Not really fond of the colors, and they need a bit more highlightning IMO

No, Mein!!!

The color scheme is excellent, and the paint job is nice and clean...wish we had closer pictures, so we could see some detailed shots, but overall, I likey!

Make more...schnell!!

I actually really like the colours and style on the first 2 shots of the FW. I think, despite not having an abundance of highlights, it looks like a really solid tabletop model. And the colours looks nice too, very IG in style, which IMHO fits Tau like a glove.

The drone looks a bit weird though - any reason its done half in one scheme and half in another?

ich find das farbschema geil, aber es wäre gut wenn du etwas wasser in deine farbe mixst, und etwas aktzentuieren wäre ziemlich cool

so i think nobody have understood me now so now in english:

i like the color scheme very much, but it would be better if you mix some water in your paints, and some highlighting would be very cool.

I like 'em. The scheme is good, and it's tidy.

I don't like the drone though. The half-half thing there doesn't look good.

Nicely based, suitable colours that work well, clean and tidy painting! Don't be so hard on yourself!

One thing Iwould say is that I don't think the brown skin on the Tau really works...they have blue flesh, it would look more 'Tau-ish' I think, which is a feeling you need to maintain with an IG colour scheme!

All the same they are painted to a good standard and I would certainly like to see tanks and battlesuits with the scheme!
