Default Tau Piranha

Just wondered what you thought of my Tau Pirahna. ;D

The pics are somewhat blurry, but from what I can see, looking good. If you can, try to highlight the edges of the armour plates, including the areas where seperates plates join.

Great idea. I will do that. I usually just highlight edges of the model :P

I like it, very impressive, but like Heastaris, I too wonder where the drones are.

It looks very good indeed. Though I wonder if the engines are fnished or not, because they're kind of...black, when they 'could' be metallic with some scorchmarks at the exhaust...
But all in all, it's looking very nice. Good job.

If you do want to paint the engine, this is really easy.

First, Paint the engine area completely black. Then go over it with boltgun metal or mithril silver being sure to leave a good line of black in the recceses. Then go over it with a really diluted bestial brown. That's it.

Alternatively, dry brush the whole engine aread with Boltgun Metal, then highlight it with Mithril Silver.
Now go over it with watered down Black Ink, say 50/50. This will give the blasted look.
Then use 50/50 water and Chestnut Ink as a reddish rust, go easy with it though. You might want to make it 75/25 as the chestnut Ink is quite bright.
