Looking for Different Abyssinian Colour scheme

I'm leaning towards purple and bronze, but I haven't broken out the paints in a while so we'll see how far that idea goes.

Hey me too! I haven't painted much but looking to change that with TOS, but my thoughts were for these exact same colours, with some changes depending upon unit type to make it a bit easier to distinguish them at a glance.

Pictures look great, I've seen pics of someone else's project who has tried a yellow scheme. but the depth and choice of shade colours you have used is much more effective.

I've tried a number of things and been less than pleased with the results, I did try a copper and green scheme however which I do like.

Me likey! I was thinking about something similar except the purple and turning they yellow into a more desert-tone.

Thanks everyone! The purple is because prince will have his cloak purple (royal color, you know), and i wanted the mehal have the purple of the prince for beign royal guards, but the rest of the army wont have it.

 

I will keep uploading photos as i finish them :)

How did you do the bases? I'm tempted by the GW texture paints TBH...

Vallejo desert terrain effect. After use it, a friend talked me about GW terrain effects, but are a lot more spensive (the vallejo effect was over 12€ and is huuuge).

Thanks. I'll look for it. Did you do anything with it or just put it on the base and let it dry?

Just put it. I've tried with a spoon, putty knife, a card... and the best result is with the finger. Prepare to get dirty hahaha

That would be more Assyrian I think.

So i just started my army with the electrocutioners, which i did with a shiny silver and light blue tone, however, i dont think i will keep that for the other units, since i want the electrocutioners to stand out as the ones in the really shiny new tech, that hasn't even been painted yet (also works out better as a Faraday's cage without paint). I quite like the idea of purple bronze or purple and a steely type of colour, might try that out.

I am however very much a beginner and dont know at all what i am doing so...

This would be the first electrocutioner:IMG-20200212-WA0002.thumb.jpeg.83977b4328e053aad31cdc73e3120765.jpeg
