Default New Tau army

I've narrowed down my paintscheme to two options. A graveyard earth armor/regal blue cloth OR bestialbrown-bleached bone armor/ black cloth. Obviously these are the base colors and will be shaded up to slightly lighter colors. I'm gonna try and get a test model of each scheme done tonight and post them so I can get some oppinions.

Think bruno rizzo's hunter cadre. That's what I'm going for with that paint scheme but I'll probably not do the battle damage like he does.

The stupid mailman still hasn't brought me the models yet. If they aren't here tommorrow I may go buy a box of firewarriors.

I also don't know what skin color I want so I may try one shadow grey base color and one codex grey and see which I like best.

I want to stay away from black armor cause my space marines have black armor. I need a break from painting much of anything black. Although black cloth won't be that bad simply cause it's easier to achieve nice highlights on black cloth rather than armor.
