Folk seem to really enjoy the colour of the armour plating of my Tau Kill Team, so I thought I'd share my method. Enjoy!

  1. Basecoat the plating with Incubi Darkness .
  2. Add a chunky edge highlight of Incubi Darkness and Kabalite Green mixed 1:1.
  3. Now edge highlight everything again, this time with thin lines of pure Kabalite Green .
  4. Selectively highlight corners and prominent edges with a 1:1 mix of Kabalite Green and Gauss Blaster Green . Don't go over everything, just small areas to add volume.
  5. For extra shiny, add in dot highlights of Gauss Blaster Green . Apply these only on corners where highlights meet and in the middle of the prominent edges you just highlighted.
