The badges are not very tau. Tau favor "The whole is more important than the one" concept, so personal medals don't really match their style. A shas'la fire warrior is only promoted after four years of service, not for some heroic deed.

They are very nicely painted and built, and look rather Bad @**

8/10

Well, they don't look bad...the paint looks a bit thick though. And like Sarnas said already the Tau don't do purity seals, but it looks alright nonetheless. Just isn't "fluffy". X) I like the extra sensor on their backpacks too, looks cool.

The only way to get better is practice. Learn what you can, try out different techniques, etc.

The only thing I believe you could do is to make the lines a tad straighter and to thin down your paints a little bit. once you do those things they would look perfect ;D

personally depending on how thick I think the paint needs to be I just dip my brush in my little cup of water (morelike gladware container...but oh well :P) for 1-2 seconds.

Well In my oponion the purity seals could be passages from Way of The Warrior Tau thing. The painting looks good but as Lonely Tau has said, water down your paints! Seriously my painting improved by 100% after I started watering down my paints.

P.s. Try to tidy up your spelling, we do have a built-in spell check :
