Tau Firewarrior by lycorda Tau Firewarrior by lycorda
It's been a while since I last colored anything with my wacom ( I'm spending way to much time on 3d art )
anyway, I dont sit still though, I sketch like mad ( got a whole booklet full of em! ) but decided that this one simply needed color! its not the best paintjob but heh, im a rookie at this stuff, perhaps in time ill grow better:)

comments appriciated!

/edit: I reworked it, adding more dramatic lighting to it...enjoy:)

Firewarriors are the only squads that I've known to be able to effectivly take out a larger number of space marines =\ They are badass and this picture shows it too. Good job :+fav:

Aha! A Fire Warrior~

Very good! The pulse blast really adds a kick. Shas'el! Wow, he's just one rank below commander! ^^

Cool fire warrior. And for once the gun doesn't look to long or too huge to carry by a soldier. Good job

Now that is a beautiful fire warrior. The release of the new Tau Empire Codex is getting me all psyched up. then i see this work, and I want to just completely rebuild my entire force to emulate this sort of shock troop look. Beautiful.

Haha, Yeah me 2, my current tau are white with red details...great for urban, but totally in conflict with the tau style of warfare and storyline:P

Gragh, Tau, brings back bad memories (Tau-6, My Space Marines-0)
They do have some very cool stuff though, and this kind of art gives them justice. I really like it, amazing detail, looks like a true Shas'ui should!
They get too many good guns too cheaply... -_-;

Excellant work man, love the colouring combination, I know it has a rough look to it but might want to clean up some of the lining. Fantastic work!

Nice robotech influence here. You should use this, make it more sinister, and put it up for Central Conflict...the asian SWAT team members or something.
