So what is the actual colour scheme of Craft World Altansar?

Here (http://uk.games-workshop.com/download/popup.htm?/eldar/craftworld-guardians/images/4lg.jpg)

But some members of the forum denies this...:)

its what ever you want it to be mate, thats one possible permutation of the scheme. Just try to stick to the same colours and paint it how ever you want to.

Horrible, horrible official colour scheme... I guess they were trying to get them to look like slaanesh with the pink/black.

I rather like the idea of a dark flesh-type shade for the armour... I've got experience of painting/ highlighting that colour with an entire beastman army, it can look pretty good.

Thinking of going with a scheme that's something like this: http://www.coolminiornot.com/137227

The new Eldar codes has it as Red Gore and Chaos Black.
The picture (both above and in the codex) need to be color-corrected (saturation too high?).

Here is a quick color correction:

What I took away from the wacky Altansar color scheme was that it had a Chaos-y feel to it. Not quite Slaaneshi purple, but similarly garish. I would think that any suitably loud color scheme would be just fine.

yeah, I dont like their colour-scheme either, if their suppose to be ghostly, I think they should be light blues, whites and greys personally.

This is what I was thinking as well... It was listing red gore but showing some garish pinkish red....

That's because they painted the Red Gore over a white undercoat, which makes it into a garish pinkish red.

With my Altansar army, I'm using a black undercoat, a Dark Flesh basecoat, and watered-down coat of Red Gore over that. Gives it a much more brownish, "drier" crimson-y red.

This answers some confusion I was having as I was following the paint scheme but the guardians were now where near pink enough to match the book just using red gore.

Thanks
