I saw Sean's Tau over on L33tLike.us and fell in love with his paint scheme! So much so in fact, that I am considering re-painting my Tau is that vein. Following is a side-by-side comparison of a proof of concept next to my current paint scheme.
|Sometimes my phone does a much better job than my|
camera... this is one of those cases!
That is what crippled my Space Marines--I paint up 40 models; Come back years later and tweak the scheme/improve my technique; Re-do half of the previously painted figures instead of painting new ones!
I do have a few Tau that will not be repainted (or at least mostly). They are my Sniper & Drones Team. I came up with an alt scheme to the "brown/tan" to indicate stealth. It is a dark red and I think they will fit in well with the new scheme.
Oh yeah! Today is my Birthday!! Last week I sold some Magic: the Gathering cards (about $400 worth) to fund a small birthday shopping spree. My Tau got a few reinforcements. After everything comes in, I will share my pile of loot with you.
