That looks really good, i especially like the glow effects on the tanks. And the camo also looks cool, first time i see it on a Tau army.


No problem, I'll give you a 100% increase in pay effective immediately and retroactive to 1999.

Big fan of that first Devilfish and the drones that go with it. I looks like it's flying around on a rainy, muddy night, which is a really cool effect.

I've always said that the Tau are one of the best armies to work with camo, and here's the proof!

I'm also a big fan of the blue glow on your Devilfish and Hammerhead.

...Although the fluff says that a Railgun is supposed to fire a hyper-velocity solid slug, not some sort of blue energy beam like in the Dawn of War computer game, or the "beam of incandescent light" from the Fire Caste novel (don't have a page number as it's an ebook - 73% of the way in though).  I'm a bit particular about this kind of thing - probably comes from being an engineer.

Blue glow is still cool though.

Hamid: What's that?
Rambo: It's blue light.
Hamid: What does it do?
Rambo: It turns blue.

Wow I am an idiot, I have an airbrush but have rarely used it and never thought of using it for my models. What kind/brand of paint do you use wiggus? I have some paints that would work but can't recall were I bought them. Also any techniques for using the airbrush you would be willing to share would be much appreciated.

GW paints at the moment mate but i tend to use 1.1.1 paint thinner water, all i can suggest is watch as many you tube videos as you can and invest in masking tapes worth its weight in gold
