But if I had to chose frome those the three, I'd go with the second. I don't like the red pauldron and the colored pauldron is closer to the fluff than the first and gives more detail to the 'ui.

Kakapo42 wrote:Depending on how confident you are with your freehanding skills, you could also consider further personalising your colour scheme by playing with the colour of the 'line and dot' Sept markings. The white panels are enough to show your force hails from T'au if it comes up, so you've got some leeway with what colour to do up the Sept/Team markings. Red is of course traditional for the orchre T'au desert camouflage, but you're just as free to choose a different colour instead (or even more than one for different purposes - to differentiate Firewarrior and Pathfinder Shas'Ui, for example, or to distinguish commanders above Shas'Ui rank).
