Welcome to Tau Online! ^^

But you should go to the "hobby" section for this.

I'll say this though, that should be good.

Too superhero for me.

Light blue is barely acceptable in my eyes.

Regal blue is a dark blue.

Lightnig strikes? no...light blue urban camo blops? now you're thinking like a Tau. If you check out the pics in the codex, it's customary to have a brighter contrasting color for your squad and leader markings, have you considered what to use for that, or if you will at all?

Have a look at the Night Lords (chaos space marine) paint scheme (if you haven't already) as their pretty much done up in the same scheme. Done well (lightning strikes are pretty hard to paint, at least for me) they could look like some pretty spiffy Tau.

First welcome to TO. Now for the bad stuff. The moderators here like to keep these boards looking proper, so you need to use correct capitalization, punctuation, and grammar in your posts. That means typing "I" and not "i" and using periods.

My advice for a color scheme would be to paint up a test model, and see how you like it. I couldn't decide between two schemes, so I painted two fire warriors up. I ended up choosing blazing orange/midnight blue, but liked the second color so much I painted everything with a stealth field the second color. Hope that helps.
