Farsight Tau Pathfinders Commission Showcase

I was asked to paint a unit of Tau Pathfinders in the classic Farsight Enclaves colour scheme as a gift. I really enjoy working on the Pathfinder models as the sculpts are really crisp (not like the Fire Warriors..).

I started by aibrushing the Khorne red onto the armour plates and lightly drybrushing the edges with Evil Suns Scarlett and then Tau Light Ocre (very lightly!). I then filled in the cloth and other areas with black before adding highlights and washing it black with Nuln Oil Shade. I also used the shade in the recesses of the armour panels to add some definition.

The yellow OSL was achieved using a light misting of white glazed yellow.
