    To be honest am not too sure. I have access to.most factions. Have been eyeing pan o recently but the current meta here is fairly heavy on pan o and nomads. Not much love for ariadna, tohaa, and yu jing currently. I dislike the orange scheme of yu jing and have not come across a colour scheme that I like for yu jing as yet. Will have to think about it some more

    @bayushi I would check faction threads and search online for color schemes. See what other people have come up with. I'm confidant you will find something you will like for a Yu Jing force. Maybe go for a 10 order list with two HI to paint up first?

    I have been looking throughout FB and the forums for alternate colour schemes. So far the most common alternate colour is based on jade green as a main colour. Have been thinking of white as the base colour but that may look to much like JSA. I like the jade green but am looking for something that will be really different for YJ. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!!

    PS There are some fantastic painters out there like @lefrank and @Nathelis who have done superb paintjobs for YJ.

    Sorry for taking so long.

    One idea for the main color could be blue. In Chinese culture blue stands for wood, immortality & enhancement. Yellow is for earth, imperial/royal & Buddhism. Red means fire, good fortune & joy. Green is associated with health, prosperity & harmony but can also mean infidelity. White correlates with metal, represents gold, brightness, purity & fulfillment but also mourning. Black is the color of water, heaven & north. Ancient China honored black more than the other colors & it was known as the king of colors.

    Looking up the different meaning colors have in cultures is a great way to get an idea for a color scheme.

    Thanks for the tips and suggestions. I appreciate it. I do know each colour significance for Chinese (I'm of Chinese descent) and what each colour means. Its just that I cannot figure out what will look good on the YJ design aesthetic. CB has done a fairly good job in cementing the faction colours so much so that I cannot imagine how YJ models will look in blue without being immediately associating it with Pan-O for example. I have been toying with white for ISS but have yet to decide on a contrasting colour (even then I think of JSA when i imagine white YJ models).

    I have been doing my Yu Jing in a dark blue color. Maybe that would work out for you too?

    As for the White ISS, I think it worth a try. I bet with your painting skills it will turn out really nice. If you worry about them looking like JSA then don't add a red to the color scheme. However I have my Combined Ur units in a red, white & dark gray colors and they look good to me.

    It's nothing in term of quality (especially compared to yours) but you can find what blue/purple YJ could looks like here: http://koin.koin.free.fr/NPSG/
