Default First Tau Crisis Suit

I have some pics of a suit I was painting tonight (this is the first suit I have ever painted):







Its not finished yet of course. After a bit of touch up work I might want to add decals or look for more detail to add. The weapons aren't finished yet but I attached them for the picture. The burst cannon is held in place by a magnet. I plan to use magnets on all my hardpoint. This way I can switch every suite up to however I need it for the next opponent.

Looks good but your paint is looking a thick thinning with water or water mixed with future floor wax will help a lot, however your painting is very clean excellent black lining and always a plus on magnetizing your crisis hardpoints

How many beds are in a Crisis suite?

Or did you perhaps mean SUIT.

Looks pretty good, especially for a first attempt. I like the black and white color scheme, but you need to find a way to work in some other colors; perhaps on the weapons or the head? It's just a little bland with only black and white.

It has hawk turquoise eyes and for the very tiny details on some panels as lights.

And its actually got a lot of red in there, in the cracks of the armore..

Im sorry I didnt take better pictures with more light. I dont really have anything besides my laptop camera to use either.
