Would you guys please tell me the color of their blood for painting purposes!
I think its crimson, in the Tau codex it shows this story about a bonding ceremony and it should say there. I'm not 100% positive its crimson though.

its red (same as crimson) its in the bonding ritual story in the codex and also the book fire warrior
If you charge a bunker and die, its called being reckless, but if you charge the bunker and win, it's heroic!
What you do is: make a mix of 1/5 blood red, 1/10 red ink, 1/10 skull white, 1/5 red gore, 1/5 warlock purple, 1/10 ultramarine blue and 1/10 scab red. That should look about right.
Ave Dominus Nox!
Thanks guys for the intel
Their blood is copper based.
Read Fire Warrior.

Tau: 4/4/3 - 50%
DaemonHunters: 1/2/0 - 33.3%
Dark Angels: 3/1/0 - 75%
Do bear in mind, that Human Blood is actually two different colours depending on circumstances.
Arterial blood is oxygenated and is bright red. Because it is under considerable pressure, a rupture in the artery will tend to cause it to spurt out and away from the body, hence it is the blood 'most often seen' in traumatic situations (i.e. 'arterial spray'.
Venous blood is not oxygenated because it has released its oxygen to the muscles and other tissues. It is a kind of purple colour, almost blue. The veins that transpost it back to the lungs are not as pressurised as the arteries, so will not tend to expel it as dramatically if ruptured.
So, Tau blood could be more than one colour, and you have an excuse if someone challenges you as to its authentic colour.
Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?
Its a bluey colour, as kiirar said most likely copper in the blood (like some crabs! ) as opposed to humans which are iron. As for the being oxygenated or not I dont know but in firewarrior itr says tau blood is a blue-ish colour...
