    Need some opinions on my colour scheme.

    Hey all,

    I've created my own colour scheme but I've had a good think about it and think it needs to be slightly modified. I currently like Alternate scheme 2, but then again I loved my current scheme when I first came up with it (and replaced my old scheme with it).

    My current scheme:
    Marine
    Sergeant / Veteran

    Chainmail chest eagle and trim highlighted with mithril silver. Shoulder fill is Ultramarines blue. Shining gold on the sergeant.

    Alternate scheme 1:
    Marine
    Sergeant / Veteran

    Shoulder fill is red gore. Chest eagle and trim is chainmail. Shining gold on sergeant.

    Alternate scheme 2:
    Marine
    Sergeant / Veteran
    Shoulder fill is red gore. Trim is chainmail, chest eagle is shining gold.

    Thanks to the B&C SM painter for helping me create this.



    Edit: Revised images for detail.

    I like the second scheme, however i cant help but wounder if it need more colour to it, maybe paint one of the kneecaps red, or something along those lines.

    I prefer the blue scheme, although I do agree with V3xx that you need some more colour on the models. it is by far majority black which might leave the models feeling unpainted.

    Hmm the lack of colour on the model is partly from my laziness perhaps. I didn't fill in the back pack joints or the soft armour joints. Also, as my chapter is an Imperial Fists successor, my marines have their share of purity seals etc, adding more to the model.

    On the black, I just love black power armour. I wouldn't consider doing anything else. I don't really like BT rules or organisation etc so that rules that out. Fluffy Raven Guard is not my playstyle either. Thanks for your input so far guys.

    Edit: removed detailed image links and added to top.

    That looks much better. Grey/silver soft armour will look good against the black.

    Agreed. It does look very effective.

    @Draake

    What's your chapter called? A new Imperial Fists successor sounds interesting.

    your veteran in the second scheme looks exactly like the troops from the third..

    I like the second scheme, but am thinking that a white helmet might look good for the veteran.. Or even a Red Helmet...

    Black with red and gold that I don`t like that much together or I like very much together...
    It can look the best or the worst (Dark Eldar Kabal of the Black heart).
    The gold trim does not look good with the red inset for me. Both bright colour mixed together againts black, both will look more outstanding if they will be separated from each other.
    I beleive black trim and gold kneeguard isntead of red would make a good looking marine for You.

    Blue and silver are closer to each other therefore they look better for me.

    Have you thought about red soft armour?

    Of the three, I like your current one the best for loyalists--the red/black combo just seems too Chaotic to me.

    However, I also like the across-the-board gold trim and gold helmets of Alternate 2, so basically for me the best would be Alternate 2 with blue fill.

    Nice work on your reds, by the way! I'm rubbish with the B&C painter when I try for subtle colors--all of my Marines come out Slaaneshi...

    Hi. There is no poll option for "none."

    In my opinion, all of them are a bit "generic."

    How about dark blue armor with gold shoulders and black trim?
    I'm a reasonable guy. But, I've just experienced some very unreasonable things.
