I did some more work on my Tau Kill Team today. I got the weapons more or less done.
I also tried something new on the little shields. I tried to get a nice even gradient from one color to another. I want the armor in general to be a little dirty and smudged, but for the areas I would consider to be powered to be gleaming and bright. This includes the little shields as well as the power indicators on the backpacks.
The more I paint these guys, the more they're taking on a colorful anime sort of style. I'm kind of digging it.
I also colored in some armor panels with The Fang (old Shadow Grey) and highlighted with whatever the next color up is. I'm not entirely sure if everything looks appropriate as I'm colorblind! haha. I pretty much just stick to the basics and match highlights to bases. The new GW paint line is spectacular for people like me. Everything lines up together really well and the paints tend to come in three color blocks.
And I remembered to color in the bare arm dude's arm. Looks much better to me now.
Let me know what you think. I think you can leave comments. If not, send an email to email@example.com.
