Default My New Tau

I just wanted to show everyone my first batch of Fire Warriors. See what everyone thinks of 'em.
Fluff wise, I'm thinking they come from a mining planet that very rocky and mountainous. Thus the grey armour and green sept colour. I still have some work to do on them, but the basics are done. I still have another 4 to assemble and paint, so any tips for improvement would be helpful.

Without further ado, here they are:

Nice, clean work! I like the colors, and the smooth painting!

The highlights could be a bit more...bold, in my opinion. I can hardly see them and it makes it look flat.

What colours would you suggest for the highlight? I did Skull White added to the base colour on all of the edges. Should try doing more skull white mixed in or should I go for just Bleached Bone or something off white?

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Well as of know they look better than my own FireWarriors :P The Color scheme is very nice and clean. I like the eyes most of all. They look pretty good and there isn't much taht you could improve on. Have you tried some hightlights on the armour or drybrushing? The cloth looks a little bland and I think that you should try drybrushing some lighter blue or maybe white to bring out the folds. They look very nice with good bases too.

I just noticed you highlighted the cloth :P ignore that.
