They look nice but the black on the burst cannons looks a bit thick.
