*Gasp!* he's back!
« on: March 23, 2003, 09:28:07 PM »
Hey! You guys probably don't remember me, or do you?

Any way, I wanted all of your pro opinions on an spiffy electric scheme for my Tau.

There armour would be blue and weapons black. They would have yellow clothes though...

Or should it be Yellow armour with blue clothes? The scheme always looks so spiffy, and I wanted to try it for myself.

Anyone have a say?

I would first test it out on a few fire wariors. I've tried paining yellow and atleast for me the benefit is not worth the efforth. If you are going to stick w/ it I'd advise to start w/ a brown back ground and highlight yellow.

hey, but if you can get it to look good let us know.

I like the idea of doing blue armour. I think a real cool way to paint them up would be to prime in white, then basecoat in a real light blue (electric), then a dark blue overcoat. The light blue would really look sharp in the panel recesses especially with black weapons and the white primer coat will make painting yellow a whole lot easier. Sorta like the pics of some of the Dark Eldar units with the real light green in the recesses and the dark green top coat.
I'm not to found of yellow, it would really focus attention to the pants and not the armour and weapons but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

My FW's are dark blue armor and black undersuit.  The blue really, really looks good and really compliments the Tau.  I don't really have any pics up, except for the following that gives you a good example of the scheme.

No, I didn't draw it, its like a Space Marine chapter template picture so you can test out colour schemes.  Don't remember where I found it though.  I did modify it to create the pathfinder one, but the FW one isn't mine.
