I think so too. It is one thing to defeat your enemy, and it's another thing to be capable of showing your enemy joining you would be beneficial to them.

The Hammerhead is actually base coated with the same "Dark aircraft grey" spray can from Testors that the "Naval" forces are using as their base color. As originally I was going to use one scheme for my entire army and painted it the same way as the Devilfish. I'm not good with details, being new to painting, so decided I will do the bigger details first and as I feel more comfortable I'd go back and fill the lines.
Now my force will be based on a Combined Arms Force like a real military. Space Naval Forces, Land Ground Forces, and Auxiliary Human Forces. With the role of the air force going to the Navy, similar to the USN's own Naval Air Forces.
With 3 different color schemes compromising of three primary colors for each.
- Naval - Grey, Tan and Light Blue - Support Units (Pathfinders) and Deep striking Units (XV-25's)
- Army - Green, Tan and Black - Infantry (Firewarriors), Armored Infantry (Crisis and Broadsides) and Mechanized Armor (Hammerheads)
- Auxiliary - Black, Tan and Light Blue - Infantry (Gue'vesa) and Mechanized Armor (Leman Russ)
The dark navy blue is the color I settled on as my Sept's color choice.
