Default Colors ?

looking at the new Tau Codex I see the heavy armour (hammerhead, skyray...)with a new color scheme and pattern.

2 questions...


1.) Any great ideas on how to paint this color scheme (3 color tan) and don't say free-hand as I can barely draw a circle (artistically challenged)

2.) What are the three colors - (names please)

Thx for your help...in advance.

On pg 59 of the new codex many of the paint scheme colors are listed. Try that first. After that try the Hobby section here at TO.

With the exception of vehicle camo methods, you can find the colors and technique online.

I was thinking of doing the tape off thing and it seems you agree. I still have not found lisitngs anyware that states the tanks colors...

Anyone of you experts know this >?

Hey TIBM thanks, that make two of the three colors.

In the new codex, they now paint with three colors. The old heavy equip is one color with a drybrush second. Ont he new equip in the new codex, its a completly different paint scheme that now uses 3 colors with no drybrushing.

I would assume two of the three colors are the same as the old equip. But, still missing the third color...

thx!

Those are the two colors. They just highlight or dry brush with Chaos Black or White mixed in.
