Default What colour am I seeing?

Hi Guyz,

I suppose that this one is for those fortunate Tau Commanders that have got the new Battle plans (new Codex).

I have seen that the colour scheme for the Sept/System of Sa’cea is either a grey camouflage or a blue camouflage. I was hoping that maybe the GW team had put the actual colour scheme in the new codex.

If so could somebody who has the new codex tell me what the colours are for Sa’cea, or, if anybody knows what the colours are could they let me know.

I have always based all my fantasy armies on a green colour scheme but for 40k I wanted a different colour; and I quite like the look of the Sa’cea colours.

So Guyz, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers…… ;D ;D ;D ;D

I play Sa'cea but just invented my own colour scheme. Tau aren't the kind of race to doggedly stick with the same colour all the time. They would adapt there colour scheme depending on where they were fighting.

That said, my Tau are Brown/Yellow and Purple. I shudder to think of what kind of world would have brown and purple scenery!

Sa'cea is by far the coolest sept. We are honourable, disciplined, and have tons of guns!

D'yanoi are considered backward
Ksi'm'yen are considered lucky and users of 'opportunistic subterfuge'

Don't think any sept matches all your needs so you could always make up your own.

Guyz,

I didn't plan to strictly keep to a Septs' colour scheme that GW came up with, and I totally agree with you Faolin, that they would differ in uniform colour, dependant on the area they where fighting in.

It is just that, I think the colour scheme is really smart. It is very difficult to see what colours have been used in WD315, thats why I was begging, pleading and grovelling on my knees to see if it was written in the new codex (I wanted to start painting up some Fire Warriors before I got the army box set). Chris has said that it what it says in the book (I assume he means the new codex; please tell me this is true Chris).

However I have now found another colour scheme that I like it is the one that Forge World have used on the Sky Ray conversion Kit (this is the web address so you can see):....

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/campion.htm

......so now, I dont really know what colour to go with. The green would be rather hard to pick up on the armour because the cloth/underclothing will be black.

Well I will have to wait and see; I am sure I will change my mind again before my Fire Warrior models arrive.

Thanks for any help though and please can somebody confirm what Chris told me in the first reply to this thread.

Cheers Guyz
