Something like that could work. I can't help but feel that a Legion named the Black Talons should have black featured heavily in the armour colours.

Reverse those colours on the one Anphicar posted and that might be cool....

Heres my submission. Its quite close to the other ones already demonstrated, its Chaos Black and Catachan Green with Bleached Bone. I think it looks best with very little Bleached bone so that eyes stand out. The Chapter symbol would go one the green shoudler pad. I'm not sure about crests and stuff. Ive made the breast symbol on this one green but I think that any 8 arrowed stars should be in bone. I can't think of any other legions having this scheme and it does look Undividedy but what do you guys think?



Thanks to Jez and Jig for helping me save the image.

I see them in a more Red Corsairs role, not so much being crazy chaos'd out but being something like the mid-heresy Night Lords.

Hmm, I'm gonna really sit on this color scheme thing. I see alot of bits of claws & blades on the models, maybe with some crazed veterans with stump-power weapons. I also see balds heads similar to the Borg queen, pallid with metal talons pulling the skin back in a rictus grin. Maybe their chaplains do such?

Psst... I did that in the first reply on this thread :D

Oh....er....yeah. I knew that :lol:


I have to say I am fairly taken with the scheme Jacobite has showing there. Mostly black armour but the green/bone mix is a nice colour that you don't see too often. Also has a more evil feel to it imho. I would also do the eyes in a contrasting colour like a red or bright orange. I have to finish painting my daemon prince for Games Day but once I get that done, I will paint up a terminator in these colours for sure. The more I look at them, the more I like them.

How did you select Catachan green though Jac?

As an aside, I think that once we do pick a colour scheme, we should do a step by step tutorial on how we painted them up, complete with pics.

Hi Wraith I'm glad you like it, I thought it could look either really good or really bad, seems somebody thinks its the former. I did try it with red eyes but it just didn't seem to fit, it looks kinda out of place with the other colours. I like the peircingness of the bone personally. I just re-did it again and it looks fine without the green on the chest plate but still doesn't seem to work with 'hot' coloured eyes.

I'm not sure I understand the nature of your question however, Carachan Green is the top colour of the 3rd column from the right. Or did you mean what possessed me to put that in the scheme. To be honest I was just playing around with Bones and Browns and thought I would just give it a shot. So I did and it seemed to work.

When I have finished my =I= which WILL be tomorrow (just finished putting the last of the green stuff on his arms today, the body is already painted) I will do a Chaos Marine up in those colours if some other people think the colour scheme works.

Any thoughts on it should I?, shouldn't I?

Nice Talon Anphicar.

Heres the colour scheme I came up with on the new template. The Green didn't come out as well as it could have. I'm going to do a test mini up while I'm waiting for my green stuff to dry, if nobody minds that is.
