When I finally got round to thinking about the paint scheme for the team, I wanted to select something with a lot of visual presence. Skaven always seem to work well with nice bright colour schemes on their gear, in contrast the the natural skin and fur tones. I set to work with an online colour wheel tool to see what I could come up with.
I quite fancied orange as the primary colour; using the Colour Scheme Designer, it was a simple exercise to find the matching complementary colour (teal).
To provide contrast against the bright orange, I selected a dark flesh colour and grey for the fur (I figured brown would be too warm with all the orange). Here's the resulting painted team:
|Blitzer - Thrower - Blitzer
|Gutter Runners (Catchers for you older players!)
|More Gutter Runners
I was really pleased with how the team turned out - the painting was pretty much my top level across the whole team. I was even more pleased that I received a 'Best Painted Team' nomination at the NAF Championship 2013.
Next time, I'll cover my coaching staff, re-rolls and the team's display base.
