Default Painting Tau Characters

I just notied a couple of articles on the GW website about this, so here they are for all to read. Very helpful IMO for general painting of crisis battlesuits and ethereals as well as just those individual characters themselves! Enjoy!

Awesome! One of the hardest things is to get a good blend for the Tau skin tones. Most skin I see on many Tau armies just looks plain and bland, but this is a nice example from GW to show people how to easily make a little change and make a world of difference to their Ethereal. Now we just have to get people to play with them!

Nice guide to suits too, but really, I don't thing the crisis guide was as useful as the Ethereal one since most people are capable of painting the mechanical type stuff of rigid models, but not quite like the subtle changes that are found on skin and cloth.

Still great! Thanks!

Well different articles are added to different races - check the archives section or just the news page. It does seem that Tau have had a few recently (obviously nothing compared to the re-released races - Tyranids and Wood Elves), and who knows what it means :P.
