Default Newly painted elements of my Tau army (pic heavy)

Hi, I'm a new Tau-online member and just finished a couple of units for my Tau army and thought I'd upload some images of them, looking for some feed back I guess.

Apologies for poor photography, still getting to grips with photographing '40k scale', and am new to posting so hope you can see them ok.

Welcome to TO!... payment is $50, payable to either TO, FT or myself.

They look great... nice smooth colors and nice highlights... I do quite like the scheme as well.

Oh btw... your lenses look really clean too

Those are some sexy models. And I don't even like Tau.

Beautify, nice, neat and clean.

Those look great! I'm loving the color scheme, very military looking.

I look forward to seeing more of your work here at TO.

Hey,
It looks good, you seem to have learnt how to apply and even, neat basecoat follow up by a neat straight highlight.
Since it seems like you have learnt how to do this well, I'd move on to applying a 2nd highlight, next time, simply make your first highlight wider, and not so thin, then add some Bone or White into the mix and apply that in the same manner, but make sure you apply a bit more water. Do this and you will be well on your way!
Cheers
