...and people immediately mix both model lines even when it's not even fluff apropriate lol
I get that - however, gravis armour seems like a good basis for making Saturnine terminator armour, so it's all good
Right, "important" question:
I already have an Iron Warriors force that I've endeavoured to make 30k appropriate. With the new daemon engines and havocs though, I'd like to go with Iron Warriors again, but with a splinter warband. I want to have a new colour scheme which is different from the IVth Legion, but still close enough that it's recognisable and can look coherent on the tabletop together
Firstly, I've been thinking about using that new contrast black (or muddy brown) over leadbelcher as the base colour - my 30k Warriors have leadbelcher with orange flakes (salt method)
I've also been thinking about mixing up the standard yellow and black hazard stripes - perhaps yellow and red, or white and black? Or more radical, silicon-chip green and gold?
Finally, the models I currently have have got dull bronze trim (balthasar gold and agrax earthshade) - i was wondering about a gold with red contrast paint over the top, which would hopefully give me a nice transition effect.
Obviously a lot of these recipes will depend on what the new contrast paints actually work like, but I'd like to ask your opinions on how you think these could look, and what combinations I should try. I'd also love any additional suggestions for colour schemes
An annex question I've got is if anybody has given their armies splinter warband names, rather than X Grand Company? There doesn't seem to be much of a naming convention for them currently, so am unsure on how to start
Thanks for your time
