I have the HE armies book and have read the history, but would like insight to the following question;

Do the lands of Nagarythe still hold citizen troops with their colour scheme or just the Shadow Warriors? (meaning archers and spearmen, calvary, etc..).

The reason I ask is I wish to paint my HE in a different colour than the blue and silver. In the HE armies book there is a shield from Nagarythe coloured black background with a blue/gold emblem. Under the shield it states 'The Elves of Nagarythe favour a black field for their Shields'.

Does this mean that Nagarythe still field archers and spearmen and not just shadow warriors? If so, they can be coloured like the shadow warriors paint scheme?

Let me know what you guys think or if there are any great links to HE paint schemes I would appreciate it.
