I really like the Aun, reminds me of some swamp king or something rather. The mounted kroot was a good idea.

Very solid!

Other than the evidence of brush strokes in places (thinner paints helm with that, but a spraygun is just awesome) they're very good.

I'd say some of the models are begging for washes though (the ethereal in particular).

I agree with Henners91 the robes on Aun'va could use a little thraka green to add depth to the model.

I like these. Tau usually have an over the top kind of look to them, but your dark green/olive drab color choices make them look more down to earth. Of course, its also reminiscent of camo color schemes, which just goes to reinforce the 'real, serious military' look. It's good stuff. If you DO like the more serious aspect, then I might recommend an ambitious converting project if you're up to it. The two half-naked Aun kind of detract from that serious feel I was talking about. They might be better served with some kind of clothing. I especially like the coloration on the battlesuits, though. You've got a good grasp of complementary coloration.

A watered down bit of Chaos Black can never go amiss if you're looking for something slight.

His face definitely needs toning of sorts, not sure what I'd recommend for that as I've never painted Tau skin before.

my only complaint would be that the ethereals need a bit more definition on there collars o.o

hmm, thats worth considering. Maybe replace their torsos with Fire Warrior torsos?

Washes might help out a little bit. Highlighting would definitely make these boys pop though.

I like your two main colors. I'm wondering if there's a spot color that would accent your current paint job well. Good job though!

Nice forest camo look, something don't often see with Tau. Maybe wash to give it a more detailed look.

More DAKKA - the only true answer to any question.
