Many thanx Big D

if you check out the gallery you can see pics of my H\'Th sept army, the theme is basic, and easy to paint, but produces a good effect for the whole army. The gallery is a good place to look for suggestions in fact.

I play Tau but I\'m really boring and stick to the yellow/brown T\'au Sept colour scheme.

But if you are thinking of green - here some pics from the US GW site that might give you some inspiration:

Well i paint my Tau green and the way i do it is like this.

Armor: Catachan Geen
Cloth: Bestial Brown
Sept Colour: Midnight Blue

Then i just ink it with brown ink and you get a dark dirtyish shade. Looks pretty good, maby ill post pics later.

Adders thats not boring thats the nicest looking colour scheme for tau!!!

ive never liked tau in green, it just doesnt seem to suit them...blue does if done right, so does red

but generally browns and sandy tones look the best

black/dark grey also look nice if done right

I disagree, green can look really good on tau if you do the right combo.

and I loathe the yellow and brown colour scheme, it really is just a matterr of what you like! Just keep looking until you find the colour scheme that matches for you! I fell in love with the white over black colour scheme when I opened the hobby section of the old codex!
