Okay, now i know that this is quite an odd thing that i'm doing here, But please, bare with me on this! I've recently picked up some of the Death Korps range, but i havnt been able to setting on a paint scheme for them, So instead of takeing my brush to them as i test afew out, I instead turned to afew of my Cadians i had laying around. This is what i've come up with so far.
Now the few things i have acouple issuses on still would be on the brown, for the boots, and the belts, i think its too dark, (currently im useing Folk Arts color, Fawn) and am wondering what i should do about it, leave it, or use a lighter shade of brown. Then im also unsure as to what i should use in respect to the eagles, ontop of the silver of the armor. Any ideas?
Oh.. but i dont look so good with all those.. tentaclly things..
Shining Gold from the citadel range would wok well on the eagle
also to make a lighter brown you could mix the brown and a white

For the boots and belt I'd give a wash of black or Devlan mud, particularly in the creases, then highlight the raised edges with a lighter shade of brown. Perhaps a color like GW's Bestial brown or Snakebite leather? If you wash the armor with black wash then highlight it with a mix of Skull white:Mithril silver it'll really make the armor stand out. Grey knights come to mind as an example when I think of this.
For the eagles I would stay away from another metallic. Perhaps base it in codex grey then highlight with skull white or bleached bone. At least, that's what I did with my IG.

I would change to boots to black completely... They look a little off next to the brown of the uniform.
Personally for color layout I would probably recommend the majority of the uniform to be a lighter color with a darker color to pick out smaller details (such as the shoulder pad, helmet, etc.)
