I have repeats of some squads: 2 Sturmpionere's, 2 Death Dealers, 2 Battle Grenediers, 2 Laser Grenediers, 4 Allied Snipers/Spotters and I would like some advice on how to paint them: same pattern or differentiate.
I have been inspired by Loophole Master's very recognizable units and have been doing the same: either modifying his paint schemes or coming up with my own. I plan to buy every unit in the game and where I can get deals or because I really want more than 1 particular unit I will get repeats. I have thematic items I want to keep: lasers have florenscent green where appropriate on weapons/tubing, phasers will have florenscent blue, etc.
Question for advice: Since I will be getting so many units, is it "better" for my sanity, of keeping track of units during play and in boxes, to have repeated squads being the same/similar (perhaps different helmut colour or some other highlight) or feel free to paint each squad completely differently?
ie. I have one Sturmpionere in a nice dark blue and was planning on doing a different one in more of a tan or a grey.
Take care and have a great day.
