Default Tau colors poll

Just trying to get a feel for what color people like the best. Let me know if there's a big one I've missed.

Red/Tan/Orange (Primary/Secondary/Sept)

I find it interesting what some of your options were, and wonder if some of them will even get votes. Anyway, there was another topic like this not too long ago ... But whatever, technically it's a more open poll, so I think it works to remake it instead.

In my opinion there isn't really any best color scheme but the one I like best is the Sa'cea color scheme.

Me too, starting a Sa'cean army myself. That paint scheme just makes Tau look even more hi-tech and organised. I thought of the Bork'an snow camo, but still went for the Sa'cean colours.

I think that any camouflage colour is very good for the Tau army.

I voted for the first option because I assumed you meant the T'au color schme there, even though their highlights are white.

other

my colors... ones that I momentarily tried to veer away from, but just as quickly went back to, is as follows:

A metallic Enchanted/Ice Blue (my own recipe), with Shining gold center stripe and details, and dark cloth (black w/ codex grey drybrush).

.. I don't know.. maybe I was a Pharaoh in a previous life, but the deep blue/gold thing really talks to something deep inside of me.

I do an "arctic camo" style with green for the undercloth on the fire warriors with blue on the armor. Then over the blue armor I put brown camo swatches. it looks very nice.

I did an artic cammo too. Gray cloth, with White armor, with a blue cammo patter over the white armor. Unimportant but I also used a little red for sept marking, etc. to represent the septs colors, it give a very good contrast.
