To those of you who’ve read the novel, what do you think the cults color scheme would be for brood brothers, vehicles and other units?

Purely on the name, I'm thinking a tie-dye effect for the infantry, and a hippy-camper-van look on the armoured vehicles (complete with CND icons to represent the four arms of the Emperor...)

Some quotes I picked through suggests the common thread (heh) is white cloth (robes, tabards, etc) with their vehicles painted purple. Carapace appears to be the typical blue. Apply plenty of spiral icons to taste. The colours you use for the Brood Brothers will depend on if you want them to represent traitor Black Flags.

 

 

The shadow had been alone in the cargo hold of the Iron Calliope for almost three months when the throng of white-garbed travellers came on board

 

Surprised, he swung round and several boxes fell from the top of his haul. A girl was appraising him with frank curiosity. She wore the white jumpsuit of a common pilgrim, but the only spiral he could see was the one stitched to her breast pocket.

 

They reached the bodies a few minutes later. There were two males and a female. All wore rubberised black jumpsuits under rough-spun white tabards decorated with spirals.

 

The left arm looked normal, but the right was sheathed in glistening blue chitin from the elbow down.

 

White-robed Spiralfire Acolytes walked openly among the crowd, their hoods thrown back to reveal bulbous, bone-crested skulls and purple flesh. They moved in a loping crouch, as if they were stalking some unseen prey. Most sported deviant, chitin-covered arms in addition to the natural two, and their jutting jaws were filled with fangs. They were hybrid creatures, their kinship to the feral four-armed monsters Senka had occasionally glimpsed all too apparent

 

A pair of hulking, malformed brutes wielding industrial hammers lumbered behind the truck on trunk-like legs, and behind them came a swarm of hunched, demi-human horrors in white robes.

 

That’s an autocannon, Rostyk realised as he zigzagged towards the enemy Sentinel. It was still recognisably a Black Flag machine, but its canopy had been sprayed purple and emblazoned with a jagged spiral. More importantly, its antipersonnel gun had been replaced with a heavier weapon, turning it into a vehicle killer

 

Goliath trucks and mesa buggies were pulling up alongside the carriages then speeding on towards the fortress, their decks and cabins crowded with survivors. Senka felt a visceral thrill as the truck bearing the Primus appeared. The vehicle’s purple bodywork was adorned with savage spirals and a cult banner rose from its deck.

 

Fresh troops surged onto the gatehouse from the courtyard below. As they fanned out along the wall a purple Sentinel raced past, strafing the battlements with bullets.
