    Yes it is entirely possible to paint them a different scheme, it will have no effect what so ever and will still be entirly tourney legal.

    Yeah.
    It says so in Codex: Craftworld Eldar, just above the CWE summary in the first few pages.
    My Biel-Tann army is black, with Orange above. and they've got their own name (Craftworld Exarn)
    And i sometimes (i know i shouldn't) use the Ulthwe rules instead.

    That brings up an interesting idea... What if you painted your army in an Ulthwe scheme, but you want to use a different craftwolrd, can i do it since it is already painted ulthwe?

    Jep. It is even possible to use rules for specific craftworlds on your own homebrew craftworld. It says so in the codex. My point: If you like the rules for a specific craftworld, use them. Its legal.

    My friend plays Ulthwé with a baby blue and purple colour scheme. (He says they&#39;re blue and dark blue, hah... right..)

    So it is very legal, even though you use a very gay colour scheme. But i think it&#39;s a bit confusing when armies painted in Ulthwé colours claim to be Biel-Tan and vice versa... :hmm:

    Excellent. I started my Eldar as Ulthwe, with rules and color scheme. I like both the color scheme and rules, but often Biel-tann has been very tempting, as are most aspect squads, so I may end up switching craftworlds while maintaining the colorscheme.

    Although that&#39;s allowed. It would be frowned upon. And is missing the point a bit, as it means that the 5 Craftworlds&#39; colours have no meaning.
    Ulthwe are black, coz that is the Eldar colour of mourning. So having them with lots of battle hungry aspect warriors would be a bit odd...

    I don&#39;t think players should have a pre-determined army using other pre-determined army rules. They can use the original army list, but not a completly different one.

    Dark angels using Ultramarine rules, for example, would be completly unacceptable&#33;&#33;&#33;
    I believe. :closedeyes:

    Since Ultramarines are the same as vanilla marines, it would be completely acceptable.

    I don&#39;t see any reason why someone&#39;s preference in colour schemes should act as a limit on their preference of play styles.
