Default Shas'o Rama's Hammerhead

I borrowed the scheme from Shas'el Tael using my army's colors,

Thanks man, your work is inspirational* ( and far better than I will ever do )

I like it! Very crisp.

And though I know the insignia on the entryways are from the transfer sheet, they seem to go pretty well with the color scheme. Like warm foresty colors and a rising sun. Hard to explain, I suppose.

Keep it up! My matte realism-fu is on the rise, but I need to practice making things look machined, shiny, and perfect like they're off the assembly line ^^

And hey, this inspires me to try for it with my next skimmer.

Very nice.

Is that a Seeker Missle mounded by the nose? When I get around to including Seekers in my army, I'm considering making them seperate from the vehicle (like a Gun Drone on a Devilfish) so I can just set the missle on the hull and remove it after the missle's been fired.

I have it mounted with a rare-earth magnet to be removed after firing.
Since it is mounted underneath it was easy to hide the magnet , all it takes is a tiny piece of metal on the back of the missle- the magnet is glued on the hull behind it *

like so...

Looks really good, though some more details would bring the score up a bit IMO. Like an extra color to make some contrasts..

I like it, but the larger, lighter areas are a little dull.

I agree GM Seto, it's my 1st Tau vehicle and the original plan called for airbrushed camo swatches over the bright areas( an abandoned plan ). It's far from perfect and too bright and yellowy but the picture makes it look much brighter than it is.

Hum, swacths would look good. It would give it personality.

Cheers! Rama, I'm especially delighted as you just painted the exact panelling scheme I was wondering about for my new Devilfish. Nose panel and the thruster top panels.

Now that I see it looks cool, I'm going to have to do it

About the 'far better..' line, don't make me whip out the dodgy Planet of the Apes meets the Imperial Guard trooper I did when I intially started painting, I have made people weep at the sight of it. > :'(

I keep painting and looking at new ideas and styles to learn more. Just like what you did with me in regards to the panels and now I'm going to do to you since I can see it looks nifty :P
