    i have a friend that was moving and decided to give me his extra space marines. when i got them i didn't expect them to bbe as old as they were. First off. i got an ultramarines tactical squad. they were all metal, i was like "woah, they don't do that any more" i also got a TON of sprues that weren't the normal grey color but a sort of tannnish-peachy color. the shoulder pads werwe nonexistent, already being on the arm pieces. i have about 30+ marines in all and am considering on maybe having a small space marines army. but i couldn't think of what to paint them. i definitly am going to use these, and was thinking a realy wacky scheme like purple and yellow or even pink and brown. but i'd rather talk to as many people as i can so when i do start to paint, it's truly what i want.

    The rainbow warriors didn't really have a very exiting color scheme,regal blue armou and yellow helmets with a racing strip down the middle.I'd say make up some really harsh scheme..like green and purple,and call them the Emporer's Stepkids

    For some reason I suddenly thought of Gay Pride Marines with that little flag on their shoulder pads... hehe.

    Ranbow Wariors are an actual chapter.

    I'd go for Purple(bright) and green(also bright) color scheame.

    Let him get to choose colour himself...
    Just beacause they are called the rainbow warriors they don't necessarily be like "gay pride army"...

    But I do like that green and purple idea, it sounds like it could be great.

    If they are still on sprue I would hold on to those relics. Your looking at the first sprue produced by GW. Or even sell them on E-bay, I would bid. I bet you could make some cood cash off the models, then buy more new marines.
    Personally I wouldnt come up with a whild crazy color scheam for them just because they are so hard to get these days.

    hmm. green and purple does sound cool. but would green or purple be the dominant color? any way it would be great. i think i&#39;m going to take itisused&#39;s idea and hold on to them for a while. unless i get this overwhelming gut feeling that i must paint them
