Hey there everyone,
SO i was watching Topgun today (oh how i love that movie) and really liked the idea of painting some Tau tanks in a F16 pattern. I was thinking about a flat grey colour with mith some tau markings on the sides of the tank. My problem is that i think this might look a little boring, so i was wondering if anyone has any ideas or tips to liven them up, but also give them that sleek Airforce feel.
I don't care what you say. I found a lightsaber in my garage and that makes me a Jedi
Extreme highlighting (not as exciting as other extreme things, that's just what it's called) i find suits tau vehicles really well and helps break up the large spaces nicely.
However, the main problem with painting things grey is, unless you do a really good job (an airbrush might be a good idea for the basecoat(s)), it ends up looking like you haven't painted the model at all!!
Consider starting with space wolves grey, it's not the same colour as an unpainted model (a la codex/fortress grey), as thats quite blue, but still grey. If that makes sense. It'd be a bit darker than the grey you're going for, but will probably look ok!
maby a sky theme. thats very common paint jo0b on airplanes.you can even do the seperate paint schemes for top and bottom.
Never give up. Never give up. HIT, HIT, HIT, HIT!
Check my images in the Tau showcase section. Should be on the main page. Already used this inspiration and painted my hammer... Take a look
