I think I’ve finally found my colour scheme for my IG troops. Given I like the Cadian and Catachan models and wanted to mix some of them up in the army, I’ve been searching for an urban theme that works well with both sets of models.
The first photo shows some sample troops I quickly painted. It may not make sense that the bottom bit of the jacket is a different colour to the upper part, and that the neck piece is the same as the bottom bit, but I like the scheme because it breaks up the model and provides a bit of variety in an otherwise dull colour scheme. The skin is standard (Tallarn flesh with Ogryn flesh wash and Elf flesh as the highlight). The armour plates are an urban grey as I wanted it to be a city fighting them to go with my terrain.
