Default Schemes for Shas'o R'myr ??

First post on the forum been into 40K for a good 14 years now, used to play but haven't since the new rule changes, however I'm still an avid painting fan of all 40K stuff. Used to have space wolves now started a tau army!

Anyway, Bought the Shas'o R'myr model from forge world and was just wondering what kind of paint schemes anyone has used? Want it to look like a special model as it should! But would be interested to see some ideas of good paint schemes for him?

Any links / ideas?

Welcome to the forums, Sprite.

I don't have Shas'O R'myr myself, but I always thought that he would look good with a blue and orange theme, like his shield form the pics on Forgeworld. He is the leader of a desert campaign, though, so that type of color scheme would be more appropriate.

Forgeworld had a decent scheme for Shas'O R'myr: http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/rmyr.htm

It's a nice scheme IMO, fits in with the desert environment whilst still setting him apart from the rest of the battlesuits with not only his armament but also the red markings all over.

And of course, Welcome to the Forum

Have a quick look in the Painting and Showcase boards, you might find some other people's R'myrs there.. I think I've seen one here before, with a dark grey scheme (or maybe it wasn't even painted :S)

I recently bought one also (good choice man) i painted mines to contrast with my army, my fw's are white armour plating with black cloth, so i made him dominatly black armour with the smaller pieces in white, with blue highlights on weapons etc and it works well (just my thought tho.)

The Imperial Armour 3 book is huge!!! I recently got Shas'o R'myr, an XV-89, 2 Heavy Gun Drones, and the book. Let me tell you, it's worth the 55lbs it cost...! It has a lot of fluf in it, and has new rules for old models (Like droping the cost of the XV-8 Shas'uis and Shas'vres by 5pts ).

Imperial Armour 3 had some serious problems during publications. Apparently, they sent one of the old drafts to the printers instead of the corrected version. Somehow they managed to print the whole run without realizing it. If they have corrected all of the mistakes, it is definitely worth getting.

I painted R'myr with a combination of dark purple and dark green. It is not quite so hideous as that would normally sound, nor does he resemble the Incredible Hulk as much as he did during the base coating.

I was thinking that i didn't want to paint it so that it would end up looking like the rest of my army... wanted it to stand out abit.. debaiting between light colours and dark colours.. i think maybe a purple and black... I do like the effect of brown wash over black as it gives an almost two tone effect when light shines on it form different angles (something that I have used for clothing on fire warriors and path finders.. looks good)

Any ideas when they may bring an updated or new release of Imperial armour 3?

(I also bought an XV88-2 broadside which has the best pose for its version of the suit!)
