Drybrushed T'au

Once upon a time, a friend of mine gave me a box of models that had been languishing in his loft. There were various Space Marine models, most of which you have seen already, and some T'au. I planned to fix up and paint or repaint the T'au at some point, but wasn't sure what colour scheme to use. I knew I didn't want to use the standard T'au ochre, and I certainly wasn't going to paint them completely white, like the GW website models. I eventually came across a scheme used by @Pegastyx on Instagram, that suddenly struck me as being a unique way of approaching T'au. Rather than make them neat and tidy and clean, she had painted them in a drybrushed scheme with a sort of 'sunset' palette of colours. I immediately knew it was the colour scheme for me, so I created my own version of it. The base is purple, and then there are drybrushed layers of pink (pink horror) and deep yellow (averland sunset).

These Fire Warriors with pulse rifles were first, and this is how they came out. I love them so much! The blue bases in particular were a serious departure for me, but they complement the models so well. Onto more T'au, then...
