So I recently got back into 40k, and after gaining a ridiculous amount of experience by completely painting everything in my Warmachine Khador army, I decided it was time to give the Tau a new coat of paint for a new start to my favorite love/hate game.
Forgive the camera work- it's a good camera, but it was clearly not designed for the size of these miniatures.
Did some minor conversion work with the Fireblade, mainly because the original's head looked like it was trying to retreat into his chest like a turtle. That and the pose. "HEY, GUYS I FOUND A KNIFE- WHICH ONE OF YOU MORONS WAS ACTUALLY PLANNING ON USING THIS THING?"
And then Darkstrider.
I love his model, and I like to hope I'm pretty decent at painting now, but I think my color palette is too homogenous and it wound up giving him a washed out look. I'm thinking of going with a more saturated purple next time and maybe incorporating some red into it, just to give it all a bit more vibrancy.
Thoughts on the miniatures or the colorscheme in general? They're the only ones I've painted so far, so if there was ever a time for paint scheme evaluation, now would be the time!
