Default Sky Ray-Finished

This actually doesn't have a fancy Conversion or painting thread like my commander, as I could never really be bothered to to take pics of all the separate parts of this beast. I said in the Armour Thread that I should have it finished before Sunday (NZ, GMT+12) and here it is ~12 hours early. Enjoy.

Wow, the colors on their are so perfect. They flow very nicely. As always, I think that your tau are amazing. Is there any way that you could give us a picture on a flat table or board.

I can try. I can't guarantee any quality from the picture due to my shaky hands, but I can try.

I think the reason the colours flow is because I was too lazy to think of a 'real' colour scheme, instead I decided to play around with a 'monochrome' scheme, Codex Grey as the main, with Fortress as the secondary and Black as the tertiary colour. The odd panel is done in Shadow Grey, then detail is done as normal (chainmail+black ink for metallics, red shades for optics, etc). My sept colour—For Fal'shia, even though it's actually the Borkan colour—id Hawk Turquoise as it looked the nicest on Codex Grey.

All sept symbols on all my things are done freehand, so while they may look a tad messy, they're mine

[hr]

Notes on bits:
The little thing on the left of the chin sensors is part of a positional relay. It was a pain in the ass to get to size and shape, but it was worth it. Used to represent Targeting Array.

The things on the engines are Decoy Launchers made from Carbine Grenade Launchers (did a tutorial a while back).

The blue things on the nose are sanded down burst cannon struts, they represent Sensor Spines (as I personally hate the stock 'spines).

The battlesuit Multi-trackers at the rear represent just that, Multi-trackers (This was due to me finding that the piece I normally regarded as the 'Tracker would interfere with turret rotation).

Nicely done.

Couldn't you have taken the picture on a table?

Awesome use of bits for the decoy lanchers I've used the grenade holder thing. I still need to prime and paint the sky ray turret and the ion cannon. Did you do the sept symbol by hand?

Awesome, the second set of pics you posted made it look much, much better. I hope my tanks will look that good. ;D
