I have decided to start a second Warhammer 40K army, space marines being my first one, and have decided to collect Imperial Guard, and since I am in the middle of making a new city fight board, I have decided to paint them an Urban colorscheme, the problem is, I can't decide which colorsheme to go with. Thanks to GamesWorkshop's interactive painter, and microsoft paint, I have come up with several colorschemes, please tell me which ones you like most and what you would change if you would change them.
Thanks in advance
Edit: Its not very clear in the last one, but he has small triangles of codex grey and shadow grey on his armour.

i think the thord one would be best for urban camo- grey with urban camo and black body armour

the second one checks cool
the thing when painting camo of all kinds is to get the camo-pattern perfect, nothing else matters as it easily destroys the look of the model. I would suggest the third scheme (my friend have painted a group of cadians that way) becuase it looks good, even if you would fail a little in the camo-pattern.
The second one is quite good to, just make lesser camo-lines
This is how I paint my IG Urbanites. Base coat all the coth in Codex grey. Then drybrush the Codex Gray with Fortress gray. Make sure you just get the raised surfaces and let the folds still have the darker color of Codex Gray. Next I make camo splotches with Shadow Gray. This may not look that good at first but It will work. I make sure that the camos splotches don't go over where the cloth folds over itself so that it looks more realistic. Then I go and make very small dots of Chaos Black VERY sparingly on the cloth. Lastly I paint two white dots next to all the black ones using Skull White. I paint all the armr with Chaos Black and Hilight with codex gray and Fortress Gray.

The third scheme looks like the scheme I use except I don't have any black camo lines.
I made an article on how I paint my Urban IG (and this is the 2nd time I link to it...Joy! )
You can find that here
Also, (Cadians Urban "Color Schemes")here is the cadian model addendum
As always, I hope it helps.
And remember...pick something you like...seriously...Many times the only thing that kept me going painting those legions of men was the fact that they just look so damn good in groups.
Find it, stick with it, love it.

When you paint colour scheme for your troops, your whole army must follow the particular colour scheme maybe the HQ will be different from the rest of the army. Protocons ideas sounds intersting by the way.
MEAT IS MURDER
Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?
I like the third one, as it is most realistic and practical. I doubt urban camo includes turquoise.
