Default What Works Better?

In the opinion of the esteemed members of this fine website; what's the best way to do black lining on Tau vehicles?

I have a Sigma Micron pen that works fine for the rank and file Firewarriors, but it doesn't seem to do the job on the tank I'm working on.

Should I use ink, watered down paint, or just try to find a really fine sharpie marker?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Following along with execution and Faol's advise Ink, or Chaos Black with Liquitext Medium thinner. I have done this with Eldar Falcons (Very similar to Tau armor lines) but I use an 18/0 brush.
