On Tuffskull's suggestion...
I finally decided to try out a Berlin urban camo scheme, and I've got the base colours on. Before I go on with highlights and/or shading, I thought I'd post pics and gather opinions.
The photos came out a little bright. The 'white' and red are GW's new foundation Astronomicon grey and Mechrite red, respectively, and look better IRL. I think I'll shade those two.
The black will be highlighted with dark blue, as per the previous scheme
There's something not quite right, IMO, but I'm not sure what it is - apart from looking like a lego model. After taking another look at RL examples here
, I think I might reduce the size of the blocks, make them more 'blocky' (in terms of shape and arrangement), introduce more red (I included a little to have red somewhere
, but in hindsight it seems conspicuous by it's... brevity; and Jane's Tank Recognition Guide has pics of a forest-camo Polish tank with a similar red which looks good. But I digress), and just plain plan it a little bit better.
I'm looking for hefty critiques here, so please don't hesitate to be harsh.
