I hope my regular readers don't me taking a temporary divergence from the Tau for a little while. I've been playing Blood Angels more lately as I've just missed close-combat.
These were base-coated with Vallejo Carmine Red, washed with Badab Black and then drybrushed with Carmine Red again, and then GW Blazing Orange. I then took Mithril Silver and painted on the paint-chipping. Scrotched Brown and Bubonic Brown were dry-brushed on for mud around the tracks of the model. Vallejo Carmine Red is a great alternative to GW's Blood Red. It's about the same color but its much more opaque and it doesn't have a glossy finish.
Don't worry guys, I'll have some Tau stuff up soon. Next Tuesday is another Combat Patrol Tournament this time were only allowed infantry, no vehicles. I'm coming up with a list that has Kroot, Fire Warriors, Stealth Suits and Sniper Drones. Should be fun to bring them out for targeting practice.
