I have a small group of the old RalPartha Shadowrun armored med tech teams (9 figures) and a few vehicles.

I just can't seem to come up with a good paint plan.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Vince

In what universe do you plan to use them?

Near future. No specific setting.

Obviously, the first thing id to buy more figures! 9 is too small for much of anything. You need front-line operators, techs, some grunts, and then there is the opposition force…

Roderick, I already have all of the above. You know how it is when "one more unit syndrome" hits. My first thought was to go with a light blue uniform (like scrubs) with light whiteish tan armor. The vehicles were going to be white with some red.

Like I said that was my first idea and I'm not really satisfied with it.

What about red scrubs with light grey armor?

Generic fatigue uniform coloring, white (dirty/filthy) top with red cross?

That's not a bad idea.

You could also do something like the UK emergency vehicle scheme:
