[gal_img]1550[/gal_img]When I decided to build a Tau army, deciding what I wanted wasn't difficult. It was the colour scheme that was the tricky part. Eventually (after much deliberation) I decided to go with an urban snow camouflage feel. Firstly I basecoated the models with Chaos Black.I then painted the armour in Enchanted Blue and highlighted the edges with Ice Blue. With the piranha design I simply painted Ice Blue patterns over the ship and edged it off with Skull White.To distinguish the Commanders I painted various armour parts in Skull White.To add variation to the designs I used Regal Blue on the rifle.Any metal areas (especially on the Crisis Suit) I used Boltgun Metal as the base colour and highlighted it in Chainmail.Once the armour was painted, I went back over any areas with Chaos Black to neaten the models up.For the Stealth Suit, I used mainly Regal Blue to keep the slick look. And again, edged the armour in Ice Blue.For the bases I used polystyrene for the rocks and snow flock.Here are some of my models once I had finished them... Keep in mind the Fire Warrior squad (above) aren't finished as of yet.[gal_img]1551[/gal_img]Gallery image
