Can anyone tell me if chaplain's armour is suposed to be black or not????:wacko: And if it does whats the best way to link it into your army colour scheme. thnx
Dnt judge my judgments plz
Its not my fault, blame some other guy
The armor is supposed to be _mostly_ black. You can still have some parts in your Chapter colours.
And of course, the Chapter heraldry.
Personally, I think that the best idea is to have a shoulderpad with Chapter colors and symbol, and one kneepad as well.
Tradition says that the Chaplain's armour is black with one shoulderpad in the Chapter colours, but it isn't manditory.
You could have a chapie in your chapter colours, trimmed in black with a lot of skulls.

To take this one step further - according to the Insignium Astartes the left shoulderpad bears the company colors/markings. Otherwise the armor is black.
One thing you can do to bring it closer to your chapter vision and still keep an "official" look would be to make the trim the same color as your regular marines.

WHat i'm doing is making my chappie white, just to be different. It'll make it stand out heaps against the red armour of the rest of the chapter, while tying it in because the shoulderpads and other details are white or the normal SM's. Although it's not strictly as they're meant to be, i recon it'll look cool and no ones going to not let me use because he's painted differently. I also recon it'll tie in more with the whole chaplain thing, being pure, rather then dark and evil kinda thing. I say paint it how who wish, but in a away that still shows it's different and higher in rank then the rest of your army. Anywho that's my thoughts.
Just remember that you can tint black.
Whatever colour is the main colour in your army, add that to black to create an extremely dark shade of the main colour.
It can give the black a subtle colour effect that will help it blend in with the rest of your army.
Worth a try
