Default multi-environment scheme?

just thought of a scheme, grey armour, brown cloth, green optics and.....green or blue or red sept colour...not sure. anyway, it could be multi environmental camoflague....cityfight, possible camoflague for in the air and under water[ grey???? is it hard to see grey underwater? light grey? same with sky] as well as desert[brown] and earth[the ground is a brown] so it could be a multi environment camoflague. oh nearly forgot, snow!!! it could be snow aswell, only thing is ive missed out on place, grassy places, dont know how to add to my scheme so it could be camoflagued there. only just thought of the idea so i should be attempting it today.....only got 5 testers...3 used....1 covered in something....its shiny[i didnt do it] and another i did along time ago already painted.....so i have..... 0 testers..ill make some.

anyway, anyone think its a good idea?
and how can i add grassy camoflague to it?
and what about sept colour?

Honestly, I don't think it's a very good idea. Your models might look like random blobs of different colors, and also, camoflauge has to be specified - if you have white for snow and then brown for earth, if you're in snow, you'll be spotted from the brown, and if you're in earth, you'll be spotted for the white.
It's sort of getting the worst camoflauge by trying to fit them all in.

Good luck if you want to do it, though.

again, thats not what i meant. i meant it will have grey armour, JUST grey, so it would be camoflagued in citys, snow, in the air and maybe under water. brown cloth JUST brown, so it would be camoflagued in earth, desert[it would be light brown] do you get what i meant now?

great, now youve got me thinking its a bad idea, and after seeing kaltens scheme it makes me what to change yet again. i can never decide on a scheme.ill think of something try it, then ill think of something else try it and find something else..try it....just thought of this, and ive changed it already. i guess ill just do several testers and see which looks best. i could still do with help.

Ohhh. I'm sorry, I misunderstood.
I'm still not sure about this, but I'll have to see how you pull it off. It does have potential...
Good luck anyway!

You're camo pattern has potential your color cover a range of environments If it what you like go for it and see what comes of it if doesn't turn out for you strip them and back to the drawing board.

For me I've tried 2 schemes for some SM I've been trying to paint since X-mas and stripped them both and I'm strongly debating on Imperial Fists (Thanks to Mr Tom Norman)
