    I meant the first of the last two images(the one with the white)

    I find it really striking and different from others Haqq
    Personally I'd go with a slighty lighter grey for the torso's side, dark gray for the cawl and leave the armour white

    I'm calling this guy done. Taking ideas for the base. 20200523_081754.jpg

    I like it, especially how the dark blue coat accents the rest of it. I know you said it's done, but were you not going to put lights in the stomach panels?

    I may. I was thinking they were cloth, like on Ghulams, since he's only ARM3, and I thought only metal plates got lights. But I suppose it might be metal.

    On base, I want to do dark with jade/cyan to sell the cyberpunk look on raised parts, but maybe I know it needs some color...maybe rusty metal?

    I gotcha, I haven't looked closely enough at the model to try and guess materials.

    I do like the little glow area (color test?) on the base already. Are you planning on having the base color be black, or is that what you're asking about with the rusty metal question? I think having the entire thing be rusty might be a bit much, but if the floor is mostly metal (I'm assuming you don't mean shiny metallic paints), some rust can help break up the panels.

    Industrial green with some grey chipping here and there. To contrast with the red.

    I would test in the picture, doing a quick paint over.

    Moving ahead here. Bases still works in progress. Tried green base per @Mob of Blondes but the color isn't quite it. 20200525_163050.jpg

    Darker? That one is like the green-yellow primer used in airplanes and tanks. In machine rooms you can also see tealish green or even racing green.

    I was going to say the brighter bases of the two models on the left to contrast the (prevalent) dark grey armour

    Are you suggesting green to contrast with the red parts on the models and as a nod to the trousers/markings/visor?

    Yeah it might be too much green, with light and spot color. But cool color would be good. I'm unsure still.

    I do think those models are looking pretty nice though.

    Nod? Reflection in the visor! The lights in the ground are a problem, though, they are too similar to the tealish green I suggested. But yes, the idea is something to contrast with the red.

    Pale teal.

    Racing green. Which seems to also be used for machinery.

    Plant green, and with scratches.

    My guess is that all those greens come from easy formulas in the late 1800 and early 1900. The yellow green in the base is prety much like some zinc chromates used in WW2 airplanes.
