Default new paint scheme

Hey there everyone just testing out a few ideas really gung ho on gettign an apocalypse tau army done up. So I wanted to see what peoples thoughts/advice was on the following schemes i am planning on using.

white armor and black cloth (stormtroopers inevitably )

fenris grey armor and either bestial brown or dark flesh cloth

necron abyss cloth and bright yellow armor

or fianlly orange and green

I am looking to have quick paint scheme but one that I will enjoy that looks very striking

Ave!

For me the first two variations appear more tauish, yellow armour should be left for the inferior fish chapter I've always envisioned the little blue as a force useing more military tones, with a 4+ save 'have pride in your colours is relly not for the tau.

To sum up I'd go with white/black and snow bases (the Tau'n scheme, I'll probably paint my figs that way too)

What sept colour do you plan to use?

I respect your theory on the bright colors I think thats why I started looking into the white and black stormtrooper colors(it helps that i am a huge star wars fan and happen to have a tattoo of a stormtrooper on my back)
I also thought it would be cool to build a version of o'shovah with a red lightsaberesque blade, or of course being a bit less with the star wars concept and going with the shadow or fenris grey with a reddy brown like dark flesh do give my guys some color

Somehow I have a feeling I will be doing the white and black but still happy to receive advice and suggestions.

RE:Sati. it all sort of depends on the scheme I choose for example the white and black I will use red for all of my markings. Maybe a yellow for the markings on the grey and brown scheme.

As well I should mention that I am trying to not do something that GW or other people have done(mostly just GW ) for a paint scheme
