Well James,

I actually like the ninja Kampfer look but one of my next projects is either
a camo RX-79G:

Or a splinter camo patter like on the agressor f-18's on the cover of this
months Finescale Modeler. Actually a splinter camo in space would be good
if you wanted to confuse the enemy.

This Gelgoog is a good example.

adding to that - you gotta paint your kit in a color scheme that'll make it
blend with the area it's supposed to be fighting in. You can paint it in
gray/concrete gray/whatever gray for urban combat, green camo/green and
brown for jungle warfare, etc...
unless you want to show that your kit is piloted by an ace who wants his/her
presence known on the battlefield.

-still smarting from numerous Garrick stompfausts from a sketch posted on a
local mecha mailing list...at least it almost gave Garrick a heart attack.
