So as I recover from my operation, one of the targets I set myself was to get my DZC force out of the box and ready for the arrival of the terrain that the BFG has picked up at Salute today,
I had come up with an idea for a paint scheme for a Tau force before I purchased the army that I have now. This was based around the effect of a force field on a vehicle, and I had the idea of using two sets of opposing colours and a template to allow a hex effect of shading.
So I painted my force a pearlescent blue, like you see on a Subaru impreza. I then acquired from Hobby Craft a seizable piece of bridal mesh that I understand would be used for bridal favours, florists ribbon or such like. I then held this over the vehicles and used a basic white Vallejo Air colour with a light spray over the top. I hope you agree that the effect is superb.
Picture paint a thousand words, so here you go.
