    Hi all,

    I just wanted to looking for an alternative color scheme for USAriadna Black Jack model.
    The color scheme proposed by Corvus Belli (desert sand) looks nice, but, before starting painting, I`d like to check whether some of you tried different colors.

    Thanks very much.

    I personally would paint it either green to match the rest of Ariadna or black (or urban camo).

    Agreed, I'd paint it to match the armor plates and helmets on the rest of your USAriadna.

    Though if you really want to mess with people, look up some of the alternate MERDC camo schemes from the 1970s and early 1980s, like Red Desert or Gray Desert:

    MERDC has 2 small colors (black and usually one of the earth colors) and 2 large colors. Small colors cover 5% each, big colors cover about 45% each. Gray Desert would have Black and Earth Yellow as the small colors with Field Drab and Sand Brown as the big colors. Red Desert has Black and Sand Brown as the small colors with Earth Yellow and Earth Red as the big colors, and looks really alien.

    Camo is quite a pain to paint though. I did it once and while it looks alright, it's kinda messy. I'm still unsure how to do it properly.

    Well, if you actually paint the camo right, it makes your mini look "blurry."

    So you need to paint the pattern larger than it should be.

    How about this?

    Just like a power loader converted to be used as a combat armour.

    Could work nicely for the Coldfront powersuit, but the Black Jack feels more made for the purpose of fighting. Not sure if a power loader theme would fit.
