It's not urban camo, but i love the camo pattern SIgur was using on the Tau he did recently:

Maybe you could adapt the colours for an urban setting?

Nothing I can think of. The only time I've tried to do an Urban camo scheme was on one Stormtrooper for a Inquisitorial retinue. It was just black fatigues with little white and grey lines.

I'm a big fan of the scheme on the old GW Studio Cadian 122nd though.

These are lookin amazing, i can't see anything in the modelling that i would change at all.

As for a colour scheme i would say to pick 2 colours for a camo scheme and then allow yourself 2 other spot colours. Don't include the skin tones in these. If you add 3 colours to the camo it will make the pattern a bit of a pain to paint and will limit how many other details you can highlight on the model without it looking too busy.

I think a dark blue and black would look pretty cool, like black body armour and blue fatigues. It'd have an almost SWAT feel to it.

This is EXACTLY the WFB model I was going to use to make an Inquisitor up until I found the old metal one with a book in his hand and back-slung sword. I really look forward to what he becomes.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

As much as I appreciate your confidence in my painting abilities, I think Grimzag has the solution that's within my abilities as a painter.

Another small update from work yesterday.

Did a test model for my Scions, and I'm happy with the scheme. Also finished a priest for the Malleus retinue. (since the photo I've done his base and plasma cell) (also not sure why the edge of his relic appears blue. It isn't.


Also finished my last servo skull, this one for the Hereticus retinue. I'm really happy with the way the gas came out.
And a Jokaero... because... well... why not?


The Warrior priest is coming along, nearly finished the build and should have something to upload tomorrow.

Tonight's task is mostly dedicated to digital art for the 40k campaign I've got coming, but hopefully should get a good start on the other 9 scions.

I figured I'd put these here too, these are 4 maps I've made for the ground battles of our campaign. They're all based of satellite images of random cities I thought looked cool.

Any thoughts would be welcome.

MOAR MODELS!

So here last week's effort from work. Finished my Scions.


And finally got round to painting my Krieg commissar. Waiting on a cheap Chinese knockoff set of death riders to arrive now!


Also bought a second knight at GW last week and I'm trying something different. I've built a base for him with a ruined Chimera on it, and I've cut him at the left knee to bend it. I'm trying to keep most parts separate so I can spray the armour, feet and parts of the guns red before I assemble him fully.
