So I've managed to pick up a mechanicum army. Love the bots, just don't know what scheme to paint them. I like the original colours but, as always, want to do something different.

Any suggestions?

Armies thus far:

Ulthwe' Eldar
Iron Warriors CSM
Thousand Sons CSM - Modeling Diary Found Here
Howling Griffons - Modeling Diary Found Here
Leopard Print Nids - Modeling Diary Found Here

BFG - Eldar

Do some google image searches for 'Castellax', I do this all the time when I want inspiration for schemes etc.. Mine ended up being quite boring, but there's a ton of awesome colours out there.

If you're thinking of allying them with a specific legion, you could tie your bots in to them too!

Yeah I was thinking dark mechanicum with ties to alpha legion for that dark gritty look with a splash of extreme light colour.

Not that I'd do alpha legion, I just like the aqua blue.

But open to anything. Just need some inspiration before the paint starts to fly. Googleing doesn't bring up that much variety - though there is a black and gold scheme on there which I like.

That sounds great Drone,

Maybe a stripe like the away shirt for Melbourne city FC.

Can't wait to see a test model.

Yeah I like gold, for that anodised hi-tech effect!
