    Just finished 2 more skimmers, one more PF-dedicated 'Fish for THESE on the way. Strongly considering a Tom Schadle Catfish conversion for it...

    Anywho, thanks for looking...C&C always welcomed.

    Cool, I like the "battle damage." How did you pull that off?

    Very nice job you have done there... I like the painting scheme which is not as many Tau armies out there... which is the standard GW pattern...

    The battle damage is impressing and I think you have used both highlighting and drybrushing to the affected areas of the vehicle. Also I like the squad you have made as they really look dynamic enough and their bases are very nice made...

    Keep up the good work and the picture posting!
    Thanks to all the people showing faith in me

    they look good! Like the other said, the battle damage and the paint scheme sets them apart. Good job.

    The paint scheme is tasty, execution is nice, the weathering and highlights are very very nice. I think that the exhaust markings and weathering set these above usual Tau skimmers that I have seen. Very nice work!

    Well done!

    I use a small drybrush to make sweeping streaks of very dark grey, and top it with a stippling technique, which is easy as pie...using the same brush, I dab on black on the fringes of the smoke effect. The brown dirt is also drybrushed with the same small brush in a sweeping pattern from front to back. Add a few random thin black streaks with a touch of silver on the middle and there you have it.



    The damage on the flat surface of the orange-nosed 'Fish is the same technique but with an asterisk(*) pattern of silver on the center.

    Thanks for all comments!
