hi all, just completed the first model - well almost. need to apply micro sol and varnish. Also need to do a base, but the rest is done.

I need to sort out my lighing for taking pics. The red is a lot darker than it looks in the pics. Also the internal colour is not quite so 'yellow'.






I have no more Tau to paint currently so Im moving onto a GD project using a MKI landraider.

Nice stuff mate. I really like the clean nature of the insides and the lens. Is that your first Tau tank?

its good, but it looks so clean and crisp. a little bit of weathering around the engines or somthing would make it so much better imo
I agree, slight weathering especially around the engines would add a nice effect, but like the clean lines you have

Not 100% certain about doing the weathering. Im still thinking about it. If I do its going to be after the first coat of varnish anyway, and as itts still too damn cold too spary varnish for a couple of months I'll wait.


And yes this is my first Tau tank.

Damn nice paint job, very very clean which appeals to me. I agree with the weathering comments though as it would go a long way to making this paint job really stand out.

Seeing as I've only painted Skimmers as collection pieces, I'd say this is a very good paint job, and an excellent scheme. My real experience in tanks is IG, which are perpetually caked in mud and engine exhaust. I don't think a Tau skimmer tank would be that dirty. Maybe some paint loss around the engines, but unless it had some dirt kicked up by landing, it would be clean.

That's really good! I would keep it crisp and clean. You can say its a brand new tank for fluff reasons (if the opponent asks for some strange reason) I wish I could paint this good!

I think you done a great job. I really struggled to step it up a gear and shade and highlight my hammerheads.
