    bork'an sept

    i play a Sa'cea sept and find that the painting is very easy, as grey's go well over black.. i havent tried a white scheme on tau so far but it would be interesting.....

    ok, so what im thinking is...undercoat chaos black...

    Armor/weapon plating:
    -base...codex grey
    -highlight...skull white (leaving grey in recess of plates - using 2 thinned coats of paint)
    Cloth:
    -base...shadow grey
    -highlight...codex grey OR astronomican grey
    -wash...badab black, slightly thinned with water
    Lenses:
    -base...scab red (leaving roughly 1/5 of lens as black)
    -highlight...blood red (leaving roughly 2/5 of lens scab red)
    -extreme highlight...skull white (small dot in the corner where the black meets the scab red)
    Weapon:
    -base...fenris grey (leaving black in recesses)
    -highlight...codex grey (on the very edges - refer to codex)

    when applying the sept colours, in this case with Bork'an its hawk turquoise, use 2 thin coats, not 1 thick one to avoid a chunky, messy finish.

    goodluck

    PS. tanks could be a challenge to paint in this scheme as it is very difficult to get a smooth white coverage on vehicles (i suggest a white undercoat) followed by several very thin coats of codex grey placed carefuly into the recesses, then paint the whole tank again using thinned skull white, leaving recesses grey) lenses and guns/drones painted in same way as you would a firewarrior's
