[Gallery] Updated desert camo Tau Sept

Post#1 » May 04 2015 08:15

I have posted my desert pink scheme before, but the army has undergone a refresh based on the current paint range. If anything it is now pinker than before. I have included a selection from the completed army so far. I currently have finished 6 crisis suits, 40 fire warriors, 21 pathfinders, Cadre Fireblade, 3 hammerheads, 2 devilfish and assorted drones. Once the remaining figures I have are completed I will add the unit and vehicle transfer markings.

The current scheme is primed with white, then Screamer Pink base, Emperors Children layer and a heavy brushing of Changeling Pink. The yellow areas are Averland Sunset with an Agrax Earthshade wash. Tau symbols etc are picked out in blue. Fire warriors have a unit designation color on the shoulder pad.

I have started work on a Tau version of the Fortress of Redemption which I plan on renaming as a Fortress of Expansion. I took detailed measurements from the original model, the first gun bunker is shaped and about 50% completed construction. If I remember I will try to take photos during construction and upload the plans if I can figure out a way that they would make sense to someone other than me.

Mmm...It's a good thing I didn't go with that paint scheme. My kids would probably think it's cotton candy and try eating the models. Haha, good stuff thought mate. Thanks for sharing these with us. :crafty:

40K pink panthers !

For those who thinks it's strange, see these links :

Strangely, no soldier camo came in pink (manly issue ?)

Interesting scheme but you need a desert table to see them fit. It may looks weird on urban ruins...

I love the look of your desert pink scheme!

To fallow up Kael'yn's links I also found a link with some good info on desert camo styles and the reasons they were used. http://lrdg.hegewisch.net/camo.html

Desert Pink, overall. The pink color was thought the best color to hide the vehicles at the most dangerous times of the day (sunrise and sunset) and help the vehicle to disappear in the hazy horizon when seen at a distance.
