Default Battle Damaged Tau Piranha

Here's my latest model - a weathered and battle damaged Tau Piranha!

great job! Are you going to do additional work on the burst cannon? It looks much newer than the remaining model.

It's hard to see in the photos, but I've weathered the burst cannon as well. It's painted boltgun metal, and I washed it with a burnt umber japancolor oil, so it looks dirty and grimy as well.

Great work, bud. I've mostly got to grips with fine detail, and to a lesser extent; shading...but battle damage is one of those things I either do really well or really badly. You've got it perfect.

What do you mean it seems a little over the top? I thought I did a good job of making it "realistically" battle damaged... ??? I suppose it is true it is quite unlike most Tau armies (or 40k armies in general for that mattter) which are painted very pristinely - but I like that grimy realism for my armies.

Oh, the blue is Hawk Turquoise, by the way. But, after I paint the models I do a wash with thinned down Burnt Umber japancolor to make it look all dirty.
