Default New Tau Stealth Team

My next models to buy are 3 more stealth suits so i can field a team of 6 on the battlefield. I want to really make these guys look special as i love the models in the first place. So far the ones i have made are just assembled and undercoated black....i want fairly dark colours. One main dark colour then possibly a lighter one for detail and highlighting, all ideas very welcome

some colour schemes i have thought about copying though -

generally though i dont want ot be sucke dinto the codex colours, the browns and blacks. I still need a dark main colour but i was thinking a dark blue/purple?

That purple and yellow kick ass
It would take a lot of coats to get the colour that even though

yes I have, thats why I warned you, we are not harlequins, leave the odd colours to them ^-^.

I'd say black, and bleachedbone, maybe just a couple of panels bone, or for a striking contrast (the steath camo will cover it ^-^) do black unndersuit and bone armour, very striking contrast.

black undersuit and bone armour eh? yes i agree very striking, perhaps some blood red detailing (tau symbol, helmet etc.) as well.

Also 1) what would you advise me is the best to way to distinguish the shas'ui from the others?
2) weapon colours, still the same scheme?
3) and finally what colour undercoat for these contrasting colours on my models? i was thinknig a codex grey?

That sounds good to me. I'm not the best of painters but I can appreciate good work and ideas when I see them...

I'd say say perhaps to distinguish a Shas'ui - a differently coloured helmet and weapon and perhaps a broad stripe of colour running across his armour...
Just a thought ;D

Codex grey sounds fine to me.

i wouldnt want soemthign as obvious as a braod stripe on a stealth suit, however i may use that for crisis, a bit too fiddly and unorthodox for my steleaths methinks! ill probably just go with a bleached bone helmet instead!

Actually rooting through my paints i have found i dont have any bleached bone! so would there be a better colour to go with the black undersuit seeing as i will be buying some more paints soon anyway? or should i just stick with bleached bone...any pictures to help with similar colours/scheme would be great!
