Glade Guards--models of fantasy army units--wear green robes and carry brown bows and arrows. The guards have dark skin and hide their faces. While a traditional Glade Guard colour scheme exists, you can use any colour scheme you like if you want to create a figurine that is personalised rather than a figurine that matches the standard. To keep your Glade Guard recognisable, paint his robe a dark colour and keep his skin earth toned.
