Haha, you had the same thought I did, I don't think they are going to be paticularly sneaky, however they will look absolutely spectacular while they get shot to ribbons (which is all that really matters honestly). Congrats on another well painted unit, always a pleasure to happen across one of your threads.

I don't think I have ever considered a cracked lava cloak pattern before. I think it's intriguing and looks good.

The scounts themselves are painted very well, and the cloaks, while they also look good, don't seem to acheive the desired effect. The look a little flat. But as easy as it is for me to say that, I am not really sure how you would go about giving them more depth. I looked at some images of real lava, and what seems to give it real dimension is that even among the flows there are still solid parts of the rock. maybe thin dark lines through the oranges and yellows, or smaller spaces between each 'flow.'
Just some thoughts.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. - Douglas Adams
From what I saw, I think the cloaks fit the theme remarkably. However I do feel the lava can be broken down into smaller chunks instead of three or four bright squares.
Besides that, I think it has a really good blend on the oranges, reds, yellows, and whites. I personally think
if you can do it right, it turns out awesome. So you did a good job on that.
BLENDING IS SUPURB. I LIKE IT.

I actually just finished using this sort of pattern on a drop pod and land speeder. I'll be posting those up sometime soon.
Very nice scouts, love the idea of the lava something a little different than fire.
I think some highlighting would help the black "rock" stand out a bit more from the lava and might just give it that edge.
