Retribution of Scyrah WIP - Painting Tests and Tribulations

For the past few days I've been playing around with slight alterations to the privateer press standard paintjob on the Retribution of Scyrah Models.  There were a few objectives i had when coming up with a scheme; first the paintjob had to have a range from light to dark colour, secondly it had to us a minimal palette, roughly 3 or 4 colours.  I also wanted to bring out a fusion of the organic with technology.  To do this i decided to use lots of greens browns and blues all found in nature, along with white painted with NMM technique to harness a truly sci-fi feel.

This archer model demonstrates the above principles although i am debating on repainting the bow to much closer resemble the rest of the models colour.  I'm thinking of repainting the armoured parts of the bow with the white paneling featured on the armour, and then repaint the stock to have a metallic blue colour. The base has been base coated with chardonite granite, and then brought up with khemri brown and dehneb stone, a combo that i'm becoming rather fond of for various applications.  Static grass and crushed bay leaves were then added to bring some nature to the model.

Once again following the above principles, here's a work in progress shot of a Chimera Mirmadon (Warjack).  The bottom half of the model and left arm still need to be painted, in what has become a rather lengthy painting process.  I'm looking forward to having this mini finished.
