Default My new color scheme, please rate.

WEll... i already started painting my marines like Ulramarines, but it just isn't working for me, so im thinking white armor with black cloth, kinda like that of the storm troopers from star wars. Any vehicals in the army would be painted grey, and so on. MAybe just to make it even more sta wars like, the seargents chainsword could be painted red.... so what do you think?

I know what you mean..except I sort of stuck with it...my main color is blue, but I redid the eagle and shoulder pads and painted the shoulder pads and knee pads silver> Also added in own transfers.

Sounds good to me...alot of Star Wars there! Where did you get the red chainsword from though???

Man, a clone/stormtrooper army is a cool idea, but I tried this. I just want to warn you.

This army is going to look boring. White's a bugger to highlight and shade. Also, it's going to look very uniform (as there are few if any personal distinctions) with SW troops, so expect an assembly-line kind of look. Plus, SM are a little "heavy" for ordinary troops.

At the risk of flamebait (and please read my post entirely before you respond,) I would suggest the Tau as a SW Imperial army. the troops look a lot more appropriate, and they already keep a very regimented, cookie-cutter look as is.

As I said, I do not in any way want to dissuade you. Moreover, I want to see pics of the guys when you're finished! Just want to shre something I hit when I had this idea as well.

Tau actually would look better as clone troopers. They have long weapons that shoot blue pulse lasers.

I;d say dark blue and a lighter color, though not another blue.
