Nice. :)
I like the way you've painted the metal..
Maybe some more colors on details like eyes and stuff?
Keep up!

Ell, great start and welcome to the hobby.
Your models and paint scheme look quite good but with regards to technique, a few polite suggestions.
Your paint is uneven and blotchy. This mostly shows on your tau. If you thin down the paint a little and use more than just one coat it will come out looking a lot cleaner on the model. Though slower it makes the world of difference, especially when going over a black undercoat.
Also with all your paint jobs try and really concentrate on 'painting between the lines'. A lot of little fiddly bits are running over where your brush has got astray.
The best thing though is practice. Your chaos force is looking real nice with a great scheme that works. Neaten up your painting and it will take all models up a notch.

Again, no offence but this is the advice I found most as a lot of my models when I started looked suspiciously like your tau, though back then the tau didn't exist, and it was my Blood angels that needed the second coat.

Good luck and may paint flow from your brush like your favourite beer from it's bottle.

Hi All,

Have not been able to post anymore on the log as I forgot my password. But in the time I spent waiting for that email with it I paint some stuff!

First off I've found my kroot (painted half a dozen while waiting)
