Default Devilfish FTW!

I recently purchased the Tau Battleforce, and I put together the Devilfish, sprayed it Shadow Grey and added some other colors. The (almost) finished product:





The third pic (of the whole thing) is slow in coming so check again later, I'll put it up as soon as it comes back from cyberspace...

C&C Please if you can

Well... it does look kinda... unpainted. :-\

Still, you did a great job considering the minimum of paint you used. Could use a bit more detail though. :P

Looks pretty plastic-ky to be honest. Maybe put some more highlights?

That's not the plastic, that's my really, really grey Shadow Grey spray paint, as noted at the beginning of the first post.

Please post on the Painting board until it is completely finished.

As far as the model, it does look like the plastic. I would highlight it and add some more colors maybe on the vents, burst cannon and the drones weapons.

Oh it is complete, I just added the "(almost)" just incase I did do some of the suggestions other people had said...like highlighting.

Then you would still post it in the painting board if there is a chance you will add to it. The painting board is where you ask for suggestions, the Showcase is finished projects you don't intend to add to. How are we supposed to determine your definition of almost?

You should add some color to the engine intake vents and weapons at least. I'd advocate using black for those areas. You really do need to highlight the gray a bit. Tau vehicles are generally large enough to have natural light do some of the highlighting for you, but you should do some minimal work on it.
