My army has a light blue, foresty look. All of my models have shadow grey in some sort. My firewarrior are just pure shadow grey armor and chaos black cloth with details, and my battlesuits are shadow grey base coating with white highlighting. My tanks are just primed shadow grey and details were done with chaos black and different forms of red. My kroot were the most diverse unit in my army, and I used shadow grey for their cloth, but I decided to go for a mud-man look from Lord of the Rings, and painted their skin scorched brown, and then painted their guns boltgun metal with mythril silver highlights, and their quills are chaos black with white tips, and the end result actually ended up looking pretty good! All of the models bases were done using pebbles from games workshop and were painted snot green, and I put some building parts in with the crisis suits. What color scheme does your army use?

For my FWs, grey cloth, white plates with shadow grey (blue) streaks. For my tanks and suits, a grey undercoat, with a white splatter pattern to look like winter camo, with shadow grey in the lines.

I use the somehow uncommon default color scheme like in the codex. I have a few personal tweaks like for the FW I do only a drybrush of scorched on the cloth, leaving it essentially black which makes a sharp contrast with the vomit brown.... and I really like the result

My suits are undercoated with Dark Puprle.
I then highlight this with Warlock puprle.
THEN! I ink it with Blue Ink.
After that, i get ice blue, and bring out the armour, using a 0.2 fine penliner to enhance the gaps in the armour.
Then, touch up, and highlight!

My Firewarriors are going to have the same thing done to them.

I like ze look!

Beastial brown clothing, turquoise armor. I use white as a contrast color (helms on 'ui, etc), black for trim and most of my symbols are in yellow. My crisis suits are turquoise with white contrasting panels and my stealths are black with turquoise highlights.

The kroot are orange with black/jade green quills and bone white breastplates.

I'm using, for my firewarriors atleast, Red Gore for the armor and Regal Blue for the cloth. I drybrush the regalblue with electric blue and the red gore armor is highlighted with blazing orange (aka. Blood Angels Red).

My Kroots skin has the colour Catachan green as base and is drybrushed with Camo Green.... Haven't painted anything else yet in my 1600p army.... I'm taking it slow because I want everything to look supernice
