Default Help me with a colour scheme

So a group of buds and I are all pitching in to make a guard regiment. Each one of us will make a distinct battalion with seperate doctrines and colour schemes. So I'm doing a mechanized battalion. I want to include red and black as my main colours with a minority of grey. I was making these all day and nothing seems to look good. So I'm asking you guys to pick which one you think looks best or even if you have the time to make one that you think will be awesome to the max. Thanks in advance.

The thing I don't like is that on every scheme the armor is colored different in different places. It simply doesn't look right. Try making all the armor plates, helmet and boots black and all the cloth red.

I like this one, but I'd paint the two shoulder pads with red

For EoaT:

Sorry Valar couldn't get the picture to get updated so just imagine the other shoulder pad is red.

All my faves as well. If I could pick one and only one I guess Valar's.
