Okay, I plan on painting my Tau army, White and Violet, right?
But, I plan on using both red, and blue for sub colors on my army.
I need a GW / Vallajo paint, that is right in the middle of red and blue. I guess I could mix it, but, dont know how well it would last if I mixxed 2 differant paints like that, and I want a uniform color for my whole army. Im afraid if I mix it regularly in small ammounts, that it will end up varying from peice to peice and stand out like a sore thumb.
Well from the GW range your best bet would be either Liche Purple or Warlock purple, or even purple ink (if you have the patience).
Well after some helpful insight on this page: HERE I managed to remember that Purple is the colour between red and blue (I havent done color wheels for 6 years) So You could go with Warlock purple, Imperial purple, Liche purple or loads of purple ink.
Edit: Curse you KU!! I was here first!!! Just the fact I forgot where purple was on the colour chart and my slow typing meant you outclocked me by 4 Minutes!!!!
Technically, Purple is more blue then Violet.
Violet is the color name for the middle ground between Blue and Red..
Heck, screw it. I dont need to have a scientifically perfect color balance between 2 colors. Liche Purple / Purple Lichen will be good enough.
LOL. Sorry, this thread can be deleted now. It is kinda pointless.
no reason to scald yourself now.
check it out. vallejo paints come in a dropper bottle. everytime you paint mix one drop of red and one of blue. it'll be exactly the same every damn time.
now put away the boiling teakettle.
Take my words with a grain of salt, i am not the tactical genius i think i am!
Buy a mixing pot and pour both your red and your blue in it in equal quantities, and you will have your colour. Scientifical as a board with a nail in it but it's guaranteed to work.
Here's my way to get the exact same colour mix each time, I use it a lot for airbrushing models.
Buy one tin of your red, buy one tin of your blue and two mixing pots.
Use a bigger container such as a spray paint lid and pour both of them into it. Mix them thouroghly until a constant colour is achieved. Then pour the contents of the container into the two empty mixing pots.
Voila! Two pots of violet*!
*Violet will be achieved provided that one paint is not more dominant than another.
Those two pots of paint should last you your entire army so they're a decent investment.
