Default My Piranah

Hi,

Some pics of my Piranah.
Would be interested to know what you think.
Be gentle ;D

I actually like that very much - well done!

If i were to criticise, i'd say the paint looks a little thick to my eye... dunno why.

Still, you've still ''one-upped'' me, as i haven't even painted my two pirhanas :-[

As a matter of interest, how did you get the armour lines like that... i dunno if ''smooth'' is the right word, but partly the reason i hated by original T'au sept guys was the armour lines, leading me to white Vior'la... and now back to T'au... just because it is a cool scheme.... - and the skin. I like the skin

EDIT: In fact, just tell me how you painted the armour, skin, armour lines, and cloth, and i'll be happy! ;D

I just go slow and steady I guess, mostly :P
But if I get paint in the lines I can sometimes clean it out with fine tweezers before carrying on.
And if that doesn't work I just paint them in and start again.

I'll put some of my first models up, I'm sure they aren't quite as neat.

I know it'll sound bad but if you could take better pics it'd probably look better to many.

It's kinda hard to tell in many spots but he does have a third color in there. It's hard to see, but looks well done.

You can see the colour better in this one.
It's a bit dull in my office and I guess my phone wasn't up to it :P

I think that might be cause I used some old humbrol enamel that I have knocking about, it's pretty old and getting think and gloopy! I like the colours though, so I think i better get some new pots.

I know this is the smallest thing ever, but the part around the drivers optics aren't blacked out like the guy in the rear. Unless it's just that blurry pic.

Anyway good job it looks very clean indeed.

It looks excellent! I agree with others that your paint is just a bit thick, but your lines are very neat and sharp. The camo is very well done.
