Cool little bots. Maharg is right, water can be enough in a lot of situations. A wet pallette can help keep the paint flowing, too. For really thinning the paint you will probably want a medium of some kind, either the water/Future mix or a clear acrylic medium so the color does not get too washed out.

Nice work Flapjack.

As mentioned, you can get a nice smooth finish on Tau without any special mediums. Just look at my Tau painting log, all painted with just paint and water.

Cheers,

thanks guys.

I'll look into a wet palette, nice tip Youwashock.

I've taken another look at your tau Captain Brown. Great, neat stuff. Classic T'au are always and eye pleaser.

I've finished painting the rest of the gun drones. I've also painted up a flamethrower team for my bolt action germans. fun little break from the tau stuff. I'm quite happy with how the flames on little Hans turned out.

Two updates in one weekend eh?

Got some work done on a piranha, body is almost finished. Just some details and it's on to the crew. Still need to work on thinning. Bought some vallejo mat medium so hope that helps.

Wow, quite the collection of interesting projects going on here. I like the Tau colors of gold, white and teal. I haven't seen that scheme before.
