I have a Wood Elf army and I'm thinking of starting up a High Elf army. Naturally, I've been thinking and looking around for what color schemes look good etc. What colors have y'all found especially good? Pictures are much appreciated!
Armies: Wood Elves, High Elves
Warbands Campaign 07: 1st
San Antonio Alamo GT
Red and gold looks really good, I have a fair few pictures of my army in the showcase if you go to my album here.
Have a look through the army book, they show a few different schemes. Green can look really good with either silver or gold, and of course blue is the classic colour.
One scheme which I though was particulalry striking is the scheme from the front of the old Warhammer box - blue caled irridescent armour (silver, blue ink wash, drybrush with gold, pink, siver "marbled") with shining golden helmets..
I had a unit of spearmen painted with this scheme until I opted to repaint them more conventionally.
I have in the past painted my White Lions with black armour, highlighting the scales red, and also seen the armour painted red lacquer, which contrasts well with the white of the lion cloaks.

Generaly as long as white (of some kind, fortress grey etc) is the main colour of your elves, everything from blue to brown looks nice as a secondary colour.
The bright blues from hawk turquoise work realy well, but so too does a deep red or green, depending on the theme and flavour of your army.
An important factor is getting your gems the right colour. you want to be able to see them but you dont want them clashing with secondary colours. I find blue can work with green or red gems, green with blue and red, and red with blue or green. Try not to mix gems across your army as it loses coherancy.
