Here are the promised group shots! The overall shiny steel effect comes together much better in these images.
Looking at them now, it reminded me of why I chose the red and blue Altdorf scheme. The blue and red can be dark enough to provide contrast against the lightest parts of the armor, while the reds can be warm enough to get me the temperature contrast as well. Most of the other possible schemes had a tendency to give only one of those benefits.
Besides, those Altdorf dandies are supposed to be the ones with the spare cash to have fancy, shiny stuff like this!
There's lots more Empire on the way! Stay tuned...
