Looks good man, clean and simple. If there was a critique I'd say that the bronze is very bronze, which reveals a lot of bumpiness (like on the Broadside's leg) and the brush strokes, and is not always weathered. But on the table it wont be noticed.

Allow me to be the first to make the obligatory Iron Man reference!

They look awesome, I always like more muted takes on Tau.

I don't even have a Tau army but I want a Riptide. I might have to get one just to paint. Looks awesome!

I think that it's a great Farsight Enclaves scheme. The bronze really works well with the red (like Khorne).

But I'm really starting to hate the scale of the current XV8 kit.


P.S. I'm always of the mind that you should take everything in full measure. If I were the client I'd have bought these for the Fire Warriors, not that it really matters to most people.

....I didn't even notice until you pointed it out. Artistic license?
