hey i'm using some Vostroyan models in my WH army as guard allies. I don't want use the colors that GW used, because my sob models are red and gold also. so i was thinking either brown to represent fur or leather coats, or white for winter camo. I'm getting some ideas from call of duty 2. so i was looking for what you guys think or have had expeirence with.

I think this is better suited in Painting and Terrain. Also paint them to match your army mate they are your models do as you like! ;)

You could paint them up like old school Valhallans, which they kinda already look like.

How's this? I know this is not much of a departure from the studio army, but it's sufficiently different. I used a black undercoat, highlighted up to blood red on the cloth. metal is boltgun metal, wood and leather is a base of scorched earth, with the leather having snakebite leather over top. The hat's codex grey and a heavy drybrush of skull white. Eye lenses are Dark Angels green and a (too big) dot of skull white. The black areas were (quickly) highlighted with a mix of codex grey and chaos black, with mroe chaos black than codex grey. This is the first model of my 4th Kanada regiment.

This is a WIP Vostroyan Command Squad Vox Officer that I've swapped the reds for greens on. It's Dark Angels Green as a base coat, Snot Green over the top of that and then glazed with watered down Dark Green Ink.


I like it but I've also been considering the two colours you've mentioned, Brown and White. I'm planning on picking up a blister pack of three regular troopers so I can paint up one each in one of those colours to see which I like better.
