Hi folks,

I've decided that its time to reboot my DE! I'm going for a full re-imagining - Title, fluff, colour schemes, everything!

My Kabal is going to be primarily a deep orange and black, with orange being the primary colour for the armour. The issue I want to discuss though is uniformity between my Kabal and the various wyches, hellion and reaver gangs, etc, that they are going to be hiring for their excursions into real space! I love the idea that the gangs I bring with me each have a strong individual identity and feeling of competitiveness towards their rivals (Think opposing reaver gangs gathered in a poorly light bar in the depths of Commoragh, goading each other and making wagers on who can bring back a planetary governors head!), but I am concerned that I am in danger of making my DE look like a mess on the board.

So I pose this problem to you, the overlords of Commoragh: In what ways would you suggest showing a strong emphasis on the individuality of the gangs, without making my army look an utter chaotic mess? Then again, in a culture consisting of innumerable sub-cultures, gang warfare and countless collectives claiming no allegiance to anyone but themselves... perhaps DE are an Army that can justify aesthetic chaos?

Thanks in advance for any input Smile Much love!

I would say that they probably can, but it may be taking a risk before you think for a while of how to aproach it correctly. It works very well fluff-wise but yet again what you see and precive is another thing that might be hard to get working well.

You have deamons of chaos, here it works very well for example. And some craftworld armies with a lot of different aspect warriors.

And I think it could work well for you too. The key is the colors you choose, or should I say, more the theme to get it dark and not too bright. I would choose colors that are opposing each other on the color wheel and colors that are not to close to each other, for example red and purple that can easily split. Opposite colors on the color chart with a dark theme could be your way in my opinion Smile

Well, here's how I do it. My Kabal, the primary part of my army, wears orange-tinted black with orange and yellow trim. Their hair and plumes are dyed green. My wych cult is inverted. Their armor is green, and their hair is orange. Skin tones, bodysuits, and metals remain the same on both forces.

(11/5/2013: A few things have been added to the Kabal's fluff, most notably shifting their base of operations into the Webway, sort of, and adding an alliance with the Alpha Legion, or at least a few heads of the hydra.)

Thanks very much for the input guys, sorry for the delay I've been bogged down with work as usual.

The colour charts are great, especially for a colour blind soul like myself (red is red, I see little to no difference in shade - which is fun for painting Mad )

Im hoping to start a log up soon so I am looking forward to showing you some of the prototype models Very Happy

Thanks again!
