    Skullblade : Light Green.
    Bloodhand : Red.
    Darkmind : Navy
    Deathbreeze : Dark Green.

    UNDEAD

    Goldaxe is yellow.
    Skullblade is light green.
    Bloodhand is red.
    Darkmind is dark blue.
    Deathbreeze is dark green.
    Ravaging fire is orange.
    And the Moghtar orc clan we saw before( i forgot its name) is brown.
    I think the colors are fine as they are.

    Alright, with Blizzard releasing 1.29, we have a final color pattern:

    I will personally take the time to go through the existing factions and check them for possible recolors.
    Suggestions are welcome, please use this thread to discuss the matter. :)

    I daresay that red for them demons is nice. Blue for royals also fits in well enough. Golden guard calls for yellow. Orcs... mmm... I´d give Sasrogarn pink :D
    Maybe purple for Zayrmak´s tribe, so we can see those casters from mile away.

    Giving the Deathbreeze emerald as a replacement would be a good idea in my opinion.

    There aren't any snowy-themed factions in LoA.

    Giving Wheat to demon slaves won't be that bad in my opinion.

    Added.

    Anyway, we can use changes like the proposed Emerald for Deathbreeze. I'd say Coal for Ravaging Fire but that might just be me

    Good. I made a slight mistake though. Darkmind clan is just blue, not dark blue.

    For Zairmak alone, it would fit, but the entire clan, I don't think so. Coal can be a fitting color for the entire Tribal Dominion though, as their teamcolour in chapter 12, SHB, made them look like a big neutral creep camp and not a menacing force, at least in my opinion.

    You can also add the undead nexuses and Demonic legions.

    Undead:
    Splecir Nexus - Purple
    Rohir Nexus - Teal
    Zirr Nexus - Blue
    Kezzar Nexus - Wheat
    There was also 1 other nexus, though I forgot both its name and colour.

    Demons:
    BloodDrinker Legion - Red
    SoulEater Legion - Green
    Darkblade Legion - Orange
    DreamHunter Legion - Maroon
    HopeFlayer Legion - Gray
    Demon Slaves - Wheat
    MindSlayer Legion - Coal ( hasn't appeared yet, but I remember Shar mentioning he will give them this colour once they do.)
    If I made a mistake, feel free to correct it.
