Thanks so much for the kind words guys! I really do appreciate it, such a motivator to keep going when its tough to find the time between real life & everything else!!

So I wanted to find a way to use the colours I chose for the undersuits on the vehicles for some coherency &I wanted the armour to be uniformly camo so that wasn't an option... I came up with the pouches based upon pictures of real world fighting vehicles - APC's, helicopters etc. I like the idea of "saddle bags", I imagine the teams might keep things in there that they need quick access to in the field! Could be ammo, tools, or whatever. Or maybe mines as per your suggestion!

Your painting is very clean, and the weathering and camo on the devilfish are top notch.
If I may, what paints and colors are you using for this great color scheme?
wow, super jealous. I love the scheme, which paints did you use for the grey tones? Keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing more.
The models are sprayed Mechanicus grey, covered in Nuln Oil, then Eshin Grey for the main colour. The highlights / the camo is Mechanicus grey again. Brown is steel legion drab, agrax earth shade, tallarn sand, and karak stone.
Wow that scheme has really come up well and I really like the organic cammo on the devilfish, tried similar on a XV8 but was kind of leary at doing it across a Devilfish chassis
Completely agree on a matte route for the finish.
Thankyou so much for the compliment! It really means a lot coming from you, I have long admired your work, and it was infact when I saw your urban models (about 10 years ago!) that I began thinking of this scheme. It has been incubating in my head since then!
I promise I will have some more in the coming weeks - I have just finished assembling a stealth team & a ghostkeel! Wanted to mix it up before I do another infantry group / fish. Hopefully I will have something to show soon(ish)!
- On that note: I am yet to decide whether I should apply the camo scheme to the suits, or utilise a simpler matt grey. What do you guys think would work best?
PS - you can also find the list I am working on here (viewtopic.php?f=48&t=25277&p=318185#p318185
