Hm.....Funky. But why isn't this one painted with the codex colour. Maybe they are too bored with that scheme......

Pretty cool, but the painting is a little...well, not what I expected.

I like the scheme! It is shadow grey, no? Gives me ideas for my army coming along.... Yea... perhaps.

Very neat looking ship, the missile rack is kind of awkward though.

Dangit! I just changed my scheme to Shadow Grey in hopes of being at least partially original. Well, I've already got half my army painted, so no going back.

The Skyray would be sweet if paired with a Pathfinder squad or two. I hope it isn't too expensive (pointswise), because missiles are only S7... you could take an ion cannon instead. Or even better, a railgun.

You got that backwards, ion cannon str7 missles str8. I also belive the skyray paints its own targets. But with the new codex that could change, but not what were hearing.

Yesh. I think that's actually a new secondary scheme for the tau. I got something very similar to it by using a medium grey on a black background.... Looks pretty cool, but i would have added more grey and black areas.

Reminds me of the (now long gone)'shadow grey' paint.
