    Tiger warriors

    When I first looked at my assembled fire warriors, I saw their main color - vomit brown.
    I tohught that it would be interesting to paint them to look like tigers - with black stripes over their armour, helmets etc.
    How do you think that should look?Is it a good idea?
    Please let me know what do you think.I'll be waiting...

    P.S. Would it look good if I did the same for Stealth suits (scab red, inked with chestnut ink several times, and then should I add some skull white stripes to make it look nice?Because I hate regular painting...)?

    would be very imprressive if you can get it of. Tigers are more orange brownish with a creamlike whitish belly and brownish to dark brownish stripes i think, and a difficulty would be the tanks, as they are big.

    maybe try blending, on a black primer. with skull white with a tiny bit of bonewhite to get a broken white , use a base of cobra leather with some orange as a base maybe vor the 'back of the tigers' and a more cobra leather/ orange combo for a next layer, avoiding the first layers edges. for the stripes, maybe straigt cobra leather and a next layer cobra leather, again avoiding the previous layers edges with a tiny bit of a darker brown, maybe beastial of charred brown. i don't know how it would look like, but some very diluted copper and charred brown used fo the last layer might give a randomness to the stripes, but experiment on a piece of leftover before starting

    Imo, stealthsuits, i would so in a darker sheme, similar, but with darker colors, but thats my idea.

    Sounds like a cool idea.
    I think you would find a more stylised 'Tiger stripe' pattern less complicated than trying to copy all the variety of tones in a real tiger.
    There are a lot of diverse types. Entering 'Tiger stipe camo' into a Google picture search will bring up loads.

    I think you should take a look at The Jungle, home of the Fighting Tigers of Veda. Here is a guide on how to recreate his impressive tiger stripes.

    It provides for different schemes... I think the brown-over-tan version would look interesting on a stealth team.
