Default Camo Scheme

Hey just got my first box of fire warriors for my new tau (long time away from them )

Im looking for some advice on the best camoflague scheme i should use.

The world where they hail from is artic, it only has pure sunlight for 10 days out of 50. The rest of the time it is a half light situation. Because of the distance from the nearest sun and lack of pure sunlight the planet is covered in snow. Fluff wise all of my army that can, will have anything that can benifit in darkness eg blacksun filters

Therefore i need an ideas for a snow camo that doubles as a night camo, im thinking greys, whites and blacks ???

Any ideas ???
I realise that it is very hard to make this work as white obviously stands out more in darkness :P

If I was doing a winter/snow scheme, especially for a night-fighting army, I'd use some blues. Snow looks a little blue-ish at night time.

I'm thinking maybe white armor with blue patches and gray fatigues. Or white armor with gray patches and black fatigues. I don't really know a lot about camouflage though.

Here is a link from the GW that has IG in snow/ice world camo I think this would work well with your cadre if they are to bright try toning them down with codex gray or one of the darker blues

Thanks for this, i didn't know snow looked blue at night, i don't see it very often being Britain :P

I am planning on painting white fatigues with ice blue triangles (if you have ever seen a German SS WW2 soldier in winter you will know what i mean) a bit like the IG in that link
The armour i am going to paint black and deep blue on the different sections of armour eg. each plate will be alternative colours.

I will have a test piece up soon

Yes on most occasions, there are however certain variants. I have seen in the past a uniform which is exactly as i described sadly i cant find an example



I plan on using either the top right or bottom right with different colours.

I have to say you've inspired me to try out camo on my pathfinder (which are still very W.I.P)

Yes any ways after trying a test piece i realised that white fatigues don't really look good for me so I'm going black fatigues with the white and ice blue camo on armour
