Hello all, I finally got my order from Games Workshop, im so excited.
It isn't much but it will help me set up a few decent battles with a few friends of mine. A battle force, 4x pathfinders, 2x firewarriors, 1x Piranha, and i am waiting for a XV89 from forgeworld as my commander.
I browsed the forum's gallery section and saw some great scheme ideas, but i ended up in a bone/blue black scheme with red sept markings (Vior'la). I havent picked up a brush in a long time so my painting is kind of rusted, read some techniques here and there, learned some new ones - and here is a tiny resault of what i came up with my scheme.
I know that Tau - fluff wise - get dressed according to what kind of environment they are going to fight, a well camouflaged set up. So the blue is kind off the camouflage.
For the first time i tried the feathering technique in my mini painting, so what i used was:
Blue areas :
Regal blue base coat
Regal blue 50% - Hawk Tirquaz 50%
Hawk Tirquaz 100%, 1 drop paint / 6 drops Thinner
Bone areas :
Snakebite leather base coat
Snake bite leather 50% - Bleached bone 50%
Snakebite leather 25% - Bleached bone 75%
Bleached bone 100%, 1 drop paint / 6 drops Thinner
I was trying to "glaze" it but ended up feathering. Someone told me that glazing needs more shades and more color tones and that what i did was feathering!
What you guys think, don't hesitate and tell me what you really believe for the scheme and how i could further improve it.
As far as the list goes, i will post my 1st battle report in a few weeks!
Thanks in advance.
