Colour testing

I'm trying to find out a cool colour scheme for my Ground Zero Games UNSC. I envisioned something with red and black - but I don't think this test came out good. Also the red is maybe a little bit too much space opera..
And I'm painting my legionairies red..

I'm also working on some alien mercenaries, also Ground Zero Games. Their pants are finished..

  1. I think it looks alright. It can be hard to work out a color scheme. I think it's the placement of your color rather than your choices. Try painting the gun a lighter color, like a light grey; I think it will bring out the middle of the figure.

  2. I really like how they've turned out. I agree with Chris though. The gun work better in a lighter shade of grey or perhaps even a creamy-green like Vellajo Green Grey (but not Grey Green, which is a different Vellajo colour entirely).

  3. Thanks guys, I have painted the gun Gunship Green - that is an improvement already. But I am not too happy about the fatigues - I have tried a second guy first with lighter grey fatigues, which sucked, and then with Russian Uniform, which also sucked.

    I am not going to try a dude with red fatigues, maybe with white stripes, and camouflaged armour.

    The Aliens are nearing completion.
