Default Purple Ultramarines?

I've been looking for inspiration for my heresy army and I came across the below picture, is it weird to have purple ultramarines or should I stay away from it?

That looks blue, and whats wrong with having a codex birthed from the Ultramarines Legion, who wear purple armour? Why avoid it?

Really?

Because I'm on about a Legion army of Ultramarines from 30k not a chapter from 40k

Aha dumbass me misread that. Why is this still a big issue, paint the army whatever way you want. It wont be fluffy as their was a lot of pre-determined colours for all the legions, but you can make up your own fluff and say a company of Ultramarines earned the honour to repaint their armour a different colour.

Seriously, who is going to kick up a stink about this one simple thing?

Hmm well legions all started off with the same colour and only began to get new ones during campaigning etc. I see your point though, it's just I want to be fluffy I'd like to imagine my army taking part in the crusade/heresy.

It still looks pretty blue, just a different shade with an interesting light source.

What do you think is the best way to replicate it? and is the trimming and symbol yellow or gold, because I think they may look like soul drinkers other wise heh.

Yeah, I'd seen that one before, it's very nice, especially because it's "real" size as well, the colour though is still very blue, I want the blue bordering on purple, a very rich blue.
