Default Tau Army(Pics) [Updated 13th Aug]

This thread will be the 'album' for my Tau army! Enjoy! *

Keep in mind that this is my new Tau army. And not the one that I battle with. I do have a bigger army but it is not worthy of being posted here. *

C&C welcome.

A nice, crisp paintjob overall. In particular, I love the effect on that plasma rifle. Only one thing I picked up on - you've slopped a bit of orange paint onto the back of the pirahna engines, I'd touch that up with some black.

Yeah very good paint job

I really like the tan paint job you gave them (always thought it fit the tau best)

Also the shading on you r etheral is really nice

Thanks for the good comments guys!* ;D

* * * * * *
By the way I still need to finnish the ethereal, the battlesuit with the plasma rifle and I still need to paint the engines on the pirahna.

After that I am going to build and convert some models which I have lying around the house (they've been unmade since christmas)* :-[. These include a broadside, another xv8, two more squads of FW (which won in a painting competition), some stealth suits, shadowsun and some vespids.
* * * * * **
After that I will probably have enough money to buy a devifish and another hammerhead. I haven't posted my first hammerhead because I do not think that I have painted it well enough.
* * * * * *
So after a while this post will be pretty pic heavy*


Also, is anyone interested in knowing what colours I use for the scheme? They are a bit different from what most people use, I think.

Paint them in Red Gore (or Foundation Paint equivalent), with a Skull White dot in the top-left corner and a crescent of 50% Red Gore and 50% Bleached Bone in the bottom-right corner. Works for my red lenses.

I think I dont see as much highliting as I want to see

Thats something you can work on. They are nicely painted but it looks as though they are not finished.

You are doing something I want to do 2 in the future. Build a real Tau army next to my battle army. I mean in the tau colours and everything
