Revamped paint scheme on Temple Guard

Last night I got to thinking about my color scheme. As I essessed my work, I decided that it wasn’t going to be my scheme going forward for a few reasons. One: while I got the color scheme from a red and blue poison dart frog, I just don’t think tropical when I see it. Two: the more I stare at it, the more it begins to look like some cheesy red, white and blue patriotic design with that Bleached Bone. Three: I’m just far more partial to bright/cool colors. Therefore, I have painted up another Temple Guard in order to showcase my new scheme. This is a scheme that I thought about before, but kind of forgot about.

I've got a slightly in depth article on exactly how I painted them over at my blog if you care to see.

i like the scheme, but I do agree with Elfy, it seems too simple, and a wash would bring out the details a lot more, making them look pretty sweet

You might try putting some GW washes over them. Since you like your colors bright, and washes darken the color, you might thin the washes down 1:1 with water so that their effects are more subtle =)
