    Default Cygnar Alternate color scheme ideas

    My least two favorite colors are white and blue ant I'm working on getting some Cyngar stuff.

    Any suggestions for alternate Cygnar schemes that aren't largely white and blue?

    Mine (my son's really, but I did buy them ) are predominantly dark brown with cream and copper metallics. Sorry, I don't have any pictures.

    Personally I use, Gun-Bolt metal for the.....well metal parts, accented with the copper or GW (dwarven bronze) and my color scheme is Teal and like an off white almost tan, GW (Bleach Bone) and then I use a sepia wash to help give it a finished look.

    The civil war themes are always popular, or go with an olive, more modern military color. Also, I've always thought desert themes would be good on them too.

    Then make purple lightning instead of the blue electricity. Now I want to paint Cygnar...

    I've been thinking about doing my 'jacks up in one of the blue/gray/yellow WWII Luftwaffe color schemes, or a blue/gray like the Panzer tank series. Someone has already done an outstanding US Army Green Siege army, but I can't find the photos for the life of me. Another great option would be the Gallian Army blue/white/red scheme from Valkyria Chronicles, especially since so many dress uniforms had a gold motif as well.

    I really like bold schemes in Cygnar-

    Every time I see your Caine, Ghool, I imagine it's Liam Neeson doing his Taken monologue. It's so good it absorbs cool out of entirely other types of media.

    Better question is, "does this mean we're going to start running False Flag ops against Khador, since they're doing it to us?"

    Gray is a good alternative to blue in the faction. I use Ironhull Gray if I have something that I want to look different. I still incorporate Cygnar blue in by painting a plate of armor or accessory with it.

    So this is helping me somewhat, but I still have the same problem I "HATE" blue and white. I'm trying to find a scheme that doesn't' use them at all.

    Green and brown, modern Olive drab.
    i'm doing a Caine led "Black 13th" list as my little deviance into cygnar. It's predominantly black and bronze, a more realistic version of Fort Falk's as demonstrated by Ghool, and much more stealthy and dark. Accent colors i use are blue, green, and brown, just for the little bits, but black and bronze will go with whatever color you like.

    I've done some Cygnar up for a friend in scheme inspired by the Captain America movie, so it's mainly camo green, with blue and red for accents. Don't have too many pictures, but here's one:

    PG_Ghool's Caine is spot on for my idea for troops. Just use a different color for the kerchief and there's no blue at all.

    As far as jacks, gray would be great. Accent color maybe an olive, maybe pale brown/ornage like PhyscoLaugh's link. Depends what shade you go with, either darker orange with lighter gray, or vise versa.

    A hot purple electricity would pop really well against that as long as the orange is not too bright. Could stick with the yellow Cygnus for compliment color, or orange Cygnus/accent for a triad.

    Honored you were intrigued by my idea, hope this helps. Really like the purple lightning, want a 'jack so bad now hehe.
