Tau Hammerhead Redo

I wasn’t really enthused about the way my Hammerhead was turning out.  It seemed just a little too plain, and I didn’t really know how to spice it up, so I took a look through the codex for some inspiration.  In there I found a sample camouflage pattern that I thought would go well.  The pattern in the book was the same red and gray scheme that I had been working with.  Well, started painting it last night and I think it is coming along quite nicely.  The lines could be a little cleaner, and I’m thinking of getting an airbrush to try and make things go a little easier.  Anyway, here’s the picture of the progress so far, sorry about the quality of the picture, I am in the Twin Cities for work and the only camera I have is my phone.

WIP: Tau Hammerhead

I started work on my first Tau Hammerhead tank tonight.  The army will be primarily red with light gray on parts.  I like how the colors are coming out, but it just seems kind of plain right now.  There are plenty of details that still need to be picked out, but on the whole, there just seems to be something lacking.  I’ve done the camouflage stippling on my Eldar, and I don’t really want to do the same thing on the Tau.  I want something to really make the tanks look distinct, but I’m not sure what.

Anyways, here’s the pics of the progress so far.
