My first troop unit. In my defense, I was painting up this squad in a light blue, to compliment my Ultramarine army. I have decided to paint my Tau army Sybarite Green. Hopefully the light blue will be accepted as a base coat.

I'll allow it.

But only because you are using a still image from Loony Tunes as your avatar!

Next case!

I am painting my Tau in a teal base, with orange and blue highlights. The colors I've chosen are inspired by the weapons manufacturer Maliwan from the video game Borderlands.


Image



I used my airbrush to re-based my Tau squad without striping the miniatures. I was unsure if the miniatures would lose detail, but they ended up with a smooth finish without loss of detail.


Image


The main colors were added using my airbrush, and details were picked up with regular brushes.

Your Tau have beauty and grit. A great combo. I think your color balance is looking really good. you could play with it, but I think it may be just right.
