Default Tau colour scheme

Hi guys. Almost finished my first hammerhead for my new tau army. Getting the colour scheme right has been my biggest problem. I'm fairly happy with this one but wondered if I could get a few outside opinions?

Just needs weathering.

Thanks

Looks good man although your IA is a little bland and this is just me but I like to make the visor stand out aside from that looks cool.

Cheers dude. I can't disagree regards the ion cannon blandness.. Iv been wary of adding to many different colours but I'm gonna try and add some depth to it.

I would say add the same camo to it that you did for the rest and put whatever color your using for the blast energy on the top cylinder covers(The little dot) and the mid and rear piping.

That's a nice looking vehicle!
Maybe just a tiny bit of white blended into the tip of that ion cannon to make the radiation look hotter?
