I am going to start painting my army again after a long break. I need to buy some new paints and was looking at the Reaper paints. The army I am going to be painting is Tau, and I was wanting to make the primary armor color a deep blue (Sa'cea sept) and was wondering what Reaper triads I should be using to get the great shading I've seen in the Painting videos =D Thanks in Advance

Going to start painting my Tau soon so I was wondering how to paint the cloth. It will be basecoated in Warlock Purple but I'm unsure what I should do from there. Help please!

all depends on how new.

I do

scab red base
blood red mid tone
blazing orange highlights

when you get a bit better blend them together and add a bit of white into the 2nd and 3rd highlights.

use a few black washes on it thined down and really working on the receses from there use your same warlock purple to dring the raised ages back up to the mid tone.

From here different people will say do it different ways if you use white mixed into the purple you'll get pink highlights ewwww so i'd try kommando kaki every highlight stage add a little bit more.

then the above method should work just dont worry about the mixing bit at the end.

I'd use a black undercoat on it too.

heres a wee example of an ork face I did so you can see what I mean by using the lighter colours and darker working together

I just started painting a dread naught. I only have his multimelta left to paint. However, he has lots of little banners on him, and I've seen pictured where those banners will have something like Ultrnmarines, or a name on them. I was just wondering if there was a specific way to write them on? I have an arsenal of brushes, but none are really fine enough to get the job done.
