Default Piranha (Updated)

I have recently started a Tau army and here is the first thing that I have painted. I was experimenting with some new techniques on my airbrush. I was quite pleased with the results.

C&C is welcome.

It is a 1:1 mix of commando khaki and bleached bone, and then just bleached bone.

Lovely. So very smooth and soft. But at the same time I think that may be something I don't like about it! I think war machines should look rugged, dirty and brutal. This looks exceptionally graceful and lithe, not at all 'fighty'. It's so gentle on the eyes, I wonder if the addition of battle damage would look out of place, or whether it'd contrast well with the otherwise peaceful and neutral colours? As it is, it looks almost angelic.

It's really well done anyway, it looks great and the black lining is flawless, but it just seems incomplete. Do show us the finished model when you're done won't you?

Well, here's the thing. The picture doesn't look anything like the actual model. The actual model is weathered, and somewhat gritty. The lighting in the picture makes the paint look rather light, but in reality it is somewhat dark.

Another thing. I actually didn't do any black lining at all. That is just the natural effect from the airbrush.

I like it ;D. I am actually working on my first piranha now, it's a completely different color though. Good work!

They're dark but you can see the progress that I've made.

Reckon you can get us a picture shot in daylight then?
