Thanks! I've built a quick test model for the colour scheme and came up with the below. I'm happy with the effect, but I'm stuck on the armour plates as I think they need to be dark but then what's the point in having camo?

I think it looks great! A naturalistic camo. Resist bright spot colours which screams "here I am, shoot me!"

Good to be green

Theres some nice stuff in this thread well done, those blood angels and now gaurd are great. Not much to say apart from that. great work.

As to the color of the armor I'd continue the camo pattern just maybe a shade darker or something like that to differentiate the fabric and armor.

Thanks guys I really appreciate the comments!

I've think I've settled on a colour scheme now. I'm trying to avoid any bright colours and also any metallic surfaces as I think most troops would try and avoid reflections giving away their position.

There are some details to finish yet such as the face and gun but otherwise I'm happy. I've started building the first squad and will post the image of them once they've been built.

Camo is always a challenge, because I personally find that I always want the model to look like camo is the intended effect, but it's important to break up the model in a way that the eyes still recognise shapes, on and off the board.

In other words, for 40k you want camo without actually achieving camouflage on the model.

I'm not sure how well these pictures come out. But here is the completed squad. I'll get hold of a decent camera at some point.

I think I need two more squaddies made up as meltas and then these boys will be my vets who roll round in a chimera.
