Chaos Black undercoat, with Codex Grey and white shrapnel-pattern camo.

My urban camo is base coat of Codex Grey with bleach bone, skull white and chaos black blotches. A thin chaos black wash is then applied over the top, over the whole thing. Although it is mainly reserved for armorued fists, Hardened Vets and storm troopers (basically my forward troops).

black armour, shadow grey helmet and fatigues, white and black camo patterns on the shadow grey. you can replace the white camo with codex grey to add a dragged out, hard worn look.

Well, a good non-camo scheme is just Codex-grey over black.

Another less-used is Ice-Blue stripes on Black.

The Cadian scheme in Codex: Cityfight is Shadow grey with Chaos Black and Skull White stripes, with black armor, but a camoed helmet.


Best o' Luck!
