In a related question does the rest of the army have the same scheme or is he like a Marine Chaplain or Librarian in that he has a different color from everyone else?

Whatever you want it to be. Tau are nothing if not flexible.

Just look at Shadowsun - she has pristine white armour, whereas the rest of her army has the blue/grey color scheme. It only makes sense for Farsight to stick out a bit, too.

Cheers,

Doesn't it say in the codex that all the Tau in the farsight enclaves painted their armour red?

It would count as the primary colour, as most of the farsight enclave tau originated from the Tau worlds that spent a long time fighting orks, hence the blood/gore colouring, in fact farsight was originally from the that Tau world, cant think of the sept name though.

Vior'la

I painted my Farsight Enclave's armor Beastial Brown with Red Sept/Squad markings.

If you own DOW Dark Crusade I suggest you play around with army painter, it'll help immensely.

It would cause no harm to have farsight, or any commander in that case, to painted a different colour from the main body of the army. For example, with my crisis suits, I have painted them vomit brown, with sections of scab red painted on parts like the leg guards. By simply reversing the colours on your commander (my case scab red primary, vomit brown secondary) you can easily produce a model which stands out, but at the same time ties in with the rest of your army. At the end of the day its your army, so be creative
