Immerse your miniatures in the royal and mystical allure of the Flexible Triad: Purples. This selection of colours is perfectly suited for painting the regalia of kings, queens, and nobles or depicting features of the fantasy realm, from shining eyes to swirling robes of magical creatures like dragons, fairies, and sorcerers. Capture the sparkle of a gemstone, the contents of a potion bottle, or the menacing swarm of monsters and hive fleets and bring an element of mystique to the gaming table.

The Purples Triad is suitable for projects across all genres of miniature painting, from historical and military figures to fantasy creatures and sci-fi models.

The Flexible Triad: Purples consists of:

  • Warpaints Fanatic: Terrestrial Titan
  • Warpaints Fanatic: Alien Purple
  • Warpaints Fanatic: Cultist Purple
  • Warpaints Fanatic: Hexed Violet
  • Warpaints Fanatic: Violet Coven
  • Warpaints Fanatic: Kraken Lavender

The Flexible Colour Triad System is a segment, or family, of six colours that range from dark to light with a consistent hue. This system allows you to easily select paints that create a natural colour progression on your miniatures. This is an easy way to create a colour scheme for your miniature when army painting because you always have 27 Flexible Triads to choose from instead of mixing colours.

The system builds upon the traditional triad system by introducing more versatility and adaptability in colour selection, expanding the conventional three colours to six. This gives you almost endless possibilities for putting colours together within the triad.

When using a triad system, you usually select 3 colours (a base, a shade, and a highlight), depending on the level of contrast you want on your miniature. For instance, for minimal contrast, opt for 3 adjacent colours to achieve a smooth colour transition. For maximum contrast, use the lightest, middle, and darkest colour available in the flexible triad.
