Ok So I don't actually play Marines, but with the new starter set that's coming out, I'm thinking about realizing an idea I had for camo marines. I'd give them they trait "see but don't be seen" cause i think it's fluffy, chapter fluff would be sort of like night lords/ commando-navy seals.
Anyways just wondering If anyone had painted their marines in camo, and what people thought of the idea.
The Doctor (name on these forums) has some camo-painted Marines, they look pretty spiffy. However, I'd suggest you rethink your idea for See But Don't Be Seen; the Marine codex is going to be redone soon after 5th edition is released, and Traits are being done away with.
I'm mildly bummed to see the traits go away. I guess it offers an opportunity to sell many new codexes.
I LOVE the smell of promethium in the morning!
They were one of the awesome armies at Arcanacon in Melbourne last January - can't wait 'till the next tournament, hopefully my 'Fists will be ready by then (if not, its the old Skitarii again )

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
Well the loss of traits is not that big of a deal for me, because I haven't started yet. Hopefully they replace them with something that allows as much army customization. After seeing those pics I really want to do this, the guy did an awesome job. Although I think I will do a lighter coloured camo to make the models look less busy.
Thanks for the replys.
Many people say that camo for marines is unfluffy, but i think that many chapters would use it, it is, after all, a pretty good idea in many wartime situations to not be seen.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

I pretty good idea. Maybe you could have different Camo Designs for different squads, such as Tactical Squads, Assault squads, Devestator Squads, e. t. c.

camo marines would be very fluffy, and be going back towards the old rogue trader days, where most chapters used to paint their armour dependant on the campaign they were fighting, although thay still had a codex colour they wore otherwise.
In the old fluff i believe it was the red scorpions who ALWAYS painted thei armour for every campaign, and frowned upon the chapters who only did it occasionally. If you can get hold of a copy of rogue trader, it could provide lots of inspiration.
Back in the zone!
Those indeed where the days. So much good stuff in Rogue Trader!
And yea, most chapters did indeed paint their armour accordingly. After all they are meant to be 'THE' refinement of military prowess and cunning.
If I ever get round to it I'm going to pint some of mine in an urban camo pattern. Might do it with the new Vets and some new scouts. Will look good along side the black/grey that my chapter has adopted.
