So I’ve recently gotten some new Scyrah models and don’t really have any massive inspiration in terms of what color scheme to paint them. I’ve trolled the intertoobs for something I like whilst keeping in mind the color schemes of my other armies currently:
Tyranids – Green + White
Marines – light blue + Magenta
Eldar – Brown
Tau – Purple
Menoth – Orange
Circle – el natural with Blue overtures
So the obvious colors missing are yellow/red but I haven’t really seen a color scheme that tickles me in either of those senses. So here are a couple I have liked…
Pink + black/grey – it’s pink man! I like this one and it’s something I haven’t done before for my armies; I think I’d want a bit of color differentiation but overall I’d be quite happy with this concept… (though not sure I’d have the base facings pink as well)
Grey + Purple – the inverse of my Tau really though obviously this scheme has been painted very, very well. I’m thinking something like this but with a different color outside of purple to make them even more different from my Tau. There’s no doubt I could get close to this level of skill though and that might detract from the overall concept…
Blue + Yellow – Another Rahn model! This type of painting is very similar to mine the way the highlighting works and I’m always a fan of blue…but I already have blue armies. The main thought I had here would be to inverse the color scheme; so yellow primary and blue secondary but I’m not sure how that would look. Thoughts?
Grey/Black + Secondary color: and the final option pictured is to use a Grey/Black primary color with one of the secondary colors listed (pink, purple, yellow, green, red, whatever) as exampled below. Not a huge fan of the matte black option just because it’s so hard to make black look good and can be a little bland but you know…
Anyway, I would love some thoughts here guys. GO nuts :).
