i cant see much that i can crit'. But 1 thing is try not too over do you highlighting. and progress with colours in terms of grade (shades) some colours stand out far too much on others (your FW face)

I love the conversion on the FW leader, exccept his face is over highlighted. Overall everything looks great. (I love the kroot colors!)

I think the models look great. Something different from the normal tau colors.

They look great! The only thing I could say is to perhaps take everything down a bit in terms of intensity for your paintint to make transitions a bit more subtle, however, I like very striking highlights on Tau, so I'd say to just keep it up!

Love the Brave-Heart Kroot

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

Realy cool paint scheme, the intensity and contrast has been said before but it does give an origional appeal. The brown Fire Warriors head is an odd deviation from normal Tau colours, was it intended to be cameo, mutation, burn damage or something new? Cool look anyway.

No it isn't burned or a mutation.... He simply has different skin color....like human has...
I have seen blu skin Tau or grey skin Tau...I wanted a color just different from the clothing...i could chose green or brown and i choose brown becouse i think is more "real".
Thank for all comments guys.....keep it up 8) O0 8) O0 8)
