In the end I decided not to repaint sniper drone unit and use it for all "light" units with scout/stealth/shroud. I think this 'Maroon' scheme fits nicely with the new stark White/Red/Black scheme of the rest of the Army.
Below is a WIP of a partial unit of Pathfinders that are pulling double duty as my Shadow War Kill team. Included are samples of the three main color schemes of my Tau army. The Pathfinders in the front row are sporting the same color scheme as the Sniper Drone Team.
Following is an itemization of the new color scheme by model/unit for my entire army. There are now a total of 6 color schemes, although two of them are slight variations of the Standard Uniform. The color samples below are broken down into the following categories: Armor Plates/Trim/Under Armor/Markings. Colors are GW unless other wise specified.
|Black + White + Mephiston Red + Fenrisian Grey|
HQ/Team Leader Uniform
|Mephiston Red + White + Black + Fenrisian Grey|
