Hi folks,

I'm going to paint my Stormcast as Astral Templars but I'm not sure what colour to paint the Stormdrake Guard dragons. I've put a pic below of the scheme (not my paintjob). Thanks for any advice ^^

I mean.. That looks fantastic. Are there any other contenders for scheme of choice?

I tried taking a couple of colour swatches from the model (not easy to get the 'true' colour!) and throwing them at a colour wheel. From darkest to lightest the armour results all looked something a little like this:

Given that you're using blue for your hair (is that hair?), perhaps a green? =]

No, I really want to do these guys after reading Hamilcar: Champion of the Gods, he's like the AoS version of Ciaphas Cain ๐Ÿ˜†

Oh yeah it might have helped to tell you that's Screamer Pink with a Nuln Oil wash xD

That would have been helpful, yeah ๐Ÿ˜‚

All the examples I can find are box scheme blue-green with a white belly/wings, which would actually work quite well I think.
If you went pure ivory then you might find that it ends up looking too plain. That and a giant pale dragon would probably look a bit odd! ๐Ÿ˜…

Typically I can't find any examples of them with Astral Templar riders...
