Speaking of color schemes, is anyone else a little off-put by the use of ADU blue in the blue squaddies? They are the most prevalent set, and I think a deeper color would pop better.
My favorite color by FAR is the the Vermin Vaporizer green. I just think it looks so great. Next up would have to be the red, and then orange.
I'm conflicted as far as that goes. First, I am happy to see that colour on anything other than a minifigure. However, I am don't love
the colour on white in comparison to the other colours. It looks less... vibrant. I think the regular blue would have been a better choice. That way we'd have a new colour from the helmets too
As for the other colours, I agree with you fully on the green.
If only I liked that set as much as I like the colour scheme. (I do like it more than I did before, but the mech is still stinking it up for me.) I also love how well the more pastel green contrasts with the bright lime and earthy olive of the aliens... and you couldn't ask for a better contrast than green on red. I sort of wish the whole theme was green. (although, I prefer it as is because of the multitude of new colours for that helmet! Must. Collect. Them. All.) After green, red is my favorite. Red contrasts so well with the lime and olive of the bad guys and also just looks cool
. I think Blue goes after Green for me though. Orange reminds me allot of MM. While I did not hate MM like some other memvbers do, I got tired of that colour-scheme rather quickly. Also, blue's such a nice colour.
