Postby woff1dbeta » Sat Aug 13, 2016 11:15 pm

Hello , i'm fairly new to the Warhammer40k hobby and i been thinking about buying the Tau army starter set called "Start Collecting! Tau Empire"

Im not sure wich paint colors i have to buy to get all the figures in the same color pattern or how many , some guidance would be appreciated
thanks

Well since Army Painter does not have a can of Orange primer you can follow the examples in the below link.

Remember that the local hobby store should have Americana paint which come in bigger sizes and cheaper plus a whole set of colors.

They will have several different types of Orange so you can do highlighting with them as well.

On the back of the GW box's it should display the colours used in the photo seen as this is the generic Tau colour scheme. If you don't have any boxes well black is abbadon black, white is corax white and i beleive the brown is called XV-88 if im not mistaken.
