Default Urban Camo

Ok guys, I'm in need of some help.

I think Ive painted this firewarrior so many times he is now just a seething mass of paint.
I'm trying to come up with an heavy urban theme for my firewarriors and nothing I try works well together. I've never had a problem with schemes But now I need help.
Comon people, this is the comprehensive search for the holy grail of urban camo schemes....well slight exaggeration but you get my drift. I need help in the form of guides, pictures and just plain old advice.

Can anyone help me??

Well a heavy urban theme may be a dark gray and maybe a blue/black

If you have pictures of the Kasrkin anywhere, I would suggest using their style of camo on the armor.

Dark green on the cloth, I'm thinking Catachan + Black hilighted with Catachan Green on its own. For the armor a charcoal color (Codex + Black), with the jagged edged patterns being solid black outlined in pure Codex. Red/Orange or Scorpion Green for the gems and stuff. Red would look a bit more sinister, but the green maybe a bit more high tech like nightvision equipment.

Well camo on fire warriors doesn't seem right to me but as far as an urban paint scheme this is what I'd do:

-prime the model black

-paint the armor codex grey and the cloth black

-highlight the armor fortress grey and the cloth codex grey

-highlight the armor and mix of FG and skull white

you could get more into shading and whatnot but for a simple urban paint scheme this is what I suggest.

If you read the tau rulebooks it states that they change their colors to be appropriate for wherever they're fighting. So I think you would be hard pressed to find a firewarrior in battle that is not at least trying to look camouflaged.

I meant like US army camo or something like that with what ever color variations wouldn't look right to me.

This might be what you're looking for... but instead, do the whole thing like the shoulder pad, he says it's not very good but the rest of the Marine looks like it has a black and white stripe going down it... last time I checked camo wasn't supposed to be like that, blotches are good, not stripes...
