Default Piranha what do you think?

Here is one of the three piranha's i've just bought i've a new them for my more senior tau in terms of their armour, thats why the pilot etc are different colours, i've painted the water caste emblem on the chest plate too, and the co-pilots screen is locking a target (well thats the idea of the red lines)





sorry about the camera on this but you get the idea of the red outer lines identifying a lock on.

Hehe, thats great. Never have I seen just realism painted on a race with hooves for feet :P, jk.

Anyway, thats realy good, with a better camera, we could see the real detail but thats good without detail already! Good weathering

Not bad, looking at the weathering from a distance, it looks great, but when you look close at it, it looks like a bit ... well, sloppy. Although I can see you have put plenty of effort into your Piranha, to me the weathering up close, doesn't work.

But thats just my perfectionist attitude, besides you've done a good job.

The weathering i think your referring to is not supposed to be weathering but part of the camo. Thats why it doesn't really look good upclose as it was never supposed to be weathering. Sorry about the camera it was all i had at the time
