    Hey there, I was leafing through my Uprising book, and while I saw that Ikari had its dark blue and orange scheme shown in art, StarCo really doesn't have anything of the sort. Does anyone have any information, maybe from previous editions, of what their livery/color scheme looks like?

    The only StarCo picture I see (from mercenary rpg book) shows Riot Grrl in their standard color (same as in the starco annoncement/buylist).

    Well, interestingly, the pic for the StarCo section of Uprising has Knauf out front, and under his winter camo he's wearing black tactical gear. There's also a TAG in the back that might be StarCo, but I can't really make out the colors well enough.

    That's Knauf's standard outfit from Outrage, before he joined StarCo.

    Now I've had a chance to look at the book the artwork is the coloured version of the Outrage cover.

    Sure, definitely. I do wonder if it would be applicable though.

    My initial thought would be to do red and white, but then I realized that red and white with a red and white StarCo badge would look kind of dumb. So I think I'm going to go black with blue & grey highlights.

    We've a pre-N3 design for the Anaconda with a prominent StarCo emblem on its chest:

    but that seems to be just the colour scheme for the TAG alone. Since I found this picture of some Alguaciles, wearing their standard red, somewhere else: StarCo in Action.jpg

    This picture gives even an answer in regard of the StarCo logo looking dumb on a red/white colour scheme. IMO red/white for armour looks always kinda dumb if its not worn by medical staff or firefighters (also: full yellow = postal service). I used a blue / yellow / dark grey scheme for all my non-Nomad troops in StarCo (check them out here) thus I'd assume your planned scheme will look good on whole StarCo.

    @Tristan228 Thanks so much for that color scheme info. That's a big help.

    White would also look absolutely fine as a part of winter / snow camo uniform. Though the most effective winter camos I had to do with (Schneetarn & Klyaksa) had dark green "blots" on white background. But that's RL observation, not necessarily applicable for the miniature scale.

    My Corregidor troops (who do pull double duty as StarCo, and in some cases - as QK too) use terracota (effectively, reddish brown) as their basic color.

    I was a bit exaggerating about the red/white scheme. ;) Although studio scheme Nomands still look a bit dumb to me despite it's red/white/black.
    Star Co in snow camouflage would be really nice! And it would be a chance to sculpt some of the miniatures proper clothing. :D

    My Corregidorians also got terracotta as their sector colour!

    My scheme is somewhat close to nomads with just a bit more white. So white with red and black, following the logo as well.
