I actually kind of liked the slightly bluish purple with the bright green symbols.I wasn't sold at first, but it's better than that god awful purple and green that the Old Index Astartes had. The pearlescent blue would probably look okay if it was a bit darker, but we all know that GW/FW can't take pictures. Look at Vulkan!
Lord no, that's horrible. I had a thought about collecting AL as a result of that article (one of the first WD's I ever bought I think) and seeing their post heresy colour scheme, until it became too hard. But then I saw the 30K one, and while I didn't like it especially, I tried to paint it with old Liche Purple and Snot Green, and my god it looked horrible, like some crap shirt out of some 90's TV show or what you'd wear to a rave at the Hacienda. Not to mention it's a fairly similar colour to the Emperor's Children, and now the pearlescent/metallic mid-blue scheme is easily recognisable as not-Ultramarines and not-Night Lords despite the superficial similarities.I actually kind of liked the slightly bluish purple with the bright green symbols.
