Having recently been officially ranked as the 4th slowest painter on the planet, I'm happy to finally be able to post my a few of my completed suits. C&C appreciated as always.
"Crisis Suits are typically deployed in either a team of three, called a Ta'ro'cha by the Tau, or a single suit, called a Monat."

I think your Crisis team looks great. I can see why you are ranked as a slow painter your models are very well painted. It is always alright to take as long as you want when you get good results. I especially like how you have achieved the battle damage and look of general wear and tear on them without compromising the crispness of the painting.
I am also a slow painter, although my models don't come out nearly as nice as those. Specifically I really like the battle damage on that one suit - the one with the damage on his chest. Do you have any more pictures? I looked at the photobucket pictre and you have a lot more models but some of them are dark or out of focus... I searched photobucket for a way to look at the rest of your album but alas I am not photobucket saavy :cry: more pics please?
PS. How do you keep your suits from breaking at the feet? My friend plays Tau and somehow at least one of his suits breaks per game. He doesn't even have them in such precarious positions as you do. Are you just very careful with them? Thanks!

Send me a hello if you remember me.
Very cool stuff. I really like your attention to details and the way you pose your figures. They are very dynamic and full of action. Great job!

Thanks for all commenst guys!
I'm in the process of shooting more pics...I'm actually going to do a some scenes with my suits and my Kroot Carnivores for contrast. Give me about a week and you'll have some better pics, I promise. Here's one quickie I shot:
All of my suits are pinned at the ankle. I first cut off the ankle ball, then drill a tiny hole in the bottom of the leg and in the ball, and then pin them back together. That little ball joint is the weak spot. Then, once the ball is cemented into the foot, the whole ankle joint is solid. When I create a pose, I also pin them to the base with a bigger pin that runs well into the "hoof", and also glue them to the base with PV as well.
Not indestructible, but pretty sturdy. Hope this helps.
Those last 2 you've posted looks great I like the heads
I shall not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will allow it to pass over and through me. And when the fear has passed I will turn the inner eye to see its path. There will be nothing. Only I will remain.
Just chyming in to give my compliments to your work. The color scheme is beautiful, especially the highlights. It takes some serious patience for painting so may suits, but it's surely paid off.
The only thing that didn't work for me is the battle damage. Perhaps it's the images, but I was torn between thinking the damage was well done and thinking that it didn't look realistic on the models.

I'm very impressed. They are worth the time. GW doesn't paint their models anywhere near this quality. I never liked those models until I see what you've done with them. Now I see that they have a potential far beyond what GW shows us.
Keep up the good, slow work.
A very bold and smooth paintjob, move over 'Eavy Metal!
