Illegal? What fo you thinks is going to happen if your army is painted 'wrong' at a tournament? They'll confiscate your army or that somebody might execute an exterminatus order
on your army?
Okay here's the simplest rule for your army: Paint it anyway you like!
Its not like Tau armies have livery colors like the Space Marine chapters: Blood Angels are red, Black Templars are white and black, Imperial Fists are bright yellow. Granted many Black Library authors are not up on our lore, and so have pushed the idea that there are some kind of 'livery' colors.
And the Farsight shows the Enclaves color as being red, but even here you don't have to paint them that color. If you can get your hands on the first three Tau codices you can see a wide variety of colors and camouflage patterns. Sadly do to IP constraints we can't post all that old GW material on the forum.
Better yet just search the hobby logs and posts of photos of members of armies. And you'll get all the inspiration you'll ever want.
Hope you find inspiration here on the A.T.T. forum.
Then TauMan waits to see you come up with.
