Has anyone seen the back inside cover of the old How to paint space marines? They had a pretty good concept for a Asian style scheme.
As for origins, Tau use Samurai style but Chinese ideals, and White Scars are a Mongol horde.

|GabrialSagan||Yes Tau and Eldar are both Japanese inspired. The Eldar from classical samurai and the Tau from current Mecha anime. Though the Greater good reminds me more of communism then anything else.|

Yeah, the eldar were originally intended to be their Japanese race but then came tau, but i don't think they are all that anime orientated as mecha really is a small part of anime. (not enough panties being shown).
Tbh everything in warhammer can be related back to a part of our own history (or someone else's creations), because that's how they intended it, they didn't want something completely alien they wanted something strange that seems familiar.

|GabrialSagan||I believe that when GW originally created the Eldar they were meant to have a samurai feel to them, hence their primary ranged weapons being shuriken.|

...Expect his armor is nothing like a samurai's. Nor are his tactics.
And his personality and doctrines hardly match the warrior poet/artists of samurai. Maybe something closer to, I don't know, Mongolian herd's men? KHAN would be an indicator of something, perhaps?

They look pretty sick. Very nice paint job.
The description of the paint job is as such...
Victoria's color scheme is based on the Black Templars with contrasting details in red and turquoise. Some details have a subtle samurai flavor to them that is carried over onto the Chapter and Squad iconography. The Company marking also takes up the Asian feel and is on the right kneepad.
Hopefully the picture I took will post below. If not sorry for the tease.
