Good work, man! What sept are you going for?

Im a big fan of clean, intense colors on tau myself, mine are a more bold variant of the sac'ea sept.

I kind of liked the description of the Vior'la so I figured I would go with a army from their planet. Is there a way to find more back story on the individual sept's?

I strongly suggest the Taros campaign book. Also, Brightsword was trained by Farsight, and has a very Vior'la style of combat. I believe he has a couple of novels, and of course, hes got some fluff in the Cityfight codex.

I believe they may have been mentioned briefly in the original tau codex as well, since they were one of the early septs.

Im sure some fluff is probably available on this forum as well, though officialness may vary immensely.

Except the Taros campaign book aka Imperial Armor III if I remember right is poorly edited and very expencive. If you can afford it, it does have some nice stuff but the editing is poor and the cost and shipping are well...

Anyway this belongs in the Showcase, but that said its a very nice paint job, much cleaner and smoother than I am capable of. Nicely done!

Nice work. The white is lovely and clean and the red is rich and vibrant. Well done you have a great model there.

I really like the colours.
How did you get them so smooth?!

It could do with a little shading/highlighting to make the colours 'pop' a little more, but that's up to you.
Very nice work.

It's very smooth and crisp, but I think it'd benefit no end by some extensive weathering.

Mind you, imagine the embarrassment for a grizzled old battle hardened Space Marine company when they get their butts kicked by the good people of toy town.
