Blue and Red Scheme
Lilac and Blue Scheme
Yellow and Blue Scheme
I'm having a real problem choosing a colour scheme for my new Slaanesh Army! - I hate pink so these are my various ideas! Which one do you guys like?
I actually got my ideas from the website CoolMiniOrNot - The Internet's largest gallery of Painted Miniatures and Miniature Painting art
It's my second point of inspiration second to my girlfriend, who althought entertians my hobby actually rolls off some very interesting ideas which always keep me second guessing my ideas.
So here are some examples of what I was talking about. I think these work very well In there own rights.
NONE OF THESE MINIS ARE PAINTED NOR CONVERTED BY MYSELF.
Blue and Red Colour scheme.
Lilac and Blue Colour scheme. I love this scheme.
Yellow and Blue scheme.
I think out of all the scheme I like the second the most.
It's trying to estimate what colours were used because those pastelly colours look hard to achieve.
Has anyone got any clue?
Thanks for all the help.
My homage to my time spent at Libararium Online:
As I have suggested to you before, I think the blue and purple one looks really good. I would add some grey or cream in as well, but overall I think its a solid scheme.
As long as it's not an overtly masculine color I think it's fine for Slaanesh. I'm actually test painting a daemonette with a baby blue skin tone. Think the twi-leks from Star Wars and you'll get the idea. The point being that just because it's Slaanesh doesn't mean it has to be painted like a Valentine Card. I applude your decision to avoid pink.
Edit: I like all the paint schemes. So I didn't vote. Maybe use all three? It is Chaos after all, they don't have to be all alike.

Not enough pink
nah, but seriously, as long as it isnt a muted earthy tone, it's all good.
Purple/pink + silver/gold with bright green bits scores points with me
Kinda like This , but green instead of blue sword and "collar"
Heck, even full polished chrome armour with gold trim would be slaaneshi.
(check out sigvald the magnificient fluff as to why)
i went with the lilac blue, sweetness. i mean LILAC....
ok so yeah ithink its a nice color scheme and im with Kuffy thrown in some cream maybe grey
I can understand the aversion to pink, but I think it's going to be hard to avoid a "pastel" look. After all, Slaanie's all about bold, bright color, to feed the enhanced senses of her minions. No, it doesn't have to be pink, but neon lime green, electric blue, something like that I think is appropos.
I think that yellow and blue scheme are the best but that is due to the person doing the painting being a better painter than the other two painters. I do think that lilac and blue scheme is good too. I would say if you can achieve the yellow and blue one go for it but if you prefer the lilac and blue do that. It is more original I think.
I voted for the lilac one, like the majority here so far it seems.
Purpley/Pinky colours just seem to suit Slaaneshi armies more in my opinion, with that combination you could almost get a bruised appearance on them - kinky buggers!
