Help me choose a sept scheme, which works best?
By - pazshadow
I do like cutter and the last one
That baby blue is awesome
Cutter looks cool
3 and 4 are my favs (cutter and peace keeper)
Cutter imo works rhe best. Light teals and colors allow better pops if you want shading, line highlights, and dirt/bare metal/aging to show
You will have an absolutely unique army with a beautiful scheme if you go with Peacekeeper, it's got like a military police vibe or something and looks awesome.
Maybe it’s not clear but I think it’s literally modeled after the uniforms of UN Peacekeepers.
Wow, didn't know they were a thing.
Yep, nailed it!
Meridian or Cutter are probably the most "Tau". Something about Peacekeeper REALLY grabs my attention though. I think you have a lot of winners here no matter what you pick!
Cutter or wasp
cutter for sure
I'm a camo pattern famboy but the first blue one looks the best imo
Im team wasp
2 or 3
Wasp is cool. I think you’ll go crazy with the cami patterns
The Ethereals have chosen Cutter Sept, Shas'O.
Which program did you use to make that?
I used procreate
Thanks! I'll try that for my battlesuit schemes!
Meridian, wasp, cutter
In that order
Wasp or Cutter definitely
Cutter or wasp.
If you were like a professional duncan rhodes level painter then Gulf would look insane, but I feel like Cutter would look good if you did some cool stuff with the rust, and Wasp would be the easiest to do. Really, in the end its your choice. Really cool ideas though.
I like piece keeper, it's like onu soldiers, blue helmets
Meridian or Gulf
Gulf or cutter, or a combo of both
Wasp cutter and gulf are all pretty cool
Cutter or Meridian
I kinda did wasp on mine but with red instead of yellow. Peacekeeper looks so rad
Cutter and wasp
I like cutter
Love your scheme!
Peacekeeper is great, gives me UN military vibes
Firstly, beautiful schemes, nice work.
I love what you've done with the peacekeeper scheme and think camo done well can look really good on mecha, so that would be my pick overall.
What I would say is I'm a big fan of variety within an army and Tau caters well for this, so consider a variation of whatever you choose to slap on the higher ranked suits etc. You can also have some fun with certain elements like stealth suits etc and do those in a different way.
I've got FSE supported by custom sept, then glossy black stealth suits, ramshackle kroot, brilliant blue vespid etc. The variety is far more visually appealing (to my eye at least) than a wall of stuff all in the same scheme.
Green or blue. Don’t over complicate it.
last one, cookie dough with NATO hats by a landslide
My army is very close to wasp, but peacekeeper looks the best in my opinion.
3-4-5 in that order
Wasp or Peacekeeper
Either Peacekeeper with a yellow head or the desert with a black head
Chocolate DRIP 💯💯
Any camo your going to hate to keep painting 😂
Wasp 100%, I dislike the last two so I guess I’m just against patterns
I dig Gulf. Wasp is similar to my scheme, sans red. There's an XV8 painted near that in my feed.
Wasp or peacekeeper for me
Wasp and Cutter are really nice.
If you ask me Wasp and Cutter would make both a very good looking army.
If your sept world is filled with trees & green fields, Go Peacekeeper. If your sept world is filled with arid land & mountains, Go Gulf.
It like Anime you give them a different Color and Name and you expect people to believe they are completely different and unique. They are all the same!
You ever saw Anime all of the characters looks the same but they charge small details and give them different Names that's exactly what happened with these Mechs change small details and give them different Names
Green and Yellow. Camo is notoriously hard to paint. Go solid colors and you won't regret it.
Go with bright orange and light teal, accent with black. Looks awesome
Wasp, mainly due to a certain Titan who followed Protocol 3 to the bitter end
Peacekeeper or Meridian.
Wasp for sure.
GULF, I would kill to see an army painted in that pattern. I love the camo it’s unique and would be a interesting play on the classic tau dessert scheme
Cutter and Gulf!
Im a real sucker for wasp, did my tau very similarly but with red instead of yellow. Tho i think cutter would look very nice as well.
Assuming you did the lineart for these scheme templates, holy crap they're crisp. I tried sketching a crisis suit as well for a color scheme template but it didn't come out nearly as good!
You got an insta? I'd love to follow your process!
I like the look of Cutter, and I don't think I've seen that scheme before.
I like peacekeeper. It's the pattern the German army uses in desertdeployments :D
Cutter looks cool but I think Meridian works best if you want crisp models. Great contrasts there, might even steal that for myself :D
Peacekeeper is what I would use for sure!
I like the wasp one
Cutter. I dig the rust
Why not the wasp black and yellow?
Other than that I like the cutter
Like the wasp I haven't really seen any tau in green armour yet
Edit : although the cutter one looks nice
2nd one is great. Green tau really speaks to me and yellow accent is making it look futuristic.
I just paint my tau Caliban/Nurgling with Evil Suns Red and it looks a bit like old russian tanks.
Btw, how did you prepare such preview? It would be so helpful to have such template and just play around with colours.
Wasp and cutter are good
Wasp or Meridian. I’d go Wasp.
4 or 5
Cutter and peacekeeper. Depends, do you want waterworld or Sarajevo vibes?
Meridian or wasp for me! But all of them look awesome! Enjoy the experience of choosing the scheme, assembling the models, painting them and playing!
Wasp is literally the scheme i have painted my tau in the green is very easy to do although the yellow is a bit tricky.
Gulf or cutter for sure
Wap is really good! Do you have only the line art so I can try my scheme?
Cutter looks the coolest but I'd personally go for Gulf because I like to think of my armies as reasonable people who don't see camo as a sign of fear lol
Wasp or Gulf imo
I'd go Gulf, but white head rather than blue
I’d go peacekeeper or gulf but I’d have a white helmet on them 👍
I like Meridian, but remember *any* white is going to be an absolute ball ache to paint.
I feel like cutter has the outlandish, been surviving on the land, type look. I think it gives an underdog vibe to it and looks sick. Like where to the point they can barely maintain their battle suits.
Cutter or Peacekeeper imo
I like Wasp and Gulf. Meridian almost seems like a gundam (which honestly looks amazing with the T'au if I'm honest)
Where's my Gulf Gang at?
Wasp really stands out to me im trying some camo schemes myself good luck either way ... i spoted an amazing halo master chief colour scheme that i wanna copy cause im already doing my vehicles in a cov colour scheme
I think Meridian and Wasp look great
I'm in love with the middle one!
4. Make it happen or I’m stealing your idea!
Desert storm! Gulf 100%
Peacekeepers looks amazing
I love the cutter scheme
Peacekeeper my favourite
Wasp is the scheme I would choose.
The first two will be both easiest to paint, and have some great contrasting color. But if I had the skill for it, I'd do the Gulf scheme; the camo look with some select shocks of blue could be stunning.
Cutter and peace keeper look cool
Peace keeper , but in red urban camo ;-)
Peacekeeper look pritty cool. Seems also a bit more difficult, and I like to stretch my painting skills.
Cutter and Peacekeeper are both really cool imo. I knew someone who had an ice-blue Tau army way back and I loved their scheme so much it got me into collecting the army in the first place
Don't put earthling camo on tau please!
I love the Pace Keeper, I think I will use it myself!!!
Wasp and cutter look awesome
Cutter, imo it what really pulls it together is the weathering and dirt.
Meridaiu looks really good
I like wasp with a little orange flair
Cutter or Gulf
I really like Wasp because it reminds me of BT from Titanfall 2
Mind if I use the wasp colour scheme?
I don’t think I can claim dibs on a colour scheme so help yourself to any!
The far right one looks sick
The last 2 look like the classic UN schemes. Gotta love those blue helmet boys
Gulf is sick, only potential downside is camo looks weird on the tabletop at a distance
Cutter for sure. Any members of the Greater Good out there with suggestions of what paints might best match these colors?
