Default Tau Painting

so this might be a stupid question, but does anyone know what color(s) are used in painting the skin of Tau Fire Warriors and/or Etherials?


i appologize if this is not the place for this questions (i couldn't decide if it was more appropriate for it to be here or in the Tau section, but since this is painting...).

I use Chaos Black/Shadow Grey mix, high light by adding more shadow grey until it's pure shadow grey. To highlight this, add Elf Flesh to the Shadow Grey. \

There you go, Tau flesh! Good luck.

Depends what color you want.

The normal would be something like what Melkor said. You can change it around depending on what shade you want

I have not done flesh yet. But, I am going to use a shadow grey mixed with a tad of Chaos Black.

Armour is another thing to think about. Just to let you know.

What I've used in the past is a mix of three parts Ice Blue and one part Shadow Grey. I think it gives them a very nice, full blue.
