Default Has anyone seen forest-themed Tau camo?

I thought that I'd like to make my tau army(which I just startted to collect) forest/summer themed, since I hate those Blue and yellow color themes... Could anyone give me any advise how this should be done.

PS. Pics would be good for this...

check out the camo section on gamesworkhop's imperial guard thing... err:

this is probably easier:

I find the 2 contrasting block colors+ hair line stripe of a 3rd color to work really well.

Some of the Fantasy Wood Elf schemes might bear some study as well.

D'Yanoi have armour the colours of dark greens and tan. They are more 'natural' than other Tau in my opinion.

Wow, our schemes are very close!

For my camo:
Black Triangles with codex grey dots at the vertex
Rotting Fleash triangles with camo green dots at the vertex
Desert Yellow Triangles with bleached bone dots at the vertex
over a catachan base coat. Check out my threrad in Showcase for pics.

Hope it helped

On the U.S. Games Workshop site it features how to model some Farsight Enclave Models. I think, with some proper modifications, that it could be turned into a forest-themed army. Here is the link: http://us.games-workshop.com/games/4...ns/default.htm
