My space marines are mainly white and gold with some blue and very, very small amounts of red.
I'm basing them as if they were shredding some Tau i.e. dudes jumping on grounded gun drones and parts of tanks.
What i would like to know is what colour would suit the Tau bits. can not do them white because it would look as if they were one force, red mite draw the attention away from the models. any ideas people?

Red white and gold go well together. Though you are correct the red would draw the eye quite a lot. You could try a reddish brown/orange?

Yeah. i can see that working, TBH i had just thought about solid colours. Maybe i could go with the vomit brown of the poster Tau. orangey brown?

I think blue would look pretty sharp with white and gold.

Yeah, i did to. the problem with that is Blue is a large part of the SM themselves and it would sort of blend, if you see what i mean. but cheers.

Maybe a subtle off-white would pair well with it, like Kommando Khaki.

Gray could look good too.

Without seeing the model I can't say for sure however...

If your model is largely one block color you could make use of complementary colors.


Basically the opposite hue of whatever color your marines are.

I think you want something quite different but subservient to the colour of the marines, which is why I would not choose blues or greys.

Other warmer off white colours might work.
