Which scheme is better?

Two final possibilities i think fo rmy guard army. Gonna be the same sorta stripe + dot camo scheme (angular bold stuff on the vehicles) just two different looks. One on the left is a wasteland pattern of dark brownish-red, ochre cloth with green stripes and white/black dots to break it up. Test model is missing shading obviously. Other one is sorta an urban-ish kinda scheme with spacewolf grey armor, blue stripes, grey cloth, and black/white dots again. I think the one on the left is more interesting personally. Which will look better on 100 guardsmen?

I vote left. For me, it looks more organic which looks good on 100 guardsmen.

I actually like them both a LOT! I'm also leaning towards left, but for a true comparison, you have to base them up. That could make a huge difference. Do it!

I'd go right. The left actually looks like camoflage. Good luck getting high paint marks when your models can't be discerned from your display base. :lol:

Which is exactly why you DO NOT base them in a scheme fitting the camo. Instead, they're jungle guys who got dropped off on an ice world, or some ice guys who got dropped off on a volcano world. Sucks to be them when they're trying to take cover, but hey, they do look schnazzy!

but wouldnt you get a good paint score when half your army cant be seen and theyre running out of the jungle? when you tell that to the judges, you might blow their minds out! :boom:

NO!!!! You don't want your minis to blend into the bases. I mean, you might want to do it for a realistic effect, but you certainly wouldn't want to do it for painting points.

well yeah, the way paints are being judged, you need contrast. you dont get bonus for realism. But thats another thread.... :D

Left. And your bases should make sense with the camo scheme. Don't listen to Nidal!

neither one has enough turquoise, pink, or bad moon yellow to get a good paint score. switch to demons :cry:
