I am currently painting my tau terrain and putting words and symbols (black) on the buildings. I know that tau terrain is generally white or light grey but my army is black and red. I need a way to tie it all together so my black/red army doesnt look weird up against the white terrain.
any help would be appreciated
Actually the fluff for the Tau says that the armor colors are usually a camoflauge for the Sept that they originate from. That's why most pictures on the GW site and in the old codex (and the new, now that I flip through it again) show the vomit brown Tau against a similarly colored sandy plain with rock outcroppings.
I think most people pick white for Tau buildings because of it's clean technical look, but I've seen tau buildings in all sorts of colors. If the terrain you're building is supposed to represent your Tau Sept, then colors similar to the American South West would work well for the terrain itself, leaving the buildings to match your armor colors. If it's supposed to be an alien world that you're fighting over, then simply make your buildings match the colors of your armor units, and decide on a theme to the terrain itself.
i guess I will do my Tau outpost in my army's colors then.
I like to make my terrain all grey and black. I have a lot of cityfight terrain, and if you try to add to much bright color to the buildings, it takes away from the models.
