I’ve had my eye on painting some Tau models for a while. While I’m not a huge fan of GW’s various price hikes and lack of game balance, the amazing background and gorgeous models are undeniable. The Tau have held my attention since they first came out years ago. I remember picking up a copy of White Dwarf and some Space Marines at my LGS when I was super young, and making my dad turn around and go back so I could buy the codex that had just come out.
Anyway, a while back I had done up a Tau Gun Drone as a paint scheme test. I used P3 Bloodstone as the base for the brown, and P3 Meredius Blue for the aqua. Here, I’ve changed the highlight for the Bloodstone from P3 Rucksack Tan to P3 Heartfire mixed with a little Bloodstone, thanks to the recipe that kommander_redfinger used for some commissioned trolls in this thread.
Anyway, I’ve started working on the shadows and highlights on the battlesuit.
