I got the basic set up for my Kabalites color Scheme, a base of Murderous Magenta (P3), Emperors Children for highlights, Carroburg Crimson for a wash, and Leadbelcher and nuln oil for the weopons base.

I plan on priming black to darken the magenta, I like the color but dont want it too bright.

Have you seen an unconventional color scheme pulled off well for the Drukhari? Am I crazy for picking these colors? Razz

I'd check pinterest. There are some amazing schemes there. Check Harlies for interesting bright schemes too. Some of the best works are found there.

Like these amazing pieces of work:

You can still reduce the brightness by mixing your paints : add a little bit of a darker color (even 1/10th) will do the trick.

If you're afraid of it getting too flashy, applying a thinned down layer of lahmia can mattyfy your painting but
- DO TEST before using it on a completed fig (apply on miniature plastic casing your color sheme, then lahmia half of it, to compare results)
- You can apply lahmia selectively, only on your overbrighten part.


For the unusual color scheme, I've painted a white DE army, with touches of red and blue.
Currently working on a proper website to display them, but you can still check my avatar for now to have an idea :p
If you're interested I can post a couple more pics
