Help me choose a colour scheme for my Knight!
« on: March 28, 2017, 02:25:17 AM »
Hi everyone, so i got one of the last Knights Renegade Boxes for Christmas and am in the Process of Building and painting the first Knight.
I'm having some problems deciding on a Color-Scheme and am hoping on Your input to help me decide!

The Knight will be a Freeblade, so no worries about sticking to any premade GW-Scheme.
My main Army that the Knight will ally to are Blood-Angels, so mostly red, black and a bit of gold, also bright green highlights.
The gaming table is going to be some Armageddon-like wasteland so mostly khaki and grey.

So at the moment i'm thinking i'll either paint it red&black to tie into the Blood Angels or some quite bright green for maximum contrast but i can't really decide  ::)

I also like the yellow Knights i have seen a lot but if i ever paint more than 4 Tyranids, my Tyranids will bee quite yellow so maybe that's enough bellow.
Other options might be some bright blue or dark lilac.


ATM it's mostly deciding on contrast with the Army or blending in.
What do you think?

Medium to bright i guess.Pretty much Mephiston Red with strong Edgehighlighting for the vehicles. Some of the Marines are a bit brighter like Evil Sunz Scarlett.
I'm trying to get them a bit Darker, especially by switching to black as a second color.

For any color the knight will become i probably want to try my hand at a good blending effect from a very Dark Base to a bright highlight, yeah!

So do that with a Green or Blue would be good.

Hmm the thought of painting something different than red does start to appeal to me, trending towards green. Thanks for the input!

Any other opinions?

Bone maybe, a good contrast to the red but you should have a little of it in your force already.

Having a little of the new color in the force is perfect! I still want the knight to look like it belongs to them even if it has a different base color! Still making it completely bone is a bit too much i think, since it will tie him too much into the terrain and i want him to stick out!

So, the skeleton will be mostly silver, possilbly quite dark.

At the moment i think base color should be green (CalibanGreen => WarpstoneGlow => MootGreen)
The Trim will probably get a brass/copper color, or gold if brass looks too shabby.

Now there should be an alternative color for some of the split armor tiles.
I could go for simple black.
Or Hazard Stripes which are always cool, but that might be tooo colourful.
Or the bone you proposed could work quite well i think!
