hey, i think this should go here... if not it can be moved

i was wondering if it would be possible to do 2 colour scheme's in the one tau army? Would this be ok within a tournament? or would they just tell me to go away?

the idea for this came from WD (AUS) 327 [when the Dark Angels space marines came out with a new coex]

The reason for this is 'cause i like the different colours that I've done.

You could quite reasonably and logically use two schemes. I've seen armies with a different colour trim on each squad!

It would look much better if you kept each colour scheme seperate in terms of squads though... a squad with both might look a little dodgy.

I think the same way... Tau is my main army for now and they were my first one, so it took a while before I came up with one scheme... I still do test on some units. I will not stop to use a full unit of fire warrior just because they are différent.

If you were to go to a tournament and they told you to go away because they don't like how your models are painted, they're a bunch of pricks. They really can't say anything if the army's painted, after all... or shouldn't, at any rate. Around here, your army doesn't have to be painted to play in the tournaments... you just don't get a painting score, and the painting score counts a fair bit more than most people think it should. As someone who holds himself to the standard of not fielding unpainted models, however, I think counting painting and sportsmanship together as much as winning the actual game is just fine.
