Amazing stuff! How did you do the effect on the icon? It's fantastic, really shows up with the purple to green! You've almost inspired me to start Tau up again, if only I wasn't bogged down by my Chaos project at the moment. Maybe I can fit them in somewhere... :

Erm, why does the second squad of Fire Warriors only number 9 Tau, whereas the reast have all got 10?

Love the paintjob though, the scheme is really cool and original as far as I've seen.

Another update.

1st Broadside 90% done, just need to tidy up the highlights to thin the odd line out here and there plus highlight the black parts with a 50/50 mix of black & grey.






Then its on to the next 3
