Runefang Steel Colour Schemes & Combinations
Runefang Steel paint from Citadel Colour can be paired with a variety of other colors to create interesting and dynamic effects on miniatures. Here is a list of three colors that complement Runefang Steel well:
- Abaddon Black: a deep black color that provides a strong contrast to the bright metallic silver of Runefang Steel.
- Xereus Purple: a rich, dark purple color that is a split-complementary color to the blue undertones in Runefang Steel.
- Screaming Bell: a metallic copper paint that is an analogous color to the metallic silver of Runefang Steel.
I chose these hues because, according to color theory, they are complementary to Runefang Steel and can help balance the design and add interest. Purple can bring elegance and power, Black can add depth and contrast, Copper can give the vehicles a worn-in, aged appearance. Split-complementary color schemes can be made with these hues to give the finished product depth and interest.
