I'm thinking of starting seraphon but am having an unexpected challenge: Deciding on a color scheme. While many armies have 1-3 core colors, and a few often tied to realism (metal colored weapons, wood color etc.) seraphon are giving me trouble in starting out since there are so few constraints and so many different types of creatures. So picking a color scheme seems more difficult than usual. Combined with the fact that they look lovely in many and bright colors I'm not even sure where to start, let alone how to start painting test minis. I tend to want to make my own scheme rather than use one of the stock ones. Teaches me something about color theory every time, but seraphon are out of my modest skill. 1) How do people pick a coherent scheme? The way I see it there are ~8 different colors needed. a Saurus b Skinks c Big Dinos (Do you group them? Do carnos get a different color from stegaons d Rippers/Terradons e Ruins (like on all the stagdons) f Base g shields h highlights (often gold) 2) Of the above how do people group them? 3) Do people generally do all the big dinos with the same colors? 4) are skinks usually the same color as saurus? 5) Has anybody tried non-jungle bases? I was thinking maybe snow or beach or sand dunes or something. Not all seraphon can be jungle... 6) Has anybody tried more shades of a single color. For example, all different colors of blue with a few highlight colors? Googling has been no help since they all mostly look quite good. I guess thats maybe reassuring that I can't go wrong but doesn't make it easier either.
