Personally, I think that's a great scheme!

Highly unusual and I think that somehow you managed to make the purple work.  8-)

The purple is a vallejo colour called  blue violet (70811) with GM's purple wash over it then re highlighted with (70811). I washed over this with black wash to give it a less crisp look (didn't want people thinking I was a bloody Boganhofen  :icon_rolleyes:

Thanks for the replies, looks like everyone likes it so far, will paint more and get decent pics next week.

Happy Hunting
Nick

Hey, that's me!^^
Great paint job. I particulary like the highlights on the Great Sword on the far left.
Now, that big, large banner needs a distinct Sylvanian icon!^^ I think I've read somewhere that drakes were the emblem of the province, but it was so long ago...

The colors look good but watch the Bögenhafen comments!  At least we don't have a bunch of bloodsuckers returning every few generations and ruining our graveyards by constantly trying to turn our ancestors into the living dead.

Almost there...my freehand banners need work  :icon_redface:

The latin Victis Extraho means Time of the Dragon. On the top of the banner pole is the hourglass from the mage kit. C&C please esp on how to improve the banner (be nice  :icon_wink: )

Here's my Stank - the engineer. I found this bloody hard to put together as it required huge amounts of greenstuff. CC welcome as always.
