Default Tau Colour Scheme

So I'm looking for a Tau colour scheme and wanted to hear some opinions. I've searched the forums and couldn't find what i was looking for so I'm making this post.

Basically i've always had the picture in my head of a bright yellow / slightly orangey yellow (so it isn't neon and can have a straight yellow highlight) on the armour with black cloth with maybe greyish/black highlights.

Has anyone seen any pictures of this done already? How did it look? Got a link to it too because i cant find any

Anyways, opinions and suggestions on actual paint names?

Sounds like a yellow-jacket/bee paint scheme to me. If so it's not the most original scheme but if you do it well enough (and be sure to add good base detail) then the army should be rather striking.

Seventh Sanctum signature oddities.
Alignment: Neutral Pessimistic

Makes this your one good deed a day.

Yeh im not quite going for it to look like a bee though if you know what i mean. Think of a sunset yellow before it gets too orange if you catch my drift. The bee idea sounds ok tho, any pics?
