You can do whatever scheme you wish, in no way are you required to follow the ones in the codex.
Those are just examples, showcasing the type of camo the tau would use in separate battlefields and the sept that is most alike to those particular conditions.
The sept markings, however, are completely different. If the background of your tau revolves around them coming from a particular sept these markings will show players which one. They're just bands of different colours that are on page 59 of the codex; these are not all of the markings, as there are about twenty different septs and maybe ten designated colours, feel free to make your own.
These are again, optional, as your cadre can come from many different septs, or like mine, originate from the farsight enclaves. Or just from no specified place.

Or even a grouping of tau from different septs. could you tell us which sept your army comes from (if you've decided) or the background you've come up with for it (e.g my tau are desert fighters).

There are essentially no limitations(heck if you want to paint the pink with daisies on then you can)

If you search the net you should find plenty of inspiration

Also, you aren't supposed to use text speak on the forums, just informing you so you don't make the mistake again
