I'm not a big fan of the Stormcast Eternals Games Workshop put in their Age of Sigmar line. However, looking at some things other people have done, I realized there were basically two things I hated: The immortals-style faces, and the all-gold paint scheme. The heads aren't bad in-and-of themselves, but when every unit sports the same derpy face, it makes them look less interesting. The all-gold paint scheme made it harder to pick out details. So, I thought I'd try fixing that. As you can see, I went with a primarily steel paint for their armor with the gold functioning as more of a trim. Blue goes pretty well with both gold and steel. The steel, gold, and blue were done mostly using the Scale75 paintsets. Faces were done with various Reaper skintone paints. Blondie here got his headswap from the Space Wolves Pack. This guy's head might be recognizable as one of the Anhurian crossbowmen. Bones are great for swaps. Red's head came from Reaper's Sir Rathan Kranzhel, also in Bones. It's amazing how much difference a slightly different color scheme and some headswaps can make.
