OK, here's my very first Tau paint job. Obsessive as I am, I have cast IG and Nurlge to the side for now, bought the Tau Codex and begged John for one of his 100+ unpainted models to paint up. He relented with the stipulation it would have to go back home with him...
Anyway, I painted him purple and lined him with Dark Flesh. Lining is NOT my strong suit and I will do better next time.
All this is not as relevant as the real goal of this paintjob, which was to try and see if I could paint the Stealth Suit while it is changing its color to the environment.
At first I tried a decal, but that failed, all the print came off in the water, even after coating it with varnish. So to hell with that and I decided to paint it, doing it easy with a drybrush. The stone part was fine, but the electrical current around the change was hard.
Here's a link to some GREAT stuff, and I will try this again.
Despite all my moaning, don't get me wrong, I still like him and hope John won't prime him black right away when he gets him back....
