Interesting color scheme. The terans are definitely not the their standard monochromatic selves. I like it!

Destroyer squadron and Armsmen squadron (had to switch to the newer citadel version of the orange I was using, wasn't quite a direct replacement :mellow:)

Nice to see Terrans in something other than grey! Have you considered adding an ink wash to help bring out details? The Army Painters Strong Tone would be a good match for your scheme. Leaving the engines, of course:D

they have been washed with a dark brown (umber).  They are also matte finished. 

The paint's are pretty heavy pigment (older citadel foundations) on the terran ships, and the initial wash just didn't have a huge effect.  I have thought of doing another wash on them.

Very nice, it has added more shadow. 

The Orange is still quite striking

Nicely done

Thanks.  I find the opaque paints a little hard to work with, not sure I will go that route again, but for my first fleet I am happy with the outcome.

A new arrival, Ares carrier built on contract by Hawker industries (not really liking the blue trim, might go with my old standby orange)

So I started fiddling with my airbrush and went with this color scheme very close to whats on the Veydreth gunship box.  I Not sure what color I want the engines (or nacelles or whatever you call them :) ), was thinking of blending them back to dark green.  I was also thinking of the opposite extreme some brighter contrast like khaki or even more extreme.
