Default My Devilfish

Overall i like it, but i know fine well its not great, the white could do with more work and highlighting. But i felt my tau were being neglected and so i painted this up. Enjoy!

Did you do a Black base coat?

I really hate it as a base when you try to do white over it. It always looked dirty to me.


What sept is this? Homebrew?

Yeah DIY, havent thought up much BG for it, which is odd for me. Since thats what i do the first thing, so i can plan out my army. I would use white but ive never had a good runnings with it, my eldar army in the trading section is why i dont like using white undercoats, it would be a much better looking army.

I've been told (I also believe now) that brown is the best undercoat.

Actually your scheme isnt that far off from mine. I black base coat, but then spray over it with some grey so that the black stays in the dark areas and the grey saves time building up to the white. Ive posted some of them before but you might want to check this out:
