A bodygaurd designation would be pretty sweet as would a mark to show that a unit is bonded.

I am gonna have to make these additions to my army!

Do you have markings for leaders of a tank squadron? Or does that just use the basic rank markings?

Also for the Railhead/Ionhead where should the markings go for them? I imagine on the turret somewhere for swap-ability but I am curious as to your thoughts.
Are you ok with others doing this as well? Since I am just painting up the first of my Tau it is a perfect time to get on board with this if I can get a good method together for application.
Kles'ro wrote:Very good work overall. I just have two comments to make.
1. I don't think whether they are bonded or not is represented in the rank paint. IIRC, it is represented by the leader carrying the bonding knife and/ or a knife stenciled in on the teams armor.
2. What happens when you get to multiple crisis teams? Or more than 2 Firewarrior teams? I think it could begin to get pretty extensive once you get to that level.
