mybe if you added sept markings to the helmet and gun it would brake up the overall flat look. and with the gun only being one colour, it would go nicely. and you might wan't to add detail to the lenses like a blue or a red.

Yeah I have to agree that the gun and cloth areas need a bit more of something. The blue and white are excellent however so don't worry about that. Maybe a bit more highlighting on the dark areas, especially the gun. As it stands it looks unfinished.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Like the scheme but another colour on the wpn or a maybe few more highlights might add some contrast to the armour. The suit looks really good mate, works well.

I like it. A nice mix of colours applied well. And it makes a change from the brown and black tau I've been looking at lately.

I recommend some lighter blue-to-white highlights on his armor's flat blue areas. I don't mind the blue actually, but a nice highlight per angle of light will make it shine nicely.

I agree, Those yellow details give it a nice punch of contrast though
The white needs some shading and the black needs some highlights (or drybrushing) but the rest seems pretty good to me.

another sweet job ancient, nice one

The creatures of the Warp have but one trait with which you need concern yourself - their undying contempt for the Emperor. It is your task to quell the rebellion they preach, and the only sure way is to destroy them utterly.
