Really really nice. Something to aspire too.

I have a question though. How do you get those fine lines all over the 'head? What's the process? Do you paint then go over with a fine tipped pen/brush? Thnx, and good job!

You mean the Black lines- just a small brush 10/0 or 18/0 and chaos black paint.

that would be blacklining, I use watered down black ink myself as it flows into the grooves easier but require 2-3 coats to look good.

nice minis, good stndard on even th RAF aswell, my commendations. why are the Tau painted like a circus rainbow though? it looks very odd, and if its squad or rank markings, why not a shoulderpad or the head?


BTW: like the SW shoulderpad on the Wulfen, nice touch ;D

I varied the color schemes to keep myself from getting bored. The wolfen was my Space Wolf Emporer's Champion. I went for more of an anime style.

lol, respect the anime ;D, does look cool.

the varied colours I'm not so hot as as it takes away from the cohesive unit theme of the game, but if it works for you.....

Very very clean and the colors on your Tau remind me of Robotech alot witht he green fighters blue fighters and red ones.

I have to say the ships is where you excell.
I am serious so clean and crisp both your eldar and tau ships are truley clean and painted very well.
I wish I could stay inside the lines as well as you.

The confrontation is nice and yes the shoulder pad is a nice touch. I caught that right away!
Very cool.

And I have to say that stealth team is almost exactly how I was working on some of mine so nice going on the color and the painting.

The only little thing is on the actual fire warriors.
Nothing big but they just dont stand out like your ohter works?

Might not be done or might be that you do so many at a time or the colors?
Dont know but the other works are just so nice and they are good dont get me wrong just not as eye catching as you other works.

Anyways great stuff and I would be impressed if that was my army and I was gaming with it on the table.

;D
