What ever colors we settle on if the organizer could post the colors references for exact paint types by name from the different paint companies.


Sann can obviously organise as he sees fit, but in past years the specific paint selection has been up to the contributor - the colours have been thematic rather than prescriptive. The main difficulty, is that without knowledge of all the common paint ranges, it is very hard to specify the paints. Personally, I think variation and interpretation is part of the charm :)

Also, if we can start claiming players, can I please have a catcher, #4!

Any chance of still swinging the vote around to NAF colours?
No devoted NAF officals (or better: NAF bribed members of the forum) who can still vote for the Black/Red/White?

I have looked up italian like parts of the Old World (I need to mention, that I know absolutly nothing about Warhammer the likes) and I came up with Tilea, which is like a renissance like Italy. For the love of GW I couldn't find any colours or banners or such.
But I am sure somebody on this forum could provide details...!

Edit: And what Axiom says about colours!

In terms of a reference, I wasn't so much worried about a specific paint name or trying to pick the closest paint form Citidal/Humbrol/Vallejo/Revell etc.

I just want a guide as to are we looking at Sky Blue, Royal Blue, Navy Blue.

I've done the last couple of years (and we did White and Blue 2 years ago which is why i didn't vote for that) and last years pink had a range of shades starting from a 'Hot Pink' reference (i think) but looked really good when the whole team was together.

So just to be clear as it looks Blue and White is head and shoulders above the others, is our reference: the Italian National footbal team shirt?

You can change vote so if those who have voted Red, White, Green change to Red, White, Black - that might change things.

@Saebelsultan, Tilea is home of a majority of the regiments of renown from GW's Dogs of War army. I think some of the regiments had banners from the city they hailed from: Luccini is red and white horizontal stripes with a golden lion head in the middle.

On colours for the team I voted the second choice but I'll paint whatever colours get chosen.

So "Sky Blue"...

Is that Manchester City FC 'light' Sky Blue or Italy 'Azure/Royal' Sky Blue?

I am assuming stars can play in whatever colour they like? Especially as they are arrogant elf ones?

Stars normally done in the same colours as the team, but with a few garish touches :D
