Good to see another Jade Army commander!
Nice color combination, I really like it.
Thanks guys! Wish I could get them to perform as well as they look!
Hi, I'm new so I started painting the starters pack, this is my colour schema
this last one is a WIP
I am thinking of an dark blue scheme with orange trims. Teal visors could look good.
Maybe red/white or orange helmets might look nice.
I only have the mowang and a limited edition guijia lying around for now. Haven't started painting it so far. Have to finish my JSA first.
I ended up falling a bit in love with the Daoying color scheme for IA, so I decided to see what I can push it onto successfully. For most of the models so far I’m just swapping the Daoying’s dark blue for the dark green spots of Yu Jing troops.
It works well with two exceptions: The Mowang and Haidao models look weird to me in blue and yellow for some reason. I haven’t gotten to the point of doing proper shading yet and the yellow areas should look better when toned down to the gold-orange I’m trying to achieve on the Haidao.
I’m seriously considering redoing the whole paintjob on my one Mowang though, possibly to a mostly grey look with some colorful accents? Anybody have a Mowang paint job they’re really proud of you’d like to share?
Giving me 90s X-Men vibes, I love it.
The Hulang? Start by filing the studs off their helmet, looks like a refugee from GW or Rifts...
White skull might be more interesting.
AHAHA it wasn't the idea, but now that you point it out, I think I'll work on it for some detail.
Lt lvl2 in a wheelchair please (if you wait for Quang Giao, you can even have it bald).
My alternative Zuyongs.
Uh, that's some nice stuff right there @Pythos !
I do really like your red/grey combo. Not 100% sure about the guns, even if I find it cool.
I thought the guns would be too bland if they were black/grey and wanted sort of a futuristic PMC/tan gun look.
I'm now wondering if I should have gone with tan/black instead of tan/brown on the guns...
Definitely tan/brown over tan/black imho.
I don't think you need to change anything actually, the more I look at them, the more beautiful they are! ;)
I know this is a thread dedicated to colors schemes but what about bases? Are there any base themes that you think would would with IA or how about themes you have done yourself?
I found this new rolling pin from Green Stuff World that would fit any Yu Jing army:
Looks like i found my first thing to buy from GSW! Thanks!
I actually have this roll. I wasn't able to get optimal results since there is really fine detail and the green stuff tends to get stuck everywhere but where you want it. But with a little shrubbery und sand the bases look amazing.
Green stuff isn't that great for rolling pins application a baking clay is away better. I've been using R pins for years
and hard artist baking clay works like a charm.
A few examples.
Ugh, I really wish these companies, CB included, to actually research the Chinese characters they want to use or better yet hire a Chinese speaker/consultant to proofread. Avatar the last Airbender could do it, so can they! It's really irritating, at this day and age, to see gibberish when it can be easily avoided.
Excuse my ignorance... But what's wrong with this? I'm curious (and if I can learn smthg it's always good).
