Default Making of my Tau Army.(Update p2, 3 news pics)

Hi every body! I've just started an all new Tau army. Making conversion for my battle suits, and panting every units. So, i'm gonna put some pictures right here each time a unit will be done.
I wanted to make a color scheme close to the one used in the Tau codex, but quite different enough to be mine.
One reason I started the Tau army( the first one it's because of the models of course) is the GW Tau army paint scheme.

So, here are my three first units:

Shas'O( XV-89 Crisis, forge world model) and my ethereal and Tau.

Very nice and clean unit markings, and from what I can tell some good-looking gemstone effects. Can't quite tell what the light tone is from the photos--looks like a washed-out sepia, or maybe a light bronze? A little monochromatic with the reddish cast of the lighter shade, but they work well together. The paint looks a bit heavy on the Ethereal's cloak. Excellent work on the basing, and on the poses. That advanced crisis suit looks ready to leap off the base and kick some ass.

All in all, great work.

You've definately got the makings of a great painter, my only suggestion is to clean your painting up a bit, its a tad messy. Apart from that, thumbs up from me.

I love the different painting style. The heavy drybrushing blurs the lines and really gives the impression of motion to your models. Very different from the GW "official" style, and impressive in its own right. Keep up the good work!
"i like to think of playing against my list as being like punching jelly. you put all your effort in but it just moves out of the way and you cause no damage. then your arm is covered in jelly. and the chicks come out and start wrestling in the jelly, and i drink a beer with stone cold steve austin, and we watch the chicks jelly wrestling, and then the slap-bass funk starts wakka chakka wakka wakka woh" -- Spooky, describing Mech Tau
