Default 201st Fleet Force Recon Cadre: A Tau WiP Blog

Hello. If you have read my other post, you will know that I'm starting a Tau army and have finally decided on a color scheme. The fire warriors in the muted tan and then my stealth suits and pathfinders will be in the grey primary color, with tan armor bits and dark red soft armor for the stealth suits. My vehicles will have the grey as the main color with a subtle camouflage pattern in a lighter grey, similar to Sam Fisher's trousers in the first Splinter Cell, but with not as much of the light grey. I'm thinking I might model the pathfinders in some sort of ghillie suit, but I'm not sure what the best way to do that would be.

To start things off I've gotten a battleforce, hammerhead, devilfish, and another firewarrior team. The other FW team and 'Fish are still at home.

Example of the subtle camouflage effect:


The main force's scheme:


Raw materials:


Firewarrior Team 1:


I'll get pictures of the two 'Fish, hammerhead, and commander up here when I finally go home this weekend. Finals end Saturday! ;D

Well I got home and unpacked my camera only to find that the screen got broken during the move, so until I get a hold of another, no more pictures.

Well I finally got some pictures after a bit of a break, although they don't really show much progress. They are from my phone though, so don't expect any quality at all. They're just to get the colors. I have a question about washes. I want to used them to shade my models, and I've heard good things about Devlan Mud, but I don't know if that would be too dark on my carefully mixed base armor color. Would Gryphonne Sepia be better? And what's the best way to go about using these. Should i water them down little?

The new inks are not nearly as dark as you think. Don't worry about it.

Thanks. I decided to go with the Devlan Mud after testing both of them on a spare part. This stuff is awesome. Here are some pictures of my first completed firewarrior:
