    bases colours?

    Hi,

    I'm painting my Tau Fire Warriors as the standard T'au scheme - Vomit Brown, Vermin Brown, you get the picture.

    I'm looking for the right colours to slap on my bases after sanding them... I start out with a Chaos Black undercoat (from the spray can) but what do I do then?

    I've got Scorched Brown, Vermin Brown, Vomit Brown, Codex Grey, Graveyard Earth, Bleached Bone etc but I'm willing to buy the right pots to get a nice sandy colour that justifies their desert camo scheme

    A Tau Ethereal was thought to have been killed today by a Bloodthirster. However, many Tau were seen fleeing the scene and are considered suspects.

    for my sand i paint desert yellow(no black showing through) and then drybrush bleached bone and paint the rim bleached bone as well. It gives a really good effect.

    From my experience you really don't want your bases to be the same colour as your models, but you do want your bases to compliment your models. Based on your scheme, I would go with Bleached Bone.
