I like the colour scheme you've chosen for your Tau - I don't know why, but something about the colour combination reminds me a lot of some of the original Generation 1 Transformers.

As for what Sept to go with, the easy options are T'au, which under 6th edition background has white as its Sept colour and would match the decal on the shield generator, or Vash'ya, which under 6th edition background has purple as its Sept Colour. Personally however I'd recommend you take a look at the codex and pick which Sept you like the sound of most - it's your army, so you're free to make it from whatever Sept you wish. :)

This.
You can even create your own. Colours for tau are just for camo, so if you want a new sept just make it up. I'm sure after 200 years from where we were there are new septs.

To be more precise: ARMOR colors for T'au are just for camo. Sept and ranking markings are fix for each Sept and uniform across all models of that Sept no matter the armor color (you can still decide whatever Sept color to use for your own custom Sept though). ;)

And next time don't hit the "Send" button multiple times. Wait a few minutes and see whether it got posted or not. Maybe check in a seperate tab if you're not sure maybe. ;)

Hover your cursor over the post you want to delete. At the top right corner of the post (not the screen) some buttons should become visible. One of them is the delete button; it looks like a red X. However, once a post has been around for some time, it cannot be deleted.
