Default Color scheme ideas... help...

I've been playing ulthwe for lots of years, looking at these plain boring black guardians day and day.. drives me sane as they look too basic, and nothing colorbul as i might have want it to be...

so i'm planning to repaint, my army, possibly use a non existant craftworld out of hte 5's main one's color...

so im seeking other members help generate some ideas throughout my head.. as i have none...

for those who have armies non main craftworld color, what colors you use?

or for those who have ideas, but haven't tried it, any suggestions??

thx

I've always wanted to paint my army brown and white... kinda like on guardians use snakebite leather for the primary colour and bleached bone for the secondry.

I like him already.

I'm using a sort of Ulthwe based list, called the Mori-shin (moree sheen, japanese pronounciation), who are based upon the idea of a seer heavy jungle fighting army. As such they started out Dark Angels green and black. But I have since lightened up the non-black guardian units with the occasional panel of armour painted with bleached bone with a snakebite leather wash. This gives a very warm almost wooden look to the armour.

Colours that could work, try replacing the bone-black with grey-bone. I've tried this before and it ends up looking very high tech. Make sure that bone is in the majority and this really looks nice.

Wow, that sounds nice. I've noticed that a lot of supposed 'Imperial' colour schemes (such as camo, urban etc) look really good on Xenos.
Your army scheme sounds reminiscient of Wood Elves, which is interesting.
On a slightly off-topic note Hunter, there are some excellent conversion oppertunities there, I can envisage a Warlock/Farseer on a scenic base surrounded by a wall of water...

I'm more ofr jungle than forest, the difference being about three extra spiky plants per cubic meter.
I also have a slightly nasty air about them, my warlocks are very much warriors, and some of my farseers look downright nasty! I have one who I'm calling the Jester based on a guardian body but with a glaive/halberd sort of thing that would not look out of place in the hands of an Archon.

Cool, they sound similar to Harelquins.
