Default my wip tau army

Hi everybody,

To make a little break in my guard army, i've decided to repaint all my tau army for 40k. I will also make a tau fleet for battlefleet gothic to start a little campaign with my friends (as soon as i will receive it from forgeworld).

I've decided to use a bone and turquoise scheme, because my sept is on a water covered planet (lagoons, white sand beaches, palm trees, coconuts,... perfect for the holidays of good serving taus). My fleet will receive the same scheme (as soon as i received it from fw).

The red disc is the sept symbol. It represents the rising sun (mainly because of the manga style of the tau army, and because of my japanese wife too)

Here are the first wip minis.

Shas'el (i need to work the turquoise highlights, but it looks better in the reality than on this pic):


First crisis (twin-linked fusion blaster), another one to come


First stealth (3 more to come)


First pathfinder (7 more to come, with a devilfish)


I'm sorrry for the poor quality of the pics (they were taken this morning, between coffee and shower).
C&C welcome !

great job. I like your technique. It is similar to the one I am using for my new Tau.
