Inside page of the front cover in the Tau Codex.



I'd make your own, then you can make your own fluff and you might like the colour scheme more.

Making your own sept is what cooler than following a pre-made one...just like choosing a SM chapter!

As for the name "Da'yth", it will work perfectly, for Tau words are easy to come up with...I even made up my commanders name: Shas'el A'u'nat...lol ^-^
I still haven't figured out a sept name for myself yet...

I have a color scheme with white dress and blue armor... Half of the head is painted red and the top of the rifle is red too...
Blue/white with a bit of red......Awsome !!!

I always find creating your own colour scheme is much more rewarding. Or failing that copy the one from the front of the codex, as it is actually quite a good scheme using red clothing and desert coloured armour as long as all the armour is camoflauged (even on Fire Warriors). This is what i originally did as it suited my desert board, but if you want to go the whole mile then pick your own colours.

You could pick one of your favourite colours and base your army around that, adding different shades and tints to make them blend so they fit in with the chosen battle environment, or you could add contrasting colours to make them more striking. It all depends on how you want them to look.
