Hi guys i am going to try a camo concept on a space marine squad. I have a base of information to start with from a White Dwarf mag I have. It is Scout used camo that will be used by my marines. In any war concept you have to try and blend into your environment to give yourself cover and stealth. With this being an obvious fact then i would assume that even in the year 40K where you would use cloaking of some aspect. This could mean inbuild scheme's switched from the suit AI(Artificial Intelligence). Maybe even the Predator cloaking concept who knows.
I have my 8 camo combos which i wil pick 2 from and do 2 x squad of 3 to see how it turns out.
I do like the Cobalt/Ammonium desert pattern and the Iron Oxide desert pattern. hmm sub - tropical forest pattern is nice also. Well will choose 2 and post my painted squads on here.
See attached scan: ENJOY
Remember guys we build the forums and sharing information and stuff is what it is all about.
PS: If you want the full scanned image i can email it to you just let me know?

i suggest u go with something that seems to stand out in the 40k world and that would be ruins and wastelands so for wastelands try something like that first desert pattern on the picture u posted for ruins and stuff i would suggest the third one down on the left side
Do you have a setting in ming that you want to use your marines in? If your aiming for an urban themed army, then I think the third one down on the right is good, where as if you are going for a desert scheme, then a different one would look better. For me, I like the jungle scheme, second down on the left.
i meant third one down on the right side aswell for urban, not thinking clearly today
To tell you the truth I would go with the ice camo pattern... apart from that the really important thing is what your army oriented to... If the army is in a toxic waste world you can't use foliage camo... or in a ice world you can't use desert camo pattern...
So the proper is to see where the army is functioning and paint accordingly...
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
Yea thanks for the input guys i think i dont really have a terrain in mind and would be thinking that maybe Urban Camo like you guys suggest, as most 40k has a urban type feel or moon effect that way the urban colour scheme would Chameleon in well with the environment. Will paint a set of 4 SM for now in that scheme and when they are finished attach the pictures on this topic.
I chose the sub artic tundra pattern. I think it looks like the best and it's interesting. I think some of the others look too bright or too messy. Also a sub artic tundra enviroment is new and interesting. I think you should give it a try.
thanks i think i might, says it was used by the Dark Angels. I really want to try and do it justice. make it something special. I do like the pattern
It would be cool to see some consepts of the scheemes

I am getting to work on that now just finishing basing my Chaos black legion and i will be trying out Codex Variation M38 urban Combat which has taken the poll vote by storm. i have a feeling that they will look truly amazing and if say fixed with Plasma guns could really shine.
