Well I give you credit for flocking the bases. So many people don't and it gets annoying looking at bare bases

How long have you been painting?

What paint did you use? I only ask because they look glossy and reminds of me of Testers paint? Are they GW paint?

You did a nice job on the helmets and picking out the eye lenses.

The green is fine (jungley theme to it ) but your lines could be cleaned up a bit. The paint on the chest of the models look crowded, I see yellow on green and I think you put a bit too much paint on as the details seem to be lost.

I like the idea of painting the squad leaders shoulders white. I paint my helmets white on my squad leaders.

Overall on a scale of 1-10 I would say your painting is a 4.5 - 5. Which is table top worthy. You definately put some time into painting them and it shows and with more practice you will only get better.

Thanx mate,

I just realized, THEY ARE MUCH LESS blinking in real, DAM flash... As soon as I'll get the camera from a friend again I'll do better pics. Case I just finished two more models and their pictures look nothing like a real thing.

Ok now for question:

Well I don't remember, couple month.

Aaa I use dirt cheap paints ;D Some acrylic that runs from water like grots from orcs...
I think the set cost like ... dam I forgot I think 3-5$ so yeh... ;D One think that I do is after acrylic paint is dried I put some gauge (water base dirt cheap paint) over with same cover. It helps a lot. Also I got some other acrylic paint separately... No it doesn't like water either ;D

Not really jungle, more forest/deep forest/semi forest. But if the crash land in jungle sure why not ;D . Yeh I made a mistake with putting lots of why stripe on the models, but I put some brown/yellow dirt mix to weather it...

About customizations, plz check out "conversions" board for Tau battle honors topic. I am planning giving them some custom stuff...

Thanx, As soon as I'll get better pics and make more models I'll post em hear.

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!

Hmmm, thanks for sharing. I will admit I think the models look a little messy up close (probably a result of the well-priced paints ) - but I think from a distance the overall look with be nice and gritty - unlike these Tau armies you see that look like Tonka toys!

+1 Karma for you. Although please go easy on the smilies.

If it were lighter, I might say something different, but from what I can tell... They are really messy. The white stripes just kind of stick out and don't go with the scheme. If you watered down the white and applied it in layers, it might.

Dude... spell check dude...

Otherwise, looks OK but as said white lines stand out. Perhaps a darker color strip goes with your scheme? Like another shade of green, or dark blue.

4/10, which is better then a lot of people these days!

Cheers,
Sarnas
