Looking for some feedback on hassassin bahram paint schemes.
I did my ghulams as desert infantry but now that im expanding a little that colour scheme is going to get very samey and hard to distinguish on the field.

I did a farzan in a trial space station/ship scheme but it clashes with the original scheme. Looking for suggestions on blending the two or coming up with another non desert/semi desert scheme.

Can you take a photo of those models with the camera a few inches further back and, like, some sort of neutral backdrop, like a sheet of white/black cardboard or paper in the background?

It's really hard to get a feel for the Farzan's colour scheme with your camera flash reflecting off the model. smile.gif

If I had to guess right here and now, I'd say you need a stronger hue/darker yellow on the Farzan's armour plates to better complement the purple. Maybe do something with his visor to make it more distinct? A nice light blue or even a red/green would be a good trim colour to throw in amongst the yellows/tans and purples.

Cant get rid of the flash unfortunately. I dont have anywhere near good enough setup to take a photo without it.
I guess its a good thing about infinity. The models are small enough and good enough that my photography skills are beginning to cause problems.

Second picture works a treat. Thanks!

If you need to have the Ghulam and Farzan all look coherent, I reckon the easiest way to do that is paint the Ghulam fatigues purple (but leave their combat vests yellow/tan).

Farzan looks good. Maybe a purple wash on his purple suit to darken it a tad and provide a dark contrast to the bright highlights on the yellow armour?

If you're mad keen, brightening up the gun with some really subtle light grey/white highlights would be cool. Like, really subtle though.

Is his visor metallic gold? That's cool!

The gun is currently cryx bane base highlighted with grey, just way too heavily highlighted.
Once I get the scheme down the paintjob will be better.

Not really wanting them all coherent..... just more coherent than they are ? Yeah not sure what I mean here smile.gif.
