So I recently acquired some Fire Warriors to start an alliance with my Dark Angels. I wanted to do a scheme in which the Tau have re-painted their armour to match that of their battle brothers. Here are a few images and I apologise for the quality of them as I only had my iPod to hand to take them. They models shown aren't complete yet as bases and detailing needs to be done. What do you guys think?

I know it's not strictly Tau but I wanted to do something different

That looks rather nice. I think it needs some red markings in there as well though to match the Marine weapon and trim colours. Maybe some nifty sept markings and sections of rifle casing?

Agreed. I would like to see some red accents or details picked out on the Fire Warriors to match the classic Dark Angels scheme.

You could do some tau writing or sept marking on the shoulders or the gun in red to spice it up. Check out my gallery I have so dark green painted tau not the dark angels scheme per say but it might give you ideas.

Add a dash of red and they'll look great!
