Default My Tau skimmers

After almost a year, I finally finished all my Tau skimmers. The photos arn't too great, so I apologize. The 3 tanks have 4 magnetic hardpoints and have are all modular, so they can all switch turrets to give me potential combinations of 1 Skyray, 2 Hammerheads (one rail and one ion), and 3 Devilfish. All have removable landing gear. On the Skyray, all the seeker missles can be detached, and the burst cannon bits in the front cupolas can be removed for Smart Missle System bits (not pictured). Also pictured is my sole Piranha - the first vehicle I ever painted (sometime last December). Its weapon (burst cannon) is also swappable (fusion blaster), and has 2 magnetic hardpoints.

Your color scheme is weirding me out to be honest. Is that purple and pink? Better lighting might help with the pics too.

Yeah... the lighting is bad... CFL bulbs...

It's purple... the devilfish's purple got mixed with some skull white (a bit too much), and serves to remind me which chasis is the main devilfish...

I wanted to use Dark Angels-esque colors for my vehicles, the blood red is the sept color, and I forget exactly why I used purple... I know I had a reason... but I forgot it sometime in March...
The two pathfinders in the piranha have catchacan green armor w/ graveyard earth cloth...

They look good but it looks like the models need more light on them. They are really dark. Thing is some pictures of the backs of the vehicles would be good too.
