Get your codex out! :P

There aren't many septs that the codex details on. Seven that it actually shows colour schemes for.

I'd suggest to just create your own, it allows for far more customisation with fluff and colour schemes.

If you don't want to do that, google

Those that the codex does detail on (with sept colours) are...

(Name) - (Sept Colour)
T'au - White
Sa'cea - Orange
Ke'lshan - Yellow
Bor'kan - Turquoise
D'yanoi - Blue
Vior'la - Red
Au'taal - Green

I do not suggest you make your own. There are something like 20, and most don't have assigned colors so you can use anything. In the Imperium there are billions of worlds so youc an make up one easy, but that's ALL the Tau septs...

Indeed, Read your codex, breath your codex, sleep with your codex. If you do it enough, you can make army lists in your head during boring classes!

I think you can make a sept. Just because there are 20 major septs, I'm sure there are developing colonies or smaller septs.
Plus, you can paint them however you want.

just wondering, since they always show tau in the codexs as the yelow-ish colour, is that the "generic" colour? or do they just like to show the Ke'lshan sept?

i personally paint my army this colour beacuse i thought it looked cool, and they aren't a part of a certian sept. (besides the kickass sept)

Shorelineviking:

You paint the armor the yellow-brown color, or thesept markings yellow-brown? I ask because the armor isn't sept-specific, they use what they need for camo. The sept markings are though, and most of the time they show plains camo T'au warriors with white sept markings.

Note that these are the sept markings, and they dont restrict your armor color. For example, my Sa'cea are Emerald Blue/Chaos Black, with Fiery Orange sept markings. Holds to fluff, and I like the colors, but I could have gone wih a different main color scheme and been ok too.
