Default First Piranha

Not much to say really, the first piranha for my new tau army

Sorry about the slightly blurry pics, still perfecting my close-up photography.
And a cookie for anyone that guesses what the symbols on side panels are.

EDIT: Better Pictures

Looks great, at least from what I can see. As lonely said, need bigger and better pics.

Great job!

Well, If I could get a better camera, or remember to use macro (slaps self in head), I would have better pics.
Thanks for the compliments.
@Lonely: half right, so you gets half a cookie.

EDIT: Found the macro on the camera. And I get ShakyHands[sup]TM[/sup] when I try to photograph any small details.
Honestly, the internal details pic is the best of about seven.

Place your camera on something(books table etc.) : . That stops shakey hands.

Anyway It loooks good but the letters remind me of the Play Stations one.

Very nice paint job and do the symbols mean "24" as in the TV show?

interesting colour scheme. I am not a big fan of the black though. I think you should try to highlight it. The rest of the colours are fine, but the black completely absorbs the light and it is really difficult to make out edges, especially the helmets.

I would highlight the black with a thick but thin highlight. Thick in width: ie not just the edges, but a bit further, and thin by going from grey-black all the way to grewhite in shades. Not just a one colour highlight, but a shaded highlight.

This should deal with the light-absorbing effect of black
