Default Just a quickie question about the men of tanith

With winter assault out and all, I thought, why not have my guardsmen look like tanith, the coolest guardsmen ever? (If you think there's cooler, gimme name +color scheme)

However, I have no clue as to how to color the tanith 1st. Any help as to how they look would be appreciated, I've already googled for images, no such luck.

I am assuming you are talking about the Tanith First and Only (Gaunts Ghosts)

Heres some links:

There is no cooler regiment than the Ghosts.

Put simply, matt black uniform with pale skin, and if you're good enough at fine detail then blue eyes as well.

The reason they weren't in Winter Assault is that it really doesn't suit them; they aren't an army you can cannon-fodder into the enemy lines time and again.

So I do pure black armor with black undercloathes, and blue eyes? Pretty neat.

Exactly, there are only around 1500 Tanith left plus about the same of Verghastites.

Less now, I'm guessing. Besides, a whole army that can inflitrate? Far too deadly in DoW.

Sorry guys, just thought it would be a neat army to use in winter assault multiplayer. I wasn't really concerned about the fact that they'd never fight in a winter battlefield, just that they would be a neat army to use. I assume all black clothes/armor, and leave it at that.

We never said they didn't fight in Winter environments, we said they are rare. I tend to burn through 100+ Marines in DoW multiplayer, which is 1/10th of the Chapter. Guard take much higher casualties than that... yet Tanith do not have much larger numbers.
