Default My first TAU army

I'm not a great painter. I just want to play with my army.

I did some photoshopping to show some of my army.

Attack!

This is my first XV8 painting.

I wanted a dirty look and a camo look. The legs are unfinished but I just don't have time to finish, so I play with it as it is.

Very nicw work there. I think the paint job is very nice and clean. At the very least a very good table top standard.

Keep it up

They aren't bad, I think the Camo Green highlights are a little thick, but to be honest that doesn't really mattter, they're cool enough.

Very nice detail work on the FW and the devilfish. The highlighting on the crisis suit is noce too if a bit think. Great work over all.

Tanx for the comments.

My next suit (probably a commander, if I ever dump more money in this game) will benefit from what I learned painthing all this.

I heard windex is good to dissolve the paint off plastic model. I'd like to redo my fire warrior since I painted them in a hurry, in the dark at my job between breaks. Their problem is that I used too much paint and did not knew how good drybrushing work.

Maybe on my pic they look cool, but I assure you, they are crappy up close. They look like they have been battelling in very dirty places for a couples of years without a shower. smelly FW!
