    Hi all!

    Recently started ammassing my Seraphon Army, and I'm now at the point where I want to paint these bad boys!
    I really like the Dracothion's tail scheme which can be seen in the Seraphon Battletome on P.26 if I remember correctly. Problem is they don't tell you exactly which paint you need to replicate the schemes shown, and as a colorblind person I don't feel quite sure about which paints I should get!

    Has anyone out there already painted some using this scheme? Or can anyone come up with the appropriate paints?

    Hey it looks good to me! Also do you think Khorne Red would do a better job for the shield?

    I can supply these pictures for you. Lighting isn't great but until you're able to get better ones, I hope these will do.

    Khorne red is darker but it would still work
