I am sorry you feel that way. Is was meant to be humorous.

 

 

Shouldn't they just be Grey? tongue.png

One thing I don't get, is why people insist on painting Grey Knights as steel coloured astartes when novelia/lore clearly and always refers to them as silver-coloured angels. Shouldn't the colour scheme by that logic be silver?

 

 

I fail to find that post constructive or humorous.

The preferred color (or colourtongue.png) of your Grey Knights armour (or armortongue.png) is a subjective thing. There's no right way or wrong way or best way or worst way to paint your GK's. It's all in the eye of the beholder. It's also fine to express your like or dislike of a particular color scheme. This can all be a very useful and lively discussion. Just make sure YOU understand and everyone else understands that it's just your opinion.

 

There are so many variations on the grey metal armour scheme. You can even paint them silver, or even gray (I've seen both of these as well). I've seen GK armour described as unpainted ceramite covered armor. So, what color is ceramite really?.... gray, silver-gray, what? GW depicts GK models painted in a blue hued bright silver-grey scheme, but they never say it must be this way. "Silver" as a literary word is often used to describe something as bright or shinny or brightly shinning and not necessarily literally silver. Of course it can literally mean "silver" too.

 

Humor can also be a subjective thing, but it's still generally a good thing and definitely has its place here. Just don't be overtly or purposefully offensive.

This......

I'm sure Brother InKaras understands my above point concerning GK color and was simply expressing it in a light humorous way. It wasn't meant to be offensive and probably not meant to be particularly constructive (not every post must be strictly constructive) either.... just light. It could have been effectively stated without the attached quote though.

 

.......and that's my opinion.

For what it's worth, if someone wants to paint his GKs bright blue and enjoys doing so, more power to them! After all, 40k is all about YOUR dudes, and everyone should enjoy their hobby time as they like it best, especially during those nurgle-cursed times!

 

Also: less disputing on how grey is wrong and more posting of the miniatures!

Here goes!
