Hamwarmer 40°C

Post#1 » Mar 07 2017 02:56

In the grim dankness of the far future, there is only Ham. The brave warriors of Two Pi fight tirelessly for What's Best, and to warm the Ham.

Well...I guess it's a rather effective camo for....burning planets? :D
Okay okay I guess there are planets with lots of red flora as well. I'd just make sure your bases give that suggestion as well somehow (no need to make it all red/orange if you want to remain some contrast to your models).

Ah, well, if you read the opening post you will see that these are not Tau, they are Two Pi fighting for What's Best.

If you're open to alternate styles of base, one option could be an iron oxide desert, which would be predominantly red earth and rock (for reference, the surface of Mars in real life is essentially an iron oxide desert). It would fit with your colour scheme and would be simple enough to do, using either the martian earth texture paints from GW or just painting up some sand in reds and oranges instead of browns.

Otherwise, go Two Pi. :)

Loud and proud - what better way to say you don't give k'yet about your foe than no cammo. A wall of these guys coming at you would be upsetting - you know they're coming for you. :D

Nice work on a bright scheme, hard to edge highlight.
