Default Advice on what scheme to paint my gorgon in

Hey everyone. I have primed my gorgon a painted the three main schemes im contemplating on the bottom. In terms of fluff (which pretty much dictates everything i do) the Gorgon is part of an Urdeshi assault company that was attached to the Altairan first during the liberation and defence of Urdesh.

The Sabbat Worlds book says that the Urdeshi have a Black, White and grey "Puzzle Camo scheme". I would like to stay true to the fluff, but im not shure if it will look good.

here are the three schemes i am contemplating.

please do tell me which ones you like more. And if you have any better ideas for the scheme then i would be happy to hear them.

I like the middle one the best but i think the third one looks cool too.

The first one would make your army look like puzzle pieces lol. just a little bit to puzzley but the other two especially the middle are cool

Definitely the middle, it makes near perfect disruptive camouflage. As for the other two... I believe you took the "puzzle camo" a little too literally :P

as much as I hate to agree with the majority.. the middle one would be better.. mainly because the others look too puzzley.
