    SM librarians - colour choice?

    I have a smurf army in the making and am about to start my librarian, was wondering about colour choice, do I do him the same colour blue as everyone else and have him blend in? In theory all librarians wear blue power armour, do they all wear ultramarinecolours? i can't see it??

    comments please

    As per the "codex", librarians are blue, techmairnes are red, chaplains are black ...

    GW painted all their "codex" librarians using the same scheme as they painted their ultramarines.

    I don't see the problem, painting him as the rest of your force, just take extra time on painting his gear/hoses/etc and he'll stand out.

    I read it wrong at first, but seeing as you're starting a Ultramarines army, the chapter most adherent to the codex, I'd say paint him blue, yes.. As that is what the codex says Librarians are.. give him an awesome base and/or paint job and he should stick out anyway..

    If you don't care all that much about the fluff nothing's wrong with giving him a darker scheme or something like that though..

    I always paint my Blood Angel librarians blue, I figure the fact they stand out is their way of saying "Come and have a go if you think you're hard enough".

    kobalt1974, are you asking what colour stands out from the rest of your army? since we BA are red, a blue marine really stand out. however since you are the ultramarine, blue is the only way to go for you......unless you have another colour scheme on your mind?
    FOR THE GREAT SANGUINIUS AND THE EMPEROR....red and black all the way.

    Not exactly, I see that eavy metal paint them the same as they paint their smurfs.. and bully for them... my question was more of a fluffy one really, I know mostly librarians wear blue power armour, and show their chapter on their shoulders, but i dont see why they wear ultramarine blue... seeing as how everyone hates guilliman and big papa smurf...

    so i was wondering what everyones opinion... and if there was a precedent somewhere that actually counts?

    You could also give him a different color of blue. I paint my regular Joe's with a Darker Blue, and my HQ's, Sgt's with a lighter blue except for Chaplains obviously. Just as a sign of rising through the ranks to make them stand out even more. Have fun!
