Well, it started like this: I opened the shrink wrap and was missing the Blue Block for Cleo.

So I dug through my Columbia Games extra bits and put her on a whitle block. It was lovely.

Then I thought, "Hey, ya know what? These tan Pompey stickers would look good on those barf coloured blocks!" And I was right! They looked very cool, awesome, I was pleased!

I was so happy that I almost danced a jig.

And then it happened. I placed the first Red Caesar sticker on a green block and realized I would have to make an army of gaudy Christmas ornaments. And when done sticking the units together I realized that looking at the green and red units triggered some kind of subliminal "warning" instinct, much like a black and yellow hornet might.

So, now I will need to paint the sides and sticker border area with black or maroon/dark red paint just so I can look at the units and remain at peace with the universe.

Lesson learned. Let the pros pick the colours... (Though Cleopatra is quite dashing in white!)

This is because of the effect that complementary colors generate.
