Cheers everyone!

Here I've got some TB line Eastern European Infantry. I've already got Blue/white, Red/white schemed armies. And decided to try out if Green and Black would work for the green player pieces. But I'm really conflicted, and feel like without a second opinion I might be in the wrong.

So the question is, do you guys think the green and black combination might work for the whole army? I just feel like the miniatures are quite dark.

For what it's worth I've always quite liked the black and green combination as a colour scheme. If you're concerned about it being too dark you could try going a shade or two lighter on the green to really make it stand out?

I remember you had a picture of a black and yellow scheme which was quite stand out. It would balance quite nicely having the blue/white, red/white, green/black, yellow/black.

I tend to use a dark grey rather than black with mid grey highlights... that might help lighten the figures as well

I really like the black and green combination as well.  I know it doesn't jump out as much as yellow/purple or blue/white does but they still look really nice.  As the others have said, maybe a slightly lighter green highlight or a grey over the black might lift them slightly but I like them as they are.

I agree with mmcv, lighting the green shade might help.   Green clothing against green basing doesn’t give enough contrast imho. Your painting on figures is so good it is a shame to bury it in the background.

Hey!

Here's a few close-ups from the Crowmoor troops, I went through the black with a really dark grey like you guys suggested. The original photos might've been slightly dark to begin with. What do you think?

Also, I started to experiment with the flesh tone. Earlier I had basecoated the skin areas with a dark skin tone, but felt it came out pretty flat even with a wash and a highlight. So now I've started to basecoat the skin in brown like many others, and feel like this is the best way to go with these.
