Default Tau Fire Warriors

I've finally finished my first squad of Fire Warriors. These also happen to be the first models I've ever painted. Tell me what you think, please! Criticism is welcome.

Wow! Thanks! I'm glad you think so.

I'm working on my second team of Fire Warriors; I decided to go with a different color scheme. They'll probably be done next weekend.

Do you mean the colors from model to model, or that the brown/red/khaki colors don't match?

I personally don't think the colours match, other than that looking good

for first time models there sweet

but you could try dressing up the bases a little
with static grass and lichen

I'd say the colours are good. (Armour/undercloth) but the gloves are to bright (bleached bone?) and are sucking the attention away from the rest of the model. Overall those are pretty good.

Don't paint a different squad in a different colour scheme..individualism sucks.

It make's an army look messy. especially with the ever proper Tau. Go same colours throughout the army.
It will be interesting how a XV Crisis comes out, should look good.

Good job and good luck,

Aaron

Oh yes make the bases pretty too!
