Iced Tau of the Nest'La Sept
So, I mentioned white... and green. She said I was dumb and pretty much asked me why I didn't do white and blue. And this is the outcome. A quick mock up of a winter-based Tau army. So, it will be a white base with Icy Blue for the highlight and a Asurmen Blue wash on the legs. Enchanted Blue is the darker blue. Luckily, all my basing is easily "snowified." I plan on picking up some blue and clear crystals tomorrow from the craft store to include on the bases to add something interesting. Blazing Orange is the contrasting highlight.
Okay, yeah, I know. It was wrong. So very, very wrong. But as my D&D character, Wrenn Pickleton, Wild Sorcerer would say, "It's Wrenntastic!"

I love the light blue (I'm undecided about the dark blue below.. perhaps a grey)? Overall, the effect is great.
Soon we'll have to see how easily they die... hehehe
Grey would work. Granted, the dark blue on the gun is gonna change to an orange, but yeah, I can see grey working there. It still fits with the iced theme.
On a side note: I fully expect to have the Tau die horrible deaths, over and over again. Unfortunately, they are considered one of the weaker armies in 5th. However, their play style is unique, and I love the story and the models, and damnit, that is what is really important.
You should listen to your wife more often.. She seem's like she is very smart. :)
