I found your frst models really good looking, but the Riptide kicks ass! Great work there, the light effects are very neat and the base is fantastic!

I only wish the red on your models would pop more.

I will play anything really, sad to say I dont play much cities of death, I make sure the brush has a good amount of water on especially with paints like red, white, etc that are hard to do on there own, Dies Irae, I am planning on revisiting them all and putting some weathering effect onto them so I will take that point onboard and see if I can make the sept markings pop out more somehow. Cheers all

Thought I would dig these out and put them up as well, my stealth team and a picture of the Army so far, you may be able to see some shield drones done and a third FW squad as well, there not much different than the others so I haven't take separate pictures of these.

I hate to say that, but I really don't like your Stealths. I perfectly understand what you were aiming for with the "going in/out of stealth mode" effect, but the fact that you draw a line between a camouflage and another camouflage really kills it.
Stealth suits don't wear the same colours as the rest of the army typically: they don't need it. Other Tau units have uniform that help them blend in the battlefield, Stealth suits have their active camo for that and therefore usually wear dark brown / black armours.

So if you can I would honestly advise you to repaint the parts of your suits that are off-camo in another colour, to clearly show a contrast between the two areas.

Looks great I like the bases, but the white missiles probably blind their targets when the see them.

Personally i think the Stealth Suits work well, it's always nice seeing the active camo idea being used. As they have a cloaking feild you can paint them whatever colors you want really.

Not sure if that was the plan, but those stealth suits look very "Soviet" with the colour scheme
