I feel like this blend of colors, although reminiscent of the Joker from Batman, provides enough variation that I can vary the colors between models of certain affiliations while still allowing them to blend-in with the rest of the army. For example, the Cryx that I end up painting will shift so that green becomes the primary color, while models that are more affiliated with the Highborn Covenant will shift so that purple becomes primary - all the while everything will have a cohesive look and it leaves me room to explore along the Mercenary faction lines in the future.

I have some amazing old Reaper inks
that made these bases look like richly
