I forgot to add the poll. Please comment on the reasons why you choose the province you did.
I agree I really wanted to do averland color scheme as its closest to the Holy roman empire. However, the thought of painting yellow on black is daunting. I have done it some with my bret knights and it takes a LONG time.Averland -> Yellow and black make for very striking models on the tabletop. The yellow is hard to paint (especially quickly) though.
LAZY! Paint the black onto the yellow. Start with a white basecoat, rather than copping out and using black. Black over a white coat will give a "not quite black" color which can then be shaded with black inks. You actually gain from painting the lighter color first. Yeah, it's an extra step, but it actually saves time in the long run, and looks better.However, the thought of painting yellow on black is daunting.
