Phoenician Purple is a rich, regal colour from the Colour Citadel range. It has a deep, almost velvety hue that is evocative of royalty and luxury.
The colour is highly pigmented and has a smooth, creamy consistency, making it easy to apply and blend.
When used to paint miniatures, Phoenician Purple can add a touch of elegance and drama to any model. It is a true standout colour that is sure to impress with its depth and intensity.
The paint’s name is inspired by the nickname given to Fulgrim, the primarch of the Emperor’s Children Traitor Legion also known in the time before the Horus Heresy as “The Phoenician”.
