Default Tau Space Ship Interior Brainstorming

I am getting ready to begin my tau again now that the new codex is out. Perhaps paint here and there when I can and get the army ready over the rest of the year.

I have decided that I want to do Tau that are based on a Cadre of Tau that patrol the Damocleas gulf in an Emissary Class Tau Cruisor. Anyway, I am contemplating what their colors would be, as well as the board I want to build.

I will be contemplating the battle board as I do this, and therefore want to work on it at the same time. I know it would not be gothic like the imperials. Would it be more next generation you think, with curved walls. Tau certainly wouldn't use rivets to bind the flooring, more like fusing all of it, I would think.

Would these hirst blocks be ok do you think?

Also, the Tau codex says that they are a Cloth: Blac, Armor: Codex Grey for people on the ships. Do you think this is acurate? Their armor would fit in with their background, so would the ships be this color?

Those hirst blocks seem to fit the tau pretty good, but I cant offer much more comment then that.

I don't think that would fit with the tau that kind of scenery

For idea check the game : Firewarrior
OK the game suck, : but the ship scenery is good

Ug, I would like to. I was never able to get it to work on my PC for some reason, and I can't play the PS2 version worth anything.

Well, if you want to see the internals of a Tau ship, I suggest you go back to the 'Saal academies and learn to aim!

Basically, lots of blue, white and light grey for colours.

Curved walls, as you say, make everything nice and tall (Kor are tall, remember). Keep it minimalist, but functional.

I have seen a board about the Tau interior of a ship.
It was all curvey, and it was all Chaos balck, glossed, with details in white red green blue ect. It was sweet.
