Zoatibix Posted December 24, 2012 Share Posted December 24, 2012 Greetings, brothers. I'm starting to work on a few ideas for my DA Successors. One thing I always struggle with is choosing a paint scheme and sticking to it. I've come up with a few ideas and wondered if you would mind letting me know your opinions. My successors regard the Fallen as traitors no more heinous than any other. They are to be killed or captured but DIY chapter do not put their current mission at risk for the Hunt. I like the dark, slightly sinister look of this. I still think of Dark Angels as being black armoured and this green a passing fad by GW! Really, it just mixes up the standard colours. However, we are inundated with Traitor legionnaires at my game club at the moment...many of whom are painted in either black or very dark colours. And the loyalists are BT or Ravenguard! It gets a bit samey, and depressing! Next variant is a nod towards AoA. And my obsession with painting things bone...which perhaps i should move away from. Although I do like the contrast with the black robes. The black robes here represent DIY Chapter's shame at having to keep the Dark Angels' secret. Or a split between the Legion/Chapter colours of DA. IIRC a very similar scheme was used in the 'create a successor' competition a while back. Apologies to whoever that was! I tried to find the thread again but could not. I've put the left (sinister) as the original Legion colours as I felt that was most fitting :P I like black, I like bone...green robes can also kinda work which ends up with the next scheme but this might be a tad busy? And also I think the Bone/Black split is similar to a BA successor chapter (although this is perhaps unavoidable with so many chapters) Lastly, I'm quite fan of Arkley's scheme. Again, the robes represent the burden of imposed upon the chapter by their progenitors. Or...very lastly... just stick with the DA scheme but use black robes. This would be some kind of penance that the company is on having allowed several Fallen to have eluded their grasp (presumably while fulfilling their proper and correct duty to the God-Emperor!)
