Here is the 1st of my colour-scheme tests for colonial militia fighters in Tomorrow's War. The figure is a Rebel Minis Sahadeen fighter. As with all my 15mm scale minis, these are mounted on 1 pence pieces. The flock is from Gale Force 9, except the static grass, which is Citadel Glade Grass. The large leaves are snipped from a plastic aquarium plant. Before I paint up too many of these, I was wondering what people thought of this as an example. This will be the general palette of colours, but with variations. The militia fighters will wear a mix-&-match of captured UMC fatigues, drab/foresty civilian clothes, & vivid camo hoods suited to the colony world's flora.
I decided to go with a bright green rifle casing which matches the colonial combat androids that I've already painted up. This is to help tie the colony forces together visually, but also because the weapons used by the militia will be similarly locally-produced using simple templates (in a '3D-printing' style). The colonial weapons & droids will generally be lightweight, easy to produce & maintain; but outclassed by the rugged, tried-&-tested military tech of the UMC invaders. All colour-scheme thoughts, opinions & suggestions welcome.
