"I'm having trouble picking a color scheme for these heroic "Astro Guards" I've been working on for Star Schlock. I knocked together some quick color studies to compare them, but still can't settle on one. Do you have a preference?…"

If they are star schlockers guardsmen…the paint scheme that most looks like a Ronald mcDonald costume is the best. Big primary colours yellow and red. some very shiny brass and sequins…yes, lots of sequins. Watch a 70's era Doctor Who since the flash Gordan films weren't in color.

WTF, Tango! this call for an opinion on design is from a website from 10 months ago…I think he has probably made up his mind and moved onto other figs by now. Talk about old news…

One and seven seem like they would be the easiest to paint.
