Default Which do you you prefer, helmets or not?

I was just wondering what all you Tau players prefered. Helmets or not. I know I like helmets becaus ethey are easier to paint. I was never one for painting faces and hair. i had an old space marine sergeant without the helmet. He looked horrible. (or I'm just a bad painter. I prefer the former) Thanks all.

I like the helmets cos they make the force more homogenous and unified.

I like helmets.

They just fit in better with the rest of the model. And who would not wear a helmet on the battlefield anyway?

(That said, I still use non - helmets)

Helmets, but I sometimes use non-helmets to use on Shas'ui Team Leaders, just to tell them apart.

Helmets. Anybody (especially a leader) that takes his helm off deservies to die.

I only have one model without a helm and thats only because he is coming out of the battlesuit.

Never look back at what you have done. If you do you might not see the tree in front of you.

My only model without a helmet is a converted medic rather than a Shas'Ui - if you think you are about to die, you want to see the face of the friend not some optical scanners.

helmet for soldiers, no helmet for leaders. usually HQ choices are the only ones without helmets in my armies, since the only HQ is crisis suits that means my army is all helmets.(except kroot and gue'la)

Helmets deffinetly, I only have 5 models without helmets. 4 are put together from the tank crew man so no helmet there. The 5th is the shas'ui of one of my squads, makes it easier to tell him apart.
