I have one of Jon's new Special Assault Brigade troopers on my workbench and have been agonising for days over how to paint him. I want a scheme that reflects his Power Marine status yet clearly shows him to be Hi Sci Fi.
This guy and his compadres is going to create havoc on a dozen starships, fight on asteroids and generally fight man's battles 1-2-1 on the Higher Ground of space. I think they would look fantastic black, perhaps with white accents - but a Mass Effect white armour with a red helmet, red shoulder joints and shin protectors also appeals.
On the train this morning I thought about Space Marine blue - but next month I have just shy of 200 15mm 'Space Marines ' to paint and they are mostly if not wholly destined to be painted this scheme.
In the end I might just plump safe with Vallejo German Orange Ochre. There are hard battles to be fought with Tom.War on terra firma in the coming months as the houses struggle for Mudd Eisley and the spice trade.
ps Jon's updated his website with his latest releases.
