Default Urban Camo Marines test

I'm fairly pleased with how they've turned out so far. Sparta marine needs more greenstuff on his knee, because it's concave right now. And no one has concave knees. However, I know there's a lot wrong with them.

Warning: Opinion following.

I personally feel that your camo does a bit too good of a job breaking up the shape of the marines power armor, they look flat and will probably all blend together on the table.

one small suggestion would be to paint the rims of the shoulder pads and the belts a solid color, (black preferably, or possibly a dark blue color like storm blue)

Edit: I take it back, I think only a mildly darker color would be best. like Codex Grey+Chaos Black

right, a few things, and yeah, opinion follows.

I personally think that camo really doesn't suit marines. 8ft tall? 4ft wide? you need some camo! A doctrine of invulnerability doesnt really seem to suit camo.

but if youre set on it, i have some comments.

your base grey doesnt seem to cover sufficiently, you want to work all your colors so you can't see the one beneath, and i can see alot of black under the grey. The camo doesn't look that camo-y to me, and a bit thickly laid on. Also, why are the marines in urban and bolters in rural camo?

as for the sparta marine, fun idea, but watch those mould lines.

To be honest, the bolters are painted up in rural camo to simply play up the fact that yes, I do realize that super humans in camo is a completely silly idea.

These were meant as a test, just for me to see if it's a viable look for marines. If I cared, I could probably pull it off, but these guys'll probably be put off to the side while I finish my Guard and Eldar.

Camo is nice on marines if used the correct way. Normal marines in power armor would not use it. Scouts would. Here's what I mean:
